Yeah it's going out the side. I just need to find a buddy with a plasma cutter so I can blow a hole in the fender liner and fender.

As others have said the HP gain is massive and my neighbors are car people. When I bought my house it had 150ft black marks in front of it haha

My goals did involve cheap, this is cheap and fast, hell... most will say this is an ugly ass exhaust too. So I'm nailing all three

My buddy gave me his old exhaust off his 2016 cummins for free, so im making the best use I can. Most of it it 3.25 at the bends but steps up to 4 at the straight parts. The fender hole will be 4". I want to put a sideways flapper on it and paint it green so the cops dont notice as much haha.

Made a junkyard run and grabbed a spare flex fuel sensor, truck oil extension, pt cruiser two speed fan and taurus fuel pump inertia switch. All for $25.

The fan required some cutting and is a crazy tight fit. Worst case I chop off the threads on the water pump, then I would have plenty of room.

The truck oil neck extension thing should be minty fresh now. The wastegate will sit right between the expansion tank and the oil neck.

Progress is being made, and that makes me happy. The inertia switch is just a piece of mind type deal.

I will be running the factory 240 radiator so i need all the airflow management I can get. Made this little piece to funnel the air through the rad instead of it sneaking around it. Should give me my best chance.


The rad is brand new so I figured I would try it out before I throw it out. I think with a good shroud/electric fan and good airflow management it stands a chance of working.

if your super worried about space you can go with a 2010+ camaro water pump and 3/4" spacers. I have a 2002 camaro water pump with spacers but the pulley is the same width as the truck but the 2010+ has the shorter width pulley

Not terribly worried, and that solution involves a bit of money. If it is too close I'll cut off the threads of the pump till I have a 1/4" clearance.

I appreciate the solution though!

Here are a few photos of the PT Cruiser 2 speed fan on the 240 NA radiator for anybody interested.




Had to do a fair amount of trimming but this is probable the largesr diameter fan with a shroud you can physically fit on this radiator.

Is that radiator big enough? why just use 92 940 radiator with a 940 960 fan?

This is free and I already had it is why.

If it doesnt work Ill grab a 940 radiator and redo it. Who knows, it may work just fine. As long as I can let it idle for 30 min on its own without overheating I'll be happy.

I haven't seen anybody try so i figured what the hell, why not find out if it'll work. It's my project car not my DD. It's the same reason Im going to adapt the factory shifter to work with the TH350 and Im reuseing the AC condenser as a rear mounted trans cooler with the AC pusher fan setup to keep everything cool.

I would just do a c4 vette radiator off eBay. Way wider then the 940 rad, thicker and like 120 shipped

That was the other choice I was going to go with. I've heard it is a great fit too.

Got the serp belt picked up. I have a 6 rib 71.1" length but I think a 71.5" would be perfect. The tensioner is currently at the upper mark. This is for large case alternator and no PS with the ICT billet idler relocation pulley. I grabbed the relocation pulley because Matt Happel(denmah, sloppy mechanics guy)said he kept throwing belt with that long ass run from alternator to crank.


Also I'm gratefull to have a garage but it'd ve nice if I didnt have to pull the engine over the fender because I can't pull it forward. #firstworldproblems

Put mine on dollies and pushed it to a diagonal position in the garage - made enough room in the corner to get engine out from the front. Have a steep concrete pad/driveway and was concerned if I got the hoist out there, it was goin’ to the “bottom”.

Yeah that's the one.

Did some more work today. Finished oil feed, oil drain, windage tray modifications and the oil pan installed. Included a pic of the engine not on its side. Makes my head hurt looking at that picture.





I got a little sneaky with the oil feed. It was also too short to come from my origonal location above the oil filter.





Here's the upright shot of belt routing lol

Thanks, I didnt like it ran up and over the intake and I didnt have enough to go from the oil cooler place I was planning. This actually works amazing and Im very happy it worked out like this.

Final update for the day. Welded up the passenger manifold, now to build the rest of the crossover. Easy part is done. 2" vband. It didnt want to weld until I preheated both parts a lot. Then she stuck together real nice like.

The long run from crank pulley to alt was allowing too much belt "whip" or whatever it's called. He threw the idler relocation thing on there and hasn't thrown one yet.

Got some work done on the crossover. Still more to do.


The Craftsman C3 drill earned its place in the garage today. Drilled 2 2" holes through pretty thick material. The air coming out of the motor was hot enough I needed to move my hand out of the way. Haha. Motor didnt burn up though.
