    Why did you go away from your custom sheet metal intake to the Holley setup? Runner angle? Pretty?

    the sheetmetal intake I had someone build wasn't anything close to what I'd asked for as well as wouldn't fit the engine due to cooling pipes etc, that and the lack of symmeticality was hurting my brain. This is much easier

    Is it the angle of the pics? It looks like your front wheels are not centered in the wheel arch? Negative Caster? Or just an optical illusion?

    optical illusion coupled with me mounting the flares slightly off center for tire clearance at lock

    I just read through this thread.
    Beautiful build, congrats on this masterpiece!

    Mind if I ask what the specs were on the first turbo (initial single turbo build?) as im designing my 1uz build around a single turbo for autox.
    I came across a 6262 Gen 1 with a .82ar hotside and anti surge inlet.
    Initally I thought its too small but you seem to have proven that wrong.

    Original turbo was a ball bearing t4 flanged 0.81AR 6262

    It'll be fine and has been proven support over 700whp

    Decided to get rid of the mild steel 2x3" frame rails and replace them with 1.625x0.083 chromoly round tube to increase the strength and drop some weight, not to mention new turbo placements allowing for better weight distribution

    A few updates



    Rough placement



    Made some new turbo collectors


    Motor all mounted, new turbo locations and manifolds built


    Lots of stuff yet to go

    Steve your really something. No qualms at all of what you've done to this silly little beast. Anal as can be; a true craftsman. Would be a pleasure just to see the rear hauling ass away from me lol. You have my vote for the next installment of Members Rides!

    A little update

    I wanted to do this before the show but never had time

    I cut that giant Intercooler in half and built new end tanks, then covered the fragile area with some fine stainless steel mesh to protect them from rocks



    And built a new custom radiator, the old radiator was only 12" tall and had that Intercooler obstructing the airflow, this one is now 18.5" tall with an un-obstructed airflow, hopefully my cooling issues are a thing of the past with 50% more cooling capacity and way more airflow




    Here's a pic showing where the intercoolers are mounted now, hence the need for the stainless screen to protect them. The cold pipes are just tacked up, I need to sandblast the old powdercoat off them, weld them up and re-powdercoat them and then they'll be "strong like ox!"
