I'm planning on relocating the fuse box, which seems like I may need to extend the alternator wiring, but I'm hoping that is it

Got center console all set up, found a nice black lid and got a new e-brake boot for the new console so should have this shifter mounted and new console all setup shortly. Only thing missing is boost controller

So I am in the process of also changing from the typical water neck/rubber hose coolant passage to the radiator, and changing it to A/N, black braided line. Question is, I bought this Moroso filler neck, which has 16an male thread:

http://www.jegs.com/i/Moroso/710/634...FUKBswodKAoD7Q

I was planning on just getting a 90 degree 16an to 16an hose end, and than running hose like you would typically do. I just measured my stock rubber hose, and I'm getting an I.D of 1.5". I just did some conversions online for 16an hose, and I'm getting that that only has an I.D. of .875". Would that be a problem to be going that much smaller from stock?

For me I think going that much smaller "could" be an issue and I wouldn't want to chance it for the amount of $$ you'll be putting into it.

Also, make sure you use the fittings and hose from the same MFR. To help lower costs I didn't and it bit me b/c the -20 hose wouldn't fit the -20 fittings due to the different MFR's specs.

okay guys looking for a little help. Starting to tuck as much wiring as I can before I get these Scott rod panels welded in. On the passenger side main harness, there are 3 plugs I can't remember or figure out where these things go. Anybody have any clue?

Got it all figured out if this will ever help someone in future.

Very top plug goes to fan
middle round red circular plug goes to a/c compressor
bottom yellow is MAF

So here is the finished product. Can't really think of anything else to do on the motor. Goal is to bring the car to shop for scott rod panels sometime mid-end of april, hopefully get it back by may, and shooting to have engine in car by June.





The new a/n fitting setup so I can have some more flexibility with this upper hose around the turbo:

Got a good bit done today getting the car ready for scott rod panels. Got all the passenger side wiring and harness tucked. Wasn't terribly difficult, just time consuming removing all the tape/loom and running it as necessary. To give an idea of a before & after:







And the part I've been dreading for a while. Next will be driver side:

Got a good bit done on the driver side. Removed all the battery wiring since I'm doing a relocation as well. Doesn't seem all that crazy, just very time consuming. Does the harness that goes to the underside of the fuse box have a connector or are they all individual wires?

Ended up disconnecting the fuse panel from all the connectors from the inner fender and pulling it inward. Didn't have to cut or do anything to the inner fender or fuse panel itself. There were actually quite a few connectors that had to come off on the inside, i think it was 4-5, some were a pain...but got them all undone and was able to just pull the fuse panel from the inside out of the opening. Obviously, now I'll need to run the harness under the rail and tuck it up under the inner fender and I still have some gauge wiring and fuel pump wiring I'll need to re-run, but its getting there:

Getting close. Just have to make a bracket to mount the fuse box to the inner rail and reconnect the harness pieces to the inner fender and it's all set to go. Probably a few more hours and everything should be about done:

What are you going to do with the downpipe/exhaust? I don't see a v-band flange on it to run more exhaust piping.

Define "street legal"...

lol no in all serious, I'll have to think of a work around for that. In NJ at 25 years you can go under historic vehicle so that's what I'm banking on in the long run

Only reason I ask is if there is limitations on exhaust exit. The authorities frown upon exhaust exiting in front of the passenger compartment in my state. That's why I chose to dump under the car instead of exiting the bumper.

Yeah I'm sure I'll run into issues here and there. I'm sure I'll have to say a Hail Mary every time I drive it, but time will tell!

Surprisingly enough, turbos keep noise down at lower rpm as to not alert everyone, but cracking the blade on the throttle and the cats outta the bag.

Can anybody shed any light on running the Sullivan upper intake vs. the 6061 on a 2v?

I've got nothing on it other than it looks nice and a lot of fast cars are using it. What info were you looking for?
I don't think there's a performance advantage with it just cosmetics and any issues working around the inlet tube if working on the car.
I'm not a fan of the looks of our 6061's and I keep thinking about designing something else but so far I haven't come up with a kewler design that is also a side mount b/c I don't like the inlet tube routing over the alt. on my car.

Agreed, I can't find much info on any forums where 2v's are running them in higher boost applications. Eh, same as you. I'm not a huge fan of the 6061 setup. And was more thinking that it may be easier to run cold side piping with a forward facing plenum. From the guys I've talked to that have either ran the Sullivan upper or are just very knowledgeable in the field said performance should be the about same.

Going to run a turbo guard and possibly pick up a good flowing K&N for when the time comes to do some comparison tests.



At this point, wire tuck is completely done and panels are ready to go. Have to call the body shop Monday night to see if I can schedule a day for drop off to get these things welded in and the engine bay painted. If it won't be a few weeks until I can drop it off I may just work on trying to get the new k member and a arms in while the car sits

For those of you who did battery relocation to your trunk...did you have to drop the fuel tank to mount the battery box to the floor? I started looking at it today and I don't see how it would be possible to mount this box without at least dropping and hanging the tank. The floor looks like its double reinforced and I would have no access to even get to the back of the bolt hole. Thanks

That makes sense. I was planning on just putting it where I used to have my trunk mount meth tank installed which is more towards the passenger side rear corner. Figured could just bolt the box down and at least start to run the lines. Started mocking it up and when looking underneath it seems like the tank will at least need to be dropped on the passenger side and probably filler neck removed for any sort of access to get to the backside of the bolt holding down the box.

My meth tank is in the very rear corner also and is held down with two bolts that I can barely get to w/o removing the gas tank.
Yea, just make it easy on yourself and locate the battery where it's easy to work with when you need to.
