Bezel



Not sure what shifter Zack ended up using in his race car? But he used the same boot as mine with a bezel as well IIRC.

Got the old intake off. Unfortunately my old rail won't fit the new one. I'll have to figure something out. Got the injectors packed up to get mailed and cleaned and flowed.

LOL! I was waiting to see if you replaced those OE popsicle sticks. I used the Heinous CA's and even with N/A and 4.10s it breaks the rears loose on the 1-2 even without WOT. This build thread is insane!!

The came in handy (old ones). My sister has a beat p71 (has bullet holes and all). Her arms wore out and she came to see me at work the following Monday from me swapping the arms out. Lucky her mine were still usable.


I still need the watts arms.

I did just order the tce brake lines. Still need the calipers and frt rotors to finish out that swap.

I have a shifter bezel ordered

Got my stereo all wired and installed. Got the factory temp gauge working.

Got all the frt brake components in except tce brake lines (should be today). Got the stuff mocked up and my frt wheels don't even come close to fitting . Guess I'll be stepping the frts up to 20" sooner then I thought.

Got my tce lines in and finished test install. Just waiting on the new front wheels to come in to test fit before painting the calipers.


Working on relocating the turbo/exhaust etc. Continuing progress to clean up the engine bay... Current state...
2019-02-03_02-02-43 by Cheapthrillb2, on Flickr

Also working on relocating the radiator to under the core support instead of behind it.



I should also have my new metco watts arms Monday from mo's speed shop. That Marty sure is a great guy.

Sunday morning coffee update. Seems to be when I do it lol.

Hooked up with Marty on some new metco watts. to Marty.

Got those installed and a new pivot.

Also got the front calipers painted and installed along with tce brake lines front and rear. Question, are the 4 hose brackets at the frame supposed to be the same? Rears didn't come close to fitting. Ended up drilling a hole in each side to fit the bracket in the rear, not a big deal.

20190209_130732 by Cheapthrillb2, on Flickr

20190209_130750 by Cheapthrillb2, on Flickr hose looks funny but clears.

New wheels clear the brakes.

20190207_175934 by Cheapthrillb2, on Flickr


I found this USB port on Amazon that perfectly replaces the socket with no changes to the housing. Just need to adapt the +/- to it.
20190206_213958 by Cheapthrillb2, on Flickr

My exhaust kit came in so I've been reworking that, moving the turbo and routing the downpipe differently.
2019-02-09_02-05-50 by Cheapthrillb2, on Flickr



I gotta get the exhaust done to the trans crossmember along with a handful of other items as I need to pull the 4L80 out to get it freshened up by the end of the month. Local track opens early April weather permitting.

I remember grinding a little off the bracket to make them fit.
Like you said no big deal.

My dumbass installed the rear lines on the front first and bled them out, then went to the rear and realized I fawked up. The rears on the front fit pretty decent.
