Is it common to not use lexan for the rear windshield, or are you guys just not considering it for this build at this point?

You can use it for sure to save weight. performance plastics has some nice kits.
It is easy to replace afterwards though, so we kept a few $$ here as the originals we had at the shop were in good shape, and as it is the RA units for groupN cars are 1mm thinner (hence lighter) than the USDM items.

Radiator piping all installed and hooked up, SPAL fans hooked up (at 1350 CFM each !!!)
Rear doors all installed and fixed into place.

Onto turbo installation and manifold setup with the 321ss. Easy to make a CFD approved design, but another to make it happen now .... This is one of those examples that an engineer says "do this" and the reality is "ah ****ttt" ....

Default Wiring Harness

Finally getting pictures posted of some progress. Started to layout items for the wiring loom installation and came across this, anyone spot what is wrong??



Preparing the main bus bars as well as the DCCD controller unit to be mounted to the floorpanels as low as possible.



We then made a mock-up table to put all the items in there proper location.
This helps when you need to order wire / supplies as well. Lets you calculate easier what is needed, and what goes were.



Lightweight Fireproof sheathing helps slow the spread of fire and keeps everything neat and tidy. Not expensive, easy to work with, and does a really nice job. Better than std electrical tape, that's for sure!



Lots more to go ....



A good trick when using any signal sensors (cam, crank, wheel speed, etc) twist the wires together. This helps minimize field distortions. This is IN ADDITION to using the proper magnetically shielded wire as well.



All the chassis loom comes in under 10 lbs now. This is a saving of over 60lbs.



After laying out a template on cardboard, we drilled out the locations for the fuses and LED lights. This is a clean way to make a nice loom without spending 6$k on a PDM. The PDM makes it much cleaner, lighter, and easier to configure the loom though. Especially when coupled with and OBR membrane switch panel...



Finally, rear trunk latches installed as well. The carbon trim is bonded to the trunk lid, and the latches are riveted through both. This helps reduce the chance of things cracking with the vibrations.

Nice work. No need to spend $6k on a PDM though, the MoTeC PDM15 can be had for about 1/3 of that

I was actually referring to the OBR unit with the membrane dash.
The PDM15 I don't think has enough channels for a touring car with flashers, horns, wipers, etc, etc, etc

That's true unless you double things up on one output. We ended up needing to upgrade to a PDM30 (still about 1/2 the cost of the OBR).

Forgot to add, we finished the turbo inlet pipe today with "X" design that was worked out by an engineering friend of mine. So turbo and exhaust are almost wrapped up as well.
I am getting REALLY close to starting the car, how far are you still?
hehehehe

i love this build, so many inspirational ideas.
2 questions:
where did you get all your goodridge lines and fittings supplied from I'm in canada (calgary) to but can't find any online suppliers close to here?
more info on the harness. fireproof sheathing and maybe a diy on redoing/ pinning the connectors?
looking forward to see Leo in action tomorrow at RMR

I second this! Been looking for Goodridge stuff as well, and the only results are a few brake line kits

I'm in Toronto.

We stock a lot of the higher end goodridge items here. Well, we stock what we use anyhow.
Send me an e-mail with what you are looking for. We can do the crimp fittings as well if you need. I don't have a tester rig though, and brake lines I will only sell the bulk bits with re-usable ends, or the G-Stop kits that are crimped from Goodridge directly.

The only ends I will crimp will be fuel / oil lines in the 600, 811, or 911 series hoses. Steel or Aluminum (in the 600 series) aluminum in the 811 or 911 series.

Using the new MoTeC keypad It's actually very reasonably priced, probably not much more than a bunch of mil spec switches and all the extra wiring.

Not the greatest picture, but it is a picture.
We finished the NEW MSI fuel rails for testing, one set going on our race car, the other going out to Fine Line Imports.
