So I'll end up selling my 16G and Sti Pinks as a package once the new stuff is on.

After talking to a bunch of turbo places everyone said that the TD06-20G will be the best turbo for my setup if I am planning on running pump gas. All the other turbos that I was looking at really bring extra gain when running meth or race gas. Everyone said it isn't worth the extra cost if I wouldn't be running these. So I am quite happy with my decision.

Turbo should be shipped out 2nd day air next week. Here is what you get with Deadbolt's Water/Oil cooled ZILLA TD06H-20G:
- Black Xtreme(TM) coating-turbine housing
- Grey Ceramic coating-compressor housing
- Monster Port(TM)
- Metal coolant supply lines
- Coolant supply banjo bolts
- Coolant supply banjo seals
- Oil return line with new gasket and bolts
- Stainless steel downpipe studs

And.. FREE REBUILDS FOR LIFE

Stay tuned... as soon as this guy arrives there will be lots of pictures... So far the plan is that the car will undergo its build in 2 weeks.. pending shop availablily

Plus... as a sneak peak.. there are current plans for JUN style hood modifications... both the vent at the front and the raised vent at the rear Just working through the plans for this now.


I wanted to check them out bc you gave them such a great review so far, but I think you should check out their website again brcewane...

Is he an employee there or was the website hijacked?

oh good

Now you can tell them and maybe you'll get a bonus or something!
Hopefully I will be fixed soon, I want to look through their inventory.

The fuel filter/lines/an fittings came in.. Man that fuel filter is small


Then I decided to take apart the spare alternator so that I could paint up the casing. I'm glad I had this one as a spare because I destroyed it LOL.. everything was seized so I ended up drilling out some of the screws. It took me all afternoon to get this thing apart. I had the freaking impact gun on the pulley nut for what seemed like forever.. I also hammered out the bushing that is used for the AC compressor to connect to it.

I think I will be taking my existing alternator to an alternator build shop and have them switch the casing once I have it painted so that I don't screw it up

Started with this...


Ended up with this:


And will be painting the casing with gloss silver and the band on the outside of the wrapped wires with the black. Much like Neil did with his build.

Ok.. let me know when you are going and what kind of deal we can get.

If I'm getting them polished I'd be looking to do the following:
- Alternator
- Turbo heat shield
- Downpipe heat shield
- Throttle body housing
- APS BOV
- Throttle cable bracket
- valve covers

I'm going to be heading to Fastenal on the way to work one of these days to either pick up stainless steel or nickel plated hardware to replace the stock stuff. Let me know if you want me to pick you up some as well.

The springs are tricky.. I think the best you can do is clean them up with a small wire brush attachment on your dremel.. I think D Money couldn't figure out what to do there either.

If you paint them they will be sure to flake

Are you talking about the harness plugs??? Not sure yet, I might extend the wires and hide them

Hopefully I can start to mock-up the panels in cardboard tonight.. I have attempted to draw the lines in a somewhat perspective view. I needed to get the AC lines out of the way so that I could start to make my templates. Now that I ripped them out yesterday, we should be good to go

The idea is providing panels that will look smooth and cover up the nastiness of the battery tray, the holes etc. While also providing "channels" for hiding the wiring harness with the least amount of wire extension and tucking. This should keep the margin of error of a wiring mishap down but still clean up the engine bay. The goal is to have each side of the engine bay have a one piece panel that will cover both the bottom and side for a cleaner look that two panels for each side.

The idea is that the bolts for securing it to the fender wall will be counter sunk and covered over. They will use existing holes in the fender and then washers and bolts will be attached from the outside.

I am going to be using that little plastic box for a distribution block of the Positive battery terminal where it will connect to the 4gauge wire going back to the battery in the trunk. It will all be hidden under the panels. it will pop up into the plastic box through the circle in the battery tray.

Keeping the panels up on top of the battery tray should provide clearance for wiring to run underneath it.

At least, that is the plan

I did a little bit of mock-up in cardboard tonight and quickly realized it wasn't going to give me the smooth lines that I am after.

So I'll likely be switching to creating a frame and stretching polyester felt over it and hitting it up with some fiberglass.... then the usual of sand.. sand.. sand

I'll likely join it up with some ABS plastic sheets for where I need the straight flat panels.

I'm thinking about having a new mount fabricated for the BOV and get a new pipe bent for where the old BOV outlet is. It just looks really weird mounted to the spot where the existing flange is and I would like to move it to the new spot. The idea would be a flange with some bolts welded into it so I could just secure it with a couple of nuts.

Wanting to have it all done in stainless steel.



Firewall is already starting to look better with all that AC crap gone off of there. Now that those hoses are gone there is room for me to mount the fuel distribution block up on top of the pitch mount bracket.


I also temporarily stuck the emblem where it will be going. I'll make a nice little surround covered in Carbon fiber to mount to this spot. I figured I would stick it there to see what it looked like.


I'm hoping to have a bunch of time this weekend to try and get some more done.

The carnage continues

Man there is a lot of crap attached to that intake manifold!! Since I am going to be putting the coolant reservoir where the AC compressor was before, I took out the hard line going over to that area... Crappy thing was that when I removed it the coolant system decided to create a siphon and tried to purge itself!!

So I had to clamp off the hose with a vice grip.. it was like a scene from ER where I had a bleeder and I was looking for a clamp and suction

Today I'm going to drain the coolant system so that I can remove the fans. I'll be matching up my mishimoto rad with their slimline fans and shroud. Lots of gazing at the engine bay right now devising my plan of how to simplify the mess of hoses and wires

lookin good so far. lots of hoses and wires man. looks like you got a ton of replacing to do. but it still looks ten times better already then mine. i have just the intake mani off and painted, i wanted to make the wire harness smaller somehow and not so noticable.
