I have large liquid syphon CO2 bottles at work so I can fill the small ones or take them with me if I need to. I also will be streeting this car so will use outside and inside intercooler water/meth spray for street use. At this point I am not worried as much about producing big power numbers as I am getting the power to the ground.

I don't suppose you have the old headers sold yet? If not, what are you asking?

Ambrynmc, I still have the Outfront headers, they are listed here on Nasioc in for sale engine thread. I need to sell them to feed the Nasty Beast...

Sure try this. If it does not work do a search for "Outfront headers"

Boomba we are using your throttle body that you shipped to Tig-Werks for his fab work. Pictures coming soon.

I built a Manx with my father in the 70s and bought this one to build with my daughter. It took two years (!) for this body to be delivered and she had moved on by then. Boys, real cars, etc. So it has become more of a Franken-STEEN as the longer it takes, the badder it gets. So pressing to finish before May of this year. The front suspension from Mendeola is requiring that we cut off the entire bug front suspension mounts and rebuild the tubing. We will be tying this into the side Nascar / SUV bars. With the rear suspension and the spacing of the front suspension we have gained 4 inches in wheelbase and now are at a whopping 84 inches.

Very nice work. What EMS are you running? I joined this site to figure that part of my swap out. I am loading an engine from a 2010 STI (EJ257 i think?) into my 1959 VW bus. I am having a hard time locally because all of the people around here who deal with these kinds of swaps integrate the EMS into the body harness. Mine, like you buggy, has no harness in the car at all. My guy locally suggest an AEM universal box. Any suggestions or direction would be awesome. Thanks

Hal

Hey Dirty Hands, I will be running a Hydra stand alone ECU. I will have a modified STi engine harness with a custom chassis electrical harness. Lots of wiring ahead.

After working non-stop on a television series for the last four months, I am hoping to get back on the project.

In the mean time Kelly at Tigwerks has started the header/intercooler/intake build. A couple pictures from last weeks start up.

Hey Ron, Here's a better shot of the ARE pan that Element uses.

Cool. Just reading up in the pump and sump pan. I really should be using one, my 912 is really low. I may try to use a stock 911 oil tank and tig on the AN bungs. Thanks for the idea

I agree it does not seem to be anything special that a flat plate and a fabricated sump with pickups could not do. The seal around the oil pump pickup would be a little fab work but not that tough.
