The progress looks awesome! We eagerly await more photos.

I'm pretty sure this is already taken into account for, but will the I/C still fit with the timing covers, and most importantly the crank pulley in place? The end outer edge of the pulley extends a good 5-6" from the bare block (no oil pump).

I hope we are right, although the Mark 2 is always better than the Mark 1...

I was just reading though this and realized that it was over 13 months ago that Kelly and I started working on this exhaust. Indecision on my part, waiting on parts and busy real job schedules for us both have almost killed any momentum on this project.
Hoping it all ships this week, just in time for me to start a 6 month TV show...
Maybe I can work on it over the weekends and show you guys some progress. Sometimes I think I should have bought a used GT2.

RSTI,
DON'T GIVE UP!!!

Don't do it.
Just be patient and stick to your build. You've got the dream setup and now you just need to bolt it all together. I know it takes time, I've been nursing my build for 16-ish years... it's gone through 4 revisions and it's still changing everyday. You Will Make It!

Anything I can do to help you stay on target, you let me know.

and now, dance monkey dance....

also, talk to me about that 'race prep' 901 you pimped on the porsche thread. What's the story with it, what parts does it have and are there alu-plates for side cover or intermediate plate?

Ron,
RSTI had just brought up the fact that he has a prep'd 901 - in your thread actually. So I was hoping he'd have some details on that transmission.

mine is "race prep'd" but I am curious what others thoughts are on the "race prep" title.

I am staying the course but just a little bummed that it looks like another summer without the car done.

The 901 was built by a guy in the PCA Maverick region that raced an old 911. I bought it about 15 years ago and have moved too many times to know where the info that came with it is. He said it had different "race" gearing but I have never opened it. I paid $1,000 at a DE in Dallas and was assured by the other racers attending that it was a good deal. Still sits in the crate it came in. $500 plus shipping from Santa Fe if anyone is interested. Does not have an intermediate plate that I can tell and no billet side plate. I think this trans pre dates those pieces in a build. Not putting it in my Super Beetle so someone buy it. PM an email and I will send photos if interested. If anyone wants to pay for someone in Albuquerque to open it and look, I will take it there...

While I wait for the last few things to be done and the unit shipped I thought I might show you some of the ideas that were dropped and why...



The rear engine was not good for intercooler cooling. In one mockup using a same size Driscoll strawberry flat and two SPAL fans was this idea that Kelly and I went over. Ultimately when I was not sure it would cool enough and would be so big, I decided to go with the water cooled intercooler. But as you can see this one got as far as the fans.

If the car could have been easily skirted, I might have tried the Chapparal sucker car idea...

Looking forward to the next phase. Btw, are u using the dry sump to scavenge the turbo or is it high enough to gravity exit?
We've also got 4 people about ready to go on the sabaru gears group buy if you are still interested.

Hey Ron,
In the above engine picture you can just see a stainless can sump like the 935 under the turbo. It uses a separate lobe on the dry sump pump and pumps through an AN-8 hose with an AN-6 sump breather hose that goes back to the block for some suction leftovers. It hangs down less then the headers in ground clearance.

What is the cost of the Subigears package and what does it consist of. May not jump in now as I need to modify my Super Beetle Convert like I need a dose of clap right now... Another unfinished project...

Cool, I had thought that's what that small tank was but wasn't sure.
Full Monty kit (gear, flanges, pinion depth tool, plug) $1850 from $2200. If kit+mount then $2050 from $2500.

I probably should just keep pouring the money into this project first... but maybe after this one is done I can Subi my Beetle.

Tigworks is local and I kept asking him wtf that set up was for. Was hoping it was for an old bug, but this would be the next best thing haha. Ive seen all his photos as the progress gets closer and closer to being done.

Great project!

Thanks Boostin23. I worked a little on it today and will be excited to get the Tigwerks parts so I can figure out chassis pickup points for the engine trans and start bending roll cage and chassis tubes. I thought about putting this into my 79 Beetle but decided to keep this the insane one and it more subtle.

About to roll into 16 months on the Tigwerks header/AWIC/intake without much luck. Damn this is a pain in the ass...
