With a little luck I am going to take a ton of picts tonight. I currently have the motor sitting in the car for test fitting reasons. There's no clutch in there and lots of other stuff missing so its coming back out soon. In the meantime I can at least see how things fit together.

Ok, so first up is my new Beatrush Bulkhead Division Plate. I just set it in place for this picture but you should be able to get the point. The idea here is that it will add a layer of fire protection between the passengers and the trunk. The plate isn't exactly designed as a fire barrier but it is metal were the seat is just foam. This should give me and any passengers in the back a few extra seconds in the event of a catastrophic fuel system failure.









As I said in post 176, I decided to set the motor in the engine bay to test fit a few things. I didn't put the clutch on so it took all of five seconds to do this.





I actually pulled the bracket that I made for the fuel block apart before I took the pict (stupid) but trust me, it fits perfectly. As you can see, the -10 line enters from the passenger side of the trans and hits that nice 45 degree hose adapter at the perfect angle. I am very pleased with how this turned out.




Everybody is so curious about how the turbo will sit in the engine bay. Here it is!






This header fits so amazingly well I cant believe it. I have a Mishimoto X-Line racing rad which is super thick and the Moore header fits with the STOCK fans!




There were also lots of questions regarding the header sticking down below the front subframe. Basically its at the exact same spot that my GT-Spec header was in terms of height. I also did a quick test fit of the under tray and it bolts right on without any issues.




The Killer B oilpan is exactly that, "kill". It just looks so nice in there:

Well, I am unfortunately heading to Denver for the next 12 days for work. I look forward to lots of progress when I get back. Talk to you guys in a little under two weeks.

I just got word form Moore Performance that my revised intercooler pipes are just about finished (I had them start working on them about five days ago). I am not sure I mentioned it before but the Moore solution to plump up an Evo turbo using an APS FMIC is to reverse the flow of the FMIC pipes (counter clockwise) by totally replacing the drivers side pipe and modifying the passenger side. From what I understand, the pipes should be finished around the time I am back from Colorado so hopefully I will have some picts pretty soon.

Hm, do you know how much shorter your intercooler pipes are going to be with the reverse fitment? Or if they even are shorter?

I guess we'll know when when you get them...

There was a Cobb car that had something like that. Turbo rotated behind the intake manifold, above the tranny bellhousing. Filter ponted towards the drivers side shock tower. Looked efficient/cool/expensive.

Here it is:

The issue that I run into now is that the oil cooler works to well on the street and the car cant maintain the correct temps (to cold). Trust me, you dont want to bother unless you actually need an oil cooler.
Isn't that what the thermostat is for? I'm asking because I have an '05 DD with an FP green set up and a process west cooler however I don't have a thermostat so I'm not sure what to do at this point. I think it would be more beneficial to completely remove it after reading a few posts similar to the one I'm quoting. Obviously we have two completely different purposes in mind as you're building a track beast and I'm pushing 90k mi on a stock block DD.

Great build! Keep the pics coming please and thanks for sharing.

GREAT stuff!! Lots of interest to detail, really looking forward to your progress. I do have a small doubt regarding the turbo, Is the downpipe portion of the turbine housing right now looking upwards? I'm thinking about the downpipe for this setup.

Congratulations on the progress that's been already made and wish u the best of luck meeting and exceeding your own expectations!

Nice, very nice. Except for that coolant hose in front of the oil pan. If you would have ordered a different water pump (the one without the line to the oil cooler, the 21111AA065) you could have replaced the coolant plug in the block. Cleaner and more reliable. But still, that is a nice setup

I pulled the hose nipple from the pump in my build and tapped it for 1/4"NPT and plugged it. I then drilled out the block plug and 1/8" NPT tapped/plugged it. It all worked out nicely and was clean. Hope this helps Dex.

Guys, when I said that the filter thing would be new I was speaking about a new product offering not a new concept.

Martin,

I understand what you're saying about the coolant line but I am a little beyond that point now. I opted to keep it as it was because didn't think it need changed. If I had to do it all over again I would do it like you're suggesting.

The turbo setup is part of a kit which fits just fine. Check out the Moore website for picts.

Another option would have been the Litchfield twin scroll turbos.

Those are cool but based on that link you posted the turbos cost MORE than large framed FP turbos and they are rated at lower power levels.

I wish. I have not even stuck my head in the garage since I got home from my trip. I am in the middle of an IT security audit at work (I am the engineer conducting the audit) and everybody at my house including me has the flu. My daughter (pict on the first page) had to be taken to the ER the other day due to a 105.6 fever! She's fine now and we are all on the road to recovery but it's going to take a few days.

I am actually supposed to meet up with Ryan Moore from Moore performance tomorrow to pick up my second to final load of parts. With a little luck it will only be a bit more.
