Thx. Dave.

 

 

           Ok i was able to get alot done this weekend.  The headers and supports are on for good, When i was Doing the decal's for the headers i left a tube loose on the passenger side and when i reglued it i didn't get it exactly where it was before so now that turbo is a little further away from the firewall then the driver side, no biggie just buggs me lol , I also got  the intake with the throttle cable installed. I got the cold side for the turbos all roughed in, Where you see the aluminum tube that will be where the V-band clamps go and i will also have some down where the tubes connect to the turbo's. I was also able to get the wheelie bar installed for good. Just waiting on the Mag and fuel pump from Jim.

Joe... Killer work bud. Man that engine is awesome and the details are coming together. I love this build. Headers look great installed and so does wheelie bars. I need to purchase some of those wheelie bar wheels from Jim. And the start of the cold side to the turbo looks great. Can't wait to see how you make the vband clamps. I can't wait to see the next update.

You're doing stellar work on this, Joe.  Keep it up.  Headers/turbos and wheelie bar setup both look great!

Thx. Guys appreciate it. So i played hookie from work today and figured while i was home i would mess with the car some. I  had to thin the hood portion of the front clip to fit because my intake sat to high, I had just enough to make it work. It was getting scary thin, Hope the mag clears lol. I have never been a big fan of the Bull-Horn exhaust outlets and would never put them on my 1:1 drag car but i have never seen Bull-Horns on a model drag car yet, I know i seen some pics and Dave(comp1839) was messing with it for his outlaw car, But for some reason i just like them on here and i think i'm going to run with it instead of the flush mount exhaust. Biggest pain is going to be trying to drill out that rod for the outlet. I may shorten it a little so it is closer to the car. Give me some feedback.

Flat out awesome work. The headers and wheelie bars look great.  If you go with the bullhorn, how will you remove the front clip?  Whatever you decide, I know it's going to be a clinic on execution. I'm looking forward to your next update.

Thx. Rick, You can see in this picture the front clip where the exhaust  exits is a slot for front end removal.

The bull horns look great on this build. I used them on my 1/25th scale slot car.

Thx. Guys, were gonna roll with it. i cut the end and glued a section of tube on the end and drilled out the lower some, once painted black inside i think it will look good. I put a coat of primer on it to how it looks., the door even opens lol.

Much props Joe... not only is it an A+ due to the fact that this is your first scratch build... (yeah right...lol) and the fact that you went turbo... and are killing it I might add... make this one of my favorite builds period...

I like the detail of the supporting brace for the turbo/header assembly - well executed.

How did you get such a centered and straight hole in the end of the bullhorn?

Thx. Tyrone, means a lot coming from a great builder such as yourself, I learned a lot watching your builds and it pushes me to make mine as nice and detailed as yours.
