Perfect would be good to see. Ive took a little 10mm lip off on the underside of the leg approx 3" at the gearbox for a little extra clearance but not gone chopping sections out.
It was a weird one, the turbo come with the usual 4 threaded studs but the manifold was also threaded so had to drill the some manifold threads out, remove 3 of the studs and drill the turbo threads out too but keep the 1 stud as i couldnt bolt straight through that one. It couldnt then go the other way round as theres no room for a nut because of the manifold design. Im glad it still fits thoughLooks awesome. How come you have mounted the turbo that way round ?
Cheers, and it was the plan but room is tight! The shiney end of the filter will be sprayed black, not sure if i should do the intercooler too. And ive spoke to ed at fusion who will do me a base map and he suggested using the s14 maf.I'm sure the 200SX MAF is smaller than the Gti MAF and more restrictive?
I'm liking the filter and intercooler location though. Not doing a sleeper then?
Its on the cold side of the cooler though? And the pipe from the rocker could still be fitted after the maf if needed or into a catch can? (Obviously if the turbo shits itself the oil will reach the maf eventually) main reason ive put the maf there is because theres only a few inches before its into the engine so less chance of being innacurate. And ill be getting nistune fittedI've only just noticed your MAF is post-turbo. I'd be sceptical of it getting baked and covered in oil at a fairly quick rate there. It will let you run a proper BOV in that position but the longevity and signal quality would be compromised.
What management are you running?
Water pump belt is a nightmare with the engine in the car but altenator isnt too bad, i do have plans to upgrade suspension, wheels, tyres, brakes, rollcage yes. As soon as the engine work is all together and setupWhoever changes the serpentine belt next, will definitely have fun.
Looks awesome though, going to do anything about the suspension, wheels and overall maneuverability/driving response?
Good thing it's a chain engine ain't it? you're going to get some lightweight wheels and black diamond brakes or so?Water pump belt is a nightmare with the engine in the car but altenator isnt too bad, i do have plans to upgrade suspension, wheels, tyres, brakes, rollcage yes.
