Corey and company are installing some heat shieding for that extra degree of protection to components around the Turbo's, and then it's time to stab the front clip, new motor and all back into the car. Actually, they will lower the car to the front clip, but you know what I mean...

Woo Hoo....

Yup,

Corey just sent me a note that he was making some minor alterations to the tubing on the kit... Rather than a 2.5 inch down tube, it will be three inches through out...This is only a short piece of tubing... bout this long
I<--------------------------------------------------------------------->I or therabouts...

He is a stickler for details...

I may not sleep tonight waiting for pics...

This picture shows the clutch bleeder line behind the electrical wire. The thick black stuff is heat shielding... Ordinarily this is a capped line that to bleed the clutch mandates jacking the car up, getting under it and hooking into this line. Corey and Co run this line to a spot under the hood. bleeding the clutch takes just a few minutes now, and no need to get dirty or under the car or anything... He is also taking the time to heat wrap cableing and other items in the area of the turbo's. Details....

Being stuck in Brazil, and not able to really ask questions, I'm not sure where these two lines t'ed come from or go to... Maybe Corey will chime in or J.R.

Note the thickness of the heat wrap... I'll have to get someone else to speak up about the braided line coming up on the left, though I think that is the clutch bleeder line...

Note the plastic wire loom in the first photo... and then the same loom in the second pic... You might also notice in the first pic, the really nice looking attachment to the exhaust manifold...
Yeehhhhhhhhh!!! Baby Got Boost...

When I slam my foot to the floor, that powa'h has to get ought de motor to da transmixer... I tink dis ting up to da challenge....Act Twin disc,

Also note, there is a substantial rotating weight reduction with the design of the flywheel. not only does it reduce weight, but it also brings the rotating mass closer to the centerline... allowing for a faster spin up of the motor when it's hammer time....

Looking good so far man. You're building it right and giving me ideas for if/when things break on mine.

I figured it was better to heat shield everything while I had the motor on the floor and I could reach it! That way I don't need to do any emergency wiring of O2 sensor or primary engine harness on the side of the road a month from now!

Like the cold pipes that run under the manifolds, and the A/C lines. Knowing Robert, short blast down the highway will probably be the least of my worries. The 5 minute burnouts tend to make some heat under the hood......Robert!
