    My motor is a GE/Non - turbo head, so the water neck is on opposite side to GTE

    I'm not sure, it seems to serve no purpose other than look like shit and make changing the filter a pest,

    Ha ha, that's the plan, I'm not fucking doing it again, although at this stage it's already on it's 3rd plenum, 2nd gearbox, 2nd turbo and 2nd exhaust manifold... ffs

    At least the surge tank is ready, pumps fitted and wired up,





    Accelerator cable came back with the inner slightly shorter, outer was perfect, even fits!

    Fuck this is sad, Months on end before anything happens on this...

    Anyway, after a 3.5 month wait after ordering and paying for Powerglide internals, they finally turned up, ordered on the 6th of June, I actually went into the Summit store in Atlanta on September 9th to sort the problem with the delays, 1 part of the order wasn't in store so they kept delaying it an extra week, every week, turns out they had the same item in a different brand in stock, Guy at the counter couldn't even understand why they didn't ask about putting that in the order to finalize, then after all that and him telling me that it would be done and sent, they then delayed it for another 2 week because there was a $4.25 price difference they wanted me to pay before shipping.... I rang them and "politely" told them I think they should pick up the $4.25 tab, seems they agree'd and was then sent...



    Decided I had better do something on this shit tin, fuel tanks on these have that intake return hose that always seems to come off, only fix is to get a very clever 3yo to put it back on through the pump hole or cut a hole in the tank, I don't know a 3yo that clever,
    The tank was acid bathed a while ago, so mostly cleaned,




    Gave it another final clean and got some E85 rated submersible hose and fitted it in




    All for that little bastard..



    Scott (OKE020) welded the tank for me, he had a bit of an issue with it being junk to weld, think it may have been the acid, Anyway, it was shit to weld but he sorted it, doesn't leak, I thought about painting it but then figured it wasn't from factory, so I just gave it a quick clean and it can go back in as per factory, threw a little paint over the welds.




    The original fuel sender looked a bit past its used by date,




    Shifty sorted another one for me, even the same part number, OCD people are great! lol




    Cleaned it up and ready to put together..



    Fitted a Walbro 255lph pump (GSS342) to feed the surge tank.



    Cradle fitted, cant remember if I put any sealant on the pump wiring rubber plug though, will have to check for leaks later lol



    Painted the tank straps as they were starting to go a bit rusty and then replaced the overflow/breather lines,




    Fitted the tank! fucking finally!!!



    Still need to find a Charcol canister off something as the plan is to mount one near the tank filler in the gap here as the original one was removed as it would have fouled the exhaust manifold

    A Sonnax 1.80 billet gearset came up for sale at a great price with perfect timing so I jumped on it, exactly the same one as I was about to order from the USA but $700 cheaper plus postage!!

    Unfortunatly it didnt come with the straight cut sungear for the forward hub so I'll have to order one seperatly, will still save a good $6-700, like this but with straight cut gear to suit

    Still unsure why but we worked out a deal for half cash, half parts and labour,

    So I sent it off up there and went up and did a fair bit with him, we got a bit done so was worth it anyway to bring it closer to being a car,

    I fitted up the Plazmaman Plenum, fuel rail and injectors,

    Goleby does an injector loom to suit these so we fitted one of them and used the -6 speedflow fittings and line I had for the fuel rail lines,
    I did have to use a bit of his stuff for the return lines due to not having the fittings needed and he doesnt sell speedflow fittings

    Again we did a mix of Speedflow line and fittings for the rest of the fuel system and used his stuff where I didnt have the fittings.

    We mounted the surge tank in the boot, and ran the lines down under the back seat and through the floor, It's about the best way we found to clear past the exhaust route and not get fucked up by anything else, It's all teflon braid hose so no fucking about lol, We P clamped it under the car but I'd like to add a couple more yet

    Goleby made a mount for the surge and we ran the line to/from the tank over the other side and used bulk head fittings to go through to the tank,

    So the fuel system is at this point done, obviously not yet tested and in reality I'd like to make a bracket that covers the lines under the seat and blank the boot off from the cabin area, may somehow do that yet

    I upgraded the small PWR trans cooler for a larger new version thats 3 times as thick, he took the old one back as it was new anyway, did a change over price thing,
    we fitted that up under the floor of the car and made some mounts, has a decent Spal fan on there as well so should be good, ran some more braided teflon line and fitting to the dummy box so that's done as well now, It sits quite high in decent spot, hard to see in pics but crossmember etc is lower

    We also did a few small jobs like radiator hoses, mounted a 4 port mac valve, ran some vaccum hoses, still need to neaten up a little etc, added a turbo guard, I will make up a filter and intake pipe for street driving,
    Sorted the water and oil lines, ended up using the block off I made for a water port and welded a -6 fitting to it and then another into the bypass pipe.

    He also made a dump pipe, I as happy with 3.5" but he still went and made 4" surprised it even fit to be honest although I do need to skim the bellhousing in a small spot to stop it rubbing, but it is V-band so bonus to work with.
    Also somewhere along the lines I got a fancy Brake master cap and bracket, look the part I guess,

    I was assured if they had an air gap the Teflon lines would be ok and wouldn't melt but I'm not keen on the idea so I put some Speedflow heat sleeve on them anyway

    Also fucked about a bit this arvo and made holes for the trigger kit through the cam covers, I had planned on having the stock GE covers on to make it a bit cleaner, not sure how I feel about it but will paint them up at some point anyway.

    Good progress.

    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Yeah I was looking at going with TCE, Hoffman also suggested them, looking on their website I see a lot of quick street cars I know of on there.

    I put it all on, I'm pretty happy with it, Looks nicer without the plastic cam cover, so I'll lose that for as long as I can, or paint it black and carry it in the car for Police situations lol

    Hopefully I'll get some time this arvo with some help to fit the bumper it self on.


    So the new you beaut rare spares badge I bought a couple years ago that has seen a trailer trip 3 times and been washed about 4 times is holding up just great....
    Why the fuck they'd chrome plate it then have it painted is beyond me, so the silver paint is flaking off so I started to scratch the rest off to make the lion outline chrome instead, can see how much it's flaking here, I did scratch the bit off the head section, but all with just my finger nail.

    This thing looks mint. Nice work!

    That converter pricing is eye watering. Is it a billet unit?

    I paid $1750 cash for my barra tce convertor, $600 for billet barra flex plate from yella terra

    My fti convertor for vc a couple years ago was $1700.

    Wait till you fill it gearbox up, atf goes for $60-90 per 4 or 5 litre bottle. Big t400 with deep pan and long trans cooler line swallows up 11 litres

    I'm surprised barra stuff is so expensive.
    Was also quoted 1750 for a billet converter from tce and sde. 4l80 though.

    I guess it just isn't cheap to build a decent & reliable car. Shit, I reckon after my gearbox conversion there will be close to 15k in parts from the engine to the back of the car. That's not including fuel system either.

    Someone on here once said that it costs about 50k to build something decent. They were right.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    Absolutely no good can come from tracking costs...
