Are you cutting that lip or just bolt on flares? I'm just looking at how much travel you have based on my aging eyes and that pic
I’m going to bolt the flares to the car, but also cutting the fender. I don’t need to cut the whole fender wheel well, just enough to allow me to lower the car more and turn my oversized wheels without rubbing, and lastly the flare bolts on and covers the missing metal fender area. Will need to cut some of the front bumper too. I won’t cut the chin spoiler.

Really digging the placement of both air filters.

Sharp and ingenuitive.

Your build is developing into THE BUILD for the late GEN SHO platform.

Impressive is understating it.

That’s quite a statement. I view your build with the same sentiment and it’s always inspiring.

I forgot that thing was on bags. The pic with tiny gap I thought was fixed with coil/strut. Makes more sense now.

Andrew,

I haven't seen this thread in a while and WOW, what you have done is amazing! Ingenious placement for the new turbos. Can you go with a bigger turbo if needed?

Can't wait to see how the wheel flares turn out.

Good Luck!

Frank

Well, it's QUITE the build you're compiling.

It's nice to be the foundation of one's inspiration(s). Me for you (as you stated). Then in turn, you for so many others (myself included).

Would be cool for those occasions when we are able to meet up at a show event here or there across the country (when our respective builds have each been completed) to display together.

We can make the theme of our display as your car being Darth Vader, and mine, the Storm Trooper.

I can envision it.

Continued successes Andrew and an early wish for a Happy Thanksgiving.

Intercooler is mounted. Ben and I took a step back and redid the fingers to get the turbos into the acceptable range of 0-15 degrees from vertical. Originally we had them at 33 degrees and the oil inlet/outlet sideways. So I took the gloves off……and I went through every possible orientation I could and found I was able to spin the compressor housing 360 degrees from the core as well as the hot side from the core. I even swapped compressor covers, then learned that would definitely not work lol! So the turbos are now at 12.5 degrees within range and oil inlet/outlet completely vertical like it should be! C7351680 0A34 4EE3 8EAE 886D6F8BBCFE

Holding the IC to the custom crash bar are 3 collars that Ben found and recommended I buy. He knows all the cool stuff to get. 20A8ED2D B294 4464 8AC3 43A4A6903620

So we angled the IC for space and also airflow. The collars made that easy peasy and Ben grabbed some thick aluminum bar and welded the bar to the IC and the collar. So it can be adjusted or removed with ease and it’s stupid solid. 9922400E 1F86 4134 8CC2 F32A337E8EB479BF4EBD DBE3 4E5C 80B6 BB97917CD15B13DC7FC3 8123 40C8 A56C 99DDEEDA4C1F166465EB 0A0B 4ED3 9B1B C3EDAA93ADE757F299C6 48D6 4F94 8618 3658151A61E70C1BD475 1B48 44B0 A07C 0EC3831DBEFCB2D998B6 7259 4E5E 8170 6E48F65285AB

The inlet pipes will only be 10” long and 4” of that is all silicone couplers. I didn’t want to weld to the turbo in case I want to upgrade and sell them. So we’re using silicone couplers on the IC and turbos. My second Kirkey seat arrived and now she’s got twinzies! 2 seater race car 42F3F56B 8768 44B1 93D3 01CF1F13F28ACE405106 8ED5 4351 84B0 420439F917B6

Ben also welded the bellows onto the manifolds. We’re anticipating some flex needing to happen and these bellows are a nice addition to the build for functionality. And his rainbow welds look awesome imho. C34FC743 353E 41AA B5E9 78313D8B7D38FE85F934 A272 400D 92AB 138E8C2249B9

Looks great Andrew. How did you route the oil return lines coming from the turbos? Do they connect to one via a coupling then enter the engine? Or are they run separately?

Haven’t gotten that far yet. Was thinking to reuse all OEM oil and coolant line ports on the engine with scavenger pumps creating a vacuum and sending oil back.

Ok so I’m ditching the internal wastegate turbine housings bc the wastegates sit against the bumper. The wastgate brackets limit the adjustments of the turbo and I’ve literally tried every possible combination. At best they are against it, at worst I’d have to cut an opening…just to let the wastage come out? Not doing that.

I purchased both turbine housings without the internal wastegates and the housings are actually not as wide, which will bring the exhaust father away from the tires, also no bracket in the way of the bumper. 5EF143B6 76A8 4A50 904B 977DF6FE5A78. I bought twin TIAL 44 mm external wastagates in purple. 1E555CD9 180A 405E B563 9689515812EE. These can just 90 off the turbine inlet and we’ll merge its exit back into the turbine outlet that’s already headed out. Why make separate runs of wastgate piping?

The XL _Clinched_ flares arrived and I was happy to find that having a larger radius wasn’t the only thing different, the mold for the bolts have less of a profile on the back and they sit flat on a slight curve. That’s big and I can’t wait to get these things on. The other ones had the smaller radius but the mold for the bolts was very proud, not allowing hardly any curve, it’s like it would need to go against something completely vertical to look right with no gaps.

Tonight while we wait for the turbine housings we’re going to start the IC piping.
