Nope, that won't happen...

It's an IRS pan and set up, not a swing axle. :wink:
He's still gotta figure out an engine hanger set up.

It is sorted, but not yet executed.

I should have looked closer, those slicks got me excited!

I am excited with what is going under the engine cover. The new heads for the engine should bump me up a bit.

I settled on front tires. They should be here next week.

The heads look good. Should flow very well. 8)

vwfye Sat Sep 05, 2020 10:45 am

75% of expectation would still be very good... 😎

It was recommended by the head porter, that I switch valves, retainers, keepers and lash caps to what the heads would have originally had. Not a cheap thing to do, but it seems like cheap insurance after investing in these heads!

The only time I think this is remotely ok. Car needs a diet... this is just one part of it all. Bolt in, of course...

So you're building this car into a track car then.

Yes. The pink car is going back to street only after this weekend.

So, will you be undoing all of the body mods to the pink car? Or will they stay? I thought you were going to "water cool" it.

vwfye Tue Sep 15, 2020 8:59 am

They stay. The vr6 is still waiting to move in. The engine from the pink car will move to this one.

Ok, so that should save you some time. Does that case have the provisions for a hanger bar?

vwfye Tue Sep 15, 2020 9:36 am

Nope. But not needed ;) I have a plan.

vwfye Tue Sep 15, 2020 1:35 pm

Used 1 3/4 exhaust is on its way!

The rear subframe will be a swing/IRS conversion. Frame horns and IRS pivots, so no rear engine hanger and solidnmoits of the subframe.

Jason37 Wed Sep 16, 2020 3:35 pm

Nice work on the heads! carbs or fuel injection?

vwfye Wed Sep 16, 2020 3:38 pm

48 IDF with a 42 venturi

With the head porting and those carbs, your watch could end up in the bottom end. Nice work.

vwfye Sat Sep 19, 2020 10:42 am

At the LFTS getting front tires/wheels mated. Shpuld have them on the pan this afternoon. Small progress, but progress.
