  1. Nice result! Is that running on 98? Sent from my SM-G610Y using Tapatalk
  2. I'm not sure what size tube the lines are so here's a chart Sent from my SM-G610Y using Tapatalk
  3. You could get a swagelok or similar joiner so you can cut and rotate the tube. Sent from my SM-G610Y using Tapatalk
  4. I can vouch for changing to thermos making a difference. On my old ED Fairmont Ghia 5.0 I pissed off the old viscous clutch fan as the clutch was locked up at all temperatures. The little e7 headed stock wheezer needed all the help it could get to move that sail barge, it certainly did make a difference. Another added benefit as my brother mentioned is that it almost sounded like a V8 instead of an Electrolux. Sent from my SM-G610Y using Tapatalk
  5. I can't imagine 007 impressing a Russian spy chick in an XD Sent from my SM-G610Y using Tapatalk
  6. All manufacturers quote at the flywheel. Sent from my SM-G610Y using Tapatalk
  7. Here's a CAD Alloy XFlow header flange for anyone who wants to make their own manifold. I've got it at 12mm thick for turbo manifolds. I've also got a dxf file to send directly to laser cutters to save coin having it formatted. PM me and I can email it. Sent from my SM-G610Y using Tapatalk
  8. Change cam, add turbo and manifold, blow through carb, winning 😎
  9. You won't notice it as much when you've got the wipers, new windscreen and leaf guard thingy in. Your eye is drawn to it because it's all bare and the windscreen is white. I think it will look fine.
  10. You could drop in a 1J/2J 😎
  11. My mate also had one just with a 3" exhaust and a boost controller, went hard for what it was. Like you say though the torque steer was horrendous. The MX6 Turbo had a really nice interior. The overall quality of Jap cars compared to local cars back then was amazing. The interior plastics and materials just feel better in general and are far more durable. My old MK3 Supra's interior was still in good nick (after a good clean) even though it belonged to people who didn't look after it. It might end up being cheaper doing an engine transplant from a later model Honda than rebuilding the B20A by the time you pay for machining etc. There's quite a few options to choose from
  12. Throughout the build? Cars have been bought new, gotten old and been crushed twice over in that timeframe lol. The wheels will be back in fashion by that time.
  13. Only if you're going with no intercooler (far from ideal) or a water to air over the top of the engine. The old pre bbm log makes it easier to plumb intercooler pipework and makes for a far shorter inlet tract to run an air to air front mount, which is the cheapest option.
  14. On the exhaust side (obviously),at the top of the sump so it's well above the oil level. So I'd say in the middle of the bowl in the top 1/4. As for size I'd go 3/4 (-12AN) as yours is a bush bearing turbo I think and they use more oil flow than a ball bearing. The less restriction the better, as far as the drain line itself goes make it as vertical as possible.
  15. Yeah atomic do head stud kits for the sohc 4L. At almost $500 for studs though, you're almost reaching a point where you just get an FG Barra or stretch to a Turbo Barra.
