My gearbox is in " can't believe how heavy a turbo400 is .. I've had to reinforce the floor so I could lay the crossmember back to far

I'm not 100 percent happy with that yet ,I may make another tube crossmember that extends to the chassis rails ..

 

I had a 3inch heavy wall tail shaft made , and I'm leaving the 3.7 borgwarner diff in it for a bit .. because we only have 8th mile in Ballarat I thought I would see how it goes ..

 

Any way , the cars off for exhaust and intercooler pipes next week so I have ran out of time to get any more done .

That exhaust is very neat! It’s almost too neat to hide under the car.
That dump pipe looks really close to the pitman arm, it must be a tight fit on full lock!

Custom length job is what I'm using , quality is better than non gen any thing , cost me $100

It's going to run right around the engine bay to the plenum

Also kinda boring update .. I've redone most of the wiring . Just needs a few loose ends tidied up ..

But basically pulled the old loom back through the bay , pulled it apart ,ran the ones I needed over the floor .. and run a new power cable to power up the dash and accessories..

I'm putting a microtech dash in it so I made a panel to hold that also .. 3fdac9e7658187ce38f215ac8d60bf0c.jpg908373ddb97412ca90ea76dc92cc81e5.jpg32f5c2a833c68d61f0567148a85cc03a.jpg3fbee6ffede2c27c796d236224bbdd7f.jpg

After busting my arse for the last few weeks the car fired up today .. I still need a few little things before I can drive it , but it ran and moved under its own power .

 

It's only running a 7psi spring and one gas converter , that will keep me happy until i finish building my good engine ..

 

I could have also gone all out and painted the engine bay , but seeing the paint on the outside isn't fantastic I decided to leave it and run with a ratty theme , instead of things getting out of hand .
