    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    No need to appologise all suggestions are welcome. I may try and get some of the welding done by someone at college as i have provisionally sold them the flywheel and clutch off the 620 as they had one that needed them, so instead of money i may get the bits welded and maybe some flanges made...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    As far as i am aware the magnetic element in steel is iron threrefore the magnet would stick to cast iron as well as cast steel so although you do have a point i think your testing method is a little off cheers for the idea though. i don't quite understand the sandwich idea though which side of...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    i dont really have and scrap turbos, well not the same as the one i'm using, i could easily borrow a scrap impreza sti one. if i went for option 1 i think i would get the welder that has a caravan on our park to weld it and have it looking fairly presentable. and hopfully still free :?: . If...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    With a quick search on google i have two ideas for the down pipe Idea 1. = cheap, cheerful and easy. and idea 2. a bit trickier and more time consuming and more expensive but could be made to look the part. as much as i would like to do the second one i think the flange maybe a bit beyond me...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    i have thought about getting a flange machined for the back of the turbo but its not that simple because of the complex shape inside the original part due to the indent for the waste gate and down pipe but i would like to have a nice fast flowing one that looks pretty but i would have to get it...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    it will be just behined the alt but slightly higher to make it posible to run a boost type pipe over the top of the alt for the air filter and the boost pipe to the intercooler will go under the alt. i cant see it being any simpler making a manifold than making a U-bend and a couple of flanges...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    I made a couple of bits of tube today to match the exhaust manifold to turbo ports. and then i will need to get a u-bend and flanges made to weld these bits to, to relocate the turbo. (the shaded bits are the tubes above.) The u-bend will be heat wrapped aswell as the down pipe. Which brings...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    bought and mounted the intercooler it was pretty simple using a couple of lengths of threaded rod and a length of bar. The threaded rod is going from the pannel beneth the slam pannel to the bosses on top of the intercooler, and the bar is attached to the captive nut on the x-member where the...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    Yes i've done it now I took it completly off using a blow torch and a fibre hammer and then after 2 and a half hours of fighting with a massive circlip and got the intake side off so i could spin that to a more convenient position i have rebuilt it all now with a couple of clearance issues...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    well we are brewing two sleepers here now so it should be a good laugh when traveling in convoy to shows. anybody got any ideas on how i can spin the intake side and the centre part of my turbo round 180 degrees i just cant seem to budge it.

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    i just cant work out if i should make it a bit of a sleeper or let people know its quick before they see it move. [edit] right im going to paint it black with the black hoses so its not noticeable from the outside then switch to colouered hoses under the bonnet but still undecided as to what...

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    I got the engine mounts attached to the engine today after welding them up last night. they are bolted to the engine but the other part is not attached to the chassis yet untill im 100% sure where the engine will sit with the gearbox in place. also been looking at a front mount intercooler or...

    yeh i think youv'e got it right about the tape, rally cars dont have them but i guess when they crash the its not on the racing line and the tyres will be less likely to be punctured by said glass.

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    yeh that would be no good the pass one probably isn't in an ideal as the angle is quite steep with the seat in its current position but with the seat further forward it should be ok.

    they are mounted on eyelets bolted into the rear seatbelt mounts as it didnt have seatbelts in the back it should be ok for mot. and i modified the old front seatbelts to work in the back too.

    1969 (soon to be) 2000ti TURBO INJECTION!

    I've got the seats in now but kept them on rails so i can still move them and i think the suit the car quite well and then to hide the unsightly seat rails ive taken the stainless steel door steps off the spairs car cut and rebent them to fit over the rails. [edit] got the harnesses today...

    3500s Project 4.6 rpi

    from tca to tca the rad 2000 shell is 45cm and the brown 3500s is 53cm i think so thats why the block and tca mounts need grinding back a bit.

    the number plate swapping was not only used in the pre internet days but a lot of the rally boys still do it i belive, as cars are crashed, rebuilt, resprayed, reclaimed and so on, so often whos to say if the car that one guy stuffed last season is the same one hes racing this season. its also...
