Good progress mang! so where exactly do you plan to morph the cables into one? at the bell crank? Which you plan to mount to that bracket that bolts to the valve cover in this picture?

I'm not using the support bracket, I'm using the holes in the valve cover where that bracket mounts to mount up my throttle linkage mechanism. I was chatting with my brother about it yesterday and we started talking about the stock throttle body and how there's a progressive linkage. Then we thought about just pulling the linkage off of the stock throttle body and modifying it. I think that's the route I will be going as it should make things fairly simple.

So I brought the car out of storage yesterday. I took it for a rip around the block just to get a little taste before it would be going on blocks for the next few weeks. First order of business was obviously to drain the coolant and pull the intake manifold so that I could test fit my ITBs...





Over all I was relieved to see that everything fit into the car more or less how I predicted it would. The set-up clears the brake booster and will clear the strut brace when it's in place. The only real interference is with the upper heater core hose which I already figured would be an issue.




However after looking at it, it shouldn't be too hard to reroute. If I can find a hose with a tight 90 degree bend I can run the upper line down behind the booster, either that or I'll trim the rib on the tip off of the inlet and solder on a 90 degree copper fitting that I can attach a hose to. Now I just need to figure out the throttle cable set-up as well as what I'm going to do for air filters. The angled velocity stacks are still on the table too.

Happy Easter

Looks phenomenal! I like how you can see the manufacturer of the TB on the top.

I say you do away with the heater core....

I had a Ford Escort for years that had no heat. I used a 12v heater that plugged into the cigarette lighter outlet. Not overly pleasant but it did the job.

I'd get rid the heater core because racecar.

Thats perfect!

I don't have a cigarette lighter though. I could just wire an old baseboard heater in the footwell.
