so to be done by July 21 might be ambitious... but the real deadline is July 1... Cause I expect 2 weeks to tune it for the drive to ottawa might already be short. Heres my to do list:

Weld oil pan
install motor
relocate oil filter
finish welding front end and install
make headlight mounting brackets
finish welding rad and oil coolers
make intake system minus manifold
install megasquirt
tune megasquirt...

did I mention..

change brakes and diff? but the diff really isnt necessary...


oh shit...

While you have it out, fab up a DSSR for the shifter. It makes the shifter feel soo much better.

Then installed the injectors!





Finished the Exhaust... up to the O2 sensor

More Exhaust Stuff






The day before I left for Indonesia, I went into my garage to clean up a bit.. to my fun surprise I found this:





WTF you might ask... nothing is missing however.. and the Window is all muddy and not smashed..

Found out after if found the fat sucker trapped in a corner that a racoon had snuck in when the door was open.. and must of done this in his attempt to get out.. honestly I have no idea how, its not like its easy to tip that tool box over... Lucky the Argon bottle didn't have its cap snapped off, or welder destroyed.. just some bent slightly more difficult drawers to close :s luckyyyyyyyyy

Some cool things in Indonesia.. while I wasn't working...
















Traffic in Indonesia is like the Top Gear Vietnam special, but instead of that many motorcycles having open road they have to snake through this many cars.. average speed 35-40 km/h.. when the light goes green the noise from all of the 2 strokes resembles the start of a race... Everyone! is full throttle

Sooo .. since back:

Made template to make intercooler bracket



Made Bracket and welded on




Then scrapped my oil cooler idea. it was too much work and getting too complicated for what it should be. So back to the B&M option.. just had to do some extra hacking to make it work




One Free oil cooler and a bit of repair work later, and BAM!!
Mounted it to the rad and done.. now how do I fit fans :s (this is actually difficult because I want to fit nice ducting out my hood, so I get the most airflow through my heat exchangers. Using a large fan gets in the way of the duct, or blows right against it, restricting the fan.)





Like this! I ended up getting 2 x 10" fans from Summit, and with how thin they are I should be able to get the duct to just snake past with proper airflow. I wont be able to make what I was dreaming of... but still should work. had to attach them together first, so I made this little piece of Aluminum to fit in the mounting slots (next tool I'm buying is a mill lol)





The rest of today was helping a friend make his exhaust for a RS6 engine to fit in his Audi 90 ..
