hi


LOL :wink: ur ok , yes the whole mount setup will be solid mounted ( ie motor and gearbox only ) im only interested in drag racing the car and its going to be a R&D car and the :wink: accassional drive on the streets :wink:

the turbos are suspended there so i can make a connections to the manifolds :wink: have u ever tryed to hold a turbo bent over in a engine bay it hurts :wink: there just some brackets i cut and slotted so i can make the best possible judgement where to fit the turbos , the brackets on the shocker tower will be removed once the manifolds are fabricated, there my 3rd and 4th set of hands that i dont have :wink: theses brackets are great cause if i position the turbos in any spot in the engine bay they stay there do not move until i move them rather than just using chains rope or any other method i just did it this way.

I will also fabricate some small brackets to support the turbos back to the cylinder head or block cuase im sure theres going to be a WHOLE LOTTA SHAKING GOING ON :wink:
the turbos are not the larges but there not small either so its a bit tight in the engine bay as there are other things been fitted there , it looks naked now but hate to see when all the plumbing and hoses are fitted up wot its going to look like.

cheers

Agreed.
My arms aren't fat, but years of inactivity have left them inflexible.
Plus my fingers are fat...
BBM makes it a bit easier.

good ideal a bit of a angle

but in my case i have removed the radiator fill bottle and battery all together on the drivers side i plan to run a huge cold air intake air box system in that corner and angle of turbo is not critical in my case as im not interested in street everyday driving.

radiator fill bolted im planning on getting rid of all together and use a early type falcon radiator and will make a few things so i can extract the air trapped inside the cylinder head water passages

battery will be relocated into the boot compartment and so on
will post a few pics once its all done

cheers
