Nice work, will be a mint drag car.

Pretty cool that you have a "spare" typhoon motor, most people don't even have 1 of them, lol.

This should be interesting. something different to hopefully surprise all the v8 boys. As usual Tocchi, you are thinking outside the box. :idea: Well Done.

yeah that turbo is massive! I'd love to see an SR20 turbo or some such alongside for comparison.

The one on the end if I'm not mistaken is the same turbo that's on the XR6T

When you get it running, whack some street tyres under the back, take it out the front of your house, and launch it off the transbrake.

WOW.. epic lack of update


NITTO plenum

Image

Image


bought some toys

new seat... lightweight as f*ck.. ill keep Simpson Hornet plastic seat as a spare
Image

to piss everybody off
Image

Oh new turbo too
Image

Image

now with 80Lb siemens injectors

oh and engine plates
Image



i decided to test fit the custom bellhousing today (made by Dellows)... luckily i had no bellhousing issues, which is nice, i was a bit concerned prior due to Jeff (XH50WA) have lots of issues with his for his TKO600 gearbox and Dellow bellhousing.

Image

Image

Image



here's the bellhousing versus engine plate (to suit clevo) ... the hardest part will be to make sure the 6T bellhousing is in the centre of the (new) engine plate, will work something out :)
Image




here's the cooling system, as per usual it runs around the rear to go to the heater box etc
i will be removing all the pipes/piping (except for the turbo water feed and return lines)... but i will have to work that out in a bit more detail when i purchase an electric water pump
