Re: The Chase For 8's

Fuel pump bracket showed up today, this thing looks so nice I almost dont want to put it on, I got my Magnus V5 with dual rails ordered so that should be here within a few weeks.

Re: The Chase For 8's

Very nice! Still going to run E85 or 98? Get this thing done for this season! Did you line somebody up for your manifold fabrication?

What's nice about the 6-inch intercooler is that air restriction is very low. Even if you ran methanol I would stay with the intercooler. The car is going to be very fast!

Yeah its still a 2.5 inlet/outlet though too, I didn't even think about it when I ordered it but it may not be that much of a restriction anyways.

Me too haha, its taking a little bit of time but once the manifold gets done i'll be able to start knocking it out because all the big money things should be done then. **knock on wood**

Don't leave it at 2.5, I can help modify it . I recommend a 3.5"upper and 3" lower. I like the vanjen hd clamps too! Would you get a 90mm tb for the v5 manifold? Ktuned is a good cost effective tb ( I don't recommend many others).

Re: The Chase For 8's

The fuel pump bracket sure looks like a nice piece. What did you end up doing for the exhaust manifold, front facing?

Yeah I'll probably go that route!

Well, i'm an idiot. It's already 3" in and out, I'm probably still going to do vanjen's instead of normal couplers. And probably still change the outlet to a 3.5

Re: The Chase For 8's

Made some baby steps, my dual rail v5 Manifold showed up a week or so ago, and I was finally able to source a Ktuned 90mm throttle body (everywhere I tried to get one was backordered) These are the final piece's I needed before I can get my turbo kit started. That's still probably 3 weeks or so out from being dropped off but the progress is starting to show now.



Also got my fuel pump bracket installed, I still need to order the pump/fittings though

Re: The Chase For 8's

Well, a small update, finally got the hood on and got it pushed out into the driveway for a couple pictures before it was dropped off to have the turbo kit made.

I have the parts for the fuel system ordered (minus another set of injectors yet)

Still need to get the rear end installed which shouldn't be too hard, Get a wiring harness so I can start working on that. Order an AEM Dash, and decide on what suspension I want to run and order it.

The goal is to have it running by May if the turbo kit doesnt take too long.

I'd also like to get the front either painted or wrapped to match the bumper the raw aluminum looks like shit IMO. Here's how it sat before we dropped it off (in desperate need of a wash)

I wouldn't worry about the 2.3 holding you back. I ran my first eight second passes on a 2.3 stroker. If anything it'll help you get used to a lot larger Turbo, due to the extra displacement.
