Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Coolant reservoir arrived with the braided lines.
I guessed bought 8an line. It would work if I really tighteneed down the ends but. I'm going to order 6an linr as I believe it will be a better fit.

Sad part is this is almost.chrome looking. And actually its almost to shiny for my engine bay lol. I took picts of it sitting on my mishimoto x-line radiator just to show the difference.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

It definetly does. I really want to road race this car (hoping for a time in aug when my brother comes to race vir for a month solid like he's done last 2yrs in a row.

But can't race if you leaks.

Side note on my break today at work I fabbed up amount for my new mishimoto coolant reservoir.
I just need to cut the hose down to length when I leave and tomorrow I'll paint the bracket for final assembly. Here's what it looks like so far.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Thanks, I still have a ways to go. But I've been trying to do alot of "new"oem replacement stuff as i go along with all the aftermarket stuff.

If you go back and I think it's post #3. I update thay everytime I put something new on the car and the dates I put it on or arrived. (As some parts I'm hording due to a sale or what not I came across)

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

I had been talking with my brother about what type of steering wheel and racing Seats he's found he likes.

And he immediate said http://drivensteering.net

Said he knows the owner quality is top notch. So after talking with him today he convinced me to pull the trigger on there line (didn't really take much, it's half the price of sparco products, the company theme is red/black which is perfect for the car)
I plan to buy there racing Seats come tax time. But for now here's what I have coming.

Driven 12.9"flat steering wheel
Driven quick release
Sparco hub (they didn't have there own. So ordered it from extremepsi as I had to place an order for other stuff as well to complete my 4an vacuum setup, and I want to switch my aem oil pressure gauge to read the turbo fees oil pressure.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Installed all the 4an vacuum lines today. But extremepsi.com sent the wrong 90 adapter for the turbo.
But are overnighting the piece.

I'll take better pictures once the piece arrives so I can pull it out of the garage.

Also wife messaged me at work and said my ORTIX center vent pod arrived today. So that'LL probably be my weekend project. Hoping to put my boost and A/F gauge in the center.

If 1 gauge won't reach I'm contemplated using the passengerside pod for a safety cut off switch location for road racing

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well installed the aem oil temp gauge today. No matter where I put it the harness was at least 3 inches to short.

So I had to extend the sensor wires.

When it was all said and done the Guage only reads "- - - "

I didn't check it prior to extending the wires so I have no idea if the sensor is bad or if I ruined the harness, or what. But it powers on just fine.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Valve cover and intake pipe needed to be redone. I was going to just polish them. But the wife asked what it would look like painted the same as the car.

I had the paint so went ahead and painted and polished the lettering just to see. Still thinking polish will be the way I go. But for now.

Also did the tire pressure gauge clip, oil dipstick mod. Pretty slick little mod works great.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well little update.
-new oem clutch slave cylinder
-DEI cool tape wraoped my FP intake.
-DEI cool tape wrapped my lower I/C pipe
-DEI cool pad wrapped the bottom of my oil pan where the down pipe goes.
-DEI header wrapped my down pipe.
-removed all the paint from my valve cover and intake (was shocked to find 5 different layers/colors of paint on the valvery cover, the bottom one being a royal pain in the ass to get off but persistence paid off) I didn't get as much time because of that, to do the quality polish I would normally have OCD labored over it.

I also got in a lower pressure spring for my oil filter housing. Just ran out of time to install it. My son had cub scouts this weekend.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Just for fun. Pictures of the 3 different phases of the engine bay.
1)black - original
2)red - wife wanted to see . And looked good but the valve cover amd intake were much brighter then the engine bay red and didn't look good as a whole.
3)polished - final
