      may i ask why you have a inline filter on the tcv? looks like the line its on goes to the wastegate. i could be wrong though. i know people put filters on lines to the the boost gauge.

      It comes off the compressor. To keep any oil vapors from fouling up the tcv

      The tcv is new and I've had it on since day 1. But the filter housing is clear and I can already see build up in it. Good investment imho

      This is what I'm talking about. So many sensors. Open your hood once in a while instead. Hence why they call them idiot lights.
      Now doesn't that look so much better?

      Everyone knows the best way to start a car is with a JATO to give the initial velocity required to start the car. And its not in the engine bay so it counts!

      Well, sure, but I think a simple bevel gear would be mechanically simpler than running a long shaft across the front and through the fender. There's probably a pretty 'easy' path by removing the passenger side headlight washer motor, then a bevel to the starter. Or, a flexible shaft would eliminate the bevel.

      I'm not going to criticize, but I will say that if you can get this to run well without throwing ten million codes, I'll be extremely impressed. Might as well go for a standalone ECU if you're really intent on cutting the clutter, cost no object.

      Haven't decided on the ecu placement yet. Prob in something seal tight and in the fender.
      Gonna pull up that whole side harness for sure tho and route along the chassis and bring up the wires I need by the efan.

      Most of that harness was for the alarm system and washer fluid reservoir. GONE!

      Probably you have already done it, but while you are doing all of the work on the wire tuck make sure to take the time to clean up all the grounds in the engine bay.

      There are a bunch between the 3 that are in each fender, block, frame rail, 5 on the valve cover for each coil pack ect. A couple of wire brushes and some purple Permatex goo for battery terminals goes a long way towards cleaning then up and on a car this complex it's a no brainier to keep all the grounds in good shape to stop stupid electrical gremlins before they start.

      Oh for sure. I'm double checking all wiring. Everything will be wrapped in high heat tubing

      Looks great, don't see why people see a problem with this. Any plans for the fuse box?

      This would almost be amusing it not for the fact that I've seen enough of these kinds of adventures to know its likely to end sadly.

      As someone suggested earlier, getting your engine cleaned up and running right should be your main and first priority. Tearing apart and frankensteining your engine compartment just appears to be a diversion from doing what you should really be doing if you want a fast and nice R.

      So many people here appear to be obsessed with form over function, but to each our own since our cars are an expression of our desires.

      You should get rid of the headlights while you are at it and just put some air scoops in their place. Cars got by for a long time before the electric light came along, lol.

      At the very least weigh this stuff so you can claim some benefit was derived from deletion.

      My bet is you will suffer fatigue before this is completed. That said - power to you if that is not the case. Each to their own and all.

      Fatigue? Haha you must not know all the work I've already put into this car. This ain't sh*t.

      And the benefit is it's going to look gorgeous. I don't understand why I Have to keep explaining this.

      I have no idea what you have done. You remind me of myself a long time ago. But seriously. Why not weigh the stuff?

      Respect from me as long as you are learning something new - it doesn't matter what you are doing to it.

      Its not like these cars are so rare that you are destroying something irreplaceable......

      There are cars you really shouldnt touch however. Smiles.

      Shaving the Engine Bay

      im almost positive this is the fastest R on the forum. also one of the cleanest. he knows what he's doing and i can tell by his pictures and work that he isnt gonna stop just bc of you guys telling him its irreplaceable or you "need" it to drive. you dont "need" anything. it just gives you an advantage of making life easier if you do. i follow you on instagram and ur pics and vids give me ragers. keep this up!


      also. ya old farts sound like a broken record! love u guys but he obviously isnt gonna stop

      ok i need some help. if you notice how the stock coolant reservoir mounts to the strut there, it is clipped on in two places. i want to get two small fluid reservoirs that will mount in a similar way so that i can use one clip for coolant one clip for the power steering.

      im looking on jegs and summit, but there are sooo many. if anyone knows of something that would work please post the link. thanks.
