Just starting the thread now. There will be quite a few posts in the coming weeks.

Here's some part's that I just bought.

Fuel system
- 660cc injectors to replace the old 440cc
- Walbro 255lph fuel pump to replace the stock fuel pump

Heat control
- Thermo-tec Exhaust Jackets to go over the runners of the turbo manifold


- Thermo-tec Turbo Insulating Kit to go over the turbine side and DP


- Thermo-tec heat and sound control mat. I will be stripping the firewall of all that FG crap, and be putting up this stuff.

Great things about all the heat control stuff

(1) makes for a cooler engine bay, which is good for other components
(2) keeps heat energy inside the turbo/manifold/DP for better spool up and less heat transferred to the intake air

Well... I finally bought a digicam yesterday!

So, now I should be able to provide many good pics in this thread.

Nothing exciting to show yet.

Hopefully the sequential injection will help keep those 660's under control at idle.

Lots of nice parts. where are you getting the shim under bucket parts? From TED?

However, my down pipe currently is 2.5" on the first elbow, then 3" starting at the flex coupler. How long will your 2.5" down pipe be?

Agree on the fiberglass firewall crap. I just might tear mine out as well.

Yeah shim under bucket stuff is from TED.

The DP is 2.5" and ends just about the rear face of the oil pan. The rest of the exhaust is also 2.5".

I got the motor dropped yesterday, and tore most of the fiberglass crap out.

That stuff sucks... I wore a respirator and safety glasses along with my normal gloves and coveralls.

Marco, how thick is that firewall mat? I'm thinking about wrapping my intercooler in that, but not sure about the clearance between the valve cover. Does it have adheasive on the back side?

I don't know how thick it is... but yes, it does have a high-temp adheasive backing.

the turbo insulation is great, my entire exhaust is wrapped. header, collector, turbine, and full exhaust. i can't hold my hand up to the exhaust its so hot when it comes out. it definetly helps keep alot of energy in the exhuast.

So tomorrow I'll have a chance to work on the car. I am going to.....

- Finish stripping and cleaning the engine bay firewall.
- Clean engine/tranny.
- Seperate engine + tranny, put engine on stand.
- Take apart engine.
- Thouroughly clean all parts... especially things that are caked with the fire extinguisher stuff.
- Send Head to TED

I'll try and get some pictures.

Thursday I'll drop the tank and get that fuel pump changed out :)

I'll definately get pics of that... I know the pain and suffering of others is always fun to see in illustrations ;)

OMG definately drain that tank. We dropped the tank thinking it was empty, what a mistake!!

Once we got it out we were two people trying to fill any container we could get our hands on so we could transfer it to other cars. :)

Lucky for me... the "Almost Empty" light was on last time I drove it.

There's no more than 2 gal in that tank.

progress

Ok... I went a bit out of order.

I got a late start, so I wouldn't be able to get the head over to fedEx anyway, so I decided to strip the firewall and drop the tank instead.

I also figured out where/how the remote oil filter and oil cooler will be mounted.

Pics....

Time to get to work...



Ok, disconnect the big rail of tubes/hoses and disconnect the filler from the tank. Notice the bare firewall.



Notice all the charred up crap and the melted shifter cables while checking out my disconnected fuel stuff mentioned above.



Then you get to your interior. (Notice MKIV Supra seats, for those who haven't seen)



Continued.....

Take off the center console stuff...



Disconnect the wires to the pump, and level sender...



Get under the car and take off the e-brake cable brackets and the tank holders.

Now the tank is out...



Notice I left that tube connected, just disconnected it from the firewall.



Continued....
