It’s really hot in my garage right now so I move a little bit slower… I was also waiting on a set of exhaust manifolds to try.
Made a test bracket from wood to mount the hydro boost. Should work out nicely once it is in metal.
I will make an adapter to mount the BMW master.
e12 vs e28 steering bits, e28 on the top. It is all in the car now…helps a TON! The engine would not fit with the e12 stuff, e28 and I have lots of room now.
The only clearance issue is when you turn allll the way left the bolt on the pitman arm off the steering box touches the trans/oil pan. I might be able to push the engine back just a little bit more to get around this, or raise it up a little bit or….trim the trans just a tiny little bit.
I am pretty sure this is about where it is going to end up.
Passenger side exhaust is no problem
Drivers side not so much…I was hoping to use a passenger side manifolds flipped and exiting out the front. But it won’t clear. So I will just have to make one. Not that big of a deal. I happen to have a set of flanges. It will be 1.5″ off the ports and then goto a 2″ or maybe 2.5″ common runner.
A Couple pictures of that area.
I don’t have any 1.5″ bends right now but this is a 1.25″ to see how it will work.
Hoping to have the engine mounts made on Monday.
