  • Steve Wood: I remember my Dad watching Joe and swearing he was dead on.  After I grew up, I thought he was full of it, but, in the past few years, I have come to believe that Joe, was spot on.  How things change.

  • motorhead: I remember the days when we were retrofitting intercoolers from random vehicles to our cars... now the options are seemingly endless: [link]

    February 21 2023, 08:59:02 AM
  • motorhead: Yeah, I protected it recently. Send a request I'll add you.
    February 23 2023, 12:14:22 AM
  • motorhead: Spent most of the last few days making room for and installing the intercooler. Sheesh... you'd think that a car with so much front overhang would be easy. It wasn't. So much customization.
    February 23 2023, 12:16:26 AM
  • Steve Wood: Some cars resist customization!  You got to start with an older base to work with.

    February 27 2023, 09:19:31 AM
  • nocooler: I really like the blowoff valve placement! Lol
    February 27 2023, 01:08:17 PM
  • motorhead: Thanks... and leave my BOV alone. It's optional. Did a little plumbing today: [link]
    February 27 2023, 10:05:02 PM
  • Steve Wood: Bovine Omissions Valve?  Must be one of those vegan things.
    March 03 2023, 01:21:21 PM
  • nocooler: Siting in the master cylinder it’s a brake outage valve….
    March 06 2023, 10:33:07 AM
  • motorhead: maybe I should recirculate it into the intake for when it boils over? I have room for another hose: [link]

  • nocooler: [link] - I'm not much of a Cooper fan but this interview with Jay Barry from ignite racing fuels was pretty damn good. He is the godfather of ethanol fuels

  • motorhead: And then put in work making it fit: [link] Sorta. Gonna need a 6" cowl now.
    March 14 2023, 10:10:43 AM
  • nocooler: Just my luck - wife comes home and the civic is whining like it’s low on power steering fluid. Sure enough it’s low, but no visible leaks. I popped a boot off the rack and I found the missing fluid!
    March 15 2023, 01:49:12 PM
  • nocooler: Honda dealer wanted $2000 for parts/labor to replace the rack, I’m in it $450ish for parts. Now I get to drop the cradle to pull the rack!

    March 16 2023, 09:17:45 AM
  • motorhead: This build is very TR inspired. [link] I need to get some "4.8 SFI TURBO" badges made.
    March 16 2023, 09:38:38 AM
  • Steve Wood: Works for me
    March 17 2023, 01:26:34 PM
  • nocooler: I need to come to Texas to get some trucks worth fixing.
    March 17 2023, 06:59:02 PM
  • Steve Wood: Yeah...better chance body wise
    March 17 2023, 08:18:53 PM
  • motorhead: Saskatchewan has vintage trucks everywhere. My BIL has one on his property that is trapped in some tall brush. And a 30s something or another car...
