So when are we going to hear it run? Just kidding!! As Clint Eastwood says "A man's got to know his limitations". This project is beyond my pay grade!! Thanks for keeping us in the loop of your trials and tribulations! My 3.6 conversion is more than I would ever attempt by myself and its mostly plug and play. I can't imagine what your going through! My head would explode. I still think you will beat Marty on who's project will get done first. You can't rush perfection!

@Steve Hi Steve - I seem to have missed that part about limitations. It's bound to bite me at some point, hopefully not on this build!
I need to get on the "make it run" part. I've been working to decide which ECU to go with. I'm looking at Haltech and ECU Master Pro. It seems to be "go with what your tuner knows..." so I'm talking with tuners to try and find someone excited to try and help me. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) I just need to make the decision and get started. Thanks for the encouragement - I need it!

I said I'd make it fit! Now it's a simple matter of rebuilding that section so it sits back about .6" at the top and has clearance for the manifold below the seal. I mean, how hard can that be? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif)

I found something to make our lives easier...

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/static.dormanproducts.com-431-1713312937.1.JPG)

Converts cable to DBW (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
Beats trying to fit a floor mount eGas pedal and run wires.

Dorman 699-199
Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor
Application Summary: Acura 2008-03, Honda 2014-03

Luckily eGas is a Bosch tech so it's 99% all the same. 0-5v and 5-0v.

I don't use ANY Dorman crap that has electronics in it.

Way too many failures...

Dorman is the lowest of the low!

Trash in my book.

Just get a used or new Honda part and you'll be golden...

I'd take a 200k used Honda part over a Dorman anyday.

@Shivers - It sure will. And here's the best part: To ensure it'll fit, I pulled the firewall panel out and clipped it to the roof! I'll can build that offset section with the roof in place, knowing everything will clear.

All the Ferraris I've seen have flat shifters/consoles, but the Porsche Carrera GT and most of the new stuff have angled consoles. So I guess you will need to decide if you are building a Ferrari or a Porsche? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

Amazing work Chris as always. I like the shifter tilted somewhat up - maybe not all the way up. But I like the way it positions it for your hand and I have to believe with it slightly tilted it makes shifting more enjoyable.

I really like the air/oil separator "collar" in the trunk to focus attention. I am not sold on the clear panel; I would be concerned about being able to keep it clean. I think making it out of sheet metal and bead rolling a simple design that picks up the oil line angles would look good. I think a clear panel is trying too hard. Hey, you asked....

Love ya brother. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

@Cairo94507 Michael - Yep, after noodling on it for a bit, the clear panel is out. I worked up some V1 elements of the trunk liner that are, I hope, a simpler design. It makes more sense to just have it be "a trunk liner". I really need to spend time on more important things!

I have been following Chris and The Red Barn U-tube since the beginning. I love his shop, skills, and patience to do things twice or even three times to get it right (the way he wants it). This project is an evolution of ideas and vision.
Keep the videos coming and can’t wait to see her run (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) I know it will never be “finished “ because Chris will always will be modifying something.
Great respect, rock on Chris (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif) !!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif)

Love the shifter, makes my MR2 shifter look really crude. Scotty suggests transparent aluminum for the clear panel (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Again, the clear panel and V shape are out (for now! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) ). Here's the initial mock up of the trunk liner. There'll be a raised section down the center of the trunk to clear the air/oil separator, the trans mount and the trans itself.
No, the rear portion hasn't been shaped. It'll be this 6" wide "bump" all the way down and back.

More progress on the removable trunk liner. I'm pretty happy with where this looks like it's headed.

Maybe keep the hump the same width from front to rear to avoid the multiple humps look?

Definitely like the increased depth storage on the back end. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)
