Cutting. Rings will cover the exhaust outs...

Up on the truck and off to get exhaust

Unless you have masochistic tendencies, that was probably a good idea. Took me 4 tries and 2 entirely different systems to get the exhaust the way I wanted it. Looking back, I dodged your setup because of the exhaust work but now I believe it might have been easier, although more costly, to install a turbo'd 2.5 with that single tail pipe. Very nice work thus far. beerchug.gif

If I wasn't concerned about the noise, I could have gone with a single side exhaust, with just a resonator (still below 90db). I would have probably walked away for about $250-300. Doubling up actual mufflers and a jointed Y pipe for ease of maintenance and black tips is what made this a bit more spendy. Although it won't be as quiet as I want, it is being built with a bigger turbo in mind. Trade offs.

Step one done. Time for exhaust trim rings..

DAmmmmn!!

Very nice! North or south of $750?
Mueller
Nice!
effutuo101
Thanks!
As far as price, Just a sneeze north of 750. Half of what other shops quoted me.
effutuo101
I went with 2 wicked flow mufflers which drove up the cost.

You should at least get the Thing fired up,,,,, the pedal thing is gonna be some work and maybe a little heat out the pipes will Really fire you up..... and you can piss off the neighbors any time you want...

If I had received a similar quote I would have never touched mine, period. lol-2.gif Drop the Shops name if you're happy with them. If you don't mind, lay down and take a pic looking up so we can see the entire system. Do we have a jealous or suicide avatar, yet? beerchug.gif

From the engine bay.

Jessie's muffler in Lemon grove. Nice guy, he does a lot of the low riders and classic cars around here. So, he completely understood when I said I need it tucked up and out of the way.
Same day build. The only thing he was out of was the tips. He did step up the tube size to handle the planned larger turbo.
As far as sound and performance, I will have to wait until my car fires up.
effutuo101
Had to take a break for a while to get some house stuff taken care of.
Exhaust trim rings. Have to swap out the bolts for button style.
effutuo101
Finally got my headligh release sorted out.
effutuo101
Mounted computer and ran harness to engine bay.
Built a center console (WIP)
effutuo101
More center console.just a couple of things to sort it for wiring.

1 more fitting and the fuel lines are done!
Then on to finishing up the tank ( had to go back to stock location and tank). Then pressurize and test.
effutuo101
Hehe double pic.
effutuo101
Got these foodies in the mail. Thank you PMB!
effutuo101
Life got in the way. Back to incremental progress!
Rear brake and clutch lines all run. Peddle cluster mounted. Have to get another clutch soft line made. Incorrect fitting on one side. Now on to the front brake lines and a couple of block off plates to tidy things up. Brake/clutch Fluid resivior mounted and lines run.
Built the last segment of my fuel line. That goes in tomorrow after coffee.
New seat brackets are exactly what the doctor ordered!
I will post some pictures once I tidy up.
effutuo101
Peddle cluster in and mounted. Brake fluid in the rear brake and clutch lines and resiviors. Time to ramp up the pressure, check for leaks and see what else needs done.
76-914
Looking good. Your pretty damned close now. Been sitting in it making Vroom noises yet? beerchug.gif
effutuo101
Hahaha! Nope! But the wife wants to know when it will be ready to drive. She gives me grief about how long this has taken. I think she wants to drive it more than I do! biggrin.gif

That's the nice thing about a conversion. Anyone can drive your car. No more pre-drive conversations of "do this, don't do that". After I got mine sorted, I handed the keys to my BiL and told him to depress the clutch when starting and to drive it. He's 70 and loved it. If he drove my stock 914 he'd have needed a 1 hour forum before hand. lol-2.gif

Nice! Where did you find those center console switches?
effutuo101
Ha! West Marine. The come in grey and can be painted.

Blue sea will build to specification and color if you want to.

There be clutch and rear brake pressure! I don’t know how many years since the car last had brakes as I got it as a shell.

Keep up the progress, the beauty will be on the road in no time.

Cheers,

Front brakes installed and pressure tested. Still have to get them rebuilt, but it can’t go to get dyno work with out brakes.

Next x fuel level sending unit and evaporate tank.

I'm looking forward to the finale! I finally got my 914 dialed in quite well. Hopefully I can keep her running longer and drive her more this year!

Sweet!
Hope to her this beast start mid month. It all depends on work, schedules and coin.

Ha! My wife said the same thing! She asked if I, when working late, sit in the car and make vroom vroom noises.

Thank you Rich for the fuel level sender! I so owe you!
One step forward two steps back! Finally back to where I was a month ago.
3 more boxes of stuff sorted through and either put in play or repacked for a future day.
Nothing more I own will go on the car. From here on out is it fabrication time. And all motor/cooling related.
Post build list is being thought about.
1. Have Eric refresh all brakes ( just to be 100% on them.)
2. rear cross drilled disks
3. cross drilled vented front disks

It is really odd seeing the car on the roller jacks and not be missing any pieces...

Rear brakes ordered.
Battery location changed. Battery tray mints, new cables run, cables connected.
Transmission oil done.
Removed oil heater and installed filter.
Removed collant lines that ran to the oil filter.
Engine oil done.
A few minor odds and ends that I am waiting for from the welder. Then fuel and coolant.
Swapping my side intakes and mirrors.

Almost time to pressure test all fluid systems.

What the Hell? poke.gif Did your camera break? confused24.gif We demand pics of these conversions. beerchug.gif

Only a 120mph speedo? Seems a bit low?

Clear and nice guages though, I like the face print on the surround!

But Willow springs is right near you and that's probably a 130-140mph course!

Sierra Marine grade gauges. Figured water and impact resistant. Why not?
