Started work on stripping the car..
First the interior was removed, then the dash board, heater matrix, etc..
Iv chipped up all the sound deadening material, there was 8kg of the tar based matting... Total weight of all the sound deadening inc bulkhead insulation, underside of carpet sound insulation, etc was 62Kg.
Iv also removed the heater matrix, most ducting, unneeded interior parts etc totalling a weight of 41kg. The original front seats are 12kg heavier than the seats I'm fitting. That's a saving of 115KG so far..
Iv still got a lot I want to remove in the way of wiring from the body loom.. The car will still be road legal but things like abs, airbag, electric windows/seats/sunroof/radio/heater system, etc wiring will all be cut out.
The 1G engine and gearbox have also been removed, the engine was weighed in minus a few useful bits and bobs, the gearbox is probilly going to make its way onto my friends AE86..
1JZ removed from the Aristo.. Turbos removed, new Manifold fitted...
Chucked engine in Altezza on original 1G mounts.. Im going to modify the subframe and get the engine sitting an inch further back.
Just wanted to see how it fits and start to think about where I want the Wastegate and Exhaust Downpipe etc..
The engine already has a Modifed sump from when I fitted it to the Aristo..
Turbo im using is a Holset HX35 with a 12cm Exhaust housing.
The exhaust housing has been modified.. The internal Wastegate hole has been welded shut, this was filled with a plug so the flow inside of the scroll is not disturbed by a cavity. I also crafted and welded in a plate to cover the gap in the outlet, again this was done so the flow of gas is not disturbed.
*Pic of turbo coming soon*
Just welded and shot blasted exhaust housing...
HKS GTll 60mm External Wastegate.. NEED FLANGES..
Do you have??
More updates coming soon..
