Throttle cable bracket etc. It'* tough to get pics back there. The bracket I used was the N* bracket that came with the throttle body. I tried the L67 and it wasn't going to fit for me. A machinist could probably work something out though. The tip in is totally different and therefore makes it tougher. I would suggest leaving the TB off while you work things over and get the throttle cable onto the throttle. The N* throttle cable has a ball on the end..L67 has a cylinder. Using a drill I modified the hole for the slightly larger cylinder. Then began bending the bracket (leave cables attaches and slip them into bracket and move them to ensure WOT and full closed.

The 10mm nut at the top of the TB is one point of holding, the other is one of the two 8mm screws on the side. Here'* a shot from the radiator to show the approximate angle I bent the bracket.

A cut between the two cables to allow the change in length. Also noted is that I have cable ties to hold the cables in place. The stock pin is in the wrong position when the cables are in the holder

You can see the cylinder of the throttle cable and backside of bracket. STB was blocking flash.


Here we see that 8mm bolt and how the bracket hole was elongated to achieve the proper angle and distance.

I can probably get reasonable measurements if you'd like.

I got a few things done today take a look.... Unfortunately I'm not sure if Iíll be back to wrenching untill Tuesday :( .

Touched up my alternator with the angle grinder


Put my new heater hoses on; that tool made it a breeze!


Prettied up my fuel rail (not with that paint in the background)


Next to a piece of aluminum which just came out of one of our CNC mills


Still a lot to do....

Wow, interesting idea with the fuel rail. I had no idea you could really paint it like that. When I get my new injectors, I'll at least clean it up...but now you got me thinking. Assuming I use engine paint (same as my valvecovers), is there any risk to painting the rail?

On another note, that thing is looking MEAN!

Take off your coolant reservoir and clean it though!!

I donít know about any risk I just did it; sealed up any openings and glass beaded the fuel rail. Then cleaned and rinsed it off thoroughly with an air hose and lacquer thinner and repeated.

That coolant reservoir has some nice dirt baked in there very well. I must have tried to clean that thing up ever few months to no avail. I tried a little brake cleaner once but I donít want to melt a hole in there.

Thanks for the compliments!

2 cans brake cleaner and a rag...shake vigorously reappling brake cleaner as needed.

Mine didn't melt at all.

A rag balled on the end of a coat hanger works well. It helps immensely to physically contact the gunk instead of just chemicals/liquid touching it.

Well I got back to it today after a few day break for family issues and R&R. I made a brass plug to seal off the EVAP hole on the SC, that thing is in there good too. But I think I have my headers all bolted up and ready to go, I'm alittle worried about the rear header where the crossover dumps into it. I got my coil bracket and coils on today.

I've been considering purchasing SLP headers and ditching these TOGs, every time I screw with these TOGs that crossover pipe pisses me off like no other.

I picked up some hose for the PCV and vacuum caps today.


Tomorrow should be belts, coolant, heaters hoses (motor side), STB, and a few other little things.
