Default Zilla'* rebuild (exhaust mod revealed, gauges going in.....)

Wasn't planning on doing it this early. I was waiting until I got a couple other jobs done for some test cars here, but a topic in Forced Induction was begging me to do part of it now.

Winter plans are to add about 50hp. Nearly everything is here for it already, other than gaskets. Here'* a few pics of the teardown, including my 'quick release' INTENSE FWI:

LIM and heads will come off later (after the new SC is done). This SC will not be going back on the car. Totally revised porting method instead. This TB will be re-used.


Now the joys of working with air tools on a clean engine:

It'* also nice to work in a garage 5 feet from your furnace. Doing laundry also helps to keep things nice and toasty.

Holds it in there tight, but makes it very easy to pull for inspection. Road debris, tire rubber from the track, or whatever. No tools to pull it.

I have an M90 to finish for a member, and an L36 LIM, not to mention a couple TB'* first. I should be at the work in earnest by late January/early February.

I still have to pull the LIM and heads, and 'create' the next supercharger.

Hey that thing looks familiar! That FWI looks nice too! Too bad I wasn't around to help pull the heads, but hopefully those pistons are in good shape.

So, just a wild guess here (I'm usually wrong with these things, lol), but are you planning either an M90 or MP112 swap????
