after a few nights racking my brain for a solution to my hood clearance issue, i have arrived at a good compromise in my mind.

honestly i didnt want anything through the hood, but i am quite limited on room inside. I also greatly dislike a hot air pickup from behind the radiator (200*+), so through the practice (extra) hood it went..then it got a shaker cleaner cover in the way of a stainless mixer bowl i cut down. 3" tall scoops are gaudy on a ricer, so this is somewhat more subtle for a 9" hole in the hood... Still gets the cool air, everything fits, ez access to the carb for tuning.weather proof....first and formost thermal management was the biggest priorety as this is non intercooled, and i live in the wild west.( fucking hot ambient air temps)

heres some from my phone...the car is hammered dirty so please excuse..

thanks, no prob. you wont be disapointed in your eaton selection. they are awsome and really simple and easy to set up...no WG, No BOV, draw throught your maf...just check its oil and line up the belts. use your stock intake and just whack the runners and add a plenum. i would help you with this if i had a gt to play with..i do have a synchrowave...

mine should make noise tommorrow night or friday..hopefully tire smoke on friday. Im getting excited. just dont like rushing the detail stuff.

some vid...

have a couple expected small issues to address befor i hit the road in it..gonna repull the head in a modular (assembled) fashion and then fix the water sepage problem by truing the flange surface (mor than i did..only a couple thousandths off) and building my own intake gasket( the biggest culprit of the leak)...no biggie..2 fuel lines, 2 belts, some head bolts, up and out...

well if you notice in about 55 seconds into the video the car dies and was restarted, and smoking from the breather quite badly..i figured i had hurt a ring as it was obviously blow by (the motor was run in 15 minute heat cycles several times before giving any real throttle).. turnes out it was a head gasket. Not a detonation induced failure but a lifting of the head failure...due to me reusing a once new bolt set( i torqued during mock up) I should have known better i know. better to fail in the garage than on the road. head took a bit over 10 minutes to get off as a assembly..pretty cool i thought.

anyone have a part# for an ARP head stud set with correct washers?

i also figured a real simple way to control over boost by adjusting out the bypass valve limiter and introducing some bypass under wot..we shall see.. i havent reall had a chance to monitor actual boost levels, but im guessing alot by the way the motor responds..tuning is fairly close for baseline tune up..! its gonna be a hairy beast..lots of blower whine under accel..and im yet to finish my header and exhaust but figure if a 150hp sportbike can breathe through 1.5" tube, so can mine for now. the previous vid is real low quality from my still cam. dosnt do it justice..it is quite violent in nature. it should blow the tires away very nicely.. ;)

Suzukird sells arp head studs that should fit this. And if you have a headgasket problem dont forget about the mls headgasketthat strider can get. Thanks Stephen

mike, thanks for gettin those out so fast. got'em today! I'm gonna go felpro again as i like the idea of a fuseable link before expesive parts let go. maybe MLS next time if need be. I'm planning on keeping a real close eye on ign. timing as well as limiting the boost and creeping up on the tune. The new bolts should solve the problem as i have analyzed the gasket and it was definately under torqued. I plan on wrapping it up by the weekend.

its alive and well again. still have to limit timing, but leaks are gone--it wasnt my flange or my gasket, it was 2 cast grooves in the flange mating surface on the head itself that i had not adressed untill today-problem solved. it is running very well. i have the bypass actuator adj. stop bolt limiting the bypass to about 3/4's closed..works out to exactly 10 psi available right off of idle..probably the quickest boost responce i have ever witnessed...at least while in neutral..going for 15* and 10 lbs to start. maybe ill go for a cruise tommorrow. im sure 20 lbs is just a twist of a limiter bolt away..:)

Well, after battleing wound mrsa in a closed fingertip injury(felon) for the last month (having a 3/8" by 3/8" hole in my fingertip, and a 4 day stay in the mayo clinic, the removal of the majority of bone in my fingertip..all due to medical mismanagement-no fault of mayo..thank goodness for them), I have gotten quite sick of staring at all this stuff and my dormant car, so I am diving in once again. I am much improved at this point and have 2 weeks until my picc line is out! I am going to finally get serious on this blower motor and try to get some solid tuning in and see what she can do! Working in healthcare has its disadvantages...sucks. This has been an eye opener for me..anyway.. std 75mm vitaras, gti rods, oem MLS head gasket, innovate wideband..staytuned...ill try not to snagg this central catheter on anything haha..

its washed...hey its a start...its only 118* outside!

some pics from my phone..

i also have new plans for a custom stepped primary header in a 4:2:1 config. using my own long merge collector...from there it'll go straight into a 2" flex bellows, then a vband connector, then a 2" perf. core cherry bomb, into about a foot of 2" tube and finally into my Jardine sportbike can.. should sound nice and mellow. the exit will be undercar..light, straight and short and sweet. eliminates the raspyness..hoping to drop some boost with the big tubes so i can add more mix from the blower via less bypass..( more flow. mo power) we shall see.

finally got in the shop to do some exhaust fab..i have played with several header configs and this is the best and most durable solution. i have no clue what it is off of but is heavy duty wall thickness, 1" primaries about 12" long..i cut and welded my own flanges of 3/8 plate steel. exhaust is 1 5/8" merge into flex into 2" perferated core glasspack into my jardine can which is roughly 2.25" id. all tig welded, now i just have to fit it up and join A to B..only weighs around 6 lbs total.

header was port matched and exhaust hung. it is not as low as it looks due to camera angle and is infact nicley tucked into place. it has a hair better clearance than stock. hanger hardware resides hidden under hand brake console plastic..im happy. i"ll have a inch or so clearance between it and the swaybar... all else is good. more tonight. its just too hot out..monsoon crap.

hers a few pics between my phone and camera..

bro, that is some fine work. :D

modular is the way to go.

i'm still chewing on your draw through blower arrangement. i'm more a fan of intercooled mpfi now that i've become comfortable with it. i figure i'm done with carburetors on cars.

what you've done is really nothing short of magic. awesome.

update...i put a fresh crosshatch in it ( a good one too) set the pistons at .003" and rings a .017 and .019. and had to modify domes for the valves using the clay method... in case anyone is contenplating such a build.

so i did 50 miles on e85 today. its got 42 squirter and 66 mains. 15* timing. gas settings were happy at 58 mains and a 40 squirter...its loud and smooth< and lopes like a mother( this cam is the shit. period) .. it has seen 5lbs boost much of the day and a few 10lb half throttle runs to about 4k rpm...it idles at 15" vaccume, and goes down the road at 70 with zero throttle effort at 10" vaccume. it feels great with the auto..its amazing. it is a real tire fryer. it feels much the way a nice 5.0 stang runs with 4.10s and a loose converter..who needs 5 speeds with blower tq. i will post some vids once i get some miles under it. automatics FTW. shifts are manual right now as im yet to hook up my tps, but are real firm and the car just pulls and pulls.. id easily guess its making 120ftlbs right off idle..dyno/ vids/ tracktimes to come after everything is seated. im sure certain people will see the light of roots 1.3L motors once i post the speedometer footage.. i couldnt imagine down grading to a turbo or other centrifugal compressor with any lag. lag is non existant with this combo and is a press of the gas away.. i love my zuk!
