looking good. you are gonna put a dash bar back in the "anchor" buggy, right? Looks like a great place for a big rock to intrude on the passenger area in a rollover.

I dig that you guys put the rear Coil overs on the link for a little extra room under the tire. Most people (race trucks aside) just bolt them to the axle.

I will remember that and maybe employ sometime...

Nice work.....

I'll post some pics up of the "dash bar" when I can. It was one of the pieces I was holding off on because I needed to make sure I could pull the motor and trans out the front of my rig and leave room for steering and brakes. Its tight quarters with the motor pushed back so far, but I have made something that I am really happy with...

Alex!!!!

This build is awesome, I've got to take some time to drive down and see this and then spend the weekend wheelin' Oregon.
You must know someone with a CNC Miling Machine to do that kind of stuff????? They might even trade labor for labor on stuff.

Sickness. It'll be interesting to see how the air chair works out, since that shock was designed around a linkage actuated MTB with an average of a 2.5:1 leverage ratio. Sorry, I work for a MTB shock tuning company, had to throw a comment about the shock out there. Love the build!

Finally some pictures of my "dash bar"... I reckin I will do another removable tube directly over my motor from "A" pillar driver to passenger for some added protection from the seemingly unavoidable flop.



What is that Aluminum rectangular shape doing on the intake side of his motor you might be thinking???? Well its my custom shorty intake for the turbo setup. I love the line of sight I gained from this mod and I hope it will make throttle response nice and crisp, plus it gave me legs a bit more room

extreme closeup


More pictures before the end of the week showing the end product.

Here is a finish up look at my aluminum intake.







I did a slight angle to kick the throttle body towards the center of the car

Both of those intakes are ridiculous! I was interested in what your plans where for them, glad to see you went all out.

Maybe I missed it but what are the Turbo specs? PSI, fuel mods, ect?

Also its making my head hurt keeping the two rigs straight in all the pictures, lol.

yeh, both builds are pretty extensive without spending money on everything, I recycled my stock intake and some other aluminum i had around the shop to build my short intake which gave me more visibility and room in the cockpit.

As for the turbo, I am going with 4-7 psi. I will start low and edge my way up. I am going to see what the stock computer can handle. There will be minimal fuel mods if any to start, but we will see where that gets me. I have heard good things about turbo charging these motors with low boost. Also I have an 01 motor which has bigger fuel injectors (pink tops) that can handle a little boost and my computer from what research I have done has fuel parameters that can keep up. I am not sure on the specs of my turbo, but I got it from off a mercedes diesel. I purchased it from a Mercedes mechanic who said it produces boost at low rpm so it shouldn't lag too much. The power to weight ratio should be awesome! I'll see what I can get for turbo specs if you are interested.

Rigs are looking sweet. Maybe I should look into the turbos alittle more before I do my swap to accommodate for any clearance issue that may arise.

I sent you guys an email a few days back.

Alex,
You are a craftsman elite, the stuff you build is amazing. I can't wait to see these done. Mailing you something tomorrow.
The turbo, it's tough to find a bunch of data on real world off-road use. Most of the stuff is 2wd Taco drag racers and all they want is mega top end power. I think the low boost with the pink's will be the hot ticket, no other mods needed. If you get above 8psi it sounds like that is when you really have to dump the money into them. But that's just what I've read on the internet.

Finally I got to doing some exhaust work.

2.5" all the way



Doubled up the tube thickness for extra strength at the turbo

well, I am convinced. my tired 22r is going away for a 2rz once the opportunity arises. I would also like to see more details on turbocharging the 2rz. are there any other websites you are going off of?
