That cluster is getting us real excited. Perfect use of old and new elements!

Thanks pjgmgg and good luck on your future wagon project and finding a good candidate.

Centerforce nailed it.

Maintaining a factory-ish looking below deck continuation of the dash into a rolled pan that houses ac vents, controls and covers the guts of the dash is going to be really challenging.

My thoughts are getting another dash and flipping it upside down and using another gauge cluster with the inner extents of the trim and glass. That all isn't going to happen now but wiring and placement need to be close to come back to do the sheet metal and detail work to polish it off.

Here is a snapshot of the inner working of the life racing unit and how it will be set up. All CANbus connections, push button start, heads up display, trouble code key pad, gps traction control, trans shifting ect all covered. Going in stages engine wiring misc tasks to get prepped for dyno and chassis wiring to chassis dyno then out to the desert crazy to think

My co worker is cooking up a way to do the steering wheel cc. Can't go into specifics with his proprietary stuff... essentially he routes fine copper wires that pic up signals from sensors located on the wheel similar to how modern cell phones sense if the phone gets rotated. He was working on these steering wheel proto types for denso.

Updates...

Ryan's handiwork on the motor harness. The harness will be tucked inside the galley of the manifold so for now we laid it bare for all to see. The COP mounts are mocked up here and do a great job of locating the injector and COP plugs.







Crank trigger and custom ring. The trigger mount is temporary as this is where the power steering pump is located.



Before you know it the motor will look like this



Radiator and condenser back from techline.

Before with tube and fin condenser



After with improved larger condenser from Diablo Air

I like those stabilizer arms for the alternator and pump! Looks like something out of hotrod mag. Don't forget to tighten those jamb nuts

Brian, the lucky customer of that ls has twin turbos in the buggy its going in.

Daniel, the serpentine pulley system is a st and performance kit from a generation ago. Its a decent setup however anticipating the need to run a tensioner as this system is rigid which are known to throw belts.

Ryan, its still hard to gauge the end. Dynoing the motor hopefully happens in the next month. Forsee the wiring and chassis tuning going till February. We are literally going to wire and plumb everything so I been busy with tracking down anything that has a plug due to knowing exactly how to partition the 32 bit pdu. Once the gauge cluster is set up with the new display it will be about 7 weeks to get restored. Was hoping to get up to Danzio once a week once the wagon got there but work has been really busy with a hard Dec 7 deadline. Our manufacturer gave us a 250k price break incentive if we deliver our 10G part on time so we are really under the scope with upper mgmt.

Update: Last years product is making waves...and the product we just got back from the Jan crunch are functional and are getting ready for release.

Things been busy and hanging me up from getting back on more progress but I did need to get up to see the man who did the sheet metal work on the wagon to pick up a few things...and thought I'd share more of his artwork

update: Danzio been swamped with a busy race season and currently in Baja supporting some customers rigs. Motor is inching its way to the dyno. Away to a technical conference and going to drop in to see what Greg is up to on the Mog 9 "might as well build" next week. Hopefully by second week of July we'll wrap up the first stage of chassis wiring and the dyno tune then wagon migrates to Fabbys new shop to dial her in



Motor on a dyno stand and the custom crank required a special adapter and a kennedy flywheel to run on the dyno.

^ the billet deal in place of the distributor is an msd oil plug pn 8513 which still engages the oil pump and is part of the conversion to cop.

Tom,


That's crazy looking!!!

The engine harness looks like it has about 100 wires in it.... what sort of exotic stuff are you doing??

The "Might As Well" project truck is ready for your visit!!! Tuesday still works for me, but we may need to push to around 2:30PM if that's OK with you. I've got a meeting that is supposed to end by 2, but I'm sure you are familiar with how that often goes...

Greg, The method behind the harness is way above me I'll find out but think they are spares for flexibility down the road. The ign is essentially ls so if I decide to go that route in the future it is close. Fortunately the sbc and bbc stuff has gotten very reasonable with all the attention of the ls. Would probably go bbc if my lead foot looses its sensitivity with this setup.

Really looking forward to checking the blazer! 2:30 is no problem. I'll probably get there before traffic and find some of fine granite ledges NH has to offer and max out the rti on the rental on.

Thanks Larzzon! Keep up the great work on your cj2a

Update: Danzio dyno'd the motor Monday. Everything went smoothly. Engine builder estimated 440 hp and 460 ft #'s, actual is 420 hp and 430 ft #'s. Will post up the dyno video when it's made available to me.



Put in an order for a Circle D pro series single disc tq converter which will be based on the dyno sheet and in the process of getting a Meziere LT1 153 tooth flex plate (month out).

Nice thing about the Circle D converters is if you decide to make a stall change within the 1st year it free.

^^^Closer to broke gearing up for chassis wiring and need stuff so ordered the following



PCS 4l80E CAN module kit



SPW universal window kit and faux cranks



Factory heavy duty column turn signal



and the Restomod air HaymakerII snub nose reactor and tri vents in gun metal

-> insert single or double din player here <-



liking this arrangement



Current dash



And thinking this layout will work nicely. The kicker are rear AC/heat ducts and a leaning to a console that can go under the bench seat that can house both pair

I was doing a search regarding some suspension ideas and found this build. All I can say is wow. Impressive to say the least. Regarding the rear suspension and the geometry/shocks, what ratio are the rockers and how did you determine spring rate?

The Cantilever bellcranks are 2:1. Shocks are 2.5" 8" travel valved 60/80 600# springs based on estimated vehicle weight + gear and passengers.

So have you got the window kit? If so, does it look quality and easy to install? I'm getting close to needing this.

For a cable type universal install the SPW kit came highly recommended from the guy that did my sheet metal mods and the Ford with the Carson top and is his go to choice for his builds. If you want to use the factory cranks and regulators try then these are also very good.

So after looking at a ton of period dashes to borrow some ideas from finally settled on the Lincoln Zephyr.







To get the shifter off the floor integrated the JB t case shifter next to the gauge cluster and will be bowed upward so no one gets jousted. The restomod air unit is also mounted. Added the additional tunnel to run the ac and heat through.



Update: drive by wire vette pedal mounted.





Update: PCS Shifter mounted next to the Haymaker







Thinking of doing something like this c10 ash tray for the grey hill keypad.



The new push button bezel just came out...
