Nope these are stock and yes I will have clearance issues. I plan to cut the lip and roll back to see where that gets me. Another good reason to not get crazy on buying the first set of tires.

Anybody with a Vorteh kit. At idle if you rev a bit does your intake flapper rattle? mine does and it's not the control motor. True test will be on the road perhaps it will go away then? I had jumped it so perhaps the batt is low straining alternator which pulls from accessories?

poor cars been abused lately

Thanks. I think you should keep your project and just work on it as time and money allows. This project has been going on for 8 years. I'm glad I never gave up on it.

Here is the Vortech water tank, doubt it holds 1 litre.

I'm looking at this one, holds 2.6 gallons. Plenty if I ever run a cool suit too.

my project has became more of a race/drag car than i originally wanted and i don't think i would ever be completely happy with it. i am going to get a miata, do a stock ls1/t56 swap with irs 8.8, and AC. make a very fast, very streetable car that i can autocross and still get over 30mpg.

lol funny you mention AC, I'm picky on that too and I'm in NJ. A lot delete it but I want 10's with AC and full interior. Waiting on my 10s motor that's at the machine shop.


Yeah you gotta follow your vision. Only down side on cars is you may come to the conclusion there is no one size fits all answer. There may come a time when you want a commuter car, a drag car, a track day car....then there is the truck to haul. It doesn't end.

Just to give you a heads up , That 2.6 gallon tank filled with ice will get you about 30-45 sec WOT on ice and about 1.5 to 2 min cool water at WOT

Keep in mind the SC will make about 150-170 deg IAT at the SCT pipe that through your cooler and 25deg air is going to heat up fast , dump that 80 deg water back into the ice .... I think you see where I am going

I know this because I ran a PWR cooler with almost a 5 gallon tank and at the end of a 1/4 mile pass and back to the pits I had about ambient temps in the water , some times warmer

Guess I'll have to rethink it then, most track sessions are 20 minutes. Sounds like I'd be down to cool water after only a warm up lap? And ambient after one lap at speed. For this year it will have to do, maybe I can clock the SC head and run a FMIC for next year?

Thanks
Dan

Waiting on the long block
