Re: KVA / SGT build

Hi Dan, some folks say that the crossover provides increased efficiency, other deny that. There are a lot of opinions also here in gt40s. I looked at different exhaust types before I started, and my benchmark is shown in the attachment. By the way, it was really exciting and fun to work on it, and straightforward tubes as in your GTD are unachieveable for me, working with standard bent tubes (I used 15, 30, 45, 60 and 90 degree pre-bend stainless).

KVA / SGT build

After having the gear cable attached to the gearbox, next step was to do the same on the shifter. I detached the cable from the car and mounted it to the shifter, fig 1. Luckily, I measured the cable lenght correctly, and it fits perfectly into the car, fig 2 (see also my Ford-logo equipped wooden knob on the shifter, looks great). The link to the gearbox was last thing to do, fig 3, and for the time being, gear shifter got the status „pre-installed“. To finish, I believe the clutch cylinder needs to work first - next job already defined 🛠.

More to follow,

Udo

After checking the gear shifter mounting situation a second time, I felt that a reinforcement was worth to install, fig 1, and the stiffness advantage afterwards was impressive enough to keep this solution. Some more residual work to be done, e.g. the cylinder head ventilation into the catch tank, fig 2, which has now more distance to the exhaust pipes. Last thing was to take out some weight from my silencer mounting bracket - some 13 mm drills, and the part lost some percent of its former weight (I didn‘t measure in order to avoid any frustration &#128526.

My beetle needed some attention yesterday, so only things happened on the 40 were installation of clutch cylinder and throttle cable. Really like the bordering tool for the clutch line, fig 1, and after a while, the Audi connecting pipe got mounted to the gearbox and the clutch line (connector on the right in fig 2). Finally, I installed the throttle cable, no issues here, big surprise 😉.
