Yep, I was thinking engine... -12 would be a bit big for a transaxle LoL. I’m using one for the engine and a lower temp one for the transaxle
Looks very professional Stephan. Just make sure the connection between the 4 pipes and the collector is sealed/tight, or you will have false readings from the O2 sensors.New Exhaust System Rev.1, Chapter 6 and final chapter for the headers.
The headers are finished and I installed them this evening. I had some concerns about heat deformation with all the welds but it turned out that they fit like a champ. Collectors mated to the rear system and manifolds to the heads without any stress or force. Distances and spaces could be maintained as laid out. The recap of this little DIY project is that I would always do it again. I am sure it was a lengthy story but I hope it was enjoyable. Still some hangers and brackets required and the exhaust tips are on the drawing board...
Hello Johan,Looks very professional Stephan. Just make sure the connection between the 4 pipes and the collector is sealed/tight, or you will have false readings from the O2 sensors.
Is there a link to that Falcon build? I cant find it.I wanted to share this alternate approach of fitting an SB4 engine into a SLC chassis. Here it is done on a Falcon F7 which is using an SLC base and wearing a different dress over it.This owner decided to go with water pump and accessory drive in place and had to cut and weld the living daylight out of that poor car. Also this car is not for the faint hearted. It has received Garrett twin turbos on top of the 750 stock ponies, Holley ECU, lower compression pistons.... New output, "Astronomical units"
Hello Stephan, I am interested in replicating your Aluminum mounts. Can you provide the thickness of the angle aluminum and some dimensions? Also, will you share part numbers for the push-in bushings?My Tesla Calipers arrived the other day and I went over to see Jon Haas at Pantera Electronics in Harleysville PA. Lucky me it was only a few towns over and Jon gave me a tour to see his wonderful original 1972 white Pantera. I picked my cable, connectors and push button controller while being over there. Jon, an electronic engineer and enthusiast to develop electrical and electronic components to make older cars more reliable. He has some really cool stuff and a ton of ideas for the future.
Here is my SLC version with Tesla calipers. I machined the brackets from 6061-T6, used stainless, serrated and threaded push in bushings. Bolts are M10 x 1.5 x 90mm 10.9 flanged. The unthreaded area of the bolt is just long enough that the caliper sliding sleeves are not hitting any threaded area. I raised the calipers slightly to make room for the push rod from the lower control arms. I was able to use the old attachment points of the previous calipers without any changes.
Hello Mason,Stephan, why did you need 8 push-in bushings? I'm only seeing 4 being used between the two calipers.
