I had a great long weekend, especially Sunday. I got the entire day to work on the Seo.

Got the engine bay painted after three trips to home depot trying to find the closest color spray paint I could. Thecolor I got was called Satin Lagoon, whatever, by Rustoleum. It wasn't glossy so I had to go back and get a glossy clear coat, it turned out great as it matches decently and if I remember right the factory teal blue color wasnt used in the engine bay as it was a dull shade of the exterior color?






Next came the Fidenza flywheel and stage 5 clutch. I bolted it all together with the ARP flywheel/pressure plate bolt kit.





Finally I installed my solid plastic engine mounts and put it in the car.






Ive got alot more photos to share but im too tired to link them right now, still in this last pic tell me what you think of battery location? I thought itd be better for weight distribution to put it the right front tire.

Pretty snazzy! Looking good man. Battery placement makes sense if you're keeping it in the front.

A/C, I wish but with the current turbo location theres no way, nor do I have a two ribbed crank pulley. Once I have it running decently I plan on hitting up Sacha for one of his beautiful manifolds for a top mount T3 and then I should have all the space back and I'll put it back on.

Yes, this is a street/drag racing car. I like the location but think I may need either a smaller battery or I may have to cut into the inner fenderwell a bit to move it further back.

Great job so far man turning out sweet, im running a low mount manifold with a TF035 in my paseo and it just clears the A/C compressor. 90 deg silicone off the front of the turbo just sneaks past the P/S pump too.

A mate of mine had an EP82 starlet GT and stripped out the A/C, I envied how much room he had at the front for manifold and wastegate and piping and such without the condenser in the way, but he used to go mental in the summertime haha.

If you wanna check out my build its in the Works in Progress section. By the way you should definitely go with a smaller battery, I have an Odyssey PC925 in mine, but in the boot. If id had the room up front id have put it up front to keep the weight over the front tyres.

Love the build man keep it up.

Got my cam sensor housing/old dist housing back from my machinist. He cut the old housing off and made a new housing for the Ford cam sensor. Then he made some 2" fuel rail spacers for my longer injectors with the adapters.

Hopefully I can get them installed this week and then build my fuel system using -6AN braided line. I have a Aeromotive adj FPR and 340lph pump.









The spacer on the top left is factory length.

Got to work on the fuel system tonight. Mounted the billet rail with longer spacers to fit the 820cc Siemens Deka ev6 fuel injectors, why 820's because 1000's were just too much :2thumbsup: lol. I then ran -6an feed and return braided fuel lines with Russell fittings plumbed into an Aeromotive adj fp regulator mounted on the end of fuel rail.

The fuel tank was removed and I took the stock pump out, we are out of stock on the 340lph pump so I just installed a bulk head fitting in the top of the fuel tank cover tonight and when the pumps come in i'll install it.

I still need to add a one way check valve and inline fuel filter along with securing the lines to the body.

These are the stock lines I removed from the car.

You can easily get away with a smaller Civic battery or something like that. What would be very cool to see is a small lithium battery though. You could keep the battery weight under 10 lbs with one.

That battery is fine... extra weight in the front will help

Next best thing for a drag/street car is to move the fuel tank up front like so :deal:

No, I had two 5 gallon upright fuel cells in the trunk, one for fuel and the other water for the intercooler. I reinstalled the stock tank because I hated it, having to pop the trunk and fiddle with the damn sealing caps on the cells, they are always a PIA to open.

I just want it to be a nice street car with some drag stuff in it to help. After watching last weeks episode of " Street Outlaws" I think I may be up for a trip to Oklahoma looking for a Asian VW bug, lol. This is of course after I get it dialed in at the track and local street.

Anyone wanna ride along? :2thumbsup:

Well, I finally got some coil overs. K Sports! They look awesome and DAMN the drop! Lol, I thought I was low with the GR2's and lowering springs. This really helped out though as I can jump on the front bumper and it wont hardly move, I can't wait to launch it at the strip with some good tires :pepper:

Tuckin' tires rollin on 15's.....:bananarock:
