  1. there have been other projects going. plus i moved to Oregon. there has been some progress. just a few updates.
  2. @q-tip the fuel management and harness was going to set me back at or over $2000. I can go with the crane ignition system and the demon carburetorfor less than $1200 plus I don't have to deal with any tuning by way of laptop just jetting based off of exhaust temperatures.
  3. Well the latest is I plan on going with a mighty demon blow through 4 barrel carburetor no more fuel injection to keep things simple and cheaper. I will post some pictures soon of some changes. I had to disassemble the turbo and re-clock it to get the outlet in a more favorable position. I will need to secure the wastegate and add a BOV. the turbo piping nightmare that I've been living is finally gone with this setup now I need to drop 700 bucks for a carb.
  4. i took it for its first test drive with the diesel conversion. here is a link to the latest video.
  5. Well Mr ford galaxie, I am glad you enjoy your 45 plus year old performance and technology. Your lack of understanding of the 3.0 supra six is obvious. Modestly built I should be seeing 380 to 450 HP with half the engine displacement, compared to my old v8. my motor in the last car it was in put 430 HP to the tire. BTW I would put my money on the Lexus for the win. so why dont you meet him with your 8 mpg. Or perhaps changing oil for a living you cannot afford the trip. If my opinion bothers you then I suggest you rethink when and where you subject others to your opinion.
  6. I recently got to go for a ride in the scamp with the 2j. The Two words I had were, holy fuc#! Some people do not understand supra power. There is something to be said about a 12 or 13 second car that you can hold a conversation in while going down the road. Done with fat and heavy v8 power. The scamp did get 27 mpg on the Chevy power tour. So, I say supra power for the win!
  7. yeah talked to him every so often. he was inspired by my build. he has the budget and the arsenal od help to make it happen. the car is currently in So cal at Kaizen Motorsports getting some fat upgrades.
  8. i had taken some time off from the Duster. having issues with fitting the piping. torn between going with a forward facing intake manifold or cutting the fender-well to make more room. the intake is 500 to 1500 bux. not sure i want to go that route. so until i come up with the magic bullet remedy for this problem i will let it sit stagnant. though i did finish the aluminum air dam.
  9. Ok, I have been looking for a rebuild-able core or a runner. it seems in words of ZEROW. these damn diesels are like Rocking Horse Shit. any leads on this engine? i cannot afford to do another VW Diesel swap. i am still in pain from my VW Diesel/CJ5 swap.
  10. i used what i had for materials in the garage to whip this bracket up. my son said it barelt took 45 min from start to finish. sadly i no longer have my work service truck with the Mig welder so i got this slag slinger from harbor frieght for 90 bux its functional. not pretty but does the job.master is installed, line has been routed. what is next is waiting for the soft line for the clutch and double flare the end, bleed it and try it out. [/url]
  11. ok here is a much better video, now the hill has been crested. the easier fab work is at hand.
  12. Man no sooner i started the engine, my wife tripped over my shit pile in the garage and took a header. i had to cut the video without burning anything down. wife is OK,a little bruised but she is good for taking a beating so all is OK. HAHA. once the air was cleared from the lines and lines tightened the throttle response was really crispy. damn am i excited. i will take another vid tomorrow in the day light. Whoooo Hoooo!
  13. There are two adaptors one for toyota bellhousing from ACME and the one for toyhota bell to chevy trans from OTT. I think I have about 1000 to 1100 into the adapters combined. I am so looking forward to my next project after this one is done. got plans for a 521 vw diesel with a yota trans.
  14. so the boy and i went buck wild and tossed in the engine. i have a few things to reconfigure with the mounts and the clutch fork. everything on paper worked out good, till i pit the engine in. wasn't exactly how i measured it out. but its isn't that big of a problem.
  15. not to be mistaken for Vulva-nitus!!! either one will cost you dearly!!!
  16. here are the engine mounts and brackets. my goal was to have fluid mounts on both sides but as it is. there wasn't any room for that on the drivers side. so i have to try this early 70's Mopar V8 mount to see if it will work out. the passenger side is a ford mount PN 2813.
  17. so today, i went buck wild with the tape measure and my protractor. then cut all of my pieces for the mounts. don't have the extra $ to splurge for laser cutting like i did for my Duster's engine swap. so i settled for the sawzall method. welded them up. i swear my welder has a Gremlin. it welded like crap the finally it decided to weld half decent. and the fontana wind wasn't much of a help either. so far i have everything almost ready to be bolted in.
  18. planning on a forward facing intake some day this will make things much cleaner but not any time soon
  19. i got the harness figured out for the most part. will be taking a brake to work on the jeep a little more. then back on this again soon enough.
  20. we have two rabbit diesels and i am in the process of installing the 1.9 VW diesel in my 61 Jeep. i love these diesels. you cant beat the MPG's
  21. the 1.9 is a Great engine. that is why i am putting 1.9 VW diesel in my 61 Willys jeep.
  22. It would be nice to have a grand to drop on the Saturn OD. someday maybe. today, i removed all of the steering and the column, basically tossing that sh!t and starting fresh. looking for the parts to convert this over to a Saginaw PS box. Advanced Adapters has a nice kit. its just i want no part in spending 800 clams on my steering components. i think i can piece it for less hopefully. i made my drivers motor mount bracket. not very pleased on how it turned out. my welder seemed very inconstant while welding it up. i figured out the motor mounts i need. ordered them up. 1970 Mopar rubber
