King kams are 264/272, just shifted open/close times kind of.
with the bc 280s, they are actually 218/216.
I went to the bc cams to shift the power curve lower, so I don't kill my trans pump.
but with 15psi, it won't make big power anyways.

in regards to the ms, I already have an ms unit with all the wiring... I just want it to start and run everyday with little tuning required.
I would feel horrible going back to a MAF system, but I don't want to spend the $ on an eprom ecu to convert to speed density.
I could get a later 2g/evo ecu and use evo/ecuflash, but then there is a bigger mess of wiring needed.
I'll let you guys know what I figure out.

Oh yeah forgot Josh told me that. In regards to SD, if you get this http://www.fullthrottlespeed.com/itemdesc.asp+ic+050SD1G+eq++Tp+

it will make converting to SD that much easier with a GM style 3 or 4 bar MAP sensor and IAT, then all you need is the sensors and tuning like link or DS-Map/Jackal as it's called now lol. I had the GVR4 running on that setup well before link came out with V3.

I'll let gabe know.

I replaced the og emblems, and added a few.
one being the front plymouth emblem, another is the Turbo electronic fuel injection emblem on the rear, and maybe a mitsu symbol on the IC.
I can remove my cas without much trouble now that I moved the brake line and then massaged the firewall a little. I used a pipe with a rag wrapped around the end, and a bfh.

I like this layout. Maybe I will get one for the IC as well.

I should mention, I bought these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/69-79-Beetle-7- ... 7f&vxp=mtr
and they do not look good.
The light is a lot worse than an OE style bulb. I'm going to toss some hid bulbs in and see if that improves anything. I sure hope so.

Got the Hid bulbs/balasts today.
They helped a ton.
I never took any pics with the bulbs that came in the housings, but I know these look a lot better just in the garage.
http://www.ilostmymind.com/upload/img_2 ... 220551.jpg
I used the housing mentioned above and this hid kit http://www.ebay.com/itm/110957394783
Low cost and makes for a pretty clean install. I am going to make brackets for mine instead of using the double sided tape that comes in the kit.

Sorry John, the garage has been a little cold.
I still need to get some of the aluminum welded. Like the intake manifold and IC.
I moved the motor/trans forward about an inch, so I need a driveshaft spacer.
I need to strip down/seperate the engine wiring harness still.
I'll get more updates soon for you guys. :lol:

i moved a couple of the aeromotive parts from the quest into the arrow.
I need to decide wheather to put the fuel pump in the engine bay, or back at the tank.
If it goes back at the tank, I need to change most the line, and run electrical to it.
In the engine bay, it's shorter wiring, and no real changes in the plumbing, but heat could be a downside...
More updates to come.

what if I changed my mind a little bit...
Image
Maybe this can be just as fun.
I slapped a hydraulic turbo cam/rockers in, and it looks like my flange will serve as an adapta-plate.
now I am strongly considering megasquirt for this with a 36-1 crank trigger wheel, still distributor, but tbi.

I figure I have a minute or two to screw around.
Bought some seats today.
93 corolla seats to be exact. I have not test fit them, but they look like they will fit in well.

So, I whipped these up.
Image
I painted them black, then installed them.

So far so good.
I'll make the second set once I get more materials.

I have to order some couplers, But I think I am going to run my ic piping this way.
My flat parts guy said he should have my 36-1 trigger wheel and mount cut before the weekend.
