Broke the hot side cherry today

The Falcon got its hot side mostly fabbed in today 

the merge plate is a t4 divided flange (for the eventual turbo) with a t3 adaptor for the hx35 that is on it now, the turbo was free and new so......

shorty headers flipped forward and 2.5 inch mild steel piping.

go ahead and let the beatings begin about whatever the big book of turbos says I did wrong , but for @200.00 bucks for the entire hot side including turbo I'll take it.

and yes I still have to fab up the waste gate.

thanks

My new ladder bars will be here Friday !
Was able to move the rear axle centerline back 2" for way more tire clearance, after the tubs are cut should be able to fit a 28 x 11 easily.

the front of the wheel well tear drop shape limits space, the rear of the well can be made as big as a cut off wheel wants to go!
Also did the trunk pan cuts for the upper coil over mount.

Got the bars assembled and set in place 

they came with a 5/8 front helm, the crossmember in the car is a 3/4 hole on the double shear.

ordered 2 new 3/4 front heim joints , want to get those in and fitted before any welding.image.jpeg

Spent the day getting the rear suspension in

after measuring  every possible angle about 20 times I felt good enough to burn in the ladder bar mounts on to the rear diff

welded painted and reassembled it really does look nice

the coil over mount I got welded and painted, but ran out ot steam at this point

Welds are UGLY, but I believe they were hot enough.

will take to a buddy's house after the car is on the road and retrace the welds with a big boy welder

the engine for busted cherry is comming along.

getting parts off of by tool box and on the engine.

mostly stock bottom end , e-cam , and what-nots,   and yes the pan  is still not fully bolted down so I can put the front cover on after it's cleaned and prepped.

compression should be 9.5 - 1 , should run good with the turbo

Looking good. ARP bolts I see but did you choose against studs? Also what size head gaskets and what heads? I was told the f cam works awesome with a turbo... what fuel setup?

I could be wrong in the end but for less than 10 lbs of boost and senseable timing there should be no need for head studs and a 200.00 set of head gaskets.

ARP head bolts should be just fine.

E cam has relatively small overlap and 110 centerline so it will not be as lazy on the bottom end of the rpm range.

more drivable set up than attempt for all out power.

fuel system is under wraps for now
