Quest for the 9's list : TOPIC UPDATE AS OF TODAY 03/16/2020
- WELL pretty simple just needed to make a few small engine changes ,LOL .
you can see there has always been a constant direction with everything slowly moved fwd
toward building and tuning a Old School turbo motor but adding a few tricks.over time this power plant  has taken more abuse than you could
ever imagine and has been very reliable and a consistent performer ,This engine is still capable of easily putting out another
75-100 hp but for the time being i will just fine tune the state of tune im at now, making it more efficient
and Finnish Dialing-In the details .
  There is more than just having a motor than can put out some jam there needs to be a balance and the whole car needs
to work together , it just takes time.
presently the WOK is undergoing some upgrades again and will bring those up later .
 But will look at the list and think about what to bring up next.

 

.Trans inspected and new synchros and 1.00 4th gear
.Turbo repaired and upgraded with a billet inlet wheel and new exhaust housing ,header pipe fabricated
.New camshaft ,shorter duration more lift
.Engine inspected and overhauled
.k800 valve spring inspected and installed and readjusted
.EGT probes installed
.New REV6 clutch in ,tested and adjusted
.New intake fabricated
.Drysump oiling , done previously


- replace 4th gear and at same time replace all synchros and inspect trans, test new torco transaxle fluid
- go through motor and make sure its solid
- replace valve springs and reset spring pressure
- install EGT temp probes
- modify fuel system for high speed lean out
- upgrade clutch system to rev6
- repair damaged turbo and discuss options
- perform options to turbo and upgrade inlet to billet wheel and eplace exhaust housing
- fabricate new exhaust outlet pipe
- fabricate new intake manifold
- clean and simplify engine wiring and pipework
- test new ECMS ,clutch management system focus on consistent low 60 foot times.
- rewire complete car electronics
- fabricate and wire completely new data logging system
- tune new fuel curve as per new EGT data and work on aggressive but safe tune
- replace frt and rear shocks
- replace rear torsion bars
- dry sump oil system
- vacuum pump
- MFI
- reset and alter alignment specs for new speed
- finish testing new night-stick select shifter
- replace camshaft and not because I wanted to but had to
- haul ass and go fast

this list will help me go through topics and can cross a few more off now
 looks like its shock time

so what have I been doing ,drinking , smoking , social distancing and wasting the rest of my time .
 besides that moving fwd slowly real slowly but fwd at least.
yes, its really all about safety and the WOK has been pushing it for some time ,was thinking of heading to VEGAS in Oct .
but with the way things are economy wise im a bit tight .
so motor stays in car with deckled closed .want to do my winter overhaul but can't afford to do so ,
SO time to upgrade to 8.50 CERT cage . I have a 6 point need a 8 point and window net ect ect.
now 2 of my 6 points are legal and the other 4 are not ,needs to be supported on 6x6 " /36 sqin area 1/8 " plates .
I have 2 great contacts one local and one in the USA.
towed the car out for chassis inspection and got the pre-inspection list as well as bounced pictures ect off chassis inspector in USA .
stage #1 update the frt "A" piller 3x6 plates to 6X6 as well as add another 18 square inches to the "B" pillar mounts .
they were both cool in the not fully welded section and let the wires pass behind added 3x4 plate

for the 'B' pillar fabbed up some additional area boxes . played around with some tig settings for fun .
3 pieces later I more than added my total area of 36 sqin

yep more grinding of paint , real fun and clean .and some tig time and mig time and its done .
tape is covering bare metal , also added the 6x6" plate on the tunnel for the two 1.250" required "D" bars

halo fits well

passanger "A" bar is a piece of work ,
As always the plan is with the door closed roll cage is pretty much hidden ,just takes time

tig time ,practice and more practice . the tubing is 1 5/8" 0.083"wall 4130 chromoly .welds nice with ER70s-2 rod and about 85-90 amps

time of no turning back .tacked the passenger "A" bar to the Halo ,was not sure if it would come out , but it was tight but luckily it did .
added another 6 tacks and started welding about 1/2" -3/4" at at time moving around .you can see now those 'A' bars are pretty unique .

the plan is prime and paint the halo/A bar assembly then Finnish fitting the drivers "A" bar and paint it .then tack it to the Halo in the car .
I need to be able to fully weld the assemble so the top will be impossible .
so tack it and if worse cannot be removed just drop the rear halo down so I can get to the top of the Drivers "A" bar for welding .
the prop up again and weld Halo to main hoop and frt floor lower mounts .
also after test fitting will do the same with the "D" bars
