    Re: Red Baron

    That's the plan.
    Actually planing on starting it up soon. I'm getting anxiety attacks just thinking of it.

    Relax. It's gonna be fine.

    FYI, there is really no way to prime the 2.4 before cranking it, so my advice is to pull the plugs and let her free crank with no compression until you see oil pressure.

    Re: Red Baron

    UPDATE!!! finaly got it started. It stumbled on the first start. But shot right up on the secound try after a few tweeks. Idle is a bit quick and will look into it shortly. I need to learn all this tuning stuff which is new to me. I can't even post up a video of it,lol!
    I used one of Mike's base tune and it seemed to do the trick! Thanks Mike

    Decided to remove the power steering pump since it was defective and switch to a stratus alternator bracket at the same time. What alterrnator are you guys using? My nippondenso doesnt fit!! Seems to be 1/2" to tall.

    Re: Red Baron

    I know the 15-6 & 15 6 1/2 CS crab wheels fit on the big front r/t brakes ... barely

    so if the willwoods are any bigger than that - no, not likely

    love the build (lol even with the "wrong" motor) and I'd like to ask what size is your intercooler core?

    I've planed to do something similar but tucked more into the corner where the battery belongs

    and a panel style air filter in the stock location fed from a regular simple hoodscoop

    Re: Red Baron

    Another update, been ironing out little things. Amazing how much time it takes for little chicken sh*t! Got car running. Went around the block a few times. But still need to tweek the tune. I'm new at this and there is so much to learn. Anyhow, going for an alignement tomorrow and will see for a drive on the highway safely. Then eventualy to get a full tune at the dyno. I'm gonna be on the tunner to learn as much as i can. Here are the latest pics. Pretty much final as in set-up. Just need to wash car. But there is so much snow...and salt that its not worrh it just yet.

    Re: Red Baron

    Thanks guys. It does look good. Friday nights i sit in it nude with a beer and listen to ZZ top cassette. Lol!

    Yesterday was a big day. I went to the Dyno. I was sooo stressed. I had 40km drive on the engine before getting on the dyno. Is this a good time for an engine break-in discussion?. It went ok, but couldn't complete a full tune. The fuel drops 10 psi as soon as it gets to 4000rpm. I changed fuel filter played with the fuel tables a little and increase the pressure by a few PSI. Made it to 4500 RPM and basically the same drop. I suspect the fuel pump. I will be changing that shortly.
