we go again, back to the Lola. We are allowed to have 14
inch rubber in Grand-Am so we will have to widen the rear
body to accommodate.
the BBS wheels installed we check for clearance (axle, brake,
inner fender, and room for the turbo pipe).
the 3.0L engine installed we now have to make plenums and
change air tubes to fit the space that we have with out
altering the body too much.
headers are now made.
turbos are fit to the new headers.
intercooler is installed and set level to the chassis. The
air will be picked up from the snorkel under the roll bar.
the turbo is fit, we fabricate the charge air tube from
the turbo to the intercooler.
headers, turbos, and all of the plumbing are totally different
from the left to the right side.
intercooler and the plenums have the charge air tubes installed.
check out the purple wiggins clamps (o ring sealed). These
special clamps eliminate the use of the more traditional
hose clamps. They are quite pricey too.
throttle linkage looks familiar, its from a 993 RSR.
engine is plumbed and detailed. It will now be extracted
to be sent to the dyno for mapping.
next update will be on the body work modifications for the
large tires and also the fabrication of a new shifting shaft
which will eliminate cable shifting.
