The Turbo 3500 F23 swap (Page 1/48)

all of my pictures went away, photo****it decided I needed to pay them a ridiculous amount of money, I'll eventually reload them and bring this back up to speed... maybe.

the oil filter would sit right against the side of the a/c compressor, I also didn't want rubber lines where I couldn't access them for inspection. I'm not 100% where the filter will be when I'm done. The adapter's ports are 1/2" pipe thread and I can put a couple of tack welds on the 1/2" gas pipe to secure it 100% when it's set.

Nice progress. I'm going to second the oil filter plumbing redo. If you want hard lines get an adapter for 3/8" or 1/2" brake line. That stuff is HEAVY and will probably crack your filter adapter.

I'm going to make a support bracket to hold it up, it won't be free standing like that when completed. it's also the same inside diameter as the adapters, so there won't be a significant restriction to flow. it's not set in stone yet, but I probably won't go with brake line, it's too small, 1/2" brake line is 1/2" out side, 1/2" pipe is 1/2" inside.

I'm skeptical that you need a full 1/2" ID for this but you could run 5/8" Aluminum fuel line if you wanted to save weight and keep a 1/2" minimum ID.

and bookmarked

Looking good so far. I'm most interested in seeing the F23 come together with the 3500. I'm sure you know this but after you get your 3400 harmonic balance on, don't forget to gap the external 7x crank trigger to 0.050 inches. You also kind of lost me on that oil filter adapter. I know I mentioned using a 3400 AC compressor but if you want to go with the relocation, why not turn those 90 degree bends towards the driver's side of the car. There is a ton more room there (on my swap) then near the battery where your oil filter looks to be heading.

Anyway interested in seeing your build.

LOL. The only thing I didn't cheap out on with my 3400 swap was Rodney's polyurethane mounts. Of course I have to convince some skeptical people it cost me less than $500 too. It was close enough.
