So satisfying to just SEE this coming together, can only imagine the glee you must be feeling, even knowing the massive amount of work yet to be done.

One brick at a time, the wall gets built!

Sage.....LOL.... Thank you ! Heres a quick story for all. When I was alittle younger....in a time kinda far back at my dads house he had a bunch of trees cut down. They put all the mulch in a big pile. My dad not liking mulch so much wanted to get rid of it. So.....every day he went in the back yard and put as much as he could in a small box and took it to work to put in the dumpster. I laughed to myself as looking at the pile I thought it would take a lifetime. It didn't look like much was leaving for awhile but then the pile got smaller. And then even smaller until it was just alittle pile....and then it was gone. I believe that it was this unspoken lesson that brought me to big projects without fear. Because I can see the end, not knowing when, it usually sneaks up on ya, as I believe anyone with a eye on there project can see. We just hope to eventually get there for usually its all about the journey ... right RCR !

Thanks everyone for watching and chiming in !

After moving this thing around to clear the intercoolers , it seams like the best position is this, but the intake is blocked by the power steering pump. So.... somethings gotta give !




Took the inlet pipe down after mocking up the wastegate . Time to get it tigged

Why does the exhaust from the front bank route under the throttle body? Wouldn't it be better to go under the engine?

Thanks Steve for chiming in Mark, it was great meeting you , and checking out your swap for real !! It looks amazing , and sounds ridiculous !! Your REALLY making me think of the NEXT MOD !!!! One day we'll make a fun run together Amida, not sure why it goes that way , but there headers from ZZP for a grand prix, just happen to fit and works good with my setup. Plus there JET HOT coated and that really help contain the heat. Bob.....as always, thanks buddy. Between you and me and Neil, and Carlos, and Motoracer, and......... so many others, would be SO Cool, to get together one day and just shoot the breeze !!! Anyway, no car work this weekend for me, time to relax a bit with the family, thou my thoughts will be on the CAR !!! Have a AWESOME weekend and 4th EVERYONE !!

Bozzie... I don't know if this is intentional or not, but your project is sure looking a lot like a Koenig Competition Ferrari Testarossa.

Which is a very, very good thing if you ask me.

Keep up the good work, and have a happy and safe 4th!

As everyone can see this is NOT a kit im building. It is like how Neils88 is going about his build. This is by far not exact. Just a lot of looking at pictures and perspectives of such that bring out the build. Building parts, liking them, hating them , redoing them, putting a picture together one panel at a time. Being im building a "replica" of the Koenig 512 Evolution I have looked at these cars and there different variations for awhile. Its pretty cool to see so many different versions, sometimes there just alittle different in there lines..... as Is my build. I hope everyone is enjoying watching as I enjoy watching there's as well. Everyone is a inspiration at some point and needs one at some point as well.

Here the intermediate pipe between the intercoolers is installed. It has alittle bend to it but the couplers take that in well.
