Got the cradle all fully welded up and made up the suspension mounts still got the trailing arm mount to make. One for the tech guys, do you think I need any triangular gussets in any of the areas for greater strength.
First time this year I have had some spare time to actually do some work. I have built a new sub frame that now gets the axles inline and also increases the track by 3 inches per side. Just tack welded at the moment let me know your thoughts.
It takes real guts to take your baby and cut it up like that. Bravo!!! And I almost choked on my coffee when I saw that BMW V-12 going in there! Amazing! I can't wait to see the finished project. Videos, dyno number and power-to-weight ratios, please!
that looks great. i have similar plans for the bmw v12. i love the orange you picked for the motor too, looks gorgeous.
good call on the efi system, ive heard nightmares piecing together parts of the BMW engine management,either use the engine BMW electrical harness, or avoid it completely. I even heard someone changed their headlight bulbs in their 740il, and because the resistance was different in the electrical system the v12idle parameters were off and he had all sorts of gremlins in the car after that one change.
what audi trans axle are you using/what car is it from? how much length did you add to the engine compartment to create the extra room you needed? beautiful work, itll be worth every minute and penny in the end. definitely something to be proud of. im definitely subscribing to see your progress.
