    Radiator work

    oh and KTM racing - buy 5 gallons get 4 1/2.....

    in my reading today, I noted that the 800 hp FI tech doesn't have timing control.... which may cause me to find another solution for it

    so glad I installed the 73 rear - if I stacked stuff on it before, it'd have rolled off... awesome

    time to upsize the inlet and outlet


    practice welds first

    and away we go

    and viola

    I know it would be complicating things, but would you need a intermediate linkage?

    for those who think it is impossible to take 4 days to install a throttle cable, I say AH HA



    only problem is the pedal doesn't travel far enough to get WOT.... sigh, day 5 coming soon

    Like a glove

    and worked on the throttle cable

    I made an executive decision.... not using this one


    mostly because if you look in the hole, you'll see the cooler tube takes 2/3rds of the tank.... so I got to looking for options and it appears a C5/C6 Z06 (7.0 liter) radiator is just what the doctor ordered.... so I ordered it anyway and didn't tell them I wasn't a doctor.....

    I'm looking forward to how that empty box performs

    empty box is good

    yeah not so much.... the list was right, just didn't have enough sub-parts

    the biggest one....

    didn't get a lot done on this today - but got started with a cooling mod



    see the problem?


    I need to close this gap up a bit, but ultimately I'll simply move the intake up and put a shade on the top so it draws first from the bottom...

    it does look good

    shuffled cars, figured I'd snap a shot of it outside


    my goal this weekend is do burnouts with it.... lots on the list, but it's doable....
