Good to see pics of the Bonne, again, Bill. I like the angle of the last shot with the track tires peeking out :beerchug:

Looks good Bill, when does the ic go in?

side note: No cooling fan over ride switch? or does the electric water pump cover this?

Hmm,
Rather than posting pics, you should be fixing your roof so you can come to ONBF!

J/K. Looks good, too bad I can't see it in person this year!

Bob.. you can't talk about not posting pics..lol When was the last Echo whorage?

O'Neil.. IC is soon. Need to get time to get the trans back in, then the IC. With the PCM programmed to turn them on at 180F (Tstat temp) there is no need for an override. I had a switch before I got an Intense pcm and then moved up to HP Tuners. Water pump will run whenever I have the key on. I rarely hit the track, therefore many of the things that could be done..aren't needed enough to warrant the work.

Looks good Bill. Which intercooler core did you get?

Now that you have a 2.8 pulley for that GenV, I need to get off my ass and put a 2.55/2.6 on my GenIII to keep up. :twisted:

I've got tons of pics, but most are not current. It's been feeling a little under the weather lately and hopefully it gets it's legs back under it tonight or tomorrow. Then fresh pics can be had.

The intercooler is a W-body Gen 3 that was sold to me as a Gen V. I worked out the problem with the seller and had it modified by a machinist buddy for the Gen V. The core is a monster that sticks into the LIM, total core is close to 3" thick. I have a choice of two rads to use for cooling, whichever is larger and fits good is the one. Then add the 20gpm pump and a monster tank to the mix and it should seem like ice is being dumped down the intake.

Oops..I forgot the ES endlinks and Moog centerlinks.

Let's see if I can find some pics of the various mods.

Structural aluminum oil pan with lower drain than stamped steel pan.
Image

Side benefit to the aluminum pan is never drooling oil on the subframe during an oil change ever again
Image

Intake temp sensor, $12 and works great! Very quick on the response to boost etc.
Image

Non-stained valve covers courtesy of the Fake Canadian

A build up picture of it on the stand
Image

Lit up center tail
Image

Where the fog light button belongs.
Image

SS braided fuel hoses. (have been slightly redone when new hose end arrived
Image
Image

High Flow fuel pump (look at that abilty for intake)
Image

Relocated PCM
Image

Heated seat switches
Image

Test fit
Image

Homelink
Image

Modified trans mount
Image

Sunroof switch

Ok Bill, I want one of those, if you remember and you weren't drunk at the time, you told me we would do a swap for one you had. I'll even drive all the way to Enfield to get it.

Did I say I want one of those???

Yeah, I want mine to work too (it died). I just have to find the time to take it out and work on it when Liz isn't using the car...yeah right... :roll:

Or

Get a JY center tail light and build a new one.

Either are not likely to happen any time soon.
