This part is all about the engine that I blew up October of 2004. I will update it as soon as I have the car back together. In the meantime, you can see what I am doing by looking at the new engine pages.
- The engine as it was for the 2001 VMOA
show. This was just prior to the injection setup being installed.
- The engine with the injection fully installed. I have real air cleaners
too (see picture 7 below).
- Another shot of the injection setup.
- The polished alternator. This unit is from PowerMaster and is
rated at 140-amps.
- A view you don't often get unless you are lying under the car; a shot of
the bottom of the engine. I think it looks pretty darn good down
- The engine with the air conditioning fully installed and functional.
- The engine with the air cleaners installed.
- Oil breather tank. It's little, but it should do the job. If
it turns out that I need a larger tank I can put one in the same location.
