The mods are slow right now, unfortunately. Just that part of the process with where it is.

Talking with KP Racing, the transmission internally was in terrific condition. Blocker rings were the only bad part.

Upgraded to the input shaft to the Viper input shaft, had the parts sent out to be cryo'd, shot peened, and micronited.

Provisions for the Chilton pump are being done to the casing. And keeping this T56 after all. Ended up being the wisest choice after all.

Need to get the oil cooler mounting bracket in, and I will be able to install that air-air oil cooler kit finally. After something like two years of it waiting for parts to come in.....

Unfortunately, it has come to be that another year has passed without being able to enter into The Texas Mile. However, things are looking up for next year. I am hoping to be ready for the March event. We will see.

Transmission will be back the first week of Novermber. That gives me plenty of time to get a few more things done to be ready for MSR Houston, on November 30th.

One last thing. Going to be helping Lucario Runner install his new set of URD's SPEC-U equal length long tube headers this afternoon.

These pre-production*** Spec-U headers were not completely "bolt-on".

Didn't have to jack the engine on for the passenger side. Just remove the rear two head - headers studs, like we did on the driver side. Passenger side went on like a champ.

Driver side had to remove the steering linkage, like you know, but got it all properly back together.

Had to drill out the hole for the transmission - header bracket, on the header flange. Header- Ypipe flange.

As well as some of the driver side bracket had to cut out to fit properly when bolted to the header flange.

Once that was all done, it was all good. Sounds great, and Lucario Runner says it picks up easier than before with the DTLT's.

You think it was a warping issue when they took the headers off the jig, or was the hole for the transmission mount actually drilled in the wrong place?

It is actually exactly the same as how the DTLT's with the driver side mount. The header's bracket hole is offset from the hole on the bracket. Which created the crack at the collector flange, which you saw last night.

So Dremel'd out the ID of the bracket hole, so that when tightened down, it doesn't put the header in a bind. I had to do this on my 1st Gen DTLT's as well.

I forgot to mention earlier, I had to drill out one of the driver side header to Y-Pipe flange holes. They didn't line up, even when everything thing was still loose. Had to be done.

^some of that thanks to the kindness of Colin.
as for the bind really the issue is with doug thorley as these brackets line up fine on oem manifolds. The driver side was in such a bind that it both caused a small crack on the welds at the flange making a exhaust leak at the y pipe connection AND at the last cylinder as shown on the gasket.

The count down to MSR Houston, on November 30, has begun.

Trying to knock out some mods before then. One, is finally complete, minus lower supports.

The External Engine Oil Cooler.



This is the best place I could find to mount the 1/8" thick aluminum angle. Due to the height of the cooler and the thickness. There are some holes in the sub-frame which I used with 10mm bolts.




Trimmed the shield so that in case I need to rotate the sandwich plate in the future, I will have the ability.




Going to re-cut another piece of hose completely cover the sheet metal.










All together.





Need to add some thick angle to mount the bottom to the frame cross-member, and it will be all finished.
