  1. I am currently enjoying a turbo EFI setup but also slowly working on a high-rev ITB engine using Triumph 955i triple TB's. If I ever finish it (too many projects), I will post.
  2. That is awesome! Fabric choice in the eye of the beholder but I like it. I came from the Porsche crowd and over there tartan and herringbone interiors are popular. This is on my list of projects. Thanks for the write-up.
  3. On my turbo conversion, I used the following: Volvo 240 radiator with integral oil cooler. Not tested yet but hopefully it will do the job. I have a 10-row in case it doesn't. Ebay 7x27" IC (similar to bentos but horizontal plumbing) in front of the radiator and the top. There is very little room here if you do not want to cut up the nose. If you cut the nose and figure out a decent solution for the bracing/ hood hinges, there are more options. There is little to no room currently for a condenser. An option would be to use an air-water intercooler then stack the three heat exchangers back to front: Rad/Cond/ IC/ Fan. FAQ Member "Stuff" used a water-air and has some decent photos.
  4. Sort of. My oem adjusters are nearly 12mm across the top hex transitioning down to the 8mm hex at the bottom to hold the M5 screw. I could not figure out how to do that in Fusion so went with a straight 8mm hex hole. It should work fine but doesn't look like the oem.
  5. I had some time and designed a replacement adjuster knob for 3D printing. Not quite the same as OEM as I couldn't figure out how to do the hex transition in the top but close and it will work. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4228514
  6. I had the same thing happen last year. I was able to get a used replacement from Terry Sayther in Austin. I do not know if they ship but worth a call. https://vintagebimmers.com/
  7. The professional ITB's (TWM, Jenvey, etc) are very nice but pricey. Why not sidedraft manifolds, an adapter plate and some motorcycle throttle bodies? GSXR750 or Triumph 955's would be a good fit. Some good reading over on Pelican: http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/932541-triumph-itb-aem-infinity-project.html A quick mockup: Triumph on weber manifold.jfif
  8. Why not make the holes in the flange bigger to allow the weld-els to sit inside? This would allow a fillet rather than butt weld. I have seen this approach on headers, exhaust flanges, v-bands, etc. This may be easier to weld and not require back purge.
  9. I also ran mine from the rear of the head to the firewall and then over to the oem penetration to the cabin. Small flex bend at the gap from engine to firewall. I also highly recommend the woven split loom products. I used this one in a couple sizes from Amazon.
  10. I will post some photos tonight but I ran CuNi tubing for supply and return along the factory route. To secure, I welded little weld-nuts to the floor and then screwed clips to them. It came out pretty good although I determined that tube bending is much more difficult than it looks.
  11. Check the relay and wiring to it. It is a 6 or 7 pin box up under the dash. I had a similar issue after I put everything back together and it turned out I had that box plugged in backwards (originally they were keyed but it can be removed).
  12. Interesting idea. I think a book similar to Wayne's "101 Projects" book would be cool. Not a repository for arcane info (sorry Toby) but a collection of all the common/ popular jobs and maybe some other stuff (wiring diagrams, wheel sizes/ offset, torque values, etc).
  13. Nice work, Götesson. How about the full intake flange so I can try my hand at an ITB adapter plate?
