Injectors bungs not welded, but here you can see the steep angle they are going to be welded at.
I borrowed my friends tool to machine my fuel rail. 1" shank it cuts the correct size for a tap & cuts a groove for the o-ring.
Nice guy & nice shop he has along w/his parts.

Hank, is that a -8 fuel rail?

No, it's a -10.
I don't need it that big, but I like the beefy look. \:D

Haven't forgotten about it Hank, just trying to meet some deadlines for finishing (3) different intake manifold casting patterns I am developing for these inlines engines before I get side tracked and loose focus on these goals I have set. I'll get you fixed up.

I think there is a good market for a 2 bbl. intake for the 194-230 guys. You seem to never hear much from them, and many of them want the same upgrades as the 250-292 group in an intake, but not necessarily all the way to a 4 bbl. I am going to do other engine groups as well like a GMC 4 bbl intake and a couple for the Straight 8 Buick guys. I also have a couple of other ideas for the 194-292 engine family im kicking around too.

Since I will be using a small turbo initially for my siamesed port old engine combo, I want to get the most airflow possible delivered to the turbos inlet.
The purple velosity stack bolts onto the 4" turbos inlet, then I will use 6" ducting w/a remote mounted K&N w/a 6" opening.

how restrictive is that K&N bag? or does it have a bunch of holes on the other side. Its gonna be a long ride for the unlucky air that gets sucked into that intake-heck, it you got to have it--work it for all its worth.

This is how the velosity stack used to look like before.I installed a 6" flange onto it.

So here is one I had.

Did some work on the inlet to the tubo.

I blended the inlet on the turbo itself so there is a smoother transition from the 6" velocity stacks inlet to the turbos 4" inlet.

Also, trying to make mock-up brackets for my aftermarket power steering pump.

Still have not finished my billet water pump pulley.

My -10 Fuel rail is about done.
Here are some pics.

Looks good Hank. You build big strong stuff to last and you just keep plugging along. It'll be a screamer soon.

Hank,

Maybe it's just the angle that the photo is taken from, but the yop of your power steering pump looks fairly high.
Is it lower than the top of your valve cover?

It is about the same level.

The brackets(which are scrape sheets of aluminum) are in the mock up stage, nothing is in it's permanent position.

The inlet ducting to the turbo is 6", so it's going to be tight, also need to run 3" intercooler plumbing around someway of the 6" inlet ducting.
Here are some pics of my supercharger set-up I ran, it's pretty high up also.
It fit under the stock flat hood on my Camaro.

I tried out how the aftermarket PS pump & pulleys will fit or not fit under the hood.

Pump fits easily, actually it could go up a couple inches even & clear a stock flat Camaro hood.

I added a serpentine belt tensioner for ease of maintenance.

I would have like to have the belt tensioner in a lower location, but not too much room in the lower areas.
Looks a little hokie, but o-well.

The brackets are still just mock up ones.

Found out I do not have enough room to fit the 6" velosity stack,upper control arm is in the way I will try & locate it closer to my 6" K&N filter I hope.

Please excuse my car, it is filthy & pretty damm ugly.
It's been sitting for 11 + years

Working on my custom cold air intake set-up.
Here are a few pics.
Since I did not have enough room for the velocity stack attached to the turbo, I moved it futher upstream & attached a bracket to the fender well. Still not complete, need to install a couple nutplates to the aluminum piece welded to the velocity stack.

Man if you can close the hood on all of that you will have done something. You should put little sticky arrows pointing in the direction of air flow. With that big Intake on it'll be tight. Good work.

Thanks.

The stock flat hood closes & it all fits so far.

Maybe put some danger zone decals on the intake system like they have near a turbine engine inlet.

Not sure you guys are familiar with Camaro inner fender well support brackets & bumper brackets?

I made these carbon fiber brackets to save some weight.

Here are painted carbon fiber pieces.








Raw carbon before paint.

Looks great Hank!
Did you use that power steering pump for a specific reason (more room, less drag), or just because it was available.

Since my project is similar to yours, I am paying attention to some of the things you are doing.

Thank you.

I bought that pump because it's smaller, lighter (than stock) & I am switching over to serpentine belt system.

Right now I am making the bracket assy's, not much done so far, I am machineing a billet 1.250" plate. Hope it turns out OK. \:D

I will be installing hydroboost brake system at some point. http://www.ebay.com/itm/All-New-Complete...3ce7bc6&vxp=mtr

I have lots of plans for my first gen Camaro, just not much $$$

B.T.W., lets see some pics of your ride/project.

Here is the power steering pump bracket I am starting to machine.
I am no machinist, but I do enjoy machining/making parts.

I do see that my cutter is chattering. I might use my works mill (more beefy) for the final passes.
The aluminum plate is beefy, 1.250" thick.

No pictures yet, car is still on the hoist in the garage and the engine is at the machine shop.
Pistons are due in this week, and I ordered a few goodies from Tom Lowe and they should be en route soon.
I will be borrowing a bare block and head from the machine shop to do some test fitting.
I will take some pics next time I'm at the machine shop and post those up.
Lots more work than I expected, but looking forward to it.
Funny how the budget can take a real beating though isn't it?

Thanks Beater,
it does take time.

One thing I got going for me is an engine in the car & a mock up engine on a stand. Sorta speeds up the process a bit.

Sorry for the other BS going on here on the BB, I have a stalker looking @ all my posts. \:D

As long as you can make progress on your project like this who cares about the outside crap. Billet is cool when you make it yourself!
