Nice , little readouts. I have tried using the Igaging on one of my headshops. It was quick to hookup but has a hiccup in reading occasionally. I threw it away and bought a anilam unit.

Nice!

I bought some Pontiac "RAM AIR IV" hood decals for my car that I'm going to strategically cut to "RAM AIR VI". It'll mean a lot more when a turbo is bolted up, but I'm going to sport it before then =D Lucky me that Pontiac stopped at "RAM AIR V" with their performance packages.

I'm going to machine these in aluminum for Hank and he is going to use them as fender badges on his Camaro. I had to alter a Z/28 emblem in a 3D model to get the scaling the same.

Here is a brass piece I made to fit in the oil gallery.
It's a little rough but ehh!

I made it so it can have an oil pressure gauge direct to it & read oil pressure while hood is open, then "T" off of it to feed my turbos separate oil filter & another to go to a oil pressure inside the car.

Setting up oil return for turbo. tired

Had to machine the -10 billet drain fitting for a little bit better angle for the oil drain.





Finding a spot in the oil pan for oil return fitting.



Fitting installed.





Here I used some chunks of billet for my intercooler mounting. crazy


Hollowed them out for lighter weight. eek

It's a very sharp badge - but I don't get it . . .

As I understand it Z28 started out as an RPO code for a 302 CI v-thingie for use in 305 CI limited SCCA events. It was so popular they began to badge cars that had the option.

Similarly Z26 is an RPO code for a late 70s early 80s 'Rally' optioned Nova . . .

Perhaps I am missing some back story here?

It's just like the Chevy Cavilier sport model, it was a Z/24, it had a 4 cylinder engine.

OK . . . I follow that . . . even though the eight in Z/28 has nothing to do with cylinder count . . .

You could not get a Z/28 6 cylinder Camaro, it was only available with an 8 cylinder.

I know that is not what it really means.Z/28 = V-8 car. crazy

Maybe I have a funny way of identifying my car having a 6 cylinder? wink

I thought it is obvious, maybe not?

As far as having a RAM AIR VI emblem, to me to is not as straight forward.
Ponchos had RAM AIR III, IV's etc, so to me that was not as apparent, maybe I look @ things differently. confused

1977 Nova Rally - RPO Z26
Model Availability
•Standard Nova hatchback - 1X17
•Standard Nova coupe - 1X27

Power Train Availability
•250 L6 1V L22
•305 V8 2V LG3
•350 V8 4V LM1

It wasn't obvious to me - but I was looking at the RPO numbers to literally . . .

The Z/28 badge did call out a car that was built counter to the 'no replacement for displacement' mentality of that time.

Your tweak to the badge is in the same spirit and will certainly get people to look under the hood . . .

The mid-80's "performance" Cavaliers were decal'd Z-24 with a four cylinder, so I think the 26 is pretty legit.




They never made a Ram Air Six or 6-cylinder for that matter either =P

**Not exactly a nevermind, but the mid-80's ones came with a 6, the mid-90's ones came with a four, so I guess not quite equal. I'm not going to apologize for not exactly knowing that =P

Randal, this would look cool cast into the front of your timing cover where the fins are located or on top of your valve cover.

I got my SPA Turbo B.O.V. flange welded to a intercooler pipe so I mounted the valve.
Thank you Douglas for the B.O.V.!



Here is the tubing bender tool I borrowed.
It is really nice & has roller wheels built in.


Here is a used one: eek
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Swagelok-MS-HTB-...=item4182e41c6a

I also made some upper intercooler mounts w/titanium bolt.

I also got an oil catch can.

BTW guys, I need to purchase some -12 (=3/4") flex hose for the catch can, anyone have a suggestion where to buy?
I am just using push on connectors.
Does not need to be stainless braided hose.
Thanks.

Nice work Hank.
You obviously have some pretty good skills to carve out those metal parts.

If you get bored, let me know. I can come up with lots of things you could build for my car.

Thanks Paul much appreciated.

I am no machinist by any means, but I do like to play with my mill & lathe when I can.

I never get bored, but I also never have enough time to work all the time on my Camaro.

Now, since my boys are a bit older now I do have a lot more free time to work on my Camaro grin

I installed the mock-up engine in the Camaro to see if everything is going to clear brackets, mounts etc.

The turbo oil return needs a different fitting, I am going to try & find a banjo fitting, it is tight between the frame & the turbos oil return fitting. Back to the drawing board. whistle

You can see the intercooler is installed, titanium bolts hold the upper tube brackets.



I cut & mocked up my breather can hoses. I ordered the wrong color, I wanted black but ordered blue by mistake. smirk



I made a heater delete plate out of .080" aluminum.



Lots of room w/the rack & pinion steering installed.





I actually got one of my boys to help for a few minutes, hey,, it's a start! grin


Turbo oil return hose hooked up.



Had to modify Toms engine cradle, my 1.75" wastegate pipe would not clear.


Now I will work on it while it is in the car & try to do more work. Then take it out, back & forth a few times.

Now would be a good time to plumb some of the rack & pinion hoses & cooler. Still need to get a hydraboost set-up.

I am still a long ways away. Money, is the biggest obstacle.
I need upper & lower control arms, spindles, discs , calipers, lines etc.

Also need to modify my gas tank for an internal BIG pump., plumb the fuel system.

Interior needs to be gone through, head liner is just hanging down.

The rear end I want to change out. 4:10 gears are not ideal for my combo. Might be good for the 1/8 mile though.

Yet , need to install the 4L85E, get a torque converter, drive shaft made, need a trans cross member . Wheels, tires.
Minor body work.
All big plans, for a man w/a small budget.

I just wish Chip Foose & Chris Jacobs could overhaul my Camaro.

That would be fine with me. I can take care of the engine department.

I just need Chip Foose to do his magic to the rest of my 69 Camaro.
I think that is his favorite model Camaro.
Detroit Speed Quadralink mini tub, carbon fiber seats, big brakes, Ford 9" 35 spline gun drilled axles. The list goes on & on. whistle
