Father and Son 510 Builds

Postby andrew.lori » 19 Nov 2010 13:18

Finally going to start a thread on the 2 510's underway in my Garage.

Sons car "Orange" bought on Ebay from Florida will be a KA24DE Swap .

Dad's car "Cactus Green" from California came to me via Halifax Nova Scotia it will be an SR20DET conversion.

I will add updates over the next few days to get caught up to current status.

"they will be on the road summer 2011" :)

Cool to see the family involved. I was in the garage last night after the turkey bird dinner and many drinks with my dad and brother, laughing, goofing off, and having a blast while we tested the hood clearance on the new motor in my 510. Good times. You'll always remember those times with your son and he'll never forget it.

Very nicely done on the rings, no warpage on those.

That’s exactly why we went thick ( No Warpage ). it also allows me wiggle room in height by adding 3/8ths of an inch because you can only shorten the Internal pump mechanism so much. We weld tonight :)

Love those isolators, do you think you need one on the top mount? Maybe a small one.
