just for fun

A couple days ago I installed a Mazda RX7 oil cooler (FC3S), getting it prepped for 2 days of drifting in the desert on the 4th of July weekend.  Since Blacktop 20V didn’t come with oil cooler option, I had to run a Mocal thermostat adapter plate and made my own stainless steal lines to run it.

I also had to make brackets to mount it on some stock *e7* bolt locations.  First time really Tig Welding aluminum and man, my welds look like bird and goat shit but they do their job to hold and secure

I chose this locations because it fits perfectly behind the grill.  And yes, I’m going to run a grill.  The bozo style (with the oil cooler outside and crazy oil line routing) is not for me.  I like keeping it discrete and hidden.  Oil pressure is good and now I have a peace of mind when pushing my Booger non stop at a track event.

Next is this.  Its an AE86 cluster but what’s different…..

I just finished this tonight.  I found a Toyota FX16 GTS at the junkyard and quickly snatched the cluster.  I modified the tachometer to work perfectly with the AE86 cluster so I now have a Toyota factorty 9000rpm redline.

Thanks to VitriumGTS on providing me the info needed to do this.

That’s it for now.  Going to heavily attack mounting the bumpers next week.
