Very smart!

What was the weight saving of losing so many cables?

I might use that idea in my Celica!

I am putting all cables on a pile and will post a photo of it Friday on the scale. But i guestimate it will be close to 10 pounds.

Has been a quiet week. Just cutting wires. Run into some strange problems. But all sorted and car still runs like a champ.

Got the single turbo selected and setting it all up.

Got some offers from people who want to buy all parts in 1 buy.

Just dont know what to do with all parts. Its soo much parts. It fills up my entire space. So that would be the main reason to sell it all. Have no clue about the price.

Ok. Will go and lift the car up and show more images.

I am going for a very unconventional setup. Single rear mounted turbo (gt42). Lots of haters about this rear mounting idea. But i know it works and its great for weight and heat. No lag when setup right.

YEEEEEESSSSSSSS!

I was beating the drum about doing rear mounts a year ago here (https://mbworld.org/forums/c63-amg-w...ml#post6615863)

Nice to see someone had the ***** to do it. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

What's the goal here, to have a track car right? So the turbo will be to give you a top-end speed bump?

Can't wait to see this.

The goal was to try and beat the mid 9sec weistec car.

But with putting the gearbox in the back and making it very light its more becoming a serious track car. I am not sure its totally gonna all work out. But at least i try and do my best. And i learn a lot about this car, which is fun.

We are ALL learning here as you do this. I for one appreciate not just what you are doing, but that you are taking the time to share this experience with us. Thank you.

I like this guy Henk. He's my kind of madman.

Please stick around. We need more people like you contributing so that we don't all die of boredom after reading another stupid post about headbolts or the difference between P31 and 507. Thanks!

Just put a Live web cam in your garage. Let us watch you whenever we want. Its not creepy. Just cause I'll watch without pants doesnt make it sexual.

This guy made the thread get creepy SuperFastYo...

Also following this project. So many new info's. When I tell my friends, a bunch of automotive engineers, they go like "impossible", "crazy", "madman" and what not. But they're all asking me updates for this car. Keep us poste, Henk! Lots of luck with your project.

Thanks. I will start to document it more seriously. And write down my findings. And on how to pull the ignition and fuel out of the factory ecu and run a parallel to gain full control over them.
And of coarse all dyno runs and tests.
