awesome progress. I was bored at work and read pages 1-4. Love to see these kinds of builds, especially that of a GVR4! Splendid job!

Quoting onesickcrx:

You got a hell of a setup but why 3 bolt rear and axels?




budget build... 3bolt rear is what it had so its what i got for now

Quoting Blown1:

Nice choice on the turbo my boy runs the same one on his 10sec DD evo maybe the DBB version though.
Out of curiosty though why didnt you mount the fuel cell under the car or at least do something like this




yeah i havn't heard anything bad about the 6262's so far. i was gonna do that and then decided i wanna drive it so kinda just mounted it in there for now. i will chop out the trunk and do it proper down the road.

Quote:

Wow. All that work to weld up a 3bolt rear once you brake a axle you fu-ked. You will never get the chunk of axle out. You would have been better off just putting in a 4bolt now.




all what work... 20 min to pull the diff and an hour to weld it up? save me the time and money of gettin a 4 bolt and gets it ready to race for now.... when it brakes i can then deal with gettin a 4 bolt.

A welded 3 bolt will probably last a hell of a lot longer than a stock open diff 3 bolt. At least the torque will be distributed evenly between them. Also, with a welded center, that should alleviate some stress on both rear axles as well.

I would be worried about high pressure drop running that much air through a dual-pass intercooler.

3bolt axles aren't going to like parking lot turning with a welded diff.

Good point. I hadn't thought of that.
If they can handle the turning, they should hold up pretty well under some torque, if everything else is equally distributed.

I did manage to snap 13 3 bolt axles before i finally got a 4bolt rear end. I beat the shit out of some 4bolts and never broke one yet.

FastJetta,

Gotta give you some props man, I'm not sure how much 4G63 experience you had but I really like the fact that you just dive right in and make it work. If it messes up, you just replace or fix it! Too many people (myself included) just overanalyze things to the point of retardedness but you just make it work. Good stuff man keep it up, and nice vid w/the viper too.

So what is the hold up on the 4 bolt rear end? They are a dime a dozen now days, do not say AWS because you can have a 4 bolt and AWS.

i just had the 3 bolt so im making it work. when it breaks i will go search for a 4 bolt. i deff could car less about the aws. this is a straight line car for sure. aws is just more weight i dont want. a lot of the 4 bolt rear ends i saw weren't all that cheap.

Ouch! What happened on the track? Did it just break or was it a miss shift? What's the plan on the new box?

I've seen that shitty slider blow up far too many times. I have NO idea why they went to that flimsy piece of shit in the later model transmissions.

In the new trans, make sure you dont have that same piece of crap 3/4 assembly.
The earlier models have a MUCH stronger slider, and do not have a record of going kaboom like yours did.

2.5 to 3" really makes a diff.


cut out a hole for the BOV






other side pipe... straightened out as well.


its a little ghetto i know but im not cool with blowing of boost pipes. so i made ridges to keep it all together.
