I got my AN to NPT adapter fittings today, so i decided to make sure i'm going to be able to mount the breather can/oil separator where i want it. I need to have a little aluminum tab welded to the bottom so i can bolt it to the top of the tranny mount with an existing bolt/hole. Here's the mockup.



I've got a -10AN bulkhead fitting on the way too, so what i'm going to do is put the long side inside the intake pipe after i put a slashcut on it. I'm hoping this will help pull a little vacuum out of the separator can, and aid in relieving crankcase pressure.

So, i decided to upgrade my whole fuel line to -6 AN. I ordered the hose from Jeg's last week, and had hose ends and the adapter i needed on hand.

I didn't want cushion clamps all the way up, though. I didn't want the possibility of the line sagging to nag in the back of my mind all the time. So i took a cue from what i've seen some nascar teams do. I decided to run a "safety tube".

Here are some pics. The welding turned out like shit where i welded it to the car in front and back, but it will hold, and it's out of sight. At least in the middle i was able to just bolt it up to a factory threaded hole.

I've not yet got all the cushion clamps in place in the rear, but i got a couple done and was able to put them on factory bolt holes as well.

From the front, under passenger side.


From the back, under passenger side, fuel line crossing over to driver side.

I'm finally working on the car again and hope to have it up this summer.

I got the IC plumbing all done. I may need to utilize a couple of hump couplers, but at least i got the SSSQV IV and my Moroso oil separator/breather/catchcan all set up.
The 4" intake pipe has a long -10 an bulkhead fitting inserted, which is slash cut, to try and create a little vacuum for the oil separator, and thus the crankcase.

It looks a little different than before, because i decided i wanted to use a Moroso oil separator. I didn't like the Stef's unit, because it had NPT threads, and the Moroso has -12AN male fittings on it already. Much easier to deal with.







Next, i think i'll clean up a DSM radiator cap/water neck and put it on, then do the battery mounting and wiring.

Alarm and remote start are 90% installed now. Just need to wire the "neutral safety" wire to the parking brake, tuck the wires away more neatly, and put the dash back in. After that, i can put the carpet back in. I cleaned it a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately i did not take a "before" pic, but i can tell you it was the absolute dirtiest carpet i've ever seen in a gvr4.

Well, here's an "after" pic, at least.

Found out last night that the PO had replaced the hood. I think maybe the battery blew up at some point, because the fuse block and wiring that is associated with it, which bolts down on the battery post, has been replaced. Also, the large under hood fuse box cover is slightly distorted/melted. The hood does not have the extended area which pushes the hood pin switch down, so i need to figure out something for that, so the alarms work properly.

Once i figure out the "kill" circuit on my battery switch, mount the radiator, mount the battery box, do some welding on the exhaust (v bands) and rewire the alternator (because it's been relocated), i think all that's left is to figure out what i want to do for a transmission. I don't want to run any of the 3 stock transmissions i have lying around, because i don't think they'll hold up for very long. I don't think any of them have ever been rebuilt, and one of them has a cracked bellhousing. Some asshole worked on this car before i got it, and didn't put "the special bolt" in the back lower side of the bellhousing.

The car looks like its coming along nicely.

A lot of people just unplug and remove the hood alarm button. Mine worked fine for a couple years that I owned it, then one day just decided it would start randomly going off whenever it felt like it, so I unplugged it and problem solved.

I'm trying to use the factory hoodpin switch in conjunction with the aftermarket alarm. Much like i've done with the doors and the trunk/boot.

Got the dash and carpet put back in.



Got the battery wiring done. Just need to mount it with the box now, and hook up a "kill" circuit. I'm using a relay which will likely disconnect a ground to the main MPI relay in order to cut the ignition when the switch is turned off.

Glad everything got there okay.

Best of luck,

Someone asked me about the short-route plumbing.

This is about the shortest route i could come up with, i think.

Last few days i've spent a few minutes each evening trying to get all the aftermarket wiring put into place. I extended the wiring for the relocated alternator. I just have to get some split loom to cover it now.
I mounted the fuel and oil pressure sensors.

Also, I fabricated a new visor to house my Blitz power meter, and boost controller and mounted it. Now i just need to make a passenger side visor to match, with a lighted mirror. Should be easier than this one i just finished.
But first, I've got to get this stuff all set up and operational. I have to connect 12v +/- to the 12v-5v line drop, 5v +/- out to the AEM 100psi sensors for fuel and oil, sensor output wires to the Blitz in the visor, other wiring to the ecu for the power meter, and get power to the LED footwell lighting i've put on the driver side. (Not sure about putting a light on the pass side yet.. lots less space over there.)




The hard part isn't making the connections. That's easy. The hardest thing about doing all the wiring, is making it nice and tucked away neatly, rather than just crammed under the dash somewhere it may come slithering or falling out later. If i have to go into it later for some reason, i don't want some birdnest falling out of there where i have to decipher what goes where!

I haven't done much with this in the past 2 months, but i did spend 2.5 weeks in cambodia during this time.
I also just bought a new Velosteraptor (Hyundai Veloster), so anything requiring money is on hold. I still hope to roll it out of the garage this summer some time. I did manage to mount the transfer case the other day. Just need to fill the gearboxes, and do some little bits here and there. Vac lines, hose clamps... you know, the annoying shit that if you don't go over meticulously, will always result in some little pain in the ass leak or something.

Finally clamped down the intercooler plumbing, the rad hoses, heater hoses. Just have some vacuum lines and wiring to do, now. Oh, and i'm rebuilding the exhaust. Once i get wheels and suspension, i should be rolling it out!

I didn't like the press bent 3" exhaust the car had when i got it. So, i built another one with 3" aluminized mandrel bends from Columbia River Mandrel Bending. (mandrel-bends.com)
Awesome place to order from. I spent about $25 more than i needed to because i wanted to make sure i had enough supplies in one order. They had my order at my doorstep the next day when i got home from work! $99 for four 45's, 4ft of straight, and 2 18 degree bends. I wound up using two 18's to go under the driveshaft, and 2 45's to go from the diff to muffler. Now i just have to get it hung properly, and weld it all together properly.





I also got the front bumper put back on. It doesn't look the greatest, but i hope to someday replace it with a JDM one anyhow.



And here's one that best represents GVR4's everywhere! JSB cru hollur!
