Thanks for the compliments.

There have been some small updates since I last posted, but nothing major.

Funds were temporarily diverted late last year when I got a sweet deal on a 4Piston Racing fully ported head. Then I needed a better block to put it on, so then I found another sweet deal on a (darton sleeved) Brian crower 2.3L stroker block. Then my tuner said that my turbo was going to choke the motor, so I bought a new Gen 2 Gtx3576r, followed by 1700cc ID stainless injectors and a couple other goodies.

I'll post some pics this weekend of the trans tunnel revision and a couple other things.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Update 2/25/17

After the bodywork was done, we started back on the interior. Because I wanted door bars, and didn’t want to cut into the doors, it took some head scratching before my fabricator decided that the best option was to do some necessary revisions to the transmission tunnel. He wasn’t happy with the original one anyway, as he didn’t feel like it was a good use of space nor a good demonstration of his abilities. The revision basically used 2 smaller tubes for the driveshaft hoops. In doing so, we were able to get a tighter radius bend, which in turn allowed for a smaller diameter tunnel. After the necessary work was done, the total gain was over 2” per side.

I was able to make the drive to the shop yesterday (97 miles/direction) and get some hours on the TR6. We were able to finalize the seat positions and get the pedal box mocked up (this wasn’t as bad as anticipated ).

This isn’t as bad as it looks. The column will be moved over a little bit, maybe 1.5”?

I must be glutton for punishment, but despite my wife adding sprung weight and subsequently hurting my horsepower to weight ratio, I decided to put in a seat for her.

Pedals…….There’s not much room for a dead pedal, but there won’t be time for that… ;-)

Next up, will be the throttle pedal (which is looking like an OEM S2000 unit) and hand brake.
