custom shift tower for the new sequential shifter setup.... made by Nubworks aka Justin aka "nubVR"
and putting in the rivnuts to old fashioned way. manually. no special tool needed
Man, that work is badass...... Makes me feel like a dip****! Good job
Nice!!!!!! What do you have in mind for intake? I might have something you could use
Hoping maybe next weekend we will have one........... Some cool stuff from this weekends work
90mm hemi flange, Aba plenum plates, OBD2 Vr6 with O-ring grooves, and 16v head flanges
Exhaust flanges for Toyota Tundra headers, and a 16 gauge template for gasket cutting. 304L SS
MK2/MK3 Brake Booster delete/Wilwood and Tilton manual master cylinder mounting plate. 6061 AL
Parts of a MK2/MK3 camber plate kit. 2024 AL
R36 to R32 intake manifold conversion flange. Allows use of a R32 SRI on a 3.6L head.
Coolant block off plate and flange for an FSI block. 6061 AL
R36 intake manifold flange, with transitions to allow the mating of round tubing to the square ports. Done on a 3 axis CNC. 6061 AL
3 bolt exhaust flanges. 304L SS
I don't think this qualifies as being "badass" and it certainly is not on the level of all the other excellent work in this thread, but I'm proud of it. Novice welder and my first time welding aluminum. Miller Diversion 185.
Had to modify my intake manifold to clear the compressor housing and hook up to an AWIC.
This thread is an inspiration and reminds me that I have a lot to learn.
Looks good, way to get started man👍
had to build a fuel cell. and i use whatever i have layin around. thise thing was a huge reflector for lighting at a plant i worked at and they scrapped it cuz it threw too many shadows. i kept a chunk and have been nibbling away at it.
made the basic shape to fit in the location i have to work with. fitted it all up and had my buddy nearby tack it together. then had Nubvr weld it out like always!!
test fit before final welding
fitted the pick up tubes to pull as low as i can get.
welded out and putting the parts in it.
fitted in place and working on the fuel lines.
ya got me, i am pretty sure they arent designed for lift/pull to a great extent but rather push. i have always run these like this. and they have always worked flawlessly.
i do not know what the suction rating is on the pumps, and i thought npsh was more describing an attribute of the liquid/medium and not the pump itself? but it does have some significance....
i dont let it get too low in the cell, and it has a vent which allows atmosphere into the cell so it doesnt suck in on itself.
but it is not so much designed to pull fuel at a "low fuel" situation, more to make sure it pulls from the lowest point and any errant bubbles that may be in the fuel itself from the return are not inadvertently sucked in.....
i could run without the two blue fittings and be just fine, and it will work just like it does now. this gives just a tiny bit more depth a bubble has to travel downward fighting the urge to rise to the surface before it gets sucked in.
the cell is narrower at the bottom, and space did not dictate me making a sump in the bottom for just the pumps while still holding the volume it does. i actually envisioned the dry sump reservoir next to it, but alas that is not happening so i have two other locations to play with that before moving it inside the car and to the rear. just waiting on the tank.
