Will run direct fire ignition with Ls2 truck coils. The aluminium bracket I think I will powdercoat black and the coil "wraps" will be red.

The valvecover will be coated shrinkle red.

Thanks,
There are som stuff to be made before I can fire it up. Build the evac system, finish the oiling system,wire the coils, sparkplugwires, etc. etc.
I had plans on building a better exhaust manifold, but I will do that next winter instead.

Hopefully I will have her running soon.

Did your 5S block have mounting points for the mid transfer case mounting?

Mine does not, so im wondering what to do about it...

I ended up with grinding even more of the block than this picture shows.

I don´t remember, but I think that as for the middle bracket, It was just one hole missing.

Can´t remeber, but I think my block had the holes already (inside your green lines)

Ahh yeah, i did see that photo but didnt notice the mid gbox mount hole just above the chuck.
Damn, i wonder why mine doesnt have any, might have to look into having them welded on :(

My block is a 99` camry, and it had almost every holes I needed for brackets.
I would not recomend you to weld the block, as it will most likely crack when you put some force and vibration on it. DO NOT WELD!
It´s much better to make a custom bracket and use some existing holes or drill/tapp holes at a suitiable location.

As for the grinding, 1 grind like hell! 2 Test fit the block to transmission, 3 grind like hell, 4 test fit. Tip, test fit with out the clutch at first, then test fit with the clutch just in case.
I thought I was home free but when I had my block coated, and assambled the tranni and block with the twin disc clutch, it would not fit.

The problem is, as you can see, there is nothing around that area of the block at all i can bolt to :(

I also really need to have this done. A port added for proper oil cooler flow.
There is no other way to get a decent coolant flow through the cooler. The Gen2/5S way of doing it is no where near as effective as the gen3.

Ugh... a 5S crank in a Caldina block would have been so much easier :(

Thanks!
A video will come, just have to order a new low temp thermostat (77C) from the US.
Discovered that my thermostat (82C) had really poor flow and didn open as much as I want (poor circulation).
I also need to fix a very small oil leak at the turbo inlet flange.
So, you have to wait a couple of weeks :wink:
