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:


Well, got my thermostat today. It´s a Gates racing thermostat that they claim fit the 3sgte. NOT :bangshead:
I drilled small holes in a 82 degrees thermostat and installed for now.

Was milling the ribs on the block the only thing you had to do to get it to work with the trans and transfer case? How far did you have to mill it? Mill the ribs down flush to the block? No holes needed to be drilled and tapped on the 98+ 5sfe block?

Did you build that exhaust manifold?

Build looks great btw!

Also about your main girdle. What material is that 3/16", 1/4". What main studs and oil pan bolts are you using with it? I assume you made that yourself? Does anybody sell those? If not I can draw one up and have it laser cut but either way I'd like to run one.

it seems that the blocks from 98+ can be a little different. You have to mill or grind the ribs down completely And its important to assembly the clutch and transmission togetter when you check the clearance.
Regarding the threaded holes on the block, I had to drill and tap some holes to use the stock transfercase brackets. The bosses was already cast in the block (99 camery block) exept one I think.

The girdle was made of 1 inch thick piece of tool steel. I don´t remember what mainstuds I used exept it was ARP studs. I made the girdle myself, but I dont think you need one. I did one to prevent maincap walking, but I will aim for some serious hp numbers. I dont think you need a girdle under 700hp on these blocks. Just my 2 cents.

The exhaust manifold is a cheap chinease stainless manifold (100 bucks) with a homemade adapter. Will be making a new manifold next year.

Hope I have answered all your questions.

Allways fun to help.

What size turbo is that? I'm trying to figure out how big I can go without having to start relocating the radiator etc. Mine is a ST185 but I would think there is about the same amount or room between engine and radiator? I have a GT3582 that I just bought but I am starting to consider a 40 series.

The turbo is a GT4094R. I had to make the adapter so the turbo sitting as far to the passangerside as possible, I had to move the clutch slavecylinder about an inch or so. The radiator had to be tilted about 2 inches forward in the top.
I think you will have to move stuff around even with a GT35.

I bought the termostat on ebay, but it doesn´t fit our cars (much to big).
But if you find one that fit our cars, please let me know

Long time ago!
well, the car just needs to be tuned, will probably do that next spring.
Have been renovating my house for a while now. = no time for the alltrac.
Probably gonna make a cage for it this winter, got a pipe bender and some pipes laying around.

Congrats on the great times on teh quarter mile sleeper!
