Thanks Guys!! :D

Intercooler core showed up, yup im building my own!
This is the biggest top mount intercooler you can fit (height wise) i could of went wider but i didnt feel i needed to with the current output of the engine. Some of you might wonder why I didnt go front mount, well in ice racing, if i hit a bank of another car, it would be the first thing to get damaged.. Its nice and safe under the hood haha.

Started to mock up some tanks

Great work!
I plan to do Zinc plating from here http://www.mmplating.com/index.html for all the hardware pieces including these big washers when I do my bushings.
I'm sure there are other places that can do that as well.

Instead of using shifter extender raise the entire shifter asembly off the floor by machining 4 cylindrical spacers about 2 inches long. Shifter extender creates alot of slop. That is a common Evo Celica rally mod.

^ I agree there is more slop with the extension on. Thanks for the tip, ill have to make some spacers to raise the mount and remove the extension.

Well since I am making my own intercooler i also made an adapter for the throttle body as it was ripped and at one point someone tried to repair it with electrical tape.

And i finally finished the cage, notice how tight everything is and how the main hoop is right centered between the small window and door frame. My gf spent 2 days painting for me as i spent enough time in there welding lol

I think it looks great! Will you be running door panels? Or any interior for that matter? I like the way that looks I'd like to do something similar when I cage my car but would like to keep my interior.

thanks!

The dash will be going back in and the parts around the shifter. No door panels, the cage tubes actually go inside the doors, this helps with room inside the car and more importantly helps protect me from a side impact, should something like that ever happen.

Amazing work so far!

You should keep making those throttle body adapters, I'm sure a lot of us would like something better than the stock one as it is prone to breaking.

How are you keeping the windows up with all the window hardware removed?

I guess if there's enough interest I could make a few more, I don't mind helping people out.

lol there are no windows in the doors ;) those are just the frames I made to support the Lexan when it goes in

Nice windows. If you take the old door cards and cut off the flat part leaving just the round part on top. When that is installed back on the door it will protect hands from inner door metal.
