    Back for some changes. Brand new CB fuel injection, with idle air control motor. ..and a bunch of other stuff.

    The forums crashed a couple of years ago, and the original build thread was lost….but we do have the old gallery of pictures.

    Going up one size on the antigravity battery. This thing is seriously light. And has 680cca

    I made a stainless mounting bracket today.

    I remember assembling this car and laughing at the thought of the next guy who would have to work on it…..it was me! Damnit!

    So complicated, so many hoses and hardware.

    The titanium exhaust is cool. Like 30 feet of welding on those bends.

    I think this machine has a stage 2 clutch for the big HP…but its hard to drive and shift. I decided to pull the engine to have a look and make the injection install easier.

    Scott put some fancy clutch in his turbo Ghia, saying it engages smoother and gets rid of the chatter at starts in traffic while still being able to handle the dragstrip.  Carbon disc or something.  Want me to get him to chime in here with what he did?

    Yes, I have been tasked with making a 300hp drag-show car drive like a new Mercedes. 🙂

    I have the Ron Lummus Rev 6 with the dual street discs. Not a simple swap but definitely worth it. New flywheel and a mod to the throw out bearing coupler is all it takes. The Ghia drives so easy and still has crazy impressive times on the drag strip. Zero slip too.

    Also try a Wix 51515R filter when you service it.

    Before you order up that one, I think Scott’s got this…the “street” Rev-6.  They claim the pedal pressure is “lighter than stock” with this setup.

    Mercedes prices. But man is it worth it. They are designed to slip and save your transmission. All of the ASA guys have gone to them and no more broken trannys! Cry once.
