Hi

Long time no updates.

I retired last August so I'm getting stuck back into my Oval. I've been accepted to take the car to Summernats 2025 a huge Street Machine car show, so the pressure is on.

I've been chipping away at the car but still lots to do. Its booked in for interior in late October. I've fitted a late model shift plate with a nylon bush along with a CSP shifter and while the tunnels was open I fitted seat belt anchors just to the rear of the handbrake. There was almost a tub of grease on the bottom of the chassis, so PO was trying to get rid of shift rod noises

Motor is now a reconditioned 1916 with 110 Engle and CSP Viper headers. I'm fitting EFI and a SC12 supercharger to it using a custom plenum and Mexican EFI manifolds and a Haltech ecu.

Car is going to the fabricator soon so that he can finish off the rear bag installation on the hoist and he's also making a plenum to mate the SC12 to the Mexican efi manifolds.

A friend is making custom supercharger pulleys which will use a hdt belt which is similar to a timing belt

I bought some Smiths gauges that look almost factory. My dash had already been cut for a tacho and 2 inch gauge. I've also bought a oil pressure gauge as well made by Smiths

I'm running a deadhead fuel system or non return so ran a -6 line today

I'm also using LS truck coils. Needed some longer leads as I'm running the coils behind the fan housing. I tried everywhere to buy them so Amazon came to the rescue. I have 4 spare leads as I use LS coils on my other Beetle but they were too short. These ones will be easier fit VW spark plug boots as well
