As with any "project", the work is never done and after our initial failures we learnt the car's weaknesses and addressed them accordingly.
First off was the cooling issue and that meant some serious modifications, including a larger double flow radiator which required some bodywork adjustment to fit and increase air flow. This was combined with a desert off road surge tank system to enhance cooling even further. And just for good measure we installed an oil cooler under the front right headlight cover.
Next up was the stock standard 944 transmission failure, easily solved with a Turbo Tranmission, again with oil cooling to keep everything running smoothly.
And thereafter, just to ensure everything lined up perfectly on the factory fittings, we modified the coupling, extending it by the appropriate amount to avoid any further destruction of the thrust converter.
Our fuel leakage issue was resolved with a new tank, aftert Rick's misadventure fitting the cool suit tank resulted in half a dozen or more unrequired vent holes in the top of the tank. We alos removed all teh factory venting from the filler tube and installed out own custom system.
After that it was plain sailing, with just small enhancements to various elements, throttle linkage which had rattled itself loose, steering wheels which we just keep breaking! And time for a new paint job combined with a front splitter!
Following the apparently dubious fuel system, the New Team decided to do things properly and opt for a fuel cell which involved cutting a suitable section for it to sit in.
This we did without removing the old fuel tank as that meant dropping the transaxle and we'd rather risk an explosion, which we managed to avoid with inch perfect cutting.
We also added a roof spoiler for shits n giggles, a hood scoop for more cooling and a revised brake fluid cylinder to enable us to fit improved valve covers to hopefully stem the oil leakage.
More to follow, undoubtedly.
