Not much to report summer is my busy time at work so I don't get as much time with this as I'd like.
I got the megasquirt mounted and wired to the dual 22 pin weatherpacks and have been inactively building the diagram for the engine side.
I was getting burned out so I have been throttling back on the project to catch back up with life stuff.. Did get another toy that has been hindering my progress

I'm thinking I am going to go with a floor mounted pedal system to keep the clutter in the engine bay down a little bit.. that and I have no idea how I'm going to set it up without a power booster.

Perhaps it's time to catch up..

The rack swap was a success for the most part I did have to cut down the tie rod adjuster sleeves.

Interesting thread. I signed up for this site when I got my first Starion and now that I'm at 3 and am doing my own 1UZFE VVT-i swap, I thought I'd check out the site again. Imagine my amusement to see another 1UZFE.

I like that you're going whole hog right out the gate with the turbo stuff.

I have a thread going over here: https://forums.somet...hreadid=3821866

The build is looking great man. I am pretty much fully finished with my rack swap on my car as well and I wanted to mention two things.

1) You asked if anyone could verify that when you swap over to a rack, do you need to support or mount the end of the steering column? Well in my view the answer is a solid yes. Without doing that you will not only get movement in your steering joints, but you also create a situation where your steering column could move around quite a bit and in an emergency situation where you are really putting force into it you could break something. I'm curious what you ended up doing, I could show you how I am fixing that issue as well.

2) When you welded your adjustment sleeve for your tie rods I noticed you didn't sleeve them. I would highly recommend that only just so you are certain you didn't create a weak point. If that weld fails it would be really bad.

1987 Flatty Starion -- Widebody Conversion -- V-Mount Setup --  JDL Tubular Manifold  --  MX-6 Intake -- MS3-Pro -- AEM FPR  --  ARP head studs -- 3" hood exit exhaust -- Hahn Racecraft 16g --  Tial F38 Wastegate -- Tial Q Bov -- Short route piping -- 5 lug & LSD conversion -- Tubular Front End -- Manual Steering Rack Conversion -- Manual Brake Conversion -- Stack Digital Dash -- AEM UEGO -- D2 coilovers -- full GNT poly bushings & mounts -- four 8" rears -- car lightened significantly...  More to come!

well hello everybody!
the car has been fully assembled for some time now. Over this last winter I cut out all the rust in the rear quarters and grafted in a front and rear widebody. Its wrapped in roaring thunder color flip from avery. lots of other little stuff done but as with all these "projects" it never ends  I'll try and get some pictures posted soon if I can find another image server because photobucket sucks.

I ended up using a bearing I mounted to a removable ring at the firewall. I had to add another join to the line and it ended up floppy..oh ya I also converted it to electric power steering using a prius column and wheel. then used an arduino to run the steering wheel buttons to output to my pioneer radio.. I left a few options for other uses but havent used them yet.

I made a multipass weld with a 45 on each side of the butt. It's plenty strong for that situation
