small update.. acquired a 9k tach plate :)

pistons are for the 1uz build for my truck- not using them... they didn't make them correctly. I wanted a low profile crown. I cant wait to use the full 9k in the tach though

I actually found it on facebook. some cool dude in Croatia had it for sale. been looking for one for a while. I am going to use this coupled with the standalone and a digital speedo to mate to the cd009 trans.. should be interesting

hhmm cd009.. why would I stick that behind a barra...? not sure how that would work having a 6k rev limit.. or maybe :o still have a few years to go on this project but ill post a dyno sheet when its done.. hehe :)

ahh man Northstars.. we go way back. lol. lucky me always got to work on those luckily most of them died or don't come to dealers any more.. Carroll Shelby loved that engine. soo smooth just horrid to work on. You want to make a starquest a mid engine? I don't think the northstars weight too bad. just bulky

as for fitment

nothing a cutoff wheel, grinder, tube bender and a welder cant solve ;) 31.5 inches just wont clear and I like my A/C

Finally got an update! Car is being cut up! Hopefully soon I will have pix. In roughly 2 months I will be fabbing up the engine and trans mounts as well as the turbo and intake manifolds using my donor chassis. Stay Tuned!!

Awesome. Some buddies and I are thinkin about getting a bunch of these motors shipped to the states too! They go to Australia for work twice a year and enough of us are interested so we might pull the trigger. (I would be using it on a non starion project but it definetly crossed my mind)

Post lots of pics!
