Well-Its been long road & only the last couple of days have been fun--:-\
The GLF was a a fully loaded car--Power Steering--A/C--Cruise control & now it has NONE of these--Basher (the '85 GL Hatch) got a few things he never had before------
It started on Friday after work-I R&R'd the engine-A/C & Power Steering/Front crossmember out of the '82--that took about 4.5 hrs--went home--came back the next day (Sat) at 7:30am (LOTS OF COFFEE) & R&R'd the engine & manual steering/crossmember out of the hatch & then installed the power stuff & A/C in--then checked the engine & re-installed it---this took until about 5:30 or so---then installed the manual steering/crossmember, a '84 GL wagon 8 7/8" flywheel/clutch & a .5mm overbore engine I had into the GLF--it was about 8:30pm at this point--went home & crashed:dead:--Sunday I was back at O-dark 30am (more COFFEE!)--and removed all the computer controls--set-up a basis wire harness & preped for a custom exaust system--took until 1pm or so--called it a done deal for the weekend & went home--

Now the fun stuff---
Got the exaust shop to do a dual 2" system (from head back) balance-piped at the bellhousing area, to a dual in/ dual out Flowmaster with twin tips--had to add a couple of small glas packs about 2/3's back to cut the sound a bit.
My 40MM Delorto showed up & I got a welding/machine shop to start building the intake----

Pics will be coming this weekend---hoping the manifold will be done Thur/Fri:clap:

The car performs MUCH better--& I am working on about a -20hr sleep load:grin:

First race is May 15/16 --- still have to finish the body mods---wish me luck----

40MM Delorto

Um....whats that? My guess is a huge throttle body. But an XT6 throttle body is 63MM.

40MM Delorto--think of a side-draft Weber (two 40MM throats), but the Delorto has a REAL choke & a ported vaccum source (for the Dist)---The internal size is 32MM--the throttle plates are 40MM. So, the pair is 64MM--not far from a throttle body. It's a big, honkin' carb--- It will live where the spare tire was---:burnout:

40MM Delorto

Man, I wish you lived close to me thats the carb my rotary RX(well mines a 48 but same thing really) uses, and its kind of intimidating me. you seem to have a but of experince with them so let me ask you this should I swap over to a weber dcoe,(I think thats what it is, its the side-draft weber) which I feel a bit more confident with or keep the dellotro(which I might have to rebuild and I'm going to have to re-jet)? sorry for "hijacking" your thread and you can reply either thru PM or email at justin_shahan@hotmail.com if you want too
