Installed a wideband in place of the busted inclinometer
Found a new buddy...
Don't pay attention to the oil pressure gauge... it lies
Fan control mostly mounted
I'll snorkle it later
Blacked out V-mount seen through the grill

I'm liking the progress. Good to see it put together finally. Two questions, what headlights are those and when does suspension work start?
1999 4Runner Limited. Its green.
Mid 90's BMW 5 series projectors and suspension work will be starting in the next couple of weeks hopefully.
Gen2 front suspension and axles with hydraulic bump stops in place of the factory kit to start out.

What radiator are you using?
This is fantastic! Makes me think about building a CSM again... =X
Any plans for wheels/tires/gearing? I'd be hesitant to bet on a 4.5 0-60 with stock gearing and oversized tires. But, it WILL be quick, and I'm sure that it will be ridiculous fun! I wish I had 1/10 of your fab skills.
...I didn't notice, what did you do for a turbo?
Lake Forest, CA
-1995 Mitsubishi Montero SR...for exploring trails and ghost towns!
(...frame swap complete, current DD...)
-1994 Volvo 850 Turbo...402hp and counting!
(...awaiting new engine install and Mojave Mile prep...)
-1966 VW Bug
(...2275cc stoplight dragster...)
The turbo is an evo8 twin scroll with twin scroll manifold.
Sorry I don't have any close ups of the modifications, but the input and output were moved and the end tanks were segmented to make the radiator multi-pass for better cooling efficiency (the red circles are the the tank segments to redirect flow)
