    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    Getting warm. Definitely clocked the turbo after the photo but gonna need a 90 off the turbo for the oil return to clear the front mount. Gonna cut and modify the hood latch. Intercooler hanging a bit low so got to get more bends to see if I can get better fitment. Down pipe needs be redone because it turns to far forward so it would hit the stock cross member or I can to a traction bar to get even more space and probably make more room for the oil return line.🪛

    So will you be the first guy to run the Mossulman manifold after all these years?

    Lol naw there are a handful of people on the FB that have been running them. Some but most of them have been sitting. At least two are carbd and one is FI but has been taken off due to the chassis falling apart around it. There is a guy running one on a 2g lude but it was modified to run a external wastegate and up pipes. There's been plenty of stop start and sell offs over there since the group buy and there is a even a turbo a series/3geez group now in days. If your not part of both you'll miss something. I will say no one is pushing a boosted a series out said of Jeremy right now tho not even close to his build. But that's a race car all the other are street dd or long trem projects

    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    At least the first 4 I could find most of which have happened with in the last 3 years if not longer 3 or of 4 are still "running" the one that's not in Shane's but he's trying get his chassis right and he's been doing a lot of great work making plug and play harness opinions for the 3geez community one of which I'll probably be running in my car. S/O to him for saving my build after I got fucked no Vaseline by a og member on the original harness I had planned. None the less progress is being made not only with my build but a handful of other a builds as well

    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    Picked up some parts at the pepboys closing sell today. Swap out the 2.5in pipe for 3in. I already have a 3in vband so I'll probably weld it to the tb and the 90 off it. Then weld the straight to the 90 so it all one piece. Obviously I'll have to cut the 2.5 90 pieces near the radiator support area that go's to the IC but this fit us better then before. Not not totally sure I'm gonna leave it like but will see. I also I'll have cut the bov off the 2.5 straight and weld it to the 3in but yeah there's that. Picked up a 3in Muffler as well if I ever make it that far back with my exhaust

    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    Change my mind on the ic sooo use you imagine that I have the side ic the I ordered that was meant for a dsm. But this will cleaning things up a bit and overall fitment is way better then way. Way shorter pipe run and more space for activities.

    You read my mind, I was really thinking you could really benefit from a same side intercooler! Man, those things are expensive to buy new though.

    Yeah the one I want it $1k or more but this $140 one on ebay I post the link to should do the trick. Hell it was make for a dsm/Eagle Talon/Mitsubishi Eclipse so I should be good to 400ish hp which is more them my goal. So for under $150 my expectation is that it will fit based of the size Dimensions listed and I'm sure I'll have to cut the inlets off to put the v-bands I pick up and add 90s off the ic to make it easier to turn flex the pipes into the bay. The dimensions list as being about the width of my tucked radiator it's about 3.5in thick so I'll have to cut the bumper some to fit it and the 11in height sits in the 14.5in height area thats available. I do for see I'll have to trim some the radiator support area on the side and bottom but it's then sheet metal so it would be to hard to take a grinder to it when the time comes to do so.
