Thanks for the update!

When I was at your place last, I asked Drewpy "What about that expensive broken part?" after a confusing conversation, Drewpy thought I meant a gasket that you guys will wind up making... but on reviewing the thread during the move of it, I remember the specifics - the intercooler!

I know you said you were thinking of going A2A, is that still the plan or are you going to find another solution?

Looking good man. And yes, Get Drewpy Registered, so I can get his posts under his name!

Gotcha, I didn't realize that fitting the heat exchanger would be an issue.

The only thing that jumped to mind was someone who put a cooler between the body panel and the frame, and put a scoop on the body panel - though that was on a Fiero, so might not work at all in this case.

Hole in the intercooler is another issue entirely though, I agree. I know you said it was a fairly expensive part, I don't recall the cost - but take a look at this -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GMC-Typhoon-Syc ... b2&vxp=mtr

Is that what you need, and is that a fair price?

the issue is that the oil filter location is in the location for the heat exchanger, and I want to eliminate another thing that brakes. Less moving parts, that and I plan to replace the grill (webbing area) with the A2A intercooler for a interesting look 8-) :twisted:

That'll look awesome. I've seen some turbo'd 4th gen Camaros that did things like that, they look pretty mean (when done right - a few looked... 'off').

Well got the accessories mounted and the headers, I did hit a snag, the headers were built for the 1st generation body so the down pipe doesn't fit the 2nd generation. Drew-py and I have our work fabbing up a new downpipe and modding the A/C box to make the room. Wiring coming soon.

Sorry to hear about the headers! Not an easy task to find the right ones? Or just easier to modify what you have?

Getting near the home-stretch, huh?

cant get "the right ones" they never put this engine in the 2nd gen. I could get regular headers but I need the turbo ones. Just going to mod the A/C box to make the room and modify the down pipe

Time to wire.............................................
Image
de-lume the harness
Image
Remove tape, clip junctions and de-pin
Image
disassemble and organize
Image
lay back out in the corrected orientation

All terminations have been figured out, except for the DRAC connections for the speedometer. I just need to get some spare wiring harness to replace the pins I broke and for the correct color and gauge wire to extend some conductors. And I need the plug with wire that goes into the selector switch on the transmission, that seems to have been lost. :(

It's still a huge amount of progress!

Whole project has been pretty impressive. Hopefully a solution for the speedo will come to mind - or use the speedhut GPS speedometer or something along those lines.

The missing connector, I take it that's sort of a tough thing to replace?

well the speedo is just a matter of research to find the input wires for the DRAC module , the other is just a matter of getting the connector and some wires and hook it up. :mrgreen:

Okay, so it's not as crazy as it is for other swaps - that doesn't sound too bad then.

Awesome! Now how much more output is that turbo versus the stock one?

Sorry it has been a while since i posted an update on this. Not a whole lot to update, I have been a little stalled on the wiring harness. I have been working on other projects like putting a crank in a 95 S10, working on Drew-Pys Syclone and some home repairs so here are some updates. And I was held up by some jackass that had a killer deal on a ZR2 that I have been waiting on, I have now gave up on him seeing as he wont return my phone calls or texts.

Acquisition for Summer '12, left is stock right is new

I have told my wife that this truck would be running by my 40th birthday (May 14th) if I had to sell the '02 Xtreme to do it. Keep watching!!!

Your wiring harness looks pretty awesome though (for those of you wondering where pics of it are, I saw it in person when I was at Chug's last month).

I don't know if I'd have the patience to do something like that myself.

Man next year is going to be awesome.

Well boys, back to business!!! Over the past fer weeks I have been repairing the roof on our home, piss poor roofer before I bought it. And getting Bil's car going and replacing the crank in a friends S-10 and helping Drew get his Syclone back into a condition that he can finish it on his own, it has been almost 3 years since this truck has been down. Drew and I spent yesterday putting Mel's Syclone motor back in it's rightful home, all he has to do is button her up. It's been almost 2 years that his truck has been down. Seeing as the Indy purchase has been complete it is time to get back on "THE" project. NOW IT's TIME FOR ME TO WORK ON MY STUFF!!!!

So I had a ordering mishap and it took a couple of weeks to correct. I finally have all the parts in to button up the brakes and power steering. I have the headers mounted and the turbo mounted. (Pics Later). Plan for today is to get the brakes and PS buttoned and bled and to finally mount the core support fenders and hood and give her a wash!! (Pics Later) !! If time permits today I'll be looking at the harness again today to make sure I'm getting the continuity, in the harness, to get this thing to start.

Next order, after the holiday recovery, will be fuel lines and oil feed for the turbo. Then it's time to button up the harness, find a couple of gallons of ethanol free gas and charge a battery to finally give her a crank to see if she'll run. If that happens than the goal for May will have been achieved.

Alright! Glad to hear you got things finished with Mel, and the progress on Drewpy's Syclone.

Did you get a chance to see if the ECU you're using is one of the ones that are compatible with that ?

Well the day wasn't as productive as I had hoped. I got the lines done for the hydrobooster/power steering and got the brakes bled. I also finally put the prop shaft back in. Didn't get any of the front end back on, that will have to wait for another week. We are getting to close to the holidays so the next update will be after new years (if we make it passed the 21st LOL)

If only i had the mechanical knowledge to do things like this...eventually; maybe. (To be quite honest, i HATE working on cars. Don't have the patience, but with my fiero i'm learning)

I think the truck is looking great. You've obviously put the time into this project. Now if only it were a ford....
