MORE PICS...56K?...hahahah

MORE PICS A FEW POSTS DOWN!!

i had some time today so i started takin out the y7 mani and puttin in the z6

I also put in my new oil restrictor to hopefully solve my oil leak on the exhaust side of the turbo.

here are some pics:



^oil restrictor



^the z6 mani first in without fuel rail, tb, and hoses



^ z6 mani almost done, most hoses connected, tb on with new gasket.

i still need to buy an fpr for the z6 fuel rail, and i have to cut my charge pipes to fit the z6 now and not the y7. i tested it today, i might have to do a little welding as well but we'll see.

so i am still workin on swappin out my y7 mani for the z6.

my question is could i drill a hole through the bolt thingy (for lack of a better term) in the z6 fuel rail?

pics will explain better:



^Y7 fuel rail




^Z6 fuel rail.

because if i just bolt on the stock bolt gas need to be able to flow into the side of the "bolt" but on the z6 the hole is on the top of the bolt. or would it be easier to go to the junkyard and get the right bolt and hose that goes to the fuel filter?

thanx

yea i was thinkin about that and didnt know if people had done it. does the z6 rail out-flow the y7 at all? or is it the same. if its the same i may just do that.

yea im sure i could, but if the z6 out flows the y7 at all i will just do that, because i can prob get a fuel line from the junkyard for free. (as long as i can fit it in my pocket or tool box.)

Cutting charge pipes to fit the z6 mani:



^ here is the charge pipe out with the dremel (took forever to cut with that little dremel but it was the best thing i had to uses)



^ in the act of cutting it



^ a little bit too long (better to cut it too long than too short) and its also high so i had to get the 90 degree bend to the left and shorten that one.



^ end result!

so the only thing left i need to do (i hope the only thing that is) is buy a z6 fuel line, and wait untill i get my z6 fpr, and install that real quick, and i still have to extend most of the sensors on the intake mani and throttle body. but its raining today so i wont be able to do much of anything today.
