CG T6 turbo build
 
So I figured I would join the party with all the turbo builds going on. The car has been down since September of 2014. Im getting ready to start the installing everything to get it back on the road again. Here is a list of what's going on.

Engine ( built and on stand)
fully forged shortblock
mhs stage 3 heads
cms stage 2.5 turbo cams
Edelbrock intake
6061 intake

Turbo kit (just haven't picked turbo out yet)
CG T6 turbo hotside
on3 cold side
turbo charger leaning towards work turbo chargers turbo
dual 40 mm wastegates

Transmission (ordered should be here in 2wks)
FB performance 4r70w with lockup and transbrake
UCC converter

Fuel
Glenn's performance sumped tank
triple walbro 392
Areomotive FP
DeatschWerks 78 lbs injectors

I wasn't going to do the transmission until this winter but FB was having a sale . There is a few other things going into build like abs delete and batery relocation. Like to hear thoughts and opinions of the building. It's supposed to be done by end of May just got to get my buddy motivated to finish it.

Thought I would add some pictures of the old turbo set up and the carnage of the stock block

This is what happens when you ask your buddy to fuel the car on the trailer while you go take a piss and he puts 87 instead of 93 in the tank. Then takes 16 months to fess up.

I am really at my buddies mercy. He has my car pulled apart to were I cant move it to another shop. I literary have over 15k in parts waiting to be installed. Its not all his fault as I have to take some of the blame.

Freddy Brown has a strange way of shipping transmissions.

Was you able to get your old fuel canisters out of the old tank?

Sonic 02 June 18th, 2016 06:06 AM

Are you asking about the evap system ? I haven't pulled it yet but I talked to Glenn yesterday and he told me to use heat gun and lots of WD 40 on it.
he told me one of the pieces is no longer produced and I need to be very careful removing it.

kyle2002stang! June 24th, 2016 06:32 PM

that evap stuff is a fucking nightmare if you break the big canister.

i really wish somebody would come up with a good aftermarket evap system/tank vent thats easily adaptable to anything.

SSG Pate June 24th, 2016 11:06 PM

I cut my EVAP out, its a pain in the ass. they don't even make the rubber gasket anymore.

D.K June 25th, 2016 07:17 AM

Good luck with your build. Looking at doing a similar CG Fab build in the very near future.

Sub'd for this. Looking good!

You have a Glenn's performance tank? Did you try any of the was Glenn recommends removing them. Just trying to find out if they work or if I'm going to be cussing.

Thanks been on vacation and my buddy just left on vacation so not much is getting done the next couple weeks

SSG Pate June 26th, 2016 09:50 PM

The best way to remove them is to cut them out and work your way in cutting it.

What did you use to cut it out. I would be worried about creating a spark. Definitely wouldn't use the plasma cutter lol.

I used a angle grinder on one tank I used C02 and the other tank was so old it didn't have any more fuel or fumes in it.

Going to try to get them out tomorrow. Going to try wd40 and heat gun and have some heavy duty tin snips as backup. Did you just reuse the old gaskets?

SSG Pate June 28th, 2016 10:12 PM

I couldn't find any new gaskets anywhere.

Sonic 02 June 29th, 2016 06:51 PM

Tackled the evap system today and it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Took about 30 min to remove both canister. There is definitely a trick to doing it. First thing is not to try this by yourself or you will break it. It took equal pressure from both sides to get it to raise up high enough until you hit the lip on the canister. When it hit the lip we couldn't get it past it and you are limited to the amount prying up you can do without breaking it. This is were the heat gun and WD40 comes in applied wd40 around the canister and rubber gasket and a little heat to the metal around canister and then applied a little pressure and it popped right out.

Here is new tank with rubber gaskets in.

Well got a little more done. Got the transmission out and mounted the pumps on the tank cover.
http://i1285.photobucket.com/albums/...pstlqfgi7c.jpg

Next on the list is the install of the the tank , fuel lines and battery relocation. I want to run track legal relocation but I'm looking for ideas of how to run the disconnect out the back of the car. I have seen a few come out though the tail light but don't want to do it that way. If anybody has any suggestions that would be appreciated.
