the ghia is not in da house :-)

25.12.2008, the ghia was picked by "Laitinen Motorsports" to Kangasniemi, for some wicked treatments. It will get better brakes with two bolt patterns, one is 5-130 and the other will be 5-100 for the weld magnums. The turbo-2332-engine is coming to the engine bay... I also drove the panel to the Sepankatu garage, to dry a bit, and maybe for some small tune-up. i dont know iff ill let it rest for long, because its so fun car to drive.
We were also in the countryside, and it was pretty nice with the frosted look.

old video - my ex 1915 cc turbo KG

theres also my ex-58 bug (the black one)... 1915 cc with 48 idas + supaflows, the ORIGINAL 58 gearbox (ok, i changed oil + steel brackets... 14,01 at 152 km/h, we managed to spank some of the strokers! ;-) that was a great day in kiikala!
the bug was crashed on its way to the storage. ;-) and its now M. Ranne´s bug. hope to see it back on the strip someday.

the autocraft 910`s are back at home.

some problems with the welding, but i would guess that they will be great, these are from leif nystrom racing as well the monster turbo kit, with the innovative turbo, pauter manifolds and that gas guzzler holley 750 cfm 4-barrel
valves are big titanium ones, and they are for turbo use. i "only" need some parts between the heads ;-)

ooooh aaahhhh, this looks soooo damn right!

good news, the engine loooks soo sweet, :-)
bad: we have problems with the autocraft 910 welding...

good and bad: the panel van kicks ass, but it started to be a bit slippery,
the weather is getting low + the rain & wind makes the pavement a bit of surprise. :-(
maybe its time to take it cool, and have somekind of a tune up for the van.

how many times have you...

taken your kid in a 48 years old panelvan, at 8,30 am (+10° temperature) and headed to the day-care? well JIMI is always happy to be in the van...

2332 cc cruise missile.

damn it looks sweeet, and the bracket for the carb is just great, still missing the distributor, oilfilter...plug wires and thats allmost it?

keskiviikko 22. lokakuuta 2008

turbos, pauter intakes, Karmann Ghia & lots of dreams

just a mock up. a bit big for the 2332cc, n´est pas? :-)
but it would look cool, all you need is a engine between those intakes.
(the carb & other parts is in the box waiting...) far they have to wait...

maanantai 20. lokakuuta 2008

my 2332 cc allmost there...

well still missing froim the engine: MSD Distributor, wires, oilcooler & filter
check out the water outlets through the sheet metal...
not bad. and from the KG: race-BOX, Wheels, SLICKS, CAGE, Electrics etc...allmost all the things... :-)

small things happening...slooooowly

got a MSD vw distributor from "Race Kaide", BIIIIG thanks for that. it will go to the turbo -engine with the 6BTM box,
+ i got the KG wiring Kit, from EBAY / PAUL CAPPEL, states... BIG THANKS!

THINGS are going pretty well with the 2332cc/superflow/kawell engine in KANGASNIEMI, more of that later on. :-)

maanantai 6. lokakuuta 2008


that innovative turbocharger is BIIG, huh, have to open the other boxes too...
i would guess that the tiny 2332cc won´t do much to spin this ;-)

harley news!

i took the sportster frame back to the voodoometal, and it´s time for rebuilding the bike. it has been a long road, i hope to get it inspected before summer 2009. :-)
