    need a little advice from the crowd

    My guess on the fuel tank is to allow more clearance on the intake side. The difference in caliper/rotors is that the Turbo Cobalt Brembo caliper/rotors are too big to be re-used so DF provides these in the Turbo kit where N/A donors can be reused.

    How hard it is to make a kit car?

    When I picked up my kit Lonny and Adam told me a bit about how they went about conceiving and iterating through the design. Really interesting. One thing they said that aligns with your observation was that at first they were worried about someone copying them but they soon realized if they...

    Possible build

    Ecotec 2.0 turbo engine question

    Thank you. I kind of don't remember anything there either but I was not smart enough to take any pictures with the manifold off.

    Ecotec 2.0 turbo engine question

    Just inquiring about the one hole between the knock sensors in the second picture. It may be that nothing goes here but it does feel like a threaded hole. I'll try some bolts today to see if I can figure out thread size.

    Ecotec 2.0 turbo engine question

    Sorry, you are correct. The ones I am inquiring about actually sit right above those.
