    Nice work John. Should free up a lot of space up front. I like the cutoff switch too.

    Did some plumbing yesterday....not shown in the picture is where I cut off the wastegate tubing stub, patched the original hole and moved it to the other side to get it away from the A/C compressor. I did all of that after this picture was taken.

    Hello John, I am a new member and enjoy your camaro updates. I have a 73 RS that I am restoring/restomoding. Saw the Funderburk engine sticker and realized it was Nathan's shop. Good luck with the project, need any help, let me know. I'm in Rustburg.

    Hi Todd...yup Nathan and I traded some machine work when I rebuilt this TPI motor and he ended up with a 383 and a 454 that I had at home. I need to check in on Nathan, I haven't heard from him in a while.

    Yeah Nathan is a good guy. Just added a Holley Terminator EFI with Dominator ECU to my 73'. Working out all the bugs. Learned a valuable lesson, never replace your factory wiring harness and add EFI at the same time!

    Wow, how did I miss all this stuff?!

    I had no idea you were playing with a turbo. Pretty sweet upgrade.

    Damn I need to get mine done...

    I just noticed the pictured of the turbo installed. Nice job getting to fit in there, you did a really nice job on the plumbing. I remember plumbing my set up was a nightmare and took a lot of creative thinking to get everything tucked in there and in a good spot.

    My serpentine pully system is going to take more thinking. I removed the air pump, now I need to figure out a new routing.
