    I have Integral stage 3 turbo Camshafts. They use the stock (puny) dowels. I decided to upgrade them to the dowels from a big block Chevy that I sourced from Mopac. Removed the stock dowels, had the holes machined out to the proper size, and installed the new ones.





    Stock puny dowel next to the new and beefy one.



    New dowel installed, and comparison to stock.





    The cam gear needs to be modified to accept the larger dowel.



    Had my Perrin fuel rail powdercoated, and I machined the pressure regulator mounting surface. The stock blue anodizing looked out of place against the rest of the shit in my engine bay.



    Completely stock... (lol)

    Got the cam gears modified for the thicker cam dowels, and coated.





    Both cams now modified with the big block Chevy dowel pins, all hardware cleaned and laid out. New cam seals installed.







    Engine timed and ready to rip





    Sorry for the shitty pic, but rebuilt the alternator and had the case powdercoated.



    Engine completed minus a new crank pulley. She looks shiny!

    Finally got my wiring harness completed. Words can not describe the level of planning and execution that went into this. Everything was routed, then heat-shrink wrapped and labeled. (Think Ry-Wire style.) Spent about $150 in heat shrink alone, not to mention all the wire, solder, etc. Probably have close to 100 man hours into this harness. All connectors were de-pinned and removed so that I could fit the shrink over the bare wires. Again, insane amounts of work. You kinda have to work backwards, from the end of a wire to the base, because you want your smaller heat shrink to go inside the bigger one, as you progress down the "tree."

    80% are working! Oh man that OEM AC block-off. I remember when I was looking for that I kept getting responses that it was NLA from Mazda. Where'd you get yours?

    It has been discontinued, you're right. Pulled it from a junkyard out of an SE with no A/C. I do have an extra if you're interested PM me.

    Glad most of the pics are back up, sucks because they're cached on my machine so I see them no matter what.

    No need. I made a block-off from some ABS plastic I had cut and mounted studs to hold the PS reservoir.
