    The Engine Bay Shave:












    The Motor:











    The Sheepey Built Turbo Setup:



















    How she sat at SEMA 2015: (yes, i know there is no radiator lol)















    Picked the car up at the body shop on Thursday Oct 29,
    Dropped the motor in Friday Oct 30,
    Drove to Perris, CA to Sheepey Built and was at the shop 11pm on Oct 31st
    Left Sheepey at next afternoon at 4pm after pulling an all nighter.
    Rolled into SEMA Monday Nov 1st.

    Was a very sped up process to get the car ready for that event, but there is still stuff to do before the car will be ready to run.

    The loose ends I need to tie up before she will run are: the Fuel system, the Brake lines, and RyWire tucked radiator and 16 an hoses all have to be installed.

    Once that is all together and tight, I will post another update!

    Hopefully i will have some numbers to share with you guys within the next few weeks!

    Thank to everyone who has been following my build over the years, i finally made it! lol

    Had a little time over the thanksgiving holiday weekend to put in a few hours.

    Ran the extended fuse box power harness thru a hidden grommet behind the passenger fender and up to the passenger air bag area. mounting the engine bay fuse box there!



    Started the extension process for the fuse box, calculated that I will need 183' of 18 gauge wire, and 39 feet of 12 gauge.
    I should get the wire soon so i can finish the harness. Going to be solder and shrinking all connections.



    Also, re-loomed and shrinked the charge harness. All plugged connections are already built into the engine wiring harness, so only connections for the charge are 8gauge from battery, for alternator and starter.



    Found a couple more pictures from the engine build.

    My builder specialized in k-series motor and heads and he added an oil mod to the head to better lubricate the cam journals.
    There is a port on the side of the head that i will run the oil feed line to.



    He tapped a custom oil feed port by the temp sensor.
    He also tapped a second port on the right side (not shown), and plugged it just in case i want to add an additional sensor.



    Lastly, a picture of the brake line tuck kit by CRSX Member EncoreDC5!! Super clean kit by the way lol

    Beautiful build! Big congratulations on making it to SEMA! Oil tap is very interesting, I've never seen that before! Surely looking forward to the rest of your build. Brake tuck looks promising! Wiring looks like hell, but good for you for tackling it!

    I appreciate you posting up and sharing with us! I will surely be keeping track of your build! What is your power goal?

    Thanks guys!

    Power goal is 600whp on this setup.
    I will probably get a more conservative street tune for now since I am still running stock trans and axles....
    I don't want to completely ruin the trans yet lol

    The wiring I'm not looking forward to finishing, but it should turn out all good in the end!!

    I do plan to have the car running and tuned by mid January!! ill be posting more updates as they come

    I like the goals and conservative tune part. Reality is, the trans can go at any time. Are you running an LSD? IIRC the DC5's didn't come with one, just the Si's? I'm with [MENTION=1]BoostedK20[/MENTION] on that one, wiring is one thing I hated doing on my car. Even the basic stuff, it's just not my forte. I'm definitely in for those upcoming updates! As for your build running my mid-Jan, do you think anything will possible limit you? I know there is always unforeseen stuff that comes up, but I'm JW.

    Hey man, I know it can be annoying but I think snapping a few pics while doing things could really help people out that want to do things but don't have the money to pay a shop. They can DIY and learn at the same time. I'm not a K-series guy but it would be cool to those in need. Maybe even those that aren't K-series related like how to do basic wiring shit. Idk, I'm just thinking it could be helpful lol. Cheers either way, don't wanna put you on the spot. I just remember when I was doing my build a lot of people PM'd me asking about how to do things or how I did things. I never took any pictures because I had a desktop computer and still use a flip phone. I could draw a better picture than my phone can take - and I can't draw for shit.

    Money is the only thing holding me back at this point to finish. I've spent..... $(a large sum of money)... just in the past 3 months to get it ready for SEMA, and i have a couple thousand left to spend, so I'm just saving my pennies to finish up by the end of the year. (tune, brake booster delete kit, fluids, misc parts, misc fittings)

    i am the type of guy that takes pictures of everything lol

    i have a lot of pictures that i have not posted yet, i always take a lot of pictures, so ill be posting more updates as the build slowly gets finished.
