    Few pics of what's been going on at the garage on the build, nothing special but just a few progress pics.
    Electric water pump is all wired and block off plate is made.
    ITB plate is waiting for the ports to get machined out.
    Painted the tranny and starter just for the hell of it and POR15 the hubs with new bearings.







    mx3, ze swap, SS autochrome headers, 2.5 inch exhaust, custom made CAI, AWR motor mounts, interprep valve springs, n/a 218 race grind colt cams, street PnP, thermal spacers.

      I read thru this whole thread and I’m excited for you. You making some good progress.
      I haven’t updated my build since about August but that’s not due to lost interest, it’s the other car projects taking turns. I made it a plan to only work on the Tracer build during summer months.

      So i was actually surprised to hear you mention Alister from interprep, guess he still likes to tinker with the KL and does he still supply valve springs?
      Also it looks you have 2 injector bungs to work with, maybe run stock for break in and have bigger top feed in the ITBs tuned later?
      on my KL build running lots of boost I’m running 12 injectors and staged injection , millyS for cruise and ls3 top feed for when over 10psi. This should get me good mpg.

        Im glad to see that some of the OGs are still on here and following along with the build.
        Allister was actually a huge help. He gave me all the details on what needs to be done to the block / crankshaft to make the Kl somewhat survive the abuse i will be putting it through. Although his knowledge of the 250 - 300whp builds seemed to be lacking so he didnt have much to say there.
        He did mention that he no longer has the old valve springs he used to sell but is going to be getting new ones made.

        That 2 injector idea is actually something i didnt think about but is a really good idea. The peices of manifold sitting on the bench in the last pic are from my failed attempt at a custom manifold but ended up helping me out with tracing out the port shapes for the ITB adapter plates.

        Keep following along with the build though as im only just getting started, once machine shop can get there ass in gear and my custom valves make it here things will come together pretty quick!
