    Project XTV

    I started a custome buggy build about a year ago. It has been a slow process, as I am still in school. Here are some of the specs

    Engine:
    chevy 350 4 bolt mains
    bored 0.30 over
    machined crank
    low compress pistons
    double roller timing chain
    TPI intake
    T4 turbo
    custom S.S exhaust (fab by me)
    mega squirt 2 V3.0 EFI

    Trans:
    chevy turbo 350
    B&M shift kit
    B&M rebuild (by me)
    custom deep trans pan (fab by me)

    Under Drive:
    Its an old NP 241 stripped down to just the planatary gears, than I made a flange to bolt onto the NP 205.

    Transfer Case:
    Rebuilt NP 205.

    Axles:

    Custom build dana 60 front and rear, rear has a welded diff. Looking at putting and ARB in the front.
    I am going to run some 44" rubber, but I cant decide what to go with. interco TSl, pitbull rockers. It is going to be a bush only buggy.

    Got a few more pics of my build. I got some free ford F-350 rear dual piston caliper brakes, so I built them int omy rear axle. So far so good, I have to figure out my front axle angles, then I can put the inner C's back on and finish the front axle.

    Nice setup. What are the specs on the turbo and what are your projected boost levels? What guage are you using for the tubing on the manifolds?

    Plan on using Megasquirt to control your spark?

    Plan on doing my twin setup next year but keeping the propane.

    I prefer to build it and not buy it, you see it, I probably made it.

    Propane+ turbo = good possibilities. propane is very high octane

    It looks like stainless to me you could get away with thin wall stainless but I would use 1/8 wall. I used it on my turbo mani. Id use regular steel in 1/8th on a bush truck.

    Just rethinking this 1/8th might be heavy for such a long header not sure though.

    I m designing the chassis right now. looking at 110 WB 1 3/4 x .120 tube all about tig welded. i got a pic of what i want it to look like, but it is kindad complex to get all that suspension lined up.

    i m using the mega squirt to control advance/dwell. not to fire the coil directly. that way if i lose spark timing from mega squirt i will still have spark at 10 degrees spark advance which is good to make the engine run.

    the headers aer 16 guage 304 ss bought from columbia river mandrel bend. looing at about 10 psi boost. should put me near 400 Hp but gobs of torque which i will need to move this 4000lb buggy.

    Got a new set of pitbulls and some 12-bolt hummer wheels. 44" rubber is awesome.
    I also have my front axle near complete, the truee is done and steering cylinder mounted.
    The little bracket I built is for the rear of my NP205, its the mount.

    Actually I found a guy state side to respline for $75. Quite a good price, everywhere I called in Canada was charging $100+ just to set up the machine.
    Front shafts are at the heat treater right now. I have my new H! wheel centers tacked in, post some pics soon.
