Orphan
 
I have another CR kit that I am building; I have called it the orphan as it doesn't have a home.

A long story short this was to be my race car, it is the older CR chassis so that all the go fast bits could be swapped over. Well that plan is now abandoned and I will build the car and sell it when completed. I will see what interest I get and then will decide what state to progress with engineering and registration.

I have put some work into it now as it will be going into paint in a couple of weeks. I have it booked in with Contagous Paint, the guy who painted Beejays car. It will be Guardsman blue with wimbeldon white stripes.

All components in the car are brand new, except for the steering column.

The specs:
LS3 Crate Motor
Edelbrock competition Water Pump
Custom intake
Gilmer accessory drive.
Aluminium radiator
TKO 600
Hydraulic throw out bearing.
LSD 3.45
Jag front AU independent rear.
Team 3 Halibrand replica wheels.
AVO Coilovers
Heater demister

Good luck with the project Philm, I'm sure you'll find some foster parents for her.

Just a quick question - If it's a CR how did you get that amount dish in the wheels?
Looks good, and in my humble opinion, a marked improvement on the typical CR wheel dish.

Best of luck

Philm 07-24-2011 06:09 PM

The wheels are great, Team 3 worked with me on what I wanted to maximize the front face. We even altered the spinner knock offs so they fit inside the rim.

When you look at the car the wheels work and the lack of dish is not as obvious.

Hey Phil,
Would you have some specs for what you did with the front wheels, The details would be good for those struggling with the limited offset,

thanks

Dave

Hi Philm,
ref the LS3 crate motor, how have you done the throttle body and aircleaner? Is the electronic throttle in there somewhere?

Thanks

Philm 07-25-2011 10:52 PM

Dave,
The orphan is the old chassis with the Jag front, so I am not sure what I did will help.

Jethrow,
I will keep that to myself for a while, it is a very unique set up and I am not sure it works yet.

No problem - hope it works out for you.

Are Holden motors are now made by Edelbrock?

Tenrocca 07-26-2011 06:00 AM

Phil has a ford motor without a ford part - so why not a holden made by Edelbrock? The rocker covers look really cool.

This is an awesome build in the flesh - and will be a top cobra when finished with a lot of very very nice quality touches. More like the "awesome" then the orphan :)

I must be really loosing the plot, I can see the edelbrock air filter cover, but buggered if I can see the manifold or throttle setup.
Or maybe my xray goggles have failed, and I can not see through the air cleaner, Oh well.

Gav 07-26-2011 06:26 PM

Dave you lost the plot when you first started dragging home poxy old valiants. :)

macloft 07-26-2011 07:58 PM

How big is ya screen
 
Geez Dave have a look at picture 5. Its right there.The manifold, throttle body and control clear as a Mexican summer.
What size computer screen have ya got one of those little skinny 17nch ones**).

sambo 07-26-2011 08:42 PM

He's even masked up the coil packs / injector rails! Does it have a winged keel? :D

Actually Boxy is right (first time ever I think :))

If you can make out a throttle body in pic 5 your doin well. There's not a giant penguin in there as well is there? :)

Zedn 07-27-2011 02:30 AM

Im not saying anymore. Its obvious if you have thought about doing something similar, but its Phils tale to tell.

Outwest34au 07-27-2011 02:47 AM

I'm afraid I also lack the Xray vision or imagination to see it.

Philm 07-27-2011 02:50 AM

Boys Don't look to hard, you actually can't see what is going on.

The tape is just covering injectors as the fuel rail is removed.

boxhead 07-27-2011 04:57 AM

Wooo Hoooo, this is a day of firsts.







Thats the first time a school teacher has ever told me I am right.

Gav, nothing wrong with the Vals,
I might be getting too involved though, I have been renamed Boxyopolous.
