    Yeh nothing was mentioned about brakes so since van is rated to carry an extra tonne perhaps the brakes are considered satisfactory.

     

    Also to note, today I purchased a set of L67 injectors and the ALDL interface for tuning. Lookout! Lol

    0-100 at about 9 seconds.  I figure that’s pretty decent for an 1850kg van.

     

    https://youtu.be/B_dbhZvGbPY. Read the description.

     

     

     

    Injectors arrived today.  And I ordered the ALDL USB interface for tuning also.

     

     

    And started working on the dash today.

     

     

    Tomorrow is to pull drivers side header off and fix up the weld at number 6 port as it’s still tractoring.  While it’s off I’ll be checking fitment of the lukey headers I’m keeping off the other car. If they fit they’re going to become turbo manifolds.

    Ordered four 10wxv2 JL Audio subs.  Should get me into the 145dB area.

     

     

    And made progress on my dash,  and even put the radio back in.

    yeh, my old setup was poewerful enough to get my roof flexing a good inch on certain frequencies.

     

    i do very much plan to reinforce it this go round. along with filling all the unused cavities with expanda foam.

    eventually id like the whole back area to be lined with plywood essentially like a big speaker box. and if i didnt use it for other duties, id absolutely set it up as a dedicated sound rig. so the current setup will be as big as it gets, designed to be as compact, but as loud as possible.

     

    when the doors are open, and the tailgate up, it acts like a big sound projector. i love it, cancels out other’s stereos within a 30m radius !!

    My mate was telling me that some of the serious competition guys pour concrete in the boot floor to strengthen it all up.  Just insane.

    That’s definitely commitment right there.

    This is still a compromise ultimately,  as if I was dedicated to spl I’d set it up as a wall and properly seal it off,  I’d run as many 15″ as I could feasibly fit and it would be ridiculous haha

     

    Chrysler “infinity” 5″ coax and fusion  PF-FR4020 4″ coax for upper midrange duty.

     

     

    Can’t decide if I should leave that panel in black woodgrain or carpet it like the rest of the door panel will be.

    Ha thankyou,  audio has been a hobby/interest since I was about 12 when I got my first little stereo.

    Being through speakers after speakers and then music production and also reproduction, DJing and the rest,  I know what I wanna hear. Having plenty of experience playing with audio simulation software helps too. Testing, building, evaluating and rebuilding teaches a lot.

     

    I love it.

    Haven’t seen that before, so is that literally a conversion kit that attaches to a regular manual window winder?

    Just re read your whole build, coming along really well. Good work. With your speakers, can you use stainless allen bolts with washers and nyloc nuts? Would look neater than the screws in the black wood. Of course if you carpet everything it doesn’t matter.

    ...so I said "orange ya glad I didn't say banana?"........hahahaha.....hhhmmmm...pffft.....

    Yeah ended up just carpeting the whole thing. That said, I like the idea of using stainless hardware, one day I may change out because the yellow wood screws aren’t hugely attractive

     

    Thanks for checking her out,  certainly had some side steps throughout the build lol
