V12 From Two Toyota I6 Engines – Update 4

One of our favorite projects is back with a small update. In the photos you can see the builder re-working the shifter. It had to be moved more forward and the linkage increased after the seats were installed. You can also see the continued work on the turbo plumbing. While repairing a rear wheel bearing he noticed the mounting method/location will need to be changed. Building a completely custom vehicle such as this there are going to be plenty of setbacks. But given the builders smile in the previous update and the internet’s love for this project, I am sure it will be worth it.

    That ducting looks fantastic! I’d love to have even half this amount of fab skill.

    Also, pass on to him that he should re-think that mounting point for the rear trailing arms (the ones that go through the duct). The point where they mount to the chassis is in bending and the fastener is single-shear! Double no-no, he should at least bracket the free end to the chassis tube, that would put the mount into compression/tension and the fastener to double-shear.

    • Thanks Jonathan for the comment but I don’t really know the builder. His nephew posts the images and progress on Reddit and I have talked to him once to ask if it was alright to post the progress here.
