Love the bike!! Used to have a 92 zx7, lotsa fun.

The truck looks to be in great shape.
1. Do you have any pics of the water neck before you installed it?
2. What did u make it out of?
I really like the idea of not beating or cutting my firewall.

To make the water neck I first traced the gasket onto 1/4" steel plate drilled all my holes first then I cut out the two flanges. Then I bolted one flange to the back of the head and then I took a piece of 1" x 2" box steel about 5" long and positioned that towards the passenger side just under the turbo oil feed bolt in the back of the head. After that I took some 1 3/4" roll cage tube welded it to the other flange I made and shaped and positioned it to meet the box tube on a angle so the stock t stat housing aimed forward and welded it up. There is one stud at the rear of the head that ends up going through the box tube so I welded a spacer tube in there to keep coolant from leaking and so the box tube didn't crush when tightened to the back of the head. I also put timeserts in the flange that bolted to the t stat housing so there is no need for nuts just bolts on. I'll try and get up more pics after I get the build threa going. Jonathan your truck looks good how's your engine build going?

This thermostat setup is close to the firewall but does not hit and no need to cut or dent the firewall.

My trucks not running yet still have a lot of plumbing and wiring to do. I still need some parts, ECU, BOV, Mighty Max fuel tank with in tank pump, stock Turbo T-stat housing (mine is cracked), I'm sure there's more but those are some parts I still need. I have a 90 1g harness but I'm not sure what year ECU to get. Should I find a 1990 ECU or would a newer one be better and still work with the 1990 harness?

You could run any of the 1g ecus will work, just need to swap 2 wires at the ecu connector. 90 connectors for sensors are different than 91-94, but that's a easy fix.

And also try to find a EEPROM ecu. When you upgrade to ecmlink, it will make things cheaper. They can convert a non EEPROM ecu, but it cost a bit more money.

Thanks for the info Ryan! Are there any advantages to having a 91-94 ECU?

91-94's are more common and usually cheaper. So that's an advantage!

I'll have to dig, but I have a socketed ECU lying around I can let go for the price I paid for it.

Would come with a stock-tune.

EDIT: 1G DSM ECU, already socketed, got it from Cutlassjim back in 2K11 and never ended up using it in the intended project.
When I poped it open it had a custom tune, but I can set it back to factory easily.
Yours if you want it for $145 shipped, same as I paid.

I am watching a 90 awd turbo ecu that is socketed but it is missing the eprom chip on ebay for $50. Will it still run my engine without the chip? If not, Walt I will take you up on your offer for the ecu. Is yours a awd or fwd? I have heard that awd has no speed governor and fwd is limited at 130mph is this true? I doubt I'll be going over 100mph anytime soon but nice to know I could. Walt do you have any other parts? I also need a 1g blow off valve with pipe, 1g thermostat housing and a mighty max fuel tank with pump in tank? Let me know if you have any of these parts I will buy them. Thanks for any help guys!

It won't run without the prom.

If I have one kicking around, I'll send you a chip for nothing. ;)
Not sure if this was AWD/FWD, but the program in the prom is what would determine that.
Since I'd have to burn it back to stock, you'd get whichever you prefer.
I'll remove the limiter either way anyways.

I don't have any other DSM parts though.

Walt, I think I better take you up on your offer that way I don't have to find a chip and have it programmed. I will buy the ecu that you have. I am running a stock 1990 4g63 awd manual turbo in my Mighty max and just want to keep it mostly stock for now to keep it simple. If you can put it back to a stock tune or slightly better than stock that would be great! Whatever you think would work best for me for now. I'm in no major rush so if you are busy burn the chip when you have time. Let me know when it is ready and if you aren't too far from me I'll pay you cash and pick it up from you or I can pay you by paypal and you could just ship it to me. Thanks a lot Walt! That is one more part I can check off the list.
