The bottom and harder areas like the firewall I beat with a sledge hammer and air hammer


Your doing this on a lift right?
Yes - on a lift. I will for sure try this method with the air hammer. Which trans is that? the CD009 is a big bitch lol

I took the sound deadening out already, I have my carpet out to make it all easier.

Another update: I sold my engine and transmission from the BRZ! This is a big achievement for me honestly because I was worried I would sit on them for a while. They went quick, less than a month for both. $2500 for the engine, $500 for the trans.

I just ground down certain spots of my t56 and didn't have to beat anything.

With the CD009 i'd prefer to get the tunnel in order. That way if the trans ever shits the bed I can get another and not worry about modifying anything, just drop it in.

The new bottle jack I bought doesn't work sideways..... and I bought the 3 piece flat chisel set from Amazon which came yesterday and they didn't do much. I have a nice air hammer and 30gal compressor. The air hammer barely makes a tiny dent in the metal.

Currently, i'm frustrated and feeling very very defeated. The next step is to test fit the trans in the tunnel and see what's what. If I have to take a lot more out, i'll be cutting and welding in new metal. I'm done messing around.... should have done this in the first place most likely. I've spent literally the last 2 weeks manually beating this tunnel up, dropped a bottle jack on my face, all to try and save myself the "extra" work that at this point doesn't feel so extra at all...

I did however get the fuel pumps and hanger installed into the tank yesterday so here's some pics of that:

I was a lot of work to bang that tunnel in for the T56. I was pretty tired.


Did you get the optional wiring kit from radium as well?

What do you think about the plastic nuts meant to hold the terminals down?

Yes I did get the get the optional wiring kit but I haven't looked at it yet lol. Still in the box. I think the plastic nuts are the only questionable part of that kit. I think i'm going to find some stainless nuts to use and maybe use the plastic nuts on top of those just for looks.

How did you go about expanding your trans tunnel?

Did you ever make a decision about how to wire/control the fuel pumps? I replied on two other threads but never heard back.

You replied to me? Or to other people? Cause I normally respond lol.

But the answer is yes I did. I was originally going to use the oem wiring for the primary and run the secondary separately to the MoTec and control it off the intake pressure. This changed slightly when I emailed Sander at Obsidian Motorsports. He is going to help me wire both pumps directly into the MoTec ecu and have the primary controlled as normal and always on, and the secondary come on at 5psi of manifold pressure.

So far Sander has been extremely helpful and I'm very happy to have messaged him since I too was confused on how I was going to run the wiring.

If you have anymore questions please let me know.

How did you go about expanding your trans tunnel?

The wiring kit was pretty simple. Green fuel pump wire is used simply as a trigger for the relay which feeds power to the pump and the Grey wire is eliminated. Fuel pump and relay get grounded to chassis.

I bought stainless nuts but then I thought about how many times stainless hardware has done me wrong lol. I used the plastic nuts radium supplies...they are quite snug and I figured they must have had a reason for including the plastic ones.

Trans tunnel I used an air hammer and a 2.5 pound sledge hammer....t56 remember?

Ahh yes you did say that. The air hammer isn't working well for me, likely due to my 30 gal compressor maybe being too small. I may snag a small sledge and give that a shot.

I have a very strong air hammer and 200 gal of air so that’s probably a factor. I had to “float” the hammer over the area for a while to get an apreciable amount of metal movement too.

Yea, floating was the only way to get enough punch out of it to do anything. But my tank empties pretty fast and max 100psi at the regulator.
