So......... it seems I've forgotten to mention this, but I Have acquired a Turbo for this project. In light of this I have decided to upgrade my trans and sold the type 1 IRS box. Now I'm on the lookout for a Porsche trans. If you know of anything, let me know please! Also, since I'm looking for said trans, I've also decided to use the aluminum arms I originally bought for this project and move the IRS pivot brackets inboard. This will require cutting out out the framehorns and 'hoop' I put in and fabbing a front and rear mount for the drivetrain. No biggie, its just metal right?

Your bus will be a sweet ride. You might want to consider this kit:

In England these guys have gained a lot of respect.

Holy **** that's awesome! However It probably wouldn't work on my bus as I raised the steering box...... and at £790, that's pretty pricey for steering. If anything I'll ditch the beam and go with a Porsche set up....

Try to find a combo gauge with oil temp, that would make cluster even more awesome!

That's what a friend suggested. I need to find a matching boost gauge to add in the top center too.

cool project - did you consider going the IRS framehorn route? 2 birds with one stone then?

Originally yes. However, since I decided it'd be cooler to use the aluminum arms I have, I had to move the pivots inboard by 1.5" and that meant removing the framehorns entirely.
