That does not look like a Bat-Inc order list.

Nope, I just used a different website to organize all the parts I needed and then gave him the information. He can get anything and everything, he just doesn't have it on his site.

Its a distinct possibility after so many years sitting in front of computer displays.

I'd have bought my plumbing from Fab had I known he carried that kind of stuff :(

I hadn't a clue myself until I was chatting with him on facebook about plumbing solutions.

He can and will get you just about anything.

This is true. Can't even keep track of the times I message him about any little things I need and he never fails.

I just noticed... y u -10 drain?

EFR is tapped for 3/8" NPT and they recommend -8 in the manual. I mean, bigger is probably better, but I'm trying to decide if I want to buy a flange or not for mine.

The drain flange I bought has a -10an bung on it, so i don't need to mess with a NPT to -an adapter(potential leak)and my oil pan has a 10an bung welded to it so that is what I've always used. *shrug*

I don't think that list is 100% accurate, I changed it a bit on my final order.

I just hope I bought the correct connectors for everything, guess we'll find out Thurs/Fri when it arrives.

I don't think I'll ever comprehend how this car stays so damn clean. Seriously.

It stays clean because I don't like working on dirty things. Plus, when you clean often, it is easy. It's only when it builds up when it becomes a PITA.

Here is a small peek at the setup. Install was easy, ridiculously so. It took a bit to wrap my brain around how to align all the vband flanges correctly, not due to things being misaligned, just never worked with aligning 4 flanges before. It isn't rubbing on anything either, it clears the heater core hoses perfectly and slipped in between the transmission and firewall without effort.

Unfortunately he couldn't get the connectors to me on time, the company he drop shipped from dropped the ball, not FAB9's fault. I need to weld a foot long section onto my downpipe to meet up with my ARTech midpipe. Twas Saturday though, so no welder was available.

It really is a beautiful manifold and downpipe. Just full of oontzy quality. Exhaust manifold nuts have never been easier to torque down, and super easy to get a wrench on all of them.

I'm at my parents new house right now, so no internet yet, so I'll upload some more photos on Monday, but I got this one up.

I'm pretty sure that cleaning the transmission is a PITA even if you do it every weekend.

Power washer + steam cleaner + long hair brush for the gunned on crap and then a quick once over with the steam cleaner once a month...maybe I have just done it so often I have a system and it's easier for me?...

Maybe you're just the only one of us that actually steam cleans his car once a month.
