Well I felt ballsy today so I began work on the VMount setup. I have most of the cutting done. I touched it up a bit before I left but didn't grab any pics. Doesn't matter much either way since the edges will be lined with rubber to seal against the ducting. The plan is to make almost a cowl style setup. It will be sit on the IC and not not be a part of the hood. The back end will be an inch or inch and a half above the hood, and end just about where the hood is cut in the back... unless someone has a better idea. I 'm not expert, just guessing at this ****.
Anyways here are the pictures.
I'll start off with my new (to me) 6 speed.
So clean.. hoping to keep it about as clean as that as stuff goes back in.
Another for good measure.
Metal strip that sits in front of the radiator cut off, plastic bump stop (temp) removed.
Removed a portion of the black metal bracket that connects some of the bumper to the frame.
Turned out fairly even. If I got out my ruler it probably wouldn't be perfect, but close enough.
How the intercooler will fit.
Test Fit. Cleaned up the cuts quite a bit afterward... The picture was taken crooked also.. looks much better IRL.
