**** yeah man!

If I could start again on my exterior, I would do that exact widebody. However, I already have enough into that department that I don't plan on changing it anytime soon.

Very ******* sick. I cant wait to see this thing in person!

i got my parts back from the fabricator tonn.
engine bay is all back together. looks sick, i finished the catch can too.
on its way is a greddy 52mm oil pressure gauge to go with the greddy boost,egt,oil temp, and inovative lc-1 . i still need a water temp, and autometer ES tach. i also ordered a braille 11.5lb batt

all thats left to run, is vacuum and electrical. oh and fill the fluids

Nice setup on the catch can, Ive always been a fan of those black braided lines.

I cant tell from the pics, but does the catch can drain back into the crank case? or do you just have to empty it manually every once in a while?

This car is amazing the work and time it takes to make something this nice normally cracks people. I give you respect for it and it looks amazing. I only wish I had the patience to do something like this I can't wait more than a year at most before I want my car back on the road.
