Sweet project....looks like something I would want to do when I retire. Make sure you don't leave any beer bottles in weird places.

Awesome skills, and awesome buildup. Dont want to be nit-picky but shouldn't you have welded the front support beams on before cutting the radiator support in half... you might have to get the frame aligned now that you did do it that way.

Nope, took measurements pre and post... identical. That area of the frame just wasnt under enough stress with the motor being suspended and everything up on jackstands.

Just got home... I'll post more pictures tomorrow morning.

Man that's kick ***. Are you going to paint/coat the intake mani at all? It's badass but it would look good in black or polished(who the **** has time).

It's all looking sick though. I want to see how you attach the IC and IM though. **** on you for no DP pictures.

Yah, using steel AN stuff for it. Can have it made up at a farm supply shop. Measure... tell him fittings and boom SS lines for cheap.

Looks like there's plenty of room for a/c parts! Very crafty!
