I like the shroud, minus the apparent lack of mounts. Is that temporary?

Also, those hose barbs just behind the throttle body can be rotated with a set of pliers. Might use that fact to clean up that little area.

Otherwise very clean. With a reroute m.net would tell you your car won't run.

actually I never noticed the mounts untill now... ill have to double check when the sun is up and see how it is attached.. I know its the FM crossflow radiator

I still have some work to do as far as tucking the wires and hoses.. if I had a side shot showing under the IM you can see a lot of wires and hoses and its a mess.

thank you, I havnt posted any pics on m.net lol..

Not a very good picture, but I did my valve cover gasket yesterday and took this. It's a stock bay, I need to paint my valve cover (which in hindsight I should have done when it was off yesterday).

^I agree. I thought I struck gold, but I guess not. I might do the Seafoam treatment a few times and see if that cleans it out. Any other suggestions? I have a bad lifter too which isn't surprising.

Looks like he's running a wilwood or tilton pedal set up. You can see the tops of the resivours in the rain rail.

Don't you put seafoam in the intake for carbon build up? It won't help take out the burnt oil. That engine either hasn't had it's oil changed regularly, or it's been run regularly low. Or both.

Seafoam can also be used in the oil. From the website: "As an oil system additive, Sea Foam controls moisture, gum, varnish and residue deposits. "

No Tuck....No Turbo. Just a little "awesome" and A LOT of whine.







Don't worry about the lube.....just spit on it.

You put it in the crankcase too. Half a can in the intake, half in crankcase, and half-full can in fuel tank. I've used it before on this engine, just not in the crankcase yet. I think regularly run low is the correct answer, I've been on top of it as long as I've owned the car though.

I need to get pics of my daily with all the zip ties holding hoses away from headers, smaller hoses away from belts, hack-job bullshit, and general failure in execution.
