Thats amazing, the white one with the low mount tubular manifold?

There can only be a very small handfull of 600+hp BPs, surely?

As much flak as Nitrodann catches on this forum (most of which is deserved), you can't deny the guy does beautiful fab work.

Props sir...erm, I mean mate. Props mate!

I have still never seen a 816.8 at 28.5psi dyno sheet but only a 616.8 dyno sheet at 27.5psi. And I will call bullshit from the rooftops that he picked up 200hp at the same rpm by adding 1psi.

And I've met the owner. He's a nice guy but he knows "Jacques Merde" about his cars. He pays a shop to do whatever and call him when it's done. That's fine, but I'd rather give props to the guy that built it.

I assume that it involves one or both of these master-cylinder reservoirs:

Not quite to point of "fabrication" yet, but It's getting close.

Hey, I was looking at your post of the fabrication threads and I see where you created a custom dash cluster for a first gen s10 and the ebrake adapter for the disk brake swaps. Is there I way that I could buy one of each from you within the next few weeks? This is a very serious inquiry and I am really looking forward to hearing from you. On the dash cluster, I would like a different material from diamond plate.

Thanks in advance for your help and response

i have ebrake adapters for sale. pm me on s10forum since this is your 1rst post om mt.net, and you might not make it to 10. can you please edit you quote and get rid of all the pics.

Here's something simple I made that may be useful round here.





I cut the original fuel rail mounts off and made these two brackets to allow me to use the smaller but cheaper WRX 420cc injectors. Got a full set for 20 rather than 100 for RX8 yellows and the brackets were just scrap aluminium. I'm still using the plastic isolators too.

Cheers
