This is going to be a 'cool' build. Check out the charge pipes and airbox:

That looks pretty interesting.........

I wonder if FM will try to copy that and call it their own.

Pretty sure that's going to be a badass addition with that alum thermostat neck they made.
This appears to be a coolant reroute to the back of the head on top of the ports in the side of the head.

I want them to make me one of those rear necks. Looks like you can just bolt that bitch on while it's in the car.
All in favor of having Begi produce more of these say I.

I'm pretty sure if there is enough demand for them they would mass produce it.
