Did some exhaust matching, probably could of opened it up a little more but with the pressure did not want to push it.



Also cleaned out the end castings to help flow alittle.



Here is what I have so far.

Getting ready to stab it in.



I switched from a 3 rib to 6 rib and did some work on the tranny mount so it was a female dog to get in, talking with Hedrock he suggested drilling the bottom hole just to make sure there was no hang ups, did that, put alittle more tilt on it and fits like a .... well it fit good.



Some more messing around



Finally time for the fun part to go on.



Still have to figure out a home for the intercooler.

here is what I have.







Probably should of gone with 2" tubing glad I didn't go with the 3" Looks ok! Be better when finished.

Don't know, pretty sure I do but still have to hook up the LM-1 and get some engine readings. Have to break in the rings and then I can play. Here it is second start up after oil change. So far start up is pretty quick, we will see how it lasts.

Just got back from my ring break in *giggle*giggle* if I wasn't so cold I would be jumping around and patting myself on the back. One word " Strong" good goggley moogley she has some power, have a problem though, builds boost to quick Laughing love problems like that. Didn't bring it over 2900 rpms and maybe 10lbs boost, I know I said I wasn't at all but Laughing Laughing Laughing I varied the speed up and down on the throttle putting a load on it as much as possible. have some oil leaks, go figure, not concerned with them. I am happy, have some adjustments to do but I am happy Very Happy
