I have done a lot and not a lot at the same time with the car. I put some new leaf springs on the car, which lowered it 3 inches. Thank goodness, it was sitting way to high. But now my shocks bottom out so I am getting new ones. Needed something more adjustable anyway. More than likely will get some vikings. Also cut the hood to fit the intake/intercooler. Looks so much better with the hood on. Also yanked the motor out. Didn't make enough power so we went with a custom cam  and some better lifters. On top of that last week I sent the turbo off to get bored and for a billet wheel. I should make a decent amount more with the new set up.

Are you going to keep that tight of a fit? any chance of contact with the hood?

Probably has the motor solid mounted. :yes:

It was on 10 lbs lol and we are completely done with the hood yet. Going to take a da to it and trim it a little more. But I am suppose to go get my motor either tomorrow night or Saturday.

I'm thinking of doing a 417 lower intake and a 6 inch cowl. It will fit then lol

I read that as 471 blower intake and was like WHAAAT?   lol

I got a lot done yesterday. Work from 8 to 3, then had to rush home to get my taxes done. My buddy David came and helped me get everything in the car. I changed the a arm bushings, bearings, new pads, got the motor and trans in, the front accessories on, radiator in, the hot side on, and most of the wiring. Waiting for my turbo to get back and to buy some new injectors. New Viking crusader rear shocks should be here this week. Hopefully I can get it on the dyno is about 2 weeks.

I got a lot done last weekend. Pretty much finished everything besides get it running. I got my turbo back and some new 210 injectors. Now my harness doesn't fit these injectors so I have been waiting for adapters for them. Should be here Monday. Also changed the rear shocks to some double adjustable Vikings and have new coil overs for the front on the way. Hopefully I can get it hooking again while also keeping it on the ground. I got everything else back on the car and ready to go. May put some stock ls1 injectors in it to start it up to see if anything is wrong. Ready to get it back going again.

In the last pics I hadn't noticed the water cooled intercooler.  I though it was still non-intercooled 'till I looked again.

When are you hoping to make some passes?
