A couple of my favorites. Where can you buy a v6 crank trigger or a v6 belt drive distributor for a belt driven cam setup.

How do you do this stuff Mike? I've been look threw the thread again and it makes me realize I need to make things like this. I can't weld so all those intakes are out of the question

Nxcobra still has his car? I bought the rear he had in it. I think you made the plates for the rear so you can install dual calipers

Lots of planning, cad and practice. You can probably do more than you realize.

He sold it all. He might still have the motor, but he's trying to sell it also.

I just machined those plate for his c-clip eliminators.

I was completely don't with it but my instructor told me to cut a little more of the middle out to get rid of some burrs. I did a g13 (Haas) and was doing a circle (78mm) but forgot to add cutter comp (or take in consideration of the 1/2 end mill) and ruined the part :(post-225-14376087396572_thumb.jpg

Not really ruined, just not perfect.  You'll never make a perfect part.  Everything always has that little something, that if you dig deep enough or measure fine enough you'll find it.  It just has character now and you need to make up a good story about why it's there.  "Adds turbulence to the incoming air" or something.

C6 corvette cold air fab.  It had a vararam on before and that required a big hole in the plastic air dam.  I sealed that up with sheetmetal.  Now I have to figure out where to put the catch can.  This thing is 10lbs. in a 5lb. bag.

He found this Haltech filter that fits perfectly and is huge.

Mike is now pro demoted to head carpenter at the Ashley P compound. 

Hey, that pic reminds me of using my truck as a sawhorse whilst cutting a bunch of lumber at night.  I saw a spark and figured I'd touched the bedside.  Yup, cut about 2" into it!   Beater truck FTW.
