I can't really see it taking to long. Hope to have time to start on it in the next week.

Didn't compensate enough for the front diff. When it was on it's wheels the axle vent hose was between the diff and the drivers down pipe. Guess what I get to re-do? I wasn't really happy with that anyway, it rubs the oil pan too. Now, do I do it on my back at my shop or do I put it on the drive on hoist at work?

Stacks? Thru the hood zoomies? At least they won't smack the diff.

How much clearance are you leaving above the plastic intake and injector wiring and such?

Is that going to be enough to keep stuff from melting while racing? Going ceramic coated I'm guessing

Drivers side header is done...sort of. I am thinking about reworking the front header tube. I belive I can get approximately 3/8" more room between the tube and coil pack.
