I ended up getting a fabricated one for less than half the price of either the Forge or the header tank.

So how are you guys disassembling your alternators to have them painted/powder coated? I tried taking mine apart, I got the pulley off the front but couldn't get the four Phillips head bolts off the back without detroying the heads. The alternator itself is about 20 years (one that came with the car). Would I have better luck buying a brand new one and trying to disassemble?

I used an impact driver on mine, bolts came out no problem.

I have a guy in Chicago that rebuilds alternators for a living! If you pm me what alternator you have I can see if he has a one for you. He also powder coats

I've got an FC RX7 that will hopefully be 5.0 swapped by the end of this year and it's taking up all my time and money!

I still do admire all the guys in here that daily their cars while getting so much work done on them!

I will say I think your dump tube through the hood is quite possibly the biggest fanboi mod in the scene. I just can't understand the reason to say "hey hey all Leo's in the area my car is super illegal come take a look!"

Guess what opinions are allowed, I can leave mine and he can get bent out of shape or move on, apparently you don't comprehend that.

Thanks for posting those pics. I'm about to start extending out my harness and it's good to see what spaces in the firewall you chose to keep.

Beast!

Here in Manitoba people have gotten tickets for low washer fluid. But I still rock the dump tube and straight pipe exhaust! Hahaha.

I'm sure if the cops here looked at my bay, I'd get a ticket because it was wire tucked.
