Droping in time









Drop the motor in yesterday...unfortunately they sent me the wrong clutch disc..the springs on the clutch touches the flywheel bolt...shipped it back today so hopefully by monday i should have a replacement...so the main time we can go ahead & finish up the front end.

Stay Tuned!

Thanks GUYS!!!

Some Updates on the progress today, having the Aeromotive fuel filter changed ...i tried fitting the turbo....with no success on that due to the Rotated Mount Up Pipe, Big Turbo & using TOP MOUNT created a clearence issue, will get new pipe tomoro & build the up pipe from scratch & modify it to how we want it to fit!

It was looking pretty good until this happened:

The specter of shoddy fabrication rears it's ugly head in yet another otherwise decent build.
