What makes the 6al and 7al different?

damn that's like a freaking show car engine bay!!! very very nice! i like the painted strut brace's.


also note the car is much tidyer than most of our's.

Lose the crescent shaped metal pieces on the strut mounts. They look tacky, and I really don't think you need them with a strut tower brace. I still see a lot of people keep them on, though, and I don't know why.

I'd rather clean those up every few months from the washers nicking them up than repainting the strut brace.

7al2 has a much hotter spark output than my 6al. My 6al would consistently misfire above 5500 w/ the exact same mixtures that my new 7al is lighting off w/out issue.

I am looking to make a cover for the fuse blocks :D

Freaking DAMN man. It's sooo nice in there. Does the engine always sit that far back? It looks almost as if you moved it back for piping reasons and/or for better balance... Awesome even if it isn't! Doug, keep it up, that is sooo good, LOVE IT! Keep going, keep going :cool:

where it sits it's pretty damn hard to do that to it. It was the first thing I checked when I decided to put it there.

The engine is the stock local... its cause my IC is up further than stock and the Radiator is in the NA/NonIC position ;)

damn! it is amazing to see a 240 engine bay with no clutter and almost nothing in front of the wheel wells.

Now that you've freed up so much room in there it looks like you have room for about 6 more cylinders! The 4 banger turbo looks a bit lost in such a roomy shell.

nice pics, but somethings just not right about the doors. oh and i'm surprised you left the batt tray support in there.

Nice as allways. What kind of overflow tank are you using? I'm looking for a different one for my 1800. I can't find one w/ a cap on the top.

Bay looks STELLAR bud!
The battery tray stuff goes away with an air cutter and grinder if you get desperate. :)

Does the other line off the catch can vent to atmosphere I take it? and if so where you have it exit?

What is that GREDDY thing?

battery tray support would of been a good place to mount the MSD. would of had plenty of airflow to cool it there, but they that would of ment wires in the bar (arrrgggg).


but yeah look nice, but like something is missing. i think you can take away to much

indeed, however in this fine ****hole.... erm state, if doug were to get pulled over, it would flag th ecops in a heart beat if it was in plain sight like that. as silly as it sounds, most cops wont know that alot of that **** is out of place... like the giant turbo. however, if they see that bright yellow box of love, they are trained to ID that kinda stuff. and onto the flatbed dougs car goes... fine by me

Tis is does but it requires more painting and effort than I had time/willing to do :-D

Ravennexus, if you look at the last 3 years worth the pictures, thats ALWAYS where my MSD stuff used to be mounted. ;-)

Its a greddy catch can. I ran the other port back into my intake (all the weee way around the car) to the air intake below the fender level.

Doug your car looks amazing. Mad props. "Your just too good to be true. Can't take my eyes off of you." It's weird what a beautiful car will do to a person.
