Yeah that sounds about right. All that little stuff will nickel and dime you to death. Thinks like -8 90 fuel line elbows that cost $20/each, and silicone couplers, and t bolt clamps, and gauges, and well, pretty much everything.

my budget of a like $600 has gone to like $$$$ but that budget was when little work was had, but now that I have a full time job the situation has turned on me.

I know all you junkies like pictures instead of reading words....

so heres a few minor updates.

Got about 95% of the paint and rust off



And some were curious to see what the intake looks like. Quite similar to Josh's style but a slight difference of whatever that is.

I saw a similar manifold on eBay briefly when I was building mine. Some guy had built it for use in some sort of turbo Ford. Had a somewhat steep BIIN price, I hesitated, someone snapped it up.

been a few weeks or so since last post. Did a bit of work the past few days.



Work still seems to be off the walls and I have a business trip in a few weeks so I dont see anything happening for atleast the next 3 weeks. After I get back from New Orleans in a few weeks I plan on taking the block to the Machinist to get decked and see about how much to take off for tight squish.

If any body has andy ideas on how much shine in cause im pretty damn clueless.

Plan on buying some stock height H-beam rods from RSI and then go from there

And some car shots with the crazy ice/snow we got a few days ago.


after like 30 minutes of snow fall
