Thanks!

The job for today was to get these to fit


Hade to cut a little here and there but i got them to fit, and with a lot of room for the stock hood latch. But i think i will have to make some better and lighter brackets than the red ones on the picture...


The front exhausts are on some v-band flanges so they can be easily removed and i will make a twin 3" exhaust that will exit by the rear bumper. So the plug on the picture can be moved if i want front or rear exhaust

Been making some progress on it the last week.
Cut the inner fenders to make room for the air filters and welded them together



Had a friend weld the intercoolers to eachother


Had to make some room in for the IC, it is big!


Transmission oil cooler with fan


Bought a Th400(turned out to be a Th375 :( ) and had to make some room for it. The engine is very far back in so the transmission tunnel had to go


New transmission tunnel in the making



The 2 BOV´s made it look alot faster


Now it´s time to take it apart to make some last adjustments

Finished welding on the body, just hours and hours of grinding before i can slap some paint on it


Three header bolts was broken but i got them all out without any problems so i guess i have used up all of my luck for the rest of the year


Made some modifications to the oil pan and the oil pump but its very sunny and hot in Sweden so i am dancing some rain dances and killing all the spiders i can find so i can get someone to stop enjoying the sun and weld for me instead

Made a temporary fuel system today with a chinese-044. Want to have in-tank pumps later.
The bracket is for auxiliary lights on a light bar in the front of a big Volvo truck. Really nice fit


When you are getting close to a startup and you dont have the patience to make a good ground in the trunk this can be a nice solution

A friend welded the last on my intercooler today


Wasnt feeling so well tonight so i just put the radiator and intercooler on the car and tacked up some piping between intercooler and turbos.
Worthless pic but you can see that the radiator is pretty big

Its getting there! The wires for lighting, fans, horn, wideband and some more are now under the front fenders for a cleaner look. Started putting the fenders and bumper back together


Didnt like the shiny intercoolers


Rattlecanned the front lip green as it was blue from the beginning but its a little to stylish for my taste so i will maybe put a stock un-painted one on later

Super cool fabrication going on. I don't even understand how you are making it all fit in there. I love it.
