Ish! I couldn't think of anything worse than boiled fish. Reminds me of that stinky lutefisk that people eat in MN every year for some norwegian or swedish festival.

I'm trying to get my engine pics onto the computer but some idiot I work with took the data cable out of the case for the camera I used. Pisses me off, but I promise they'll be good.

Alright enough empty promises...here is the proof. The camera I took the pictures with is a pretty nice digital camera (Panasonic DMC-FZ20, for those who must know) from work with a lens hood on the front of it. It apparently blocks the flash and leaves a big black halo in every single picture. So I'll have to reshoot these later. But here's where I'm at. Still have yet for it to start, but we're making progress.







Let me know what you guys think. I'm doing some trouble-shooting so it's not as pretty as it will end up, but you get the idea. Kinda wish I would have painted my engine bay now that it's about 3 shades of red darker than the exterior paint and valve cover colors.

theres a story behind the purple, it was going to be a fire engine red, or some blue... but my i remember promising my wife id paint the engine purple... or else. So it was a choice between divorce and send my *** back to canada or purple.... not a hard choice if you ask me.

As for the fans they are the prm 19008 12"-odd thing is both fans were on different than the others... so i mounted the fans so they would push without reversing the polarity.

email me sometime tho darius, maybe i can swing by and help you out.

In that picture its a SSAC manifold, turbo and wastegate which all held up through over 5000 mi of my abuse (1bar everyday) The manifold was a complete pain in the *** to modify to fit onto my head and when I pulled it back off I saw that it had beenleaking from 3 clyinders the whole time

I now am running a stock manifold with the same SSAC turbo and wastegate running 1 bar low boost and 1.3bar high boost

Only issues i've had and seen with SSAC is with their manifolds and other exhaust components
