I decided to order some 4 inch oval exhaust piping i want ground clearance.
Image
A Mishimoto Radiator and Fan and shroud combo.
Image
And some 16 gauge aluminum intercooler piping.
Image
Ordered an Xcessive KA power steering and AC delete bracket.

My fuel set-up is an AEM top feed fuel rail with Siemens 850cc injectors and Aeromotive A1000 which i bought for a good price overkill yes!!
Image
Image
My fuel lines and Radium fuel regulator and fuel rail set-up roughdraft.

I also got the Xcessive KA to VG trans adapter kit.

I ordered a set of Deutsch DT series connectors the stock connectors were broken and it makes no sense to keep em in that pitiful state.
Image
Test fitting fuel rail and injectors and ev1 clips out of boredom.

Still waiting for the following: Works bell hub adapter, Works bell rapfix GTC pop-up steering system and Aeromotive 15 Gallon Stealth Fuel Cell.

And the Aeromotive 15 gallon Stealth fuel cell with 340lph built in pump also arrived.
Image

And i found a few firewall grommets to safely run my wiring harness through, I might pop-rivet these later?
Image
Update i changed my mind on the Fuel Cell skeleton :):):):) was way too heavy so i simplified it.
Image
With my Hobart Handler 140 Mig welder and chop saw i love welding!!
Image
I had a set of sway bar endlinks that were not of use to me so i used them to mount my intercooler, now i can raise and lower and tilt the intercooler if needed? turned out good i like it

Two thru-panel electrical connectors for my battery inside the cabin and an extra ground to the motor just in case?
