    Awesome, doing the whole thing like that is going to make it 10x better. BTW that yard by me just got a 4-eye 5.0 in a couple days ago. Most the engine is still there, I just saw it today

    Do you need the hose or a fitting all the way to the rack? I have some PS stuff laying around but not sure how much/what.

    Do you happen to have an extra pressure line? I need a new one as mine is leaking.

    well not much progress because of other projects, i had made an agreement with the wife that i would finally update the kitchen as long as i got to spend money on my car this past summer.

    here is the final result of one month of work i took 2 weeks off from work the cabinets and granite i hired out but the rest i did.
