    Well, maybe not, but I figured since he seems to be attacking the rest of this project bass akwards, that's how he would likely carry it out?

    Considering how long you had to wait to receive it, had you gone ahead and starting tearing the car down you'd probably be almost ready!

    Calm down notch back fever. Trunks are for hauling groceries. This guy is obviously not an azz man. He's had two assless cars the old cougar and the notch.

    *Radiator Hoses* I was thinking about getting either chrome or silcone hoses pretty soon here but now I'm realizing that there will probably not be an out of the box fit due to the supercharger. Does anyone know of one or wil I have to say buy a chrome piece, cut it and splice w a rubber piece? How hot do those chrome hoses get? Seems like they'd put off alot of heat.

    Both of which will currently wipe the floor with your hatchback. ;)



    ....and the Coupe will do it afterwards too.


    The old V1 and V2 kits used to come with its own chrome relocated radiator hose set up. Does the V3 not?
