So I’m back again lol
Got the rear back in the car and all sound and good with that. 26EC5288-D68C-476C-AE58-F64D3E3FA790.jpeg 130CB9BE-099F-4349-8436-1B294E93087C.jpeg F6B515E7-E038-4DD7-BA1D-066BD15AD1E2.jpeg
Took the car out a couple of times and realized now I’m to the point to needing relocated lower brackets. So that’ll be a winter project this time. A4A8B081-6AB6-42E9-AE9A-48FC4C0BF4BF.png BA7E61DE-1027-4D24-A374-36F3479F757F.png
Last rental I went to at MDIR I must’ve really had some good air because my intercooler blew apart. YES APART! I did get some good shots though while there 678C4576-7773-4A53-8C44-1061676EB044.jpeg A44C8B55-F5D2-4322-A3CA-149035FC5E0A.jpeg E4E9E985-6D7B-4604-96A4-0DECE105BD66.jpeg 04D7CBB6-0F6B-4080-A3B3-40CFA3EAED05.jpeg

Photo dump...

since I’m waiting on the intercooler still my buddy was pretty hung up. Went ahead and decided to put a motor plate in the car. Went on race craft and ordered it. Upon first putting it on I realized indeed need new headers so a buddy of mine was kind enough to give me his old set of flowtechs. EB1DA6D8-3F93-499A-9071-3F1CDCDC4005.jpeg

Bought myself a new welder from another buddy who was upgrading so I can finally practice more on tig welding and now do some aluminum tig. I am by no means a master but gotta start somewhere right 44AAECEA-936E-4726-AEA4-91FB918CB5EE.jpeg

had to get some reducers for the flowtechs because of the 3” collector. Went to monkey fab and ordered a set of reducing v bands from 3” to 2.5”. 07C31A61-576C-45EB-9D98-DBBE350E2205.jpeg 8A556A98-7CE8-48FA-BA12-15EEABD5BF38.jpeg C4599494-BD98-4D02-B1D1-4665B1A3AAE9.jpeg
Also went on CSR website and ordered a new electric water pump after having a belt sling off and overheat the car I was done with that.

Starting to find that the new exhaust will hit the bottom radiator hose so made a call to Glenn Payne at mad racing parts to get a new -16 hose with crimp on ends.
