That's weird, I replied to this post a couple of days ago but it never showed up. I think it's really a depowered rack and not a manual rack. It's fine. Not great when doing tight turns like backing out of the driveway but normal at speeds over 10mph. You can "feel" the road more rather than the robotic, straight-ahead stock setup. I really like it because I get to clear out all that space and clutter in the engine bay.
I can't wait to feel my manual rack.

Real sorry to hear about your paint job experience. I am a full time body man at my father in laws shop. I was doing body work for many years before i even met my now wife, actually i am a PPG certified painter and all and some of the stuff i see come threw the door just makes me sick. Please never have maco do a paint job on anything! Last DSM i painted locally on the side took almost 2 months to make it perfect. But we changed the color so i had to paint engine bay, jams, the works. When it comes to body work good work isn't cheap and cheap work isn't good.

Yeah, occasionally I go somewhat cheap and I almost always get burned.

I redid my my fuel feed with 10an line lines and fittings in order to get rid of this lean fueling issue from 3-4k. Kevin Jewer has been working with some of his customers on this weird phenomenon and apparently the large the line the better. I also relocated my fuel filter to right above the rear sub-frame.

Could you tell me about this tool bit that you showed up in post #434?
Is this like a stepped hole cutter or something?

It's just a cheap stepped drill bit I bought on amazon. So nice to have little things like that.

I think that little flex section on the outlet of the wastegate is a really good idea.
These parts look really good all around.
If I ever wanted to not have an external dump anymore, I'd sure go for this.
I'll be real interested in seeing how much clearance you have to the back side of the radiator once all this stuff is installed. I guess I mean, what kind of fans you can fit there. On mine, I have a good sized fan on the passenger side, but a very small fan on the driver's side, and even then there is a fitting on the wastegate that barely clears the fan motor on the back side of the small fan.
Also, I always appreciate a good quality photo, and this photo is very good when you look at it full size (3000 x 2101 pixels).
Hmm, "search google for image" doesn't find this picture anywhere, and I don't see it on the Morrison Fab web site. Which kit is this?

Its the hot parts kit, I see under the kit link on the homepage page for morrisonfabrications.com. I'm looking at the same one.

Well when I click that picture it takes me to the Morrison Fab Instagram post for it, and there they call it a "DSM Xona V-band with a recirculated hot parts setup" and it doesn't say whether it is a small runner or large runner. But that description is what I was looking for. When I drill down through "Our Products, DSM, Manifold and Hot Parts - I don't see it there! They've got 17 kits there! Wow. So maybe this is a brand new kit and Vegas is the first person to get one?

That picture is of my actual kit, to my knowledge, that shipped today. I plan to run dual pusher fans on the other side of the radiator so no clearance issue for me :)
