Just a few more little things to button up before first start up!

    Installed a 1g aluminum radiator along with some 1g silicone hoses. I prefer the top hose being away from the heat. The dual 12" slim fans were knockoffs but performance remains to be seen. Yea yea I know.... Used stock plugs off of junkyard 420a fans to make the harness plug and play so no hacking my harness.

    IMG_4602.JPG Slacking on the updates as I'm currently searching for a new home. But the motor is up and running! Not even lifter tick at startup. Break in period is over and now it's time to install bigger injectors and tune it. Was running 450s and stock boost/ECU map for my initial break in. 12psi max. Can't wait for her to open up and breathe.

    IMG_4798.JPG IMG_4801.jpg IMG_4828.JPG Picked up some more stuff for the future which is a new CC breather and catch can setup along with some larger FIC 1150 injectors. Also started to get rid of anything that's corroded for a cleaner look. This may take awhile

    What is up with that bumper cut job to fit around the IC?

    Well because I didn't like the little walls that only went some of the way up the bumper opening. I cut out the black portion and a little more which left the gap of the inner walls at the top. Just my preference.
