regardless, what is the fascination with these type things. The stock parts work excelent, are compact, and easy to remove and plug the extra ports. This looks like a nightmare of adapters on adapters adapters..
For me this was visually more appealing 🤷🏽‍♂️ Did not like how the stock unit looked even with a bunch plugged off.

Last piece from frontline fab came in. Thought I had a gasket but cannot find it anywhere so guess I’ll need to order that now.

I’m liking how that chase bays piece routes it, I’d just keep an eye on the Mishimoto cap. I’ve seen more than one instance where those Mishimoto caps don’t hold the pressure they’re rated to, in all cases they were switched to an 8 dollar hollar Motorad job from the parts store that held no problem.

We’ve had one on the wife’s Genesis coupe for a couple years now and it’s done well on there. Worst case I order the chase bays cap LOL

Also picked this stm cas cover since the old one looked rough LOL. Kind of thinking about having a sticker made for the center so make it my own

Rain has stopped me from making any more progress at the moment.

If it’s started raining in your neck of the woods then I give it another hour before it’s wet and miserable up here in shootout country. I feel your pain I’d rather be getting the last of my outside work done today.

What all am I looking at? Is that a thermostat housing and reservoir all-in-one? Where did you get the adaptor for the head? Looks cool.

Little update:

Got the coolant reservoir mounted under the car

The top vent is touching the floor panel so it’s up as high as I can get it.

Got the line I need to run from the fill neck to the back of the car from a good buddy of mine.

Also found a molded hose that fits how I needed it to without having to a bunch of extra stuff

I’m off next week for thanksgiving so I’m gonna try to get out and get some stuff done. Still have to get the crank trigger installed and wires laid out where they’re gonna sit so I can get the harness laid out in the car and finally start wiring this thing back up.

Update time:

Took all this week off for thanksgiving. Figured I’d use this free time to get some stuff done to the car.

Timing tide needed taken apart so I could get the kiggly crank trigger installed.

Be on the lookout for that update coming soon

Much better looking that the old one LOL.

Put a new plug on the trans fan. Really liking putting these connectors together l.

Pulled the cas housing off so I can get some rtv on the back and seal it up.

Hoping the decent weather holds out so I can start running wires.
