    I saw something like that in the classic book. But home made is much better I am sure. Good work. :thumbsup2:

    Yep that is a beast. Your on the rite track. Will the hood have a air grabber on it. Or just have the stack's coming through it.

    Stuck the sixpack-style scoop on last night, and the tunnel ram might just fit - with no air cleaners. Im cutting out the front holes today on the scoop to have a proper look and see if its worth salvaging. If not, Im completly fine with the balls-out approach.

    Threw on some el cheapo mufflers temporarily so I wont have to tow it home before modifying hte exhaust. X-pipe was situated RIGHT where the new Gearvendors sits, so It'll have to be moved back.

    Havent had a chance to stretch the legs yet, temporary mufflers are only taking about 1% of the noise off, so I think I want to wait till that exhaust is on to try not to get any little yellow stickers. Should have it done in a couple days, then Ill hit the highway.

    And yeah, its the dead of winter here. Real nice day you might see 70 degrees, most days tops of about 55-65.

    Gear Vendor is mint!
    I'm running 4:10's in the new Dana 60, with 275/60R15's.
    Before GV - 60 mph 3000rpm
    With Gv 60mph 2200rpm

    Cross country drives should be no problem. Will be interesting to see what kind of mileage I get compared to the old 4 barrel with no OD.
    I'm not holding my breath for any miracles, but if it's at all better than it was, I'll take that as a win.
