Manual brakes and steering is nearly complete. Still need to finish building my new rad and intercooler mount.

Very cool!! Manual steering has got me intrigued, but being a cruiser it seems like a poor decision. Definitely let us know what you think of it!

See you used NiCopp brake lines. Man I love that stuff. So easy to bend and flare and corrosion resistant like stainless.

I agree used them to do my abs delete and move my brake lines . Only thing I found was I had to remove the rubberized coating on the factory brake lines when using inveterated flare nuts to connect to factory brake lines.

Yes so much easier to work with. Making the flares is much easier too.

Not a lot of updates but the car is coming right along. Decided to go ahead and swap in a t56 from and 03-04 cobra. Has a 26 spline input and some other goodies on the inside. Front core support is almost done, just have to weld on the radiator and IC mount tabs. As soon as my clutch and new trans crossmember arrives it will be re-assembly time.

Thanks it worked out really nice. Im actually using that tank as an overflow as I got rid of the expansion system. Its a simple ebay overflow tank but super good quality... https://www.ebay.com/itm/ASI-1000ml-...e/162877168316

From Vortech to Turbo

First start up was a success. Time to make a dyno tune appointment.
