Team Z motor plates and mid plates came in but not the outlaw k frame. Was hoping I'd see it before vacation next week. Once I get back from Montana and get the charity car show I'm hosting over with I can get the car to the fab guy for the turbo kit, fuel cell, mini tubs, and beefed up 8.8. Holcomb Motorsports rear seat delete came it the other day too. Really nice piece and light! Highly recommend it. Got the Stifflers driveshaft safety loop too. Very beefy part.






Put my center console back into for the time being. Best place for it not to get broken.





Getting there slowwwwwly.

Decided to not use my built 4r70w and go with a TH400/converter from Hughes Performance. Had him spec the trans and converter for 1200hp so I won't have to ever worry about it. After thinking about it and knowing someone I'll be swapping to one someday I figured no better time than now.

Also hoping to start seeing progress on the car after Christmas. The next three to four months should be quite productive I'm hoping.

Anyway, first piece of the puzzle came in today.

Nothing to note right now. Waiting to get the turbo kit finished and piping finalized before I finish it.

Nothing to much to report for those who care. Everything got delayed from the historic flood we had a few weeks ago. The shop had a foot of water in some spots. Thankfully the cars were trailered away before the water got to them. I did sell the 4r70w so that's a huge help. Ordered a different shifter relocation plate too. I had one with a cup holder but decided the dual button plate served a better purpose for me. Along with the new plate I got my CG Fab oil block adapter and thermostat housing. Both utilize a -16 AN fitting. So then entire cooling system will be AN fittings. Hopefully the car will be started on soon. I am getting pretty antsy to say the least.

I'm boring, sorry.

I also booked a flight for a trip to Dublin, Ireland over thanksgiving this year. Set me back some but for $788 round trip I couldn't pass up that deal.

What did you do with the "old' shifter relocation plate?

I keep clicking on this thread when I see new posts thinking to my self, "oooh maybe he added some more intake porn!"
I wish brother! I think I am bringing the intake back home and going to build a different plenum design. Then I can have the aluminum cut out and tacked together.

Got my intake back yesterday and wasted no time to start messing with it.

I noticed there was some weld that got through where the intake runners meet the trumpets and flanges. Well that didn't sit well with me so I got some 60 grit and 120 grit sanding rolls for the dremel and got to work. There was also edges where the parts met too. I made sure it was smooth for the air to go into the engine but also smooth for the air going back up runner when the intake valve closes. I am pretty pleased with the out come. I might get some more sanding rolls and touch it up just slightly more. Haven't decided for sure yet. I am going to try and fab the plenum again and have it cut out this week. Hopefully. I also need to have new brackets made for the fuel rails to mount them how I'd like to.

Looks good man, when you looking to have the intake finished up? You wouldn't happen to still have a cg kit would you?
Thanks man! Hopefully soon. My car is 4th in the list to get to at the shop. But we will tack it together and make sure it clears the hood first.

I have headers only and they are hopefully sold. Waiting for payment.

Good deal. I'm debating going turbo yet again. I'm pretty deep with the centri setup right now I'd if I should follow through with it or not.
