Looks good. I like the ramp under the rear wheel too :D

Have you considered some motor mounts while youre in there? Just an idea, im not sure if youve mentioned it or not.

I have already painted my engine bay....black of course. That was just the bottom part of it. The top part I degreesed so it shines more. But the engine will be painted black when I get it back. But if you were goin for the true blue you just missed it lol. Its a little too light for true blue. But if your ok with it then Im ok with it.

haha yea... i actually just gave my engine builder my block and told him to assemble it with forged internals and a bore and stroke job. he smiled and said he will take care of me... i'm putting 10.5:1 compression with new patriot stage 2 heads, comp cam 270's, bbk headers, accufab 70 mil throttle body, 30# fuel injectors, and a bbk cai... ontop of all my other mods previously made...the only thing the engine builders buildin is the bottom end... the rest of the work i'll be doing myself.

Yeah like I said Im goin with the Mod Max kit and Im ordering my pascetter headers tomorrow. Im goin to have a mild port and polish job on the heads. No cams unfortunatly. Stock throttle body and stock fuel injectors. I want to raise the compression to 10:1 but Im goin to save that for another motor later on lol. And after I can get that damn fuel pump she'll be goin on the dyno on the 150. Oh and I buying a set of barely used mt et streets from a buddy for $200.

On the car right now are black bullets 17x9 upfront with a 245/40/17 and out back are 17x10.5 with 285/35/17. The mt's are 275/40/17's but the mt's are actually wider than a regualr radial so they still should look fine. After I wear those out Im goin to go with a 315. But you should be more than fine with the 275's out back. When I had them on the prostars it would bog if I just dumped the clutch at like 3k.
