Well I got the oil lines and the motor put back together when the damn rain came. Hopefully I can find time to put the IC in this week or at least by the weekend and see how she runs.

Yep, but as you can see in the pics the snout and rotors have been removed and a blockoff plate has been installed. The casing outlet was hogged out and is now just a reg intake manifold.

Finally a weekend off! Here are some more pics.

Oil feed and return lines ran and everything starting to get hooked back up

That was it for today. Started getting dark and I was getting tired. Hopefully I can get the IC finished tomorrow and start it up:twisted:

Still have a few little things to do and a really good once or twice over to make sure I didn't forget something then it's time to crank her up.

After I took the pics I notice the bottom left bracket for the IC is a little crooked and I'm gonna have to fix that but at the moment I don't really care. I just wanna get it driving[:D]

Looks good. :clap: Are you going to dyno it anytime soon?

posted by  Benson

I'm gonna have to play with it for a while until I get everything tuned in properly. Plus my transmission next on the list and I will start on that in a couple of weeks. So once all that is set I will head to the dyno. My goal is to run between 17-20psi on pump gas. Shooting for 450+whp and 550+tq at the wheels :rock:
