              • Weapon R header (Rear) Leaking on 2 banks. **** welds. [Not pictured, front bank gasket leaking out]






                You Tarass 3L rail people live on the edge. A little bending made this fit better.






                Fuel cell is in and finishing up the plumbing.




                Brand new mtx75 running 3.8 Final..(Not my first choice :( ) Trying out an M-Factory diff this time around.




                Quick mock up on fitment







                Here is the main lump installed, got a bunch more done since this picture, but its mostly just little odds and ends to clean up...

                    • Its not aimed at a particular issue. Heat and underhood temps have been a issue when autocrossimg

                      Everything is very tight in this engine bay... touching in many cases... I have a ton of heat sleeving and sheething material on the car. Anything that prevents melted things and gets the heat off anything that makes the car go fast longer.
