wow, nice progress.

Looks like cold side piping is gonna be a bitch, and I'd be worried about what the hot side was close too, looks tight to a lot of stuff

The cold side is almost done. I am reusing the pipe I used last year. The only thing I have to do is move the BOV to another location.

A picture from when I made the pipe.


And installed with the BOV as it was before.

Thanks!

Yes, it took a while to make and it is a tight fit.



But building the hot side took a lot more time.

Awesome work man, alot of skill and dedication to take the idea in your mind, then create something tangible that will haul ****

Hey Joby how close is that exhaust crossover from driver - passenger under the oil pan? Did you heat wrap it & or use somekind of heat shield? I 'd like to use block hugger headers, then do an under oil pan crossover to a 3" single exhaust or use a 2x4 tube, currently scrapping the floor over railroads and speed bumps. Feed that exhaust into a rear mount turbo & then bring the intake up through by the inner chassis frame rail ( heater fan assembly already gone) then straight shot to engine, 750 carb.

Old pictures:





It is plenty of room for a crossover pipe. I only used heat shields on the headers and exhaust wrap on the downpipe. Nothing on the crossover.

Anyone know the record for a stock shortblock? Or a stock shortblock with bolts? This has got to be right up there if not it!

Congrats! The setup looks great!

That thing is getting it done for sure. 135 MPH trap speeds are no joke.

What's you combo again? Stock L98 short block, better rod bolts, modified stealth ram, and XX boost? Right?
