Dual spal 10 fans with a fully enclosed shroud.

Catch cans. PCV can from the valley cover to the intake and a draft can off both valve covers

Wilwood prop valve and bracket, just needed a slight bend to clear the inner fender. May replace the front line to clean it up but as of right now it fits and seals so Im not terribly concerned.
kudos for wrapping the pipes but you might need a heat blanket or fiberglass lid/cover for the mast cyl res.

they are not heat friendly and will crack and dump your brake fluid. (ask me how I know)

I went with the `127s and have an older Haltech s2000 platinum that I need installed and I hope to have Brett help me remote.

He's the man with the haltech and the turbo car. Congrats on your build.

Starting a "build thread" too so you guys can rag on me for taking 2 years to get started

Thanks bud. I plan to do something with the MC and reservoir I just havent decided yet. I may actually make an aluminun heatshield to keep radiant heat off of it.

that should do it. On my stinger hood the duct is right there and draws a hot blast of air off the turbos and manifolds out that duct

does help hold down the underhood temps. tiger shark front helps too!!

Im hoping the center vent helps draw hot air from behind the radiator, I would love to add the tigershark bumper but I dont want to spend the money on it until the car is mechanically complete.
