    20180219_1127581.jpg I was able to get a few more items off my list, fabricated the throttle and kick-down to function with the tb rotated for hood clearance. I performed a home alignment, installed the original shock tower bracing as I was able to make it fit. I also got most of the wiring done with relays/fuses mounted near the fir wall on the passenger side.

    I am nearly complete with the fuel system, sump on stock tank, AEM 380, 10/100 micron filters, Aeromotive reg all installed. I am not overly impressed with how the upper rad hose looks, but I have exhausted my options at this point. I will likely get this running around Spring once I sort out the wiring to the Mustang A9L and finish all the little things. I will probably then leave it till next Fall to get the turbo fabrication completed, rear 9", built drive shaft and loop all installed.

    I was able to get the grill, filler panel and front bumper positioned to pretty much hide the intercooler, although it does hang below the bumper slightly, I may give it spray of black paint. It will get great airflow in this position and not cover the entire rad.

    It has been a while, but I am now complete with the engine compartment. The small things always take the longest amount of time. I think I have nearly as much time in getting the upper rad hose to look half decent as I spent on building the entire hotside. lol

    Will the hood close?

    yes, the stock hood will close. I had to run the edelbrock elbow over the belt sander a few times after cutting the tab off and then rotate the throttle body for maybe 1/4" hood clearance now. It may not sound like a sleeper, but my plan is to make it look one ha
