I poop in the furnace.
Is it just an optical illusion or is the pinion actually angled up that high?

Looks cool though. :icon_thumby:

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.

It is an optical illusion, but I did cut and turn the "C"s on the axle. It looks more of an angle that it is.

Pathy tank install

fitting the V8 under the crossover hoop...

That's not going to fit..

56056


56058


much better... I would have rather had the truck intake for torque, but when you are adding roughly 3 times the HP and torque to what was stock I fudge a little...

56057


56059


Then got a steal on some new LS2 covers, not sure if they will fit though. They're just lying on the engine so they're not perfect. Oh the lies... LOL

Since I painted it outside, apparently clear coat is sweet and gnats like it. 2 gnats lost their lives for my truck. I guess its kind of like amber, in 10,000 years the clear coat will be worth money. :D

Well... I actually spent money on the truck. I needed a 90* and 45* AN fittings for the power steering. So, if the truck was running I'd have functioning power steering. :D Now on to finishing the cooling system...
