    Heat sink is right! Just a blob of metal.

    Ques: Is the new one "plug and play?"

    Exactly, no insulation between the sensor and the housing. It was probably reading temperatures of the blower manifold too, not so much the air inside. Which would/should be cooler.
    Almost plug and play, just had to buy a new iat harness connector (plug). They sell them at bmotorsports too.

    Not being in any rush to getting it done is letting me pay attention to all the little details.
    Here it is paint all done.

    No clue, atleast not for a couple months. Ordering parts for the 8.8 near the end of this month, so I'll probably be waiting on those parts.

    Did you get the rims widened? What trailing arms do you have? Really looking forward to seeing this thing come to life!

    Re: Blower build w/pics

    I've had my rims widened for awhile now @ 10" with map trailing arms.
    I hit a pothole last year and damaged a rim, I got a new one but when they powder coated it, the color didn't match the other 3.
    So needing new tires, I figured it was a good time to get my rims repowder coated, and figured might as well try a new color.

    That's some serious rubber. Looks like two of mine glued together.

    Tommy, I'm looking forward to the roads around here getting cleared up after the melt, and a ride in your rebuilt car when it's up and running!

    - Who did the wheel work for you? I have some curb rash, was thinking of going to Wheel Fix It guys about that, and I like the powder coat colour you went with! That's gonna look great!

    Re: Blower build w/pics

    Ya sure thing!!! I brought my wheels to Quick Coatings, just off Pembina. Last time I had curb rash I just sanded it down myself, then got them powder coated. I only paid 120.00 this time, they didn't have to sandblast them because they were already powder coated. The color is called charcoal metallic, I'm pretty happy with the color. It's alittle darker than Anthracite that most people seem to get, which is also a nice color.
    Usually they charge about 40-50 per rim including sandblasting.
