    Washing the B&B


    Yellas and push rods installed





    Whipple installed, ecs tensioner, and custom moroso power steering tank



    Had to redrill the manifold mouning bolt holes, never took into consideration that milling the deck .005 to zero it plus a thinner head gasket would affect the head to manifold geometry as much as it did. Just glad the manifold sinched down with the .020 difference, without having to mill the blower manifold.

    Anyway, just got some minor odds and ends to do, mostly wiring in my new Iat, wiring the MAf, for a slot style, and wiring in a SNow variable methanol controler.
    Could have it done in a day, too bad I don't have day to work on it for a bit. Hopefully get it to the tuners in afew weeks, if she starts without problems.

    Poor dusty girl..

    Re: Blower build w/pics

    Got her started on the weekend, finally had some time to get it finished. Not sure when I'll get in for a dyno tune, hopefully by next week some time.




    A couple vids




    Sprung a coolant leak from the intercooler piping, just need a new fitting, other than that she's good for tuning.

    Thanks, cleaning up wiring and hoses in this thing is no easy task. next on my list is hard lining the intercooler lines to clean them up a bit.

    Sexiness... Excellent work. Can't wait for dyno numbers. Are you going to do before and after meth #s so you can see the difference? Or are you going whole hog straight away?

    I actually want to get it tuned without meth first, to get the timing set. then tune in the meth and adjust the afr. I'm not really interested in pushing the hp with meth right now, just using it for additional cooling.

    Gotcha. The meth should be good for a few more HP depending on the % of meth to water. I have heard some guys running washer fluid... But I think snow performance sell methanol you can buy to throw in the tank
