    Work In Progress

    I have a few things on my shop bench that are almost ready for release.

    1) **DONE** My 1st CAI is built and heading off to the mold next week so hopefully shortly after we can have another option for CAI.
    My CAI will not rub the hood liner and will not have a heatshield. I made a completely enclosed box that pulls air in from the stock location behind the DS headlamp. RAI will be afterwards!

    2) I have a completly new cooling mod that will be offered 2 ways. an on the cheap and an exact copy of my cooling mod. Neither will connect to the crossover tube so no "T" adapter's, no welding, brazing, or hoses to cut.. Both will make use of 5/8" tubing so your rear cylinder's will LOVE you for this mod.

    3)I am getting ready to soon do my cam swap so I will make a full DIY on the install of advanced cams

    4)Whenever I get time I gotta start welding and prepping for the SC pipes and IC piping as well. I may run a special on my CA's so I can get moving on this.

    If you guy's have something I may need to consider for the future shoot me a PM.

    Might think about adjustable front tubular lower control arms.

    An easy venture would be an adjustable tubular trans cross member with 3"/4" pipe for exhaust pass thru's. Maybe get with Brian and see what he needed to do to fit that 4R100 and see if maybe a flippable version would work?

    I always said the same thing: "Oh boy, when I degree my cams, I'm going to do a writeup!" haha
    When you're balls-deep into it, unless you have another person there, you aren't taking pictures. you're trying to keep your eye on the degree wheel, and the indicator, and then locking and unlocking the cam(s) at various times, unless you have a dedicated camera person, you're not going to get it captured in a useful way. at least I couldn't.

    I hope you have more luck in getting a camera person than i did.
