Marauder Project Begins

Hey all, it's been a while since I've posted a shop Rauder project... had a new customer contract us to Eaton Swap and gear his Rauder... In the process of gathering up the parts... if the mods can figure out how to allow me to post photos again I'll gladly share the project!

Are you starting with a totally stock Marauder? What are the specs for the finished product hoping to be? Looking forward to this build.

Not the heat exchanger, the intercooler below the supercharger. Don't know if you are looking for one

Ahh, isn't it the same one as the Cobra?

At this point we need the entire blower assembly including this piece... working on a deal right now, if it does not pan out, I'll be in touch!

Of course you "may or may not know of a guy" Def going the Eaton route, not worth the extra coin to go Trilogy. However I may need to raid that guy's stash of parts to finish this thing up!

Yep...I started using Imgur when PhotoSucket asked $399 a year for photo storage/ransom.
Imgur runs wayyyy faster than PhotoSucket.

BTW: The douchebag CEO who came up with that grand scheme has been fired. That's why all the old PhotoSucket hosted pictures are now back and viewable.

We basically have everything here that we need, I'm sure that I'll run into a few parts and pieces once we get started!
