    Since I added a fuel cell in place of the stock fuel tank, I am now using an external pump and braided line. Here is everything after it has been assembled. This was one of the most difficult projects I have ever done. The lines don't want to bend (kind of the point of braided line, bu still), and getting all of the fittings just right took a lot of time of assembling and disassembling.

    Lastly is the exhaust I had fabricated. I already had the 4" "catback" on my Trans Am before the wreck, but this time I decided to upgrade to Kooks 2" primary headers from the 1 3/4" headers I was using since the car was stock five years ago. These new headers have a 3.5" collector, so my old 3" y-pipe would not work. I needed a 3.5" y-pipe made to fit the headers and the 4" exhaust, because no company makes a 3.5" y-pipe...Kooks and ARH both have a 3" y-pipe that opens up to 3.5" to slip over their headers, but that kind of defeats the purpose of getting the 3.5 collector. The fabricated y-pipe is made from 3.5" mandrel bent tubing and comes together with a flowmaster merge at the torque arm mount.

    Still doesn't have body panels, so there's nothing to see. It's getting painted sometime in April or May.

    Good job man. I thought about saying something witty about zip ties, but looks like you covered it ready to see you getting some time slips in. Think she'll be ready by summer?

    The line lock - with it being so close to the headers, wouldn't it "cook" the brake fluid? I saw the heat tape but still that's close.

    That picture is deceiving...it's not as close as you think. I'll get a better picture tonight. I would still like to know if you think it's too close.

    Yeah, it's actually above the header by a few inches.

    I think you'll be fine with it mounted there.

    I was gonna ask you why you didn't give us a heads up so we could've bought stock in zip ties.


    Nice job.....car is looking great. I love that exhaust. I may have missed the pic but did you get the t-tops completely done? I'd like to see some pics of that area and see how it came out.
