    I have a mud sucker on my car so I worry I will end up like you. I am taking a transmission/tranny/transfer case class and the instructor told us about the people who go swamping and change out the diff fluid after every event rather than put the breather up higher

    Custom SFCs with a roll cage is in the cars future...who knows what else after that... But if the floor was cut out it would be a hell of a lot easier to get the cage in lol

    Had to go to work all day saturday, went out with tyhe wifey sunday and back at work again now so I didn't get much garage time this weekend.
    Got a few more things done and my new pretune ready to flash into the pcm.

    Still need to put the oil filter on, oil, coolant, tighten the engine mounts, and bleed the brakes, hoping for a short (under 10 hour) work day so I can get some more done this afternoon.

    Fast 90 and a shot of the intake ports. I took a lot of material out of the ports, bowls and opened up around/ knife edged the guide, blended everything, and lastly hogged the intake runners out and port matched the intake and heads

    Hogged out, ported and polished exaust ports
    one more shot of the hogged out intake ports
