Your help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Glenn, I will edit this post later with the parts #. Don't have it just now. Just didn't want you to think I missed your post.

Guys, I updated the OP with all the links and part numbers for all the ARP bolts I've replaced. Let me know if you if that helps.

Nathan - I don't need the hole. I stil have to decide if I want to use a breather to eliminate the the clean air line on the coupler.

If I remember correctly you have been in contact with Vararam regarding this topic. Did they tell you about any disadvantages by going with a breather / deleting the clean air line?

I spoke with Patrick in length. The short of it is, ideally, the keep the line. It would make more power. By the way, they are coming out with a spacer that should help increase power. Hes been testing it for a year on his personal car. Should be out soon. One thing you could perhaps do is rotate the couple 45 degree towards the right as I did and then run the line under the throttle body attached to a cool fitting. So that it's not sitting on top.

By the way, when I was research the best case scenario, one thought was to run the line under and into the actual intake but he discouraged me from that also.

Can't wait to see it! Take your time install them with all the fresh paint. Patience is your friend.

Tony was referred to them for a different item. In conversation, I mentioned that I was looking for rails without the logo. He said they make them for other companies and he could get me one. You'll need to call and speak with Jim.

Big difference a what a few hours of sanding will do.



This was all done by hand, 120, 320, 400, 600 and the gray painters scotch bright. I test fitted it on the car and it looks REALLY nice. I relocating the harness that goes over it to feed the alternator. So that area is going to look really clean. Can't wait to show you guys.



I have some stuff coming in the mail thats going to make your life a lot easier to relocate these harness. Stay tuned.

Nathan, OMG!!! That bracket is beautiful! You could make some money polishing out parts...not that you would want to, I'm sure. Are you going to clear-coat the aluminum so that it stays looking that way?

So my newest present came in the mail yesterday - polished evap line. Hoping to install it today, but it's balls cold so that may not happen.









I got this lovely piece from member Nathan Moreno - who's totally awesome by the way If you haven't already, you need to check out his Project Cleaning the Clutter in Our Engine Bay Bay thread. It's insane how much detail he's putting into it, easily one of the top DIYs on here.

These are some before & in progress pics of the evap line. Again, thank you so much Nathan.

I brushed the blocks and polished the tubes



In this picture, I still hadn't polish the inlet tube.

I'll post before/after pics once I get it installed

Definitely just for personal project, LOL. Not sure if I'll clear coat or anodize in a gray or black yet. The hard part is done, it's now cleaned of all inspections.

Here the bracket installed:



Here you can see how I rerouted the harness under a cavity.



Looks much cleaner without the harness running over the bracket.



One more shot.



I guess the only thing that stinks is that now the water pump and alternator bracket looks like crap. Oh No, I shouldn't had said that knowing myself that will be my next project.

Factory exhaust stick out like a sore thumb, looking at different brands.
