Likely will be able to create a new bracket to maintain the motor assembly to allow for a single drivers wiper (maintain street legal operation) definitely don't want this car to see rain, but laws are laws. On the fence between converting to a cable throttle. It might make it harder to set up WOT box and 2 step. Also collected -10an bungs and bulkheads to weld into the valve covers. Will rout through the strut tower to vented breather/catch cans behind the wheel liners. Not sure if the ls3 valley plate crank vent nipple is large enough, I'll see if anything has to change. The upside is I have about 6 inches of room under the high ram to stash my nice new coil wires and injector harnesses. More to come...

Nice!

On a side note, the angle that that picture was taken makes the intake look a few feet tall to me lol

Fingers crossed. I blame Nathan for starting the Clutter thread and dragging me down this path.

I know there are a small group running this intake, but it seems to flow incredibly and looks amazing:

The tedium continues... I don't want to imagine how long the fuse box and PCM relocation is going to take. It brings a new level of respect for the work and detail that builders like ADM put into their projects . The main wiring harness work will start tomorrow if I'm lucky. Waiting on parts for the engine, but plans have changed yet again!! Also have to take a drive to pick up the 1 piece aluminum DSS shaft that has arrived .

Man that is a lot more work than I imagined! I'm at the point if no return and I wasn't expecting so much extending wires and soldering. I had planed on running only the wires that reached through the back but now I might as well do it all the way your doing for the cleanest look. Your wiring pics are helping me out big time keep them coming

Here are some pics of the new valve covers, relocation brackets and coil harness. Im on the fence as to whether I should paint the VC black or not. it would be much easier to keep finger prints off. Then again, the polished look is nice. Need ARP 12 point bolts to round out the look. All in good time though as I am putting together a MASSIVE arp order. Still havent had a chance to finish drilling out the spot welds on the ABS bracket and fuse box bracket. Will hopefully have a chance this weekend. The holley intake has arrived, picking it up tomorrow hopefully. Then on to the rotating assy. Someone find me a free YSI hahaha.

Haha no shit. I'll just blame Nathan lol. I started doing this since I'm having converter/tranny problems so I put performance mods on hold till that is solved.
