Below are pictures of the turbos when they came in. they seem very small to me, but thats because they were able to fit 67mm inlets in an E style Housing. pretty awesome.


LoveFab Manifolds in progress, these things are awesome and I hear they flow fantastic.


New Dyno where we will do the tuning.

Very nice! What regulator are you going with for the Aeromotive. Also what fuel line and connectors did you choose. It looks like our fuel systems are similar.

Intercooler Art

The intercooler is now complete.... this was a big check mark off the list.

here are some photos to show its progression. Most of this work was completed DURING LoveFabs dyno day... 30 people got to stand around and watch Cody, cut, measure, bend, trim, retrim, retrim, retrim (you can always take a little off... but cannot add back to it!)

at 11pm the night of the dyno day/open house everyone was amazed to see this piece be complete and get a taste of how much work and how much art it takes to build something like this.
