Supposedly I get the fronts this week and the rears at the end of the month. I will mount up the fronts and update the photos at that time. As for the intake manifold fitment is very good however you have to use side feed injectors and the stock fuel rail because it is so tight. I wish someone would make a side feed fuel rail for the s15. The Full race Manifold is very nice and heavy now I know why they don't crack the robotic welding is amazing.

So does the FULL RACE mani clear the stering box ? We never even got that far with my SR SWAP.. I was told it would not fit and I did not want to detune the motor with a log mani and smaller turbo etc etc, so I sold the whole engine package.

This is the only one that I have heard this happening to with this modification. It is now repaired and will be at motoring J style this weekend I am sure he has done even more to the car modifications to his car since the last time he had it out.

Yeah unfortunately this was a bad day for me! Those were not Phil's hood struts. Those were my version that I pieced together from McMaster Car. When I got the hood and paint fixed I ended up with Phil's. His are designed to use a stronger location in the vehicle. Learned that lesson the hard way!

Well the wheels are still not here I have been hearing next week for a while now. The wheels are te37 in Mag Blue and I cant wait to see them on the car. As for the exhaust manifold it will only work if you use a rack and pinion set up. I wounder if I should have gone top mount now it may have made fitment easier.

Any idea of where your ride height is going to be? Those strut tubes look really long! Sweet build, though. Love the color...I'm thinking of going with a solid grabber orange when I get to that point.

Grabber orange is a good color add some hemi cuda graphics to it just for fun just to drive the dodge guys nuts. The struts are 25 1/2 inches from bottom of camber adjuster to bottom of strut as it sits now. From the Bottom of strut to bottom of collar is 10 1/4 inches. I'm guessing ride height to be about 5 - 6 inches off the ground but we will see when the wheels show up. I at least want to go over speed bumps when needed with out the drama and the rash.

Damn!!! I am blocked from pics at work. I wanna see :(

Everyone on this forum needs to use Flickr. For some reason I am blocked from flickr itself but all my pix posted from flickr can be seen from work. Strange

The wheels looked amazing on the car. Will look great when you get the tires. Can wait for pics of the car on the ground.
