    Honestly I thought about doing away with my ps cooler and oil cooler I think all they do is warmup said fluids even more and create more potential for leaks lol

    I thought hard about it too....almost did. I really wanted to do a manual rack too but really really want to keep my big tires and keep it driveable.

    At least this way it will look better than all those nasty lines underneath the oil pan.

    The gold plating acts like an additional intercooler + insulation from engine bay temperatures. I'm going for sub-zero ACT's It has nothing to do with my lifestyle!!! Haters gonna hate....

    Do you know what you're doing for the fuel rail yet Jacob? I spent some time staring at an old one I have...wondering about brazing some AN fittings on either rail and splitting the 8AN I have from the pump into two 6AN's. I know it's been done before....a billet rail setup would be nice though!! I'll probably wait until next year to do any fuel system rework though....interested to see what you do in the meantime.

    I talked to Ken and discovered the an fittings are soldered on so... No biggie to modify another rail to fit and solve the crushed line problem.
