There goes the #3 spot. Looks good, hope the weather cooperates for MGM. I'll see you there.

i like the clear coolant hose
Those are modified stock valve covers. I filled the lines in with JB Weld and sanded smooth. Used Dupli-color high-temp primer and Aluminum paint.

That'* what the hood looks like under the hood pad. (Tbe vac port on the SC was poking the pad, so we took it off.)

The clear hose allows you to view if there is any air in the system. Also, behind the alternator you'll notice the Ford Cobra degasser tank for the IC. Really helps easy the process of getting air out for the system. (Credit to Ron for this setup.)

There'* plenty of guys here in Illinois. Check out ChicagoGrandPrix.net and ILGPC.com. ILGPC is having a race day this Sun at US41 in Indiana. I *might* go to this event if I can. (Feel free to PM me about the puller. We could find soneone near you that would be able to do it for you cheaply.)

I'm looking forward to it. We'll have to take some vids of us racing and taking out some GTPs. :P
