Default Trasher CAI and TOG pics

Here'* some fresh under hood pics taken today.
Thrasher box requires some cutting to get to fit this way and longer tubing, I used Intense'* hose 3.5in, than I wraped the box in 2 layers of reflectix. I think it turned out real nice. IAT is in side of the box. Silver TOG'* are looking nice too!








ZZP modular pulley 3.4in. soon 3.2 also can see my execesivly FAT wires that I love and have my name all over them.

What holds your pcm? Any pics of that? I'm doing an FWI this weekend and thinking of getting the blazer pcm holder.

Btw pics look great but beware the 3.2 without scanning. Maybe a 3.25 or 3.3 would be better...I still see about 5 KR above 5K rpm with the 3.2, none with the 3.4.

Big improvement over when I saw your engine bay in May.

Hope the smaller pulley works out for you.
Heed what Rogue has to say.

Looking great Taylor, I notice you dont have your engine cover on? DId you remove it for the pics or do you run without it? I took mine off last August for the drags and never put it back on, still waiting to customize it....maybe this fall?
I'm running a 3.3" pulley and have no KR unless I've heat soaked the motor but as long as the air intake temp is low I've been ok.

My PCM is held in with the PCM tray supplied with the Thrasher kit. It'* the silver metal box under the air box, you can see it sticking out. Not a bad box, comes with lots of padding so PCM dosen't take the shocks so hard.

Engine cover came off when my first Mod went on. Still have it in the garage, looks new. Planning on making a custom cover with some mesh in it someday, it will be just for show, currently don't have all the engine brackets on, so couldn't attach the rear of the cover without putting them on, who wan't that, those suckers are HEAVY!

Todd, I was thinking about a 3.3 today actually. Haven't meet up with Alex yet for some Atap time, he had some ICCU issues and leaky fuel injectors, which blew the date. Calling him tonight see if we can hook up over the 3day break.

So what would be an acceptable about of KR with the 3.2 to leave it on there. I know you want 0KR, So Todd still got the 3.2 on even with 5KR? Should no more than 5kr leave it on, or suck it up and get a 3.3?

Thanks for all the compliments, sure is looking better huh Paul

you need to paint your valve covers silver to match the TOGs.
