The word PERFECTION comes to mind when I see how SPOTLESS EVERYTHING is in that engine bay. It seriously looks like you're assembling 100% brand new parts there

What are you using to hold the plug wires along the front bank?

Everything is essentially at least stripped, modified, improved, and repainted. No part is untouched.

Moroso wire retainers (the metal part) modified to work on our cars, plastic parts thrown away. The black clips are MSD wire seperators. They're zip-tied through a new hole in the moroso wire mounts. Basically the same setup I ran on it last year, but improved with the MSD seperators.

Anyone notice anything different on the supercharger between last night and tonight?

I can't stop myself from going through here and looking at it repeatedly. Absolutely gorgeous.

That pulley sure looks different. The one looked black last night. So what are you down to a 1.5" yet??

Any living thing you suck into the FWI will be deaf before it gets there now.

That M62 looks badass!

When I work on my spare Valve covers, i was looking at encorporating standard wire holders instead of that damn black piece of crap that sits on the front....

I'm strongly considering alternate retainers now too. I didn't even know about them until I saw that pic

Why'* your hole so small? j/k. It'* amazing how the lower'* have relatively stayed the same from M62 G3 to M90 GV. Also interesting is how the 93-95 LIM'* where the only years to have that wall internally.
