Wish you were here too, Paul. The odd angles are toed in and out because of the valve/port stagger. Just like the grand national.

Will do, Jimzilla. She'll be back this coming weekend for another flush of the 'ol ricer trans. Seems to have helped, so we'll go after another 1/3 of the fluid.


Lots of pics will be up later tonight. MAJOR progress pics. Finalizing the IC stuff, things stacked up REALLY nice. Again, Pdad has saved my sore and back today. Good to have such a damn good wrench around here. Just bouncing stuff off him and fabricating with two opinions is immensely invaluable. Paul, you'd have been very busy here had you made it.

Off to pickup a take 'n bake pizza, then back to soldering the FINAL fitting angles on the IC core.

Pics will be up in a couple hours.

Alotta pics. New axle went in, set up some plugs for the LIM, two to allow holes to solder the final connections, one for the new post-IC air temp probe. Lots of other progress, ask questions if you have any. The LIM and SC pics coming later are only a test-fit for IC inlet and outlet angles. Also shown is what the magnetic nosedrive fill and drain plugs picked up in 1000 miles or so on the Zilla:

Wrinkle paint held up very well. These hoist brackets put up with install last winter, hoisting out the old, hoisting in the new, and everything in between:

Keep in mind, this intercooler is just a prototype unless it performs flawlessly, and I don't feel like mucking with it any more. It may very likely be re-done inside the LIM before WCBF '08.
