Yes it will be in Austin, and yes it will be "Street Legal" I will just have to change out the rear tires and tune it down a little.

WOO HOO, my 10 point cage gets here tomorrow. Saturday the back half should be done, and hopefully next week I can get the rear end measured and on the way. Only a hand full of things to buy now.

The big boxes are for the fuel pressure gauges, they are pretty complicated in the diesels. Yes it is a lot, 4 boost gauges, one for each turbo if I go twins, and one for each turbo to monitor drive pressure. (2) 0-2000 EGT gauges, one for each side to make sure the temps stay even. High Pressure oil pump, fuel pressure, Rear differential temp, tranny temp. Still waiting on the water, and oil temp's
