QUESTION!! Ok the rear looks like the height can be adjusted by crankin that bolt correct? Ok, well the plate that comes down to push the spring... is there some kind of retaining slip on it to keep the spring my sliding off the pad? From the recent set of pix I can't tell if there is a spring capture device, i'd just hate to see ya driving and hit a bump or lean it hard in a turn and the spring come off that upper pad and then BAM!! like i said just wondering

Yes, there is a spring cage inside the jack plates.

the factory sending unit needs to be in place for the evap system, plus I already swapped the fuel pump for my engine mods. I couldnt see trying to spend that much more time on something when all I gotta do is make an adapter for what has already been designed for the truck.

no downpipe yet. waiting on more pipe... that is just from the headers to the turbo. im trying to make this to where it can be a bolt on kit so people in search for an alternative forced induction kit can have one!

here is a couple more of the exhaust:








keep in mind, this is just a prototype, not a finished production setup. it may not look "perfect", just give me some time

uhh dude, this might seem random.. but is that a supercharger on top of the engine there?




Looks like the proper setup for one from the lower right of the picture.. then i ehard you say something about a turbo and saw the teaser there in the far rear of the picture.. yeah, Im jsut confused, and I dont feel liek reading all of the thread.. darn me for not paying attention! :-D



Edit: nevermind, im an idiot.. jsut skip past this post.. after deductive reasoning and seeing it all, I figured it out. Gosh, thats what I get for beign on the computer at 12:30 AM after a hell of a long day at work
