Well it has been a while due to not having time or money. But have gotten some work done over the last few months. Removed the rear drums so I can convert over to rear SVT disc brakes. Will install with Power Slot and Hawk HPS pads (same as what I have up front) and will be using Stainless Steel lines.

Right now I am waiting to find a kit, or go to the local junk yard, their is a lack of Foci and lack of any with rear disc brakes in my area.

Also worked on the EGR bung for the SVT header.

I have the hole drilled in the header to be just the right size and ground down and cut at an angle the adapter. I used just a small tack of super glue to keep it where I want it so it is not moving on me when I do the first weld tack. The adapter only protrudes into the airflow by a millimeter or two. A complete contrast to what was done before (above in post #16)

Will be using a MIG welder in the next week or two to weld it in place. Will also be swinging by an exhaust shop to pick up 2-3" of some excess exhaust grade stainless steel so I can bend to patch the other large hole in my header. Plan on welding this patch and the Oil adapter / bung on the oil pan and then I will be done with welding.
