Another boring wrapped header pic


On the SVT intake two bolt holes are not used by Ford. I drill them out and use them, I have a spare intake I pull the metal sleeves from. I think it helps in sealing the intake.
Top is the modified one, bottom is stock.

Thanks, I'm watching your lsd build, glad to see someone willing to try something different, verses regurgitating forum folklore.

Oil pickup. SC is next I plan to install tomorrow. Rain put me a little behind.
