Just read the entire thread from the beginning. Awesome project! You must be stoked.

Are you still running the FRIII cams or did you swap out something else and I just missed it?

Thanks! I'm really not running anything yet, lol! FRIII are installed but everything has been done at the same time (a year). It is about to be driven and tuned in about 250 miles since motor, clutch and flywheel are new and want to do some break-in.

I'll be curious to see how those cams run for you. I'm exploring going from a JRSC to turbo and I've been wondering whether my FRIIIs will work or whether I'll need to go with a Stage 1 or something. Keep us updated. Your project rocks!

I see you moved it, but I'd be more worried about those bends. Usually want 9" of straight pipe for good MAF readings. It might stumble, or might not. I screen may help dampen that effect if needed...

NO! Don't go!! Lol!! The Magnaflow is being welded tomorrow, still missing the EBC, WG and BOV vacuum lines, seal the heater holes in the thermostat housing and locate the second catch can for the PCV(has a braided line already).

Moved it a bit we'll see how it goes but the guy who posted right before you is my tuner, he'll be the first to shout just like he did when he saw the original position of the maf, as well as many other bloopers and brain farts, lol!! Did not know about the screen though.

Oil leak!! Is coming from the crank retainer; also even with the guided pulley, the timing belt keeps sliding out against the mount, belt seems to settle half way off the tensioner, must be doing something wrong or the new tensioner is not working.

Not that I'm using this but ran across it after you mention it, is from a Thunderbird.
