Did you order the 417? I'll be curious to see how yours works, if you did.

well been under the weather all weekend so didnt get much done. i did get hood measured where i need to drill for the latches and intercooler came in.

Did some mock up. looks good.



Cleaned the dust off the hood. cleans up good


this set up is going to poke out of the hood prolly 4 in or so


Got about 10k likes on insta for this pic. felt pretty good. Motion raceworks, LSXmotorsports and that racing channel. check them out.

Thanks. turned out pretty good. took about 6 hours to cut the hole and get everything lined up lol


Looking to either buy a tig welder and make a ice box or just buy one and and rule 3700 pump it. i dont want to take up to much room in the hatch so kind of want to make my own and make it go long ways next to spare tire area.

got alot done last night for being cold as ***** out. Master cyl is bench bled and installed with new lines to proportional valve, wiring extended to the TB and started mocking up charge pipe

This was original pipe

few pie cuts and should be good to go



wiring done here other than some loom


TB cable bracket modded to fit new cooler


I am Dumb lol


love this tool btw


New master installed. went with a 7/8" master. hope i got a little more braking power from it.


making some pie cuts today and hopefully have a good idea what itll look like soon. i need to buy a dang tig welder. this would be alot easier. Going to be ordering some vikings crusaders for all 4 corners and trz arms, and an ice box with a 3700 rule pump soon.

got a few thing done over the weekend.

Made a drive shaft loop from some scraps i had laying around.




Got my switch panel for boost switching, switch for my shifter mac valve so i can shut off if need, Data log button with led, all the 12v cig lighter deals wired up. going to maybe add a radio to factory location or hide it it the arm rest.


Amp mounted


test fit the yeti. plenty of room for ice box and other junk


Got the charge pipe all mocked up. need to have a buddy tack it and double check to make sure it all fits. Radiator still fits and should work out.

Hoping to get some parts ordered in the next couple weeks. Cage cert day at local track is march 8th. GOT SO MUCH TO DO STILL!!

been to cold to work on anything, did get charge pipe welded up and put down payment on a 24' spread axle.





should be nice to hit up some events having some shelter.

Hopefully this week it warms up and can get some wiring finished up

Are you planning on racing any sanctioned events? I was just curious, because if not, does the cage need to be certified? I don't think at most of the no-prep type events they even check for certs. I know they do a basic safety, but I have not heard of them looking for sfi stuff/cage certs etc. I was under the impression nhra only does that if you race a program. I have not raced anything more than a few evening events in years though, so I may be out of touch.

Got a bunch done over the weekend. Brakes are bled, walbro 450 intank installed, wheels cleaned up, fuel gauge wired and working, and a few odds and ends.

waiting for a Leash dual relay to show up to finish my fan install


ugly pie cut but itll work.


Fragola -16 fittings installed. just need to order a Motion race works bulk head.


wheels looking good


fuel gauge mounted on center console to reduce wiring on the dash. dont mind the mess


tie down for trailer welded on.


580 dollars in fitttings and a new walbro 450. should be plenty of fueling now. GOt the 450 as my primary and 4303 is turned on when i turn the booost control switch on


tested the amp. gotta have tunes


ended the weekend with some steaks on the grill. I really wanted to take it off the jack stands and cruise it.


going to be ordering my chute and shocks this weekend. received my RaceQuip window net and harness. gotta weld on some loops for the harness so it doesnt slide around and then march 9th is cage cert day. fingers crossed.

I agree on being safe instead of sorry on the safety aspect. Since you have went this far, I would suggest getting a diaper. Much easier now while its cold outside and your not driving it, than to rush when you need or want to drive it. Just my suggestion.
That trailer is sweet!
