Cracking work! Is this using the GT500 intercooler brick? Got any more pics of the intake manifold taking shape?

I don't have anymore pics of intake coming together... The intercooler is from ebay. The core is 4.5x5.5x12. The water in and outlets are on the back of the intake. Had a lot more room in my sandrail then most cars. Thanks guys!

Was really hoping for 450-500 at the tires. Will see what a new converter does. Not sure how much hp I'm losing blowing through the converter. It only weighs about 2200lbs. Thanks for compliments! I like to fab and be different...
