    update:6/30

    Started to do final mount up of the intercooler and radiator, I need to raise the intercooler about 1/2 inch to square it out with the grill

    I got lucky the factory upper rad hose and cover worked perfect, the lower havent tried yet looks like it will be a pain. Mocking the fan up for some brackets after that time to drill some holes in the core support for the intercooler pipe to carb hat:D

    Lookin good. I put the full GM serpentine belt assy on mine so I can run PS, a/c and all of that stuff. I hope it doesn't block my header routes. We'll see before long.

    Started to mock up the temporary pipe from intercooler to carb hat and set the turbo in place for visual confirmation. Looks like I will need to move the turbo up about an inch or two, s.o.b is heavy and its tuff to move jockey around for position :mad:
