Jesus it is hard to fit everything in between the bumper. Here are some more pictures of how tight it is in there. AC was a must.
We ran into a problem with the intake manifold not fitting. So currently we are making a custom one. We also had to remove the brake booster and look for a remote booster set up. Finally one was acquired.
So we figured out a way to not make a completely custom intake manifold from scratch. All we had to do was modify the runners a little and cut some tabs.
Its almost ready for start up!
Wiring harness. Done and done.
Its almost there boys and girls! Cant even tell it went through a swap. Sleeper status baby!
Super Sleeper Status…Sounds good huh!
Almost done with the drive train stuff!
So a few things have come up since my last post.
1. The axle was a little to close to the gas tank for comfort so it was stabilized and the rear diff bushings were installed.
2. Since the brake booster was removed, we opted for bigger rotors and brakes to help ease the brake pedal. (anyone know any other tricks to make the brake peddle softer?)
3. I have to buy new rims to clear the brakes.
So in the past month we have ordered the Ground Control Coilover Conversion Kit (Front 550, Fear 750), got a new set of wheels (16×9 and 16×10.5), 4 to 5 lug adapters, and started to mount Kamoto’s Ultrawide fender flares. Originally we were planning on wrapping the tires with 255 in the front and 275 in the rear, but we might have more space to mess with. We shall see.
So we just got the ground control coil over conversion kit, got our own shocks, shortened the strut housing by 1″, and put it all together. Looks pretty good. We hit a little obstacle however. I originally planed to run 275’s in the rear but the widest thing I can find for 16″ is 255. So I’m looking to sell/trade my wheels, and also looking into the idea of just running 255 in the rear and 235-245 in the front, Ill just have to get some super sticky tires. I don’t know how these will look with kamotors ultrawider fender flares though, so maybe ill cut them or grind them down to not flare as much. All to come!
