    Good mate of mine come around yesterday and gave it a good crack.

    We got the engine, box and headers in. Was a bit of fluffling around. We had to trail fit the box and then removed it so we could clearance sections on the case to clear the tunnel.

    Next was the headers…. for an off the shelf item that I then had to get modified the fitment is junk. Not happy with them, but for now it will have to do.

    It’s starting to take shape and you can now see the black and white theme coming together.

    Now I can start running all my service lines. Prior to removing the engine again. 😩😩

    Looks good Cava. Progress is progress, no matter how small. I feel your pain with the headers, I’ve got pretty much the smallest headers for an LS swap and still had to bash them in with a hammer to get enough clearance. If I end up going for a blower down the track I’d get a set custom made.

    that brake MS and bracket is fking mint. Is it just painted black?

    I should of gone custom from the start. These owe me $650. So I persisted with them….. sadly.

    Bracket is from Lowe fab that I got powder coated. Along with strut tops and my brace etc.

    Master booster is a painted Vz Maloo item. Cap and reservoir is New old stock.

    yeah I browsed your thread other day. There isn’t much room. But I rekon these could of been done a lot better. Tri Y would be best interns of clearance.

     

    Maybe look into a 1 7/8 tri y setup.

    Looking great mate, loving the black/white theme.  Def Tri Y Pacemakers best off the shelf fitment by far.  Cut off the 2.5″ collectors and make new 3″.  I did and made 508rwhp with them so they are not bad power wise either.
