Fitted out with ARP bolts. And High Volume Pump. Full MSD Ignition Setup, T400, Spooled 4.11s and ect.

    Will do mate, cheers :)

    Im going to order catch cans fittings and lines. I’ll be running 2 -12 lines from the tops of the rocker covers, just wondering if it be worth running a line from the valley to catch can aswell?

    What brand coil overs did you get? Thinking of some for mine as can fit wider fronts with the coil overs. Also noticed they make a coil type set up for live rears now

    Yeah, it’s for a booster less setup. :P

    I’ll see how I go anyway. I’ll be running – 12 for sure but. I’m yet to finish my coolant crossover over mod yet.
