That intake is fucking sick.

Custom speedhut gages looks fantastic.

Thanks guys! I'm excited to get the engine back in it and get it tuned. After that I'll likely drive it as is for a bit to work the bugs out. I'll try to do a better job of documenting pulling it all apart to do the body and interior.

I'm curious, why the floor pan mod?

Most of what was removed in the first picture was a strange mixture of rust fiberglass and undercoating. In other words the stock floor and sides were rotted. When I rebuilt the floor I went straight inboard from the pinch weld to the trans tunnel.

 

I'm not sure if I'll ever do it at this point but the thought at the time was raising the floor would allow room for underbody aero and diffuser. This thought process also influenced the odd rather high placement of the fuel tank.

 

I don't have a good pic that shows it but everything (lines exhaust etc) is packaged in the tunnel above the frame rails and trans cross member. If I ever do want to go back and make aero parts I should have a good starting point.

Been slow going lately but I did manage to get the exhaust tacked up.
