Default Update on the truck

Well I was able to work on my truck for a day while on R&R. I hooked up my flexalite dual electric fan with relay and a cool flex hose kit. It all worked out and I love the power of the new fans.

I also picked up the rear sway bar from firdaddy but wasn't able to install it due to the short time I was home. I also acquired quite a few parts for my build when I get back for good from the sandbox! Enjoy the pics.

No they aren't they are performance ones that came with the pistons from Luis.

I remember those days....

Your gonna love it, I hope to someday have a truck of my own....again.

Even though I am waiting to see what happens with my situation I am still working on it, yesterday I got all of my exhaust done until the resonators, I should have all the exhaust done today, its all mandrel bent dual 3" and steps down to 2.5" for the tailpipe section, if I ever go forced induction I will just build 3" tailpipes so it is 3" all the way.

Looks like you will be ready for 30psi now huh? Just make sure your boost controller doesnt malfunction or setup a failsafe for overboost, if I had done that my motor wouldnt have killed itself...and I knew better, oops.

Yup Jason. I should be good for up to 30 psi. But will probably keep it between 15-25 psi max for safe measure. I can't wait to build this motor especially with the bigger turbo and cams that I will acquire from Luis. Go big or go home! Don't worry I am sending the head to u bro for the cam and porting for my head. I can't wait till u finish the ls1 swap! That's going to be a beast!

Looks like a fun project

Whats the story with the flex hose kit? Do you have a part # or is it a universal one? My Datsun project could use something like that.
