This should be good. In for final product.

Now.....if I can just get my hands on a W-16 from a wrecked Veyron.

Would be nice, but i don't think the w16 would even fit, but if it did....

I'm working on them, trying to make progress worth pictures though. But i can say for what I have spent so far, I'm kicking myself really hard for not doing this sooner.

Thanks Mike, and yes DGR pulled through, and Dan did apologize for the delay with the shipping.



As for picture less updates, the engine is in the car, but it was not easy. The t56 bell housing is fairly large, so i needed to massage the trans tunnel a bit. Working on the trans mount, and once its all tightened down, pictures will be posted

^^ Very nice, and I like the intake box, may have to make a couple cause I do plan on a twin intake, but that would help cover alot of the wires too

plenty of room


The shorty headers cleared the steering very nicely, but will be modding the passenger side to clear the DGR mount

res. pics 3:

Still enough room for a larger sway bar:



DGR mounts, both sides:





I can finally use the STB that I have had for over a year sitting in my garage:




And final shot for the night:




Have plenty of work ahead with wires, PS plumbing, and some other minor things, but shouldnt be much longer. The INSTANT its ready to start, I will be sure to get a nice full HD 1080 video.
