Sway bar still in the car as you can see it in that picture.

Ive always ran my IC piping like that under the sway bar for the clean look.

i will not be running a front sway bar, this car is gonna be for drag racing and since its going straight im not worried about the sway bar. by removing the front sway bar it gives it better suspension travel to the rear.
im located in the bay area, ca

i could of cleared the sway bar if i ran one. but i think this route is way better then cutting up the pass side.

weather was pretty ugly today, it was pouring here and there. so i couldnt do much since my car is outside.

when i was pulling the motor out, we got into a lil accident and hit the a/c radiator. so today i welded it up.

prep'd the area to be welded
Click the image to open in full size.

and then welded shut

i also installed the trans cooler onto the a/c radiator while i had it out of the car already.

Great build so far, glad you're keeping the GE internals, this is awesome motivation for those thinking about spending too much on a GTE swap and not keeping or even building the GE. Perfectly good motor!

im a budget builder, and if the GE has been proven to be almost the same as the GTE bottom why not? the only thing what the GTE has over the GE is they have alot of camshaft options.
