Woody,
Looks like fun.
What's the cooler for on the driver's side fenderwell? Is that it's normal position?

Also, what's the thing attached to the fuel pump plate?

Thanks,
paul

that cooler is for the power steering

the item on the fuel pump blockoff plate is the knock sensor...it's stock location interfered with the headers, so I relocated it. TBI requires an electric fuel pump.

the 350 exhaust I ran before will bolt up, so no added costs. 2.25" primaries from the headers to a custom y-pipe at the oil filter to 2.5 single main pipe with a Dynomax in the middle.

When I get to that point, I'll remember to shoot a exhaust pipe photo....

I had a shop build my exhaust and I don't like the way the passenger side pipe runs right next to the transfer case.My exits are right behind the taillights with turn outs so the lights don't burn up.
I have an aux gas tank so no room for mufflers/pipes there.
Thinking about side exhaust but not sure to do a fenderwell exit or loop down around the frame just behind the spring hanger. Pipes would be vulnerable there under the frame rail.
Anybody got any ideas where I can use my stock sbc manifolds??I'd rather not do the header thing.
Thanks,
Paul
