There has been a new iteration for the intake side of things, it did get a fresh lick of paint (Battleship Grey by Krylon)

And speaking of intake...

Test fit the SRT4 intercooler to see. Going to be using a different intercooler that's a little bit smaller tho. Took inspiration from rotary's and V mount setups because of the shape of the bumper.





And plans are to go with a Mishimoto MMINT-UZ





Need to mount it properly with mounts to the underside yet but should approximately position to be like this when all is said and done





Also made the 'executive decision' to relocate the washer fluid reservoir into my trunk and mount an oil cooler and remote mount my oil filter to the area behind the drivers side fog light. Also going to turn the fog light into a 'funnel' for the oil cooler.










Still need to make up the oil cooler hoses as well as duct the back side of the cooler to get the air to travel through it cleanly. The downside to this setup up, it may require bumper removal to change the oil filter.

As for the washer fluid, the tank is being placed in the trunk with a smaller capacity tank from a 80's ish Mopar truck, then just going to run fuel vapor hose the length of the car to the front. MAY make the level sensor work so I can keep from having to bleed the system on a regular basis. Presently on a push to get a transmission back into the car so I can get everything else sorted out and get back to driving this thing and making further refinements to the various changes I have made.

My one parts car gave up its engine and transmission. It's a 2000 3.2L, so I will be rebuild/upgrade this engine. Mostly fresh gaskets, bearings and seals with mild boost friendly enhancements (drop in compression, larger gap in piston rings). There will be a build for that later.







Yes, I split the engine from transmission on a pre cut pallet, and the decision to split FROM the torque converter was because I had never heard the engine run, was told it 'made noise' and had pulled the heads off it 2 years ago so I wasn't certain that the engine would turn over. Upside, it does spin over easily so it should be a decent starting point for a rebuild.
