Yes. I wish I knew they were local back in the day. They did more work in less than a month than others do in two years. Lol

They mostly work on Dodge brands. Their rate is pretty good too. $70 per hour for fabrication. Others charge over $100 per hour.

Ive been welding stuff myself, and now i can appreciate the skill and effort these guys have or any fabricator in general that does quality work. I can see why they charge what they do. It takes a ton of time, practice, cost in supplies, material to come up with the magnificent work these guys produce. Like i said before bud, looking great, and keep the progress coming. Its really nice to see you're build come along.

Yeah I think, until you’ve spent some time fabbing yourself, you can’t understand why a custom catch can for $300 is a good deal. My car looks like a hot mess compared to what most of these shops can do.

Yeah I wanted for the welds to look great. I'm sure I could save a ton of money if I bought a welder and practice but it would have taken a long time for me to get it right.

True. Cutting pipes in a right shape is the most important part.

It's great to see progress being made on your "Massive boy build". Please keep things moving forward and keep us informed.

When I stop and think about my car, I realize I haven't done enough to even be considered a Small Boy Build.

Thanks. The reason I named mine massive boy was because everyone else was naming theirs big boy build. :D
They finished the intake side. Didn't expect the intake pipes to fill the engine bay completely. At least they'll get cooler air than not having them at all. Removing the driver side engine mount worked out great. TB is exactly where I want it now.

For all that work, Why didn't they put the intakes down to the side mount hole for actual fresh air?

That’s actually a good place with that victory hood. You’ll want to make a intake box though and have a good tight seal up to the hood.

Are you planning on wrapping and/or adding heat shielding to that cross over pipe?

No room . I wanted him to make a box to seal the filters around the pipes when the hood is closed but the damn fues box is on the way and can't put both filters next to each other. Victory hood directs cool air to that area so it is getting some cool air.
Yeah. I'll definitely shield the pipes .

Gotcha. Sealed box to hood will be “cool”

How hard is it to move the fuse box? I hate how much room it takes under the hood. With that in place, I won't be able to make a box.

It’s easy. Check out my thread and you’ll see how I tucked it into the corner above where the ABS would be.

But..... if I was you. I would ditch those giant cone filters and get a traditional flat filter. Go to the parts store and go look for a large filter the right size and shape and build a box around it and take advantage of that hood.

I also deleted my ABS Pump and relocated my fuse box into that space. The relocation solved my space issue I needed for cool air supply.
