Anyone around tonite? 02/03/2012 Need a hand in the garage
« on: February 03, 2012, 03:22:39 PM »
I'm dropping the motor back in my FC and getting out by 1 person is easy but getting it back in is far more difficult. I need someone to man the hoist so I can get it bolted in and such.

not much stock to it, so there is a plethora of room as you know


I live in royal oak right next to 12 mile and rochester.

beers will be had,

got it in, had a friend of mine come by and help me operate the lift. 95% complete now, just gotta fill with coolant, re-install exhaust from header back and about a half hour of electrical connector installs.

I'm thinking of going to a single exhaust because i cant install it by myself, anyone interested in an NA racing beat cat-back? I'm just gonna make a new single exhaust soon I think.

right now I'm rockin a stock 88.5 radiator (cap is on the radiator not the neck for some reason, but it was from an s4 car) until my friends at Griffin hooked me up with a sweet deal on this!


Crossflow 24"w x 19"h overall
2 rows of 1.25"
16" Spal fan included, I think it moves something like 3000CFM

Just gotta weld brackets for stock mounting location and then reduce the bottom right outlet from 1.75" to 1.5" w/ a port for heater core. Probably not going to weld anything for that just use some pipe and a hose.
