I know it may sound like sacrilege, but you might want to consider punching a couple vents in the undertray so that any possible leaks or water that runs under the hood has a place to drain. Definitely do it behind the radiator, IC & oil cooler so that you don't allow the pressure there to escape tho.

The fab work looks very nice, and everything seems to fit well.  Did you have use of a sheetmetal brake, or did you do it with a couple 2x4's and clamps?  Either way, it came out well man!

Yeah, a couple holes might be a good idea. The sides were bent up with a brake and the rest was bent with a piece of angle iron and C clamps.

Well I drove over an hour to Andrews house to put her up for the winter. Everything went pretty well until it died and wouldn't start right in front of his house. Lucky me, we just pushed it in the rest of the way.  I'll have to check the logs and see what happened. One way or another it was a fun drive. I also want to say thanks to Topless for all the help with the tuning so far.

It was a beautiful day for the drive down there.  I am glad the car died right in front of Andrews house and not a few miles away.  That made it getting it to its winter home that much easier.

Today I was thinking about that drive to Andrew's house in the video.  I found myself driving my LS1 car down the same roads, but making sweet open wastegate 20B sounds...  I think I really need to get back to this project.
