Well, luckily our laptops will go sideways. Pretty cool.

I could do that. All except for the cool readout thingy and the wiring and all that other stuff.

this is gonna sound funny.. but to me the Hardest part of the whole project was probably getting the Bonnett off and back on... im just a little guy.. and I had a bigger guy help me with it.. but still that bugger was heavy...

the radiator too ka little wrestle too.. to fit the radiator, turbo cooler, and shroud all in without damaging things ...

the wiring wasnt too bad... the controller thingie came with a nice diagram.. so I then just did a design and made a harness for it... using the same factory tubing and such..

I buttoned the inside up after the video... there was also a nice little pile of wires I yanked out that were obsolete.. and theres more.. I just dont like to jerk out too much stuff at once in case i bust something that I need..

Yes. On the very few days that I've had to mess with electrical my bus gets restarted quite often.

Very cool! thanks for the update, man! I'm GONNA have to get that badass fan blade!
I, too, have used many a bottle of Brake cleaner to take out wasps and other insects of pestilent variety.

Christopher - sweet sounding engine. Nice. I need to get one of those gauge monitors - that looks to me a little more accurate than the factory gauges

Nice work! I can't wait to see it!
