    Nice, keep the progress posts coming. I'm so glad my house didn't sell or I might have taken you up on your earlier $25K price point. :-).

    Things are happening.

    Engine and trans system are mounted.
    Cooling system is finished (except for where I plumb in the HVAC system a bit later)
    Fuel system is 90% - still have to make the bung that the return line goes to and weld it to the tank.

    Billet! Pump mount in process:






    Pump mount (insert "tada!" sound):



    Bench fitting test - perfect!



    Frame fitting test - perfect!





    She's tight but everything clears and has room to vibrate and move a bit:






    I'll get the final piece for the return line done today and hopefully tacked into place on the tank (tank is a bitch to install/remove - may have made it a tad too big up top but it fits).

    Once that's done it's exhaust system time. I have the stock Nytro system in hand and want to see how much of it I can use. Not sure it's going to be quiet enough, though. I want this thing to be whisper quiet so what muffler finally gets used is still a mystery.

    Thanks

    Messing with the exhaust system. Looks like I'm placing an order with SPD here in a bit. Can't use squat off the stock system except the header flanges.

    Four J bends, a 3 into 1 collector and two feet of stainless tubing on order from SPD.

    Got the stock muffler installed half way.

    The stock mounts are two on each end and one set on top, one set on bottom. I cut the bottom mounts off the exhaust end and made a new upper mount. I'll stick with the two per end setup and knock out another one tomorrow.



    The two back mounts get screwed into inserts in the frame:





    Here's it's new home:



    I'll do two ears off the tubes that the front pair of mounts will attach to next.

    Any information regarding the exhaust bushings you have on the muffler?
