Finished my 4th mount! (Took way too long)
Dont have many miles on it yet to report vibration or difference. InitiL start up has a bit more vibration than before. Regular driving no issue. Two top mounts are still stock. I'll build those during the winter.

Also swapped my water outlet and found NO crack?! I replaced the main radiator clamp with a traditional worm gear. Fingers crossed, no leaks yet.

Took 10 seconds to see how the coolant overflow would fit behind the airbox. I like it alot!

Where did you get your intake boots for the hard piping of your intake and what angles did you run , I have heard people say 45* some say 65* degrees on the elbow to the stock box?

I think i got the silicone from HPS. I got a 45* elbow, seems to work quite well matching up to the stock box.
Aluminum tube i think i got on amazon cause its cheap and i didnt have to weld it.

Was the bottom coupler just a 90 degree?Our stock tubing is very restrictive I’m not a fan of it.

What made you want to move the coolant tank?

Like the build!

Just a thought. Seems like an odd placement right in the middle of the engine bay. It allows me to shorten the 3/4" hose that goes all the way around to the back pass side.
Have to ditch the stock air box before i can move it though.
