      Cursed the design of the ABF (16v in general) manifold. I'm trying to mount some LS2 coils as close to the plug bores as possible, and there's just no nice way of doing it.

      If you want to shorten the sheath, you could use some heatshrink tubing to seal it back up again. Provided you can get it over the end of the cable.

      The hall is pretty tough. Anything between 5v and 12v will do.

      Installed my small euro bumps. Every single pair I've had has fit HORRIBLY up front, but this time (thanks to my trusty MIG welder), it looks awesome.

      No, just an ABF alt setup and the ABF intake. It's a PL 1.8 16v underneath.

      Do you REALLY think there is a quality difference between a $500 kit and an $800 kit? If so, that's why Kinetic doesn't sell their 8v turbo kit anymore. It was $3000.
