      Oil cooler was hung over the weekend, parts were removed to backpurge and finalize welds, and the intake was notched to make room for the passenger side headlight.

      What are you using as far as an oil cooler setup? Been looking into one lately so I can track the car without worrying about temps as much.

      Small Earl's cooler to a sandwich plate above the oil filter.

      Put the brakes on too!

      He's always a huge help! I can't weld so he welded the bracket for the oil cooler and tacked in the notch on the intake so the headlight can fit.

      Is there an oil drain on the front of your oil pan or is that for something else?

      That will be ground down and sealed off, it was the oil drain from the VF kit that was previously on the car.

      Surprise!



      Hardlines by Swoops



      Swoops!!! Crankcase vent tubes, twins of course.





      Better shot of some of Swoops handiwork:



      Coolant lines sorted



      Aeromotive A1000 pump mounted. I hate red.



      We haven't forgotten about the car! The exhaust is almost finished as well...

      Tyrolsport Greg is a great fabricator/tuner/guy, I'm very lucky to have him working on the car. The seats are Recaro Sportster CSs.

      Indeed he is, always speaking in the third person when he works on a car... Thanks man. Though from what I hear, it'll still be much slower than your Jeep.
