Had some clearance issues between the turbo and my 4 core rad, had no way to plumb the intake passed it's plastic tank.

So I got one of these

The 4 core is almost new, guess it will go into the Cutlass

Yea I know but I can't/don't know how to resize from my phone, besides changing my camera settings before I take a picture
If you're on Android there is an app simply called " Photo Resizer" that I've been using for a while. It's free, easy to use and it works.

I like this build idea. What are you planning for the trans and rear end?

Well I have a th400 in there now that would do the trick, but I also acquired a 4l80 from the truck the donor motor came from. If a controller is in the budget in a couple months I will definitely run the 4l80. I plan to keep the stock 7.5 until I blow it up lol.

As for my phone... on my new S7 its way easier to resize pictures as I go, so goodbye photobocket
