That's awesome man. Do you have any pictures of how you mounted the AC condenser?

I don't have any close-ups, but I'll snap some for you.

Essentially the condenser is held with 2 bars on the top connecting to 4 ears on the cradle that holds the radiator. These ears have holes in them for a bolt to go through. On each side of the condenser are 4 rubber pads. 1 between the ear & the condenser and another between the condenser and the bar that goes across. A bolt goes through the bar & ear on each end.

I should have posted to this thread awhile ago but didn't have all the info together. Now that I've PM'd it out, here it is.

This will completely replace all OEM lines with SS line & AN fittings using the OEM oil coolers. No fitment issues with A/C. Be sure to cover the SS lines with plastic loom at possible rub points.

I am using an ACT Street Strip with a HD pressure plate. It holds up great and was advised by a few members with experience with them that it would be fine to around 420whp. I don't drag or launch hard very often so it should be quite durable for my power.

I will add that I recently got some retuning done in the lower RPM range and transitions. Dave always does a great job and is super sharp. I had a few issues with down low loads causing it to buck.

She's smooth as silk now. SpeedOne taking care of business once again.

Congrats again for building a very clean MB.

If i am to understand this right.... you seem to have just pulled the motor and freshened it up with new gaskets/seals? did not crack her open?

Correct, it was not opened up. It was just as easy to pull the engine since I was replacing the transmission also. I wanted to rebuild, but due to a combination of funds & reasoning, I chose not to. The engine has perfect compression and ran like a champ.

I do plan to rebuild the engine & port it next year. It will be nice since I know the entire setup works perfectly as is. Bolting up a fresh engine after this fact will be much more peace of mind. I'm easily looking at another 30whp on the same boost, which will be a nice bump.

After a rebuild, it's water injection time. I'll be shooting for high 400's. I believe I would be happy with 480whp. We shall see.

Sounds about right, +30 with a port job - nice work as always

Where are you going to use 480 on the street?

Thanks... LOL.... good question. The thing is pretty nasty as it sits. Another 100whp would get pretty nuts. I guess it would be for those occasional track nights or run-ins with a big boy

XLR8 or IRP -- can you provide some more info on the ceramichrome product / process? Search doesn't reveal anything but the finished product looks very sweet. Great job so far.

Yes, I am very pleased with the Ceramichrome work of IR performance. It took about 2 weeks to get my parts back. They were returned with comprehensive instructions of inspecting, installation and even caring for the coating throughout its life.

I spoke with Ihor by simply emailing them at: [email protected]

It really does make sense. A quality polish job is equal in cost or very time consuming, and essentially purely for form. The coating is two birds with one stone. I had the UIM, LIM, Water pump housing, and filler neck done. Speak with Ihor on the price, as I don't want to step on their toes.

Overall, I couldn't be happier with the service. I typically look at people's faces when I pop my hood as they say WOW, is that chrome?!?.... Then I give them a nice speal about this heat coating that is oh so pretty.

Link to Ceramichrome information? I assume it is just a nice shiny ceramic coating but would love more details and can't find any

Wow, Nice Build thread. I just saw this.

I've seen alot of new vmount kits out their for about 1k cheaper. But the do not come with the 4ply hoses, ss tow hooks and ps-cooler that comes with my kit.

Since those 1.2k to 1.5k guys are posting parts of their kits maybe I should do so too like you did and make a couple jaws drop.

Thanks again for chosing RE-vmount.
