Don't know. It's the only thing left on there from the original car. It's a VIS brand hood and it fits nice.

OK, I'm not sure if I missed it (read the thread) but what IC/RAD setup is that? Looks very interesting and I think coupled along with my 99 spec bumper could yield some good water temps with all that airflow. Is it a custom setup?

Is your car up and running now? What kind of temps have you been seeing?

NPR intercooler, unknown aluminum radiator that came with the car. Water temps stay at about 86* C. Haven't really monitored AIT while driving the car. Yes the car is up and running.

W...O...W...!!!

buddy, I LOVE IT!! Congrats on restoring this BEAUTIFUL car!!! I love the "sleeper" look of the car! Very stock on the outside, but the engine bay...not only does it look SUPER CLEAN, but it's got some really tastey mods! Congratulations again! Post up some more pictures and maybe a video when you get a chance?

Cheers!

It's the larger one. It has the 2.75 end tanks. I had the end tanks cut and raised about 2 inches so they would clear over the radiator.

The engine bay looks great, very clean and well thought out. It's crazy how much room deleting the ABS frees up. Hmmmmm.
