still have to adjust valvetrain and check piston to valve clearance, but she's coming together.

Let me know if you'd like the spec's / goodies. It's going in an SA build

Looks cool! But why is intake manifold painted black? Is it not aluminum?!

What's it going in?

Awesome. So rewarding to hear it run.

Any chance you have some pictures that show the radiator mounting? I have the granny's kit and wish he included some pictures in his instructions.

T5 5 speed from 90 camaro. It's the only one with overdrive. very hard to find. probably would go with T56 if I did it a second time. Should get 375-425 hp. It's 10.5:1 compression.

Nice work, I hope I can do a proper test of my car next weekend, need to do the exhaust this week

Also how are you holding your door cards in? reusing the plastic snaps?

I made the door panels, just copied the old ones.

I am using the metal clips that came with mine.... I think some have plastic, but mine are metal. The rubber grommets that go into the holes on the metal part of the door are useless now, and probably pretty hard to find. I'll probably just put some electrical tape around the metal clip so there's no creaking or anything. hopefully you can picture what i'm saying.

That makes sense, I am going to make some for my car but was thinking I may have to do rivets or something, doesnt seem like the 4 attachment points would be enough
