Details on new intake in the background? :cool:

Never seen a valve cover like that. How far back did you have to go to source?

Keep the updates coming!

Was the diff mount failing, or is the reinforcement for future proofing?

This is such a sweet, sweet build! I have similar goals for mine, and I'd like to do a budget combo of late Pfeba front/e34 rear bumper/Clinched Classic fender flares/custom style 5 wheels as far as looks go.

Can I be that boy-racer guy and ask what your 0-60 and quarter times are?
