Pics and comments..
This is the obviously where the lines meet up to the fuel rail on the engine. You can also See in one of the pics the race flow ezy fuel filter.
This pic you can see one of the fuel pumps and the surge tank and yes that's next to the muffler.
Now to overcome the obvious heating problem i constructed a alloy heat shield/box thingy, using our new bender hehe
First is my cardboard template
Then the Main structure of the box all bent up.
And then the front part that closes of the box from shredded tire, i left the back open so it can vent air easily.
Also my once Levin now Trueno Bonnet returned from the FRP man! Thanks Jeff! All ready to be preped for paint!
Now ive been finishing off the engine bay as of late and after receveing my Radiator of a certain Alloy radiator maker i wasnt to happy with the "so-not-made-for-a-sprinter" like stated. So i made it fit. In there you can also see where i stuck the oil cooler. My idea is to turn this section of the front to a directed wind tunnel.
So the rad support is missing. So i whipped this up its a bit of a 2 for 1 deal. Im sure you can all work out how it works. Or suppose to work for better terms...
Now to keep the theme going of combo mods. I made up a new rad support or sorts That also holds the radiator in and the oil filter relocator.
Now the alloy rad plate was a lil shabby from making it with the power tools and the bender and folder so i thought id give polishing ago while i was waiting for things to dry. Here you can see the difference of before and after a 10min polish on the bench polisher.
After a hour of polishing and looking like a homeless person
One the car.
Here you can see everything working together
