    I got my 4.1 StageII motor back from Dan at DLS quite awhile ago, and i have been getting quite a bit of emails and pm's on it, so I figure I will start this thread and keep my progress here instead of doing the email/pm thing.

    Then test fitted my headers and turbo

    Mounted my injectors and fuel rail and new MSD distributor cap

    got my wastegate welded to my Headers, downpipe flange mounted to my turbo, custom wires added, new injector harness

    Right now i am prepping the engine compartment with Duplicolor Trim paint on the inner fenders. What a mess this is doing it in the car with the wirning harness in. I am also upgrading the my steering shaft to the one from the Jeep. I will show those pics later. All I can say is the wife is well pissed with all the spraying I have been doing, cause when i walk in the house, a woft of that comes in with me:redface:

    This weekend come hell or high water, the motor WILL be in the car..........

    I got them from a guy name James 4 years ago. The company was jgangracing. I tried the old link I had from his website but it no longer exists. I am not sure if he is still in business or not.....

    That thing is sweet! Do you still have the part number for the MSD cap? I have a bunch of wires for the HEI style cap but the current one is the old school type. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    Duplicolor Trim paint is awesome stuff. Once it dries the finish is very clean and factory looking.

    Thanks

    The ones I like are the ones that have holes (need no holes) and the ones with no holes, have the angle in the corner (I have no AC box).....Dammit :mad:
