    Sorry. I should have read closer. The manifold looks nice! I'm starting on a 6.0 install in my '84 GN. Still deciding on how to run the hotside.

    How was wiring up the DD cluster?

    Your car is super clean. What did you use for an exhaust system. I'm debating doing a 3 1/2 or 4" single shot. I was concerned it would sound raspy and crackly.

    Did KB do the whole hot side? Both headers and crossover? Also are you near KB or was it designed without your car in their shop?
