Man that thing looks good! I'd had to set the cap on just for a photo op.
Did you ever decide on exh? I know you were looking for stainless, what did you come up with?

I found myself a vortech t-Rex inline pump for $30. Thinking about picking it up, but I'm a little hesitant to throw an inline pump on an off road vehicle. Water + electrical current = kaput. But...it will get it going.

We almost did but its in my basement garage so it doesnt get messed up and I figure the less times its on and off the better. I think Im going to have to try some different pipes etc before I figure the exhaust out, I also have to weld in the O2 sensor bungs to them.

A9 should have no problems with an n/a 408. Can't wait for more progress pics.

Well now that I think of it, maybe I need to show that considering Daystars instructions are retarded and mention nothing about the need to do something about it.

I think you should definitely have the ECM info in here.

A9L is going to be what I'm looking for. There's also an A3M ECM that's essentially the same as the A9L.

Yeah I thought so....Daystar. Mine didnt come with any distructions but after talking to them yesterday I installed them incorrectly. Apparently they have to use the stock steel inserts (of which I didnt have). So, I ordered some from the local Jeep dealer and get to pull the tub back up off it and reinstall. Gotta love it.

^^^^I have an idea that I have wanted to do for a long time that would be great on a crawler

I popped the wheels back off today and ran them down so he could stripe them before he left. I love how they look now, a little this and that makes all the difference. It has a white and black stripe around the outside now he did by hand. He's gonna finish up the valve covers and send them to me this week.
