Words? Young? The **** is your deal dude?? I'm 40 if that's young to you and I was trying to be polite with my last response to you, but I see from your last two responses you get off on being a dick to people who are polite to you. Well you can **** off with your gay grey/green jeeps and your improper LS install I'm out of this BS thread!

Improper install, that's ****ing hilarious... if you had paid attention in first place then you would of known this was a JK build, and you would also know the TJ was gray.
These are two reasons why you were replied to as you were..clueless is very popular these days and thats you


As for improper install I've done more with LS motors then you have so please make more of a fool of yourself by answering why cause I'll sit waiting to hear stupidity from you

Switched to Ls2 car intake and added a set of vette covers. The word Corvette will be filled in and a decal made that says Wrangler in the Corvette font

With the trans crossmember slid back as far as it is, that left us with clearance issues with stock fuel tank...we picked up a 2dr fuel tank which allows plenty of room for the exhaust now and trans crossmembe

Started with a few bends off the manifolds for the exhaust

The trimming of upper control arm mount on pass side sure gave plenty of room for exhaust

Started on the Y pipe, made use of the tubing from the turbo exhaust
Ran exhaust behind trans crossmember instead of being in front so I had better access to trans pan

Used the jeeps heater core hoses
Was able reuse the volant air box

Got the rad hoses done, ended up using a 360* swivel housing to be able to tie to rad for lower hose since jeep rad points up
Upper hose was simple, just wish was able to be one piece vs sectioned


I also started playing with AC lines, reworked the on line to tie into condenser little cleaner, and tweaked the high pressure compressor line to route over to pass side where it will splice into a Silverado line and tie into compressor

When done will wrap the AC lines in power braid to help make them disappear

Seems as the AC system will be fairly easy, I was able to save the fittings after removing the hoses from the jeep lines and Silverado lines

Gonna order up some 5/8" AC hose and 13/32 AC hose and some crimps to tie them together

The jeeps low pressure switch threaded onto the silverados low pressure port
