This isn't your first rodeo is it?
How about a few pictures of your other projects?

I never thought of taking project pics until this truck. When doing the 55 210 (which is pictured here) I did not even know these forums existed.

I've been trying to think of a way to build a air box to have the coolest air possible and found a air box that is exactly what I was thinking of building. It took a simple mod but I i did not have to make a box, which saved me a lot of time.

Does the intake extend through the inner fender or is it pressed against the rubber grommet?

Just wondering how it will stay sealed when the engine is moving as you do wheel stands. :wink:

The tube goes all the way through the inner fender it sticks out about 1 inch. Its totally sealed off from the engine compartment.

I'm sure another compliment won't swell your head like an Engineering degree. You've impressed a lot of people, myself included. I see you displaying qualities of exceptional perseverance, knowledgeable skills and quality craftsmanship, and I'm sure at some cost and personal sacrifice. I agree with them whole heartedly, you've done good. Bask in the glory.
