The symmetry of this build makes my OCD happy. Pretty incredible build.

have they come out with exhaust flex joints that don't fall apart in an hour?

i have really good luck with them, no issues, I think people bend them really hard to install, and when they heat cycle they fatigue, ill be pulling them apart every 30 days and plotting health as my friend says the same thing, well 20% of people that look at it say the same thing, but out of the last 10 or so builds i have done, zero issues.

i have a bunch to do, it has no wiring or fuel system and no plumbing, but i wanted to work it all neatly around what was going to be physically installed, so now that we are here i can do the large list of small things, it should sound pretty incredible

also got hotside, coldside almost 100% sorted, started on coolant hoses to rad, temp mounted a dual fan i have with zippies till i can build a nice cookie sheet shroud for it, threw in 90% of the ecu wiring, plugged in, routed, starting to just get it in there and see if its in the way of shit while i move forward,

yesterday dropped fuel tank out, prepping for the pump upgrade, hat mods, lines to surge tank, wiring triple pumps, fuel feed and return from engine bay etc etc coming up next.
