Its coming along quite nicely :dancenana:

Just waiting on a flywheel and some header gaskets and I can throw this thing back in the car.
This weekend Im gonna start on the fuel system.




Im gonna swap the bearings in all the idlers before I put it back together.
Wanna take a guess which bearings were bad? Thats right, the double bearing idler from Reichard Racing...the most expensive idler of the bunch (not pictured) High dollar parts are always the first to go, and that REALLY pisses me off. :mad:

Still waiting on the Fore Triple Pump assembly, but the Fragola Fuel line, fittings and fuel filter should show up today or tomorrow. I just got the 3 GSS342's yesterday for the hat.

This is quite a lot of fun working on something different than a Marauder. :headbang:

Im still undecided on the Coil covers. I had them done wrinkle silver in hopes of matching the car (which is does quite well) I may do another set in wrinkle black....to match the Whipple :D

Nope. Its on a stand tucked in the corner. I NEED to get the Cobra mobile cause I have a Marauder waiting for an Eaton Swap I have to get done.
Ill tell you this:
After I took the drivers side exhaust pipe off the header, a nice stream of oil has been slowly leaking from it.

Thanks all.
I also had the IC reservoir done in Wrinkle black. It was polished aluminum but had some scratches. I really dont want any chrome or shiny stuff under the hood this time around.
