I'm thinking of cutting off the 2.5" inlet and welding on a 2" to go straight to the turbo output.

Nice! I really dig the Full Race radiator! Did you use the stock mounting point for it?

Yeah, it just drops right in to the mounting points on the full race traction bar. And It's designed to use the stock upper passenger side mount as well. No fabrication needed :-)b I got it on sale for $255 on full races website. retail used to be $399

Got some new shoes for the whip
Image
Then I had my powder guy do his thing
Image
did the ebrake
Image
and the shift knob
Image
and the wheel center
Image

I decided to use Vbands for my charge piping but I forgot to take pics? Oh well I'll get some up

I started making a mold of my MUGEN bumper so I can cut up the copy to clear the intercooler and keep the original.
Image
Center section all flanged up with about ten layers of PVA. This is going to be a three piece mold.
I shot it with some gelcoat. I'm gonna lay up the glass tomorrow.
Image
Image
Image

I'm taking my intercooler to a welder to move the inlet down and to also change it from 2.5" to 2". since the turbo outlet is 2" this will allow me to just run a 2" coupler to connect the two
Image
I also found a way to mount the intercooler to the sheet metal of the car
with these
Image
it's a threaded rivet. you need a special tool like this to put them in but it's worth it.
Image
just drill a hole, stick the nutsert in, squeeze the handle, and you got yourself a threaded hole!
Image
I still need to take the intercooler back to the welder to get some tabs welded on
