MSD coil, Hughes Plenum Plate, Hughes intake gaskets

msd coil


ok and then i got rearended which caused me to hit the car in front of me


that honda is actually fine

dent in my trunk

haha if i didnt tell anybody they wouldnt be able to tell i was hit

the chick that hit me. what you cant see is that the ac condensor and radiator are smashed in. the driverside fender is mangled, and she was having trouble opening her door JEEP POWA! and yes that is coolant everywhere

remounted my cb to near where my left knee will be, but i made sure it was far enough right so that my knee wont hit it


what my interior looks like right now.. rewiring my roof lights, trying to clean the wires up a bit, plus i blew out the lights so i just decided to redo all the wiring and eliminate the relays. theres really no need for them

rugged ridge steering setup with rusty steering stabilizer painted red

where the draglink and tie rod meet

switched my VIC wiring, i like it. but it only shows full time, doesnt say part time or 4lo..what gives?

John, relays are fairly important for proper electrical wiring.

And i'm surprised you didn't get a ticket for hitting the person in front of you because you were likely stopped too close to them...

I hope you know how bad of an idea it is to run that kinda current through switches.

Are you planning on porting the kegger while you've got the intake out?

It would make sense. How much did all the toys for the motor cost?

Are you not going to school for engineering?

You are going to need relays or you are going to burn up wires and switches if not sized properly.
