WOW that is very nice! Makes it very tempting to swap it into my dads 2000 SE, but he really wants a V8.

I can't wait to see the finished product, sounds great in the video. Looking forward to seeing that thing cruising around C-Bus! Long term goal for my XJ is to put a diesel in it, but that's a long way out. Keep up the solid work man

Thanks for all the great comments guys. I have been busting my tail today.

So last night i broke off a brass fitting in the bottom oil port on the passenger side of the motor. Honestly if i had a stick of dynamite i would have blown Oscar up. He has been fighting me left and right.

So it wasnt as bad as i thought it would be to fix but... so i had to take that large plate off the engine and then used an easy out like tool.

So it came right out with little to no effort.

I mentioned i finished the exhaust. I think it looks pretty killer. So i started with this...



forumrunner_20120918_225155.jpg

I used that for mock up and was even planning on using it as is was but when i got my elbow i realized that the bend and reducer would need shortened. So i ended up with this...



forumrunner_20120918_225331.jpg

Then shortened my elbow and she fit like a charm. Then added my 45 elbow and cut it the stack to length.

Before the stack was cut

forumrunner_20120918_225836.jpg



forumrunner_20120918_225856.jpg

The stack is obviously not mounted for final because i am going to use my fender as support for the weight of the exhaust.


Then moved on to my coolant lines. Long story short i didnt feel like spending a ton of time at NAPA looking for coolant lines. So i thought what the heck i will make my own using rubber to make the connections. This is what i ended up with..

I did not grind my welds yet but i plan on grinding them smooth..


Ohh. I forgot to mention my engine idles at 55 psi.

So i finished up my coolant pipes tonight and finished grinding all my welds down. I ended up re welding both coolant lines at all the seems and grinding them silky smooth.

I decided to weld again because i didnt like seeing the weld seams at the edge of the puddles.

These two are the upper
