|Rebel442||I talked to Brad about a year ago, last news was he was having a kid. I have a feeling that put an end to any jeep plans. I usually run into once a summer or so, so I'll try and remember to make him come back with an update.|

|SkylinesSuck||Just curious what you had compared the OBX header to. I just got mine today and I'm a little disappointed with what I got. Looks like TIG welds on only the outside, the collector flange on the inside sticks out into the flow a lot, but most importantly the thing weighs next to nothing. The runners seem like they have very thin walls to me. Maybe it's because I'm comparing it the manifold I had on my Skyline (also a straight 6) but it seems kinda flimsy and hastily thrown together to me. Trying to decide if it's worth it to try and clean it up with a grinder on the inside then have it coated and install it or not.|

The forged bottom end combined with the modified head and high quality top end components will allow me to safely run high compression, increased redline (6,000 possibly), and nitrous without a single worry. I'm sure that setup will be plenty of power for my stripped down, lightweight jeep
As for the job, I couldn't be happier! Absolutely love working from home, and I finally feel self sufficient and confident. I can see myself being with this company for many years! Thanks for asking my friend
I will begin to post more frequently in the upcoming weeks as progress begins.

like ive said in the past, leave it n/a. it will be plenty, simplicity is king on and off the road. run some 93oct and call it a day. sell the supercharger and recoup some money.
theres nothing like having a responsive naturally aspirated motor that can take a beating and keep on winning.
keep us updated buddy !
hows the new job going ?

I haven't talked much about this yet since my main focus is getting the damn stroker back together, but there will be many discussions about power adders soon to come.
As for fuel management, believe it or not but the stock fuel pump, fuel lines, and rail are more than adequate for handling the increased flow. As for the fuel injectors, I already have a set of oversized injectors to handle the increase in fuel requirements. Here's my prior post regarding the fuel injectors...

The good news is that most of the parts are already purchased and awaiting install, minus the camshaft, roller rockers, and chrome moly push rods. So things will be in motion hopefully soon.
