Quick pics. Dirty car. I'll get some better ones up tomorrow. Don't ask about the radiator support, it's a sore subject. A keen eye will also notice that is the Gen 2 motor in there now also...I'm off to the womans company "holiday" party :roll:

OK, i'll be the first to ask- why is there a gen 2 motor in it now? i thought thats what you had in the first place?

looks awesome by the way, as always, i dig the project.

Thanks all

Kville - well here is the sad truth. Back when I first started this project I knew literally nothing about Viper engines....more importantly knew nothing about the differences between Gen I and II motors. So I find the original one on Ebay and it's listed as a Gen II. So I buy it. Get it shipped. And never think otherwise.....that is till after a couple of years of research I realize I have a Gen I motor. So I spent some time finding a healthy Gen II and purchased it a few months back. Then some dude drove his ass down from Alberta Canada and picked up the old motor for more then I paid :)

Dustin - I thought I saw ya drive by. I actually got the work done last night and was out there today trying to get a plan of attack for moving all my crap into a shop that I move in to Feb, 12th.....it's not looking like a good time

Oh c'mon now. How many times have we all stared at something and that just made it worse than actually doing it? :D

Looks awsome!!! Moving always sucks, lest you have a enclosed trailor which might make it easier, proablly a couple trips though.

Great job Scott. I'll ask 1 thing though. The 1st pic makes the air intake look kinda lop sided. Is this on purpose or just the camera?

Must be the camera. I was taking the pic from a really awkward angle. I'll get some better ones posted up in the next couple days
