Wow,

That looks incredible Rob.

Is the rest the same? Interior/Exterior etc?

I really need to pick up my game with my car, some of the stuff you guys are producing is incredible.

One question, what Plenum is that? Never seen it before. Any good? Its not the prettiest Plenum I have seen.

looks good Robbo, have you tried fitting the bonnet yet? looks like it will be a tight fit with the top of the plenum!!! hopefully the rest of the install is all smooth

thanks for all the good comments guys.

jeff: plenum will go close but pretty sure it'll fit dude. we'll see tho.

blink: cheers dude, its a Specialised Power Porting Plenum, meant to be the ducks nuts. and it would wanna be for what i paid for it. its not there to look pretty mate, its there to flow me lots and lots of power. id even be prepared to cut ur head off, sit it on some custom runners, and bolt the throttle body to ur wide open mouth, if u could flow similar figures.

Darren: cheers mate, still heaps more work to do ofcourse, the 'nextweekend' call was just a wyndup.

Mint.

The plenum would be fine if some how you could smooth over the welds. Keen to see what power figure you pull .
