Most the vl lads throw the fuse box in the glove box. I think there is a kit for the relocation already

Interested hose setup from the front of the tubro... id be keeping an eye on it as I'm guessing its pretty flexible, I wouldn't want it collapsing under heavy load.

Interesting cooler pipe to the plenum, i saw that once, cooler wasn't mounted back far enough and extra pipes and hoses used to make the length, once cooler was moved closer to radiator the single pipe fitted fine on it's own, perhaps something to look at down the track

Where are your sparkleads running to?

Maybe with the water feed to the turbo you could buy a longer pipe/hose and re-route it back around the head to neaten it up a tad.

Looks good mate are the ls1 coils running with an box or just lt12s by itself? Im about to buy coils myself.
Did you paint the dash yourself ? what paint did you use?? Looks good in the pics.
If you can afford it i would swap the vy ss ruims for ve ssv rims and you will have a tidy ride.
Have you hadf it on the dyno?? who is tunning it?

ls1 coils are running by themselves as they have built in ignitors and their wiring is pretty simple trigger positive negative and ignition the dash was done with vynl paint and lots of prepsol and time. Just about to go back for another tune i cant honestly remember ill have to find the print out but she did do a 178km/h pass at 8PSI which was both good and bad on the 18's, hopefully with a set of 15inch wheels and 20PSI i see some serious improvement.
