I actually started on this right around this time last year and completed it mid-winter time (Jan '14), I just never posted any pics on here. Anyways, as you can see I installed a set of Scott Rod Fab engine compartment panels and hid the fuse box, most of the wires, eliminated the washer bottle and relocated the battery. I also customized the JLT intake tube by removing the male bung that sticks out and filling the holes (PCV system is removed and catch can installed). I also shaved down the "JLT" logo. When the engine was out I had a set of custom grind cams installed, re-did my fuel system to make it full return (e-85) including a new Fore hat, 465 pumps, ID1000 injectors and etc

All of the custom fab work and paint was done by my father-in-law...so a big thanks to him!! anyways, onto the pics....

custom made bracket that uses factory holes that I used to hook up to the cherry picker to lift up the front end of the car to remove the engine out of the bottom

another fabbed up bracket that was made to bolt directly into where the lower front control arm normally goes. This way the engine can roll around freely by using the wheel dollies but not scratch up the freshly painted K-member.

Quick vid of initial start up. After final tuning from Jon Lund and a lower idle speed the lope is more aggressive sounding than whats in this video

Holy hell! Car looks amazing man! . That engine bay is sick but the under body pics tell the story, much respect for having a car this tastefully modified and clean!

Unreal man, that is the cleanest and most well detailed terminator engine bay I have seen. The little touches here and there add up and the overall out come is over the top..
Great job
