I'll get some more pictures. I think a roof rack radiator would make this swap stupid easy. Not very hard now..

My buddy got some spindles and a beam from Nate. Unsure what look he is going for. Just wants it realiable and low maintenance.

Man I miss a day on here and get lumped up by you guys!!!

I had to order some throttle body to manifold gaskets. Those came in yesterday.
Radiator is done and mounted, all the wiring is done and tested/working. Just need to get the intake gaskets on it and go drive it!

All the stainless coolant lines are done, exhaust, wiring, fuel...that leaves... Driving it!!! I'll update with pictures for the spank bank in a few. Bus came out pretty bad ass. It took longer than I wanted but I got lazy when it was 108 here.

Just a random coolant line, I got this cool ass tool to make the bead around the end of the tube to help keep the hose clamp on.

It's 1" lines, increased to 1 1/2" at the motor. No need for all 1 1/2" lines. 1" works!

I got a good well over 1 hour of idling time today on it. Holds 180 temp sitting still for over an hour, so that means it can handle the stop light traffic...which I feel it the biggest battle with the Subi swaps, controlling water temp with no movement. Few wires need buttoned up, I've see how the KCW clean shop does things so I decided to try it out..see the alligator wire clip on the deck lid prop? Clean shop style! Just joking clean shop!!!

Going out for a tune session and gas later. Bus is fucking awesome, awesome set up, awesome!!!
