Good work with the guide.
Just a point, steer clear from Lukey extractors/headers, there not worth much at all (there exhaust are awsome though).

Oh and here's what I did just for a bit of extra info:

Image
I mounted the relay/fuse to turn the Thermos on under the coolant reservoir.

Image
I ran all the wires under the little 'lip' of the thermofan shroud.

Image
You can see some of the wires going to the thermos. The rest goes to the little temp controller which I have mounted under that shiny little cover, and also to the A/C.

i dont think the pacemaker 4480's are tuned length. when i bought mine i asked the dude i bought it off if they are tuned length and he said they wernt, unless he was mistaken.

Love it if they were tho!

Yeah dont be mistaken in to thinking that just cause the pipes go everywhere that they are all the same length, I assumed that my JMM race series were untill I got out the measuring tape and measured them, the primaries vary in length by about 5".

Nah the JMM's are much neater looking, the comps go all over the place for a reason (you'd think).

according to headersbyed.com if your headers vary in length by more than 4 inches it can affect the performance somewhat.

I still wouldnt assume that they are tuned length. any chance of ya givin some measurements of the headers and secondaries. just cut a peice of twine long enough to measure them and be sure to measure the same spot on each tube, ie I measured the outside of the bends on my JMM's and got 19,15,13,14.75,14.25 and 13.75inches respectively for runners 1-6. 6"difference is huge!!!

Just a question about Headers/Extractors. I have got HM headers on my EL at the moment. They seem to work and sound good on my EL. But I have noticed that they look similar to Pacemakers is that true and if so are they just a generic Pacemaker then. Cheers[/b]

Wouldn't mind seeing pics of what people can expect their mods to look like. such as:

what the pacemaker 4480 and 4499's look like
the XR8 snorkel
etc...

that way a lot of ppl can see what mods they can get, and if they already have them (i dunno if i have an XR8 snorkel, cos i have one, but i dont' know if its that one)

Well you know how the EB/ED tube kinda tapers down to a small point (to fit inside the hole) just as it enters the airbox, well the EA is full size all the way through (and fits over the hole).
