Thanks... Yours looks alright. Might have a go at something like yours, looks relatively easy. How long did it take you to get that in?

never has and never will be on gas lol. It has has the 4.0 MPEFI engine from the EB2, does have the older intake (my bad) this is the only pic i've got at the moment (because my ute ran out of fuel and is now parked in my mates shed) so i cant get a decent one yet.

yeah definitely. Shouldn't cost to much to buy all that stuff. The K&N air filter will probably be the most expensive... do you think about 150 bucks for the whole lot?

A set of 3.7 diff gears will be your best bet to beat a VY, its a good combo for take off an cruising
