Interested to see how hot your fuel filter setup gets right there, that is awfully close. Clean looking setup though. All stock internals? What are dyno numbers?

yeah...the Sikky Swap kit is designed to mount on the inside of the strut tower...that literally put the hardlines right next to the manifold. In the current position, I have the lines bent away from the header. If it gets too hot, I'll figure something else out..

All stock internals except for the cam

Very nice numbers for stock, I have similar setup with GM hot cam, corvette injectors and forged internals however no tune yet. I am using the Sikky short lines kit to on the strut tower and have had to put shielding over the filter, my plan is to relocate it soon cause damn my car temps heat up. I have three fans going to keep it cool, I also have AC and all the other crap in front of my radiator.

Id recommend using fire sleeve. I used that on my setup for both the fuel and oil lines that pass near the headers.

Hahah love this forum, it's quite hilarious

I didn't get the LRB Undertray, it only fits Zenki's (according to the site) and I have no idea how it would fit with the Sikky LS oil pan...

The other parts that I have are awesome, Landon and his wife, Rebecca, make these parts themselves in Florida and they fit super well.

Very cool, I will have to get into contact with them. I have the CX kit and it sits about the sway bar so I would assume it should fit. I need to force air through my bay. I'm interested in the temps you'll be seeing on your swap. I recently moved my intake filter into the bumper, I had it like yours and my IAT's were way too high.

Let me know how that goes, and yeap - I haven't really put too many miles on this thing yet...ton of snow in CT, and the salt on the roads is not ideal. I'll keep you posted.

+1 on having the filter in a box. before the filter box my IAT was around 180. I made a quick box out of fiberglass and sealed it off from the rest of the bay. It brought the IAT down to around 110-120.
