    Well, ya know, it's a lotta work to make a real blown engine, and it would have mostly been under the hood. Gotta have it hanging out like a HotWheels toy.
    *Flashbacks to watching a friend sitting inside the engine compartment to work on an LTD. :lol:

    the upright 80mm rad just protruded too much. I want the supercharger and blower to be more of the focal point

    The Max mod is consuming my bench space, haha. Last night I cut opening in the 5.25 bay to route the tubing from the 80mm radiator

    I like the progress of the project, will the engine have some other function than aesthetic? I'm jealous at your workshop, I hope that I will soon get out of my living room and make something similar (workshop space) :)

    Damn, this is looking good!

    Extra props for focusing on the original and not the crappy remake. :)

    Do you guys keep the factory fans you pull from cases? Granted some brands are decent, but I'm asking myself why I keep the cheap and junky ones.

    The irony. I finally upgraded my amps due to random full-volume 'Skrrriiiiiiich' noises.

    ha, it's such a mess atm

    and Yip, I'm ditching the scoop on the scale V8 and making the Scott Superslot fuel injector scoop from Max's V8. I started by makingthe top and bottom portions from acrylic, but getting the 45 angle degree bend from acrylic is "challenging" without the acrylic warping. I ditched that idea and made another bottom half from 20 gauge sheet metal. Which reminded me I really need a new bending brake. The two pieces are joined together with Scotchweld DP-190 epoxy. I need to make the base next, and maybe add the fuel lines.

    Hi Kim!

    Out of curiosity I grabbed this Vertical GPU bracket to see how the GPU looks in front of the Enermax chassis. Hmmmmm

    This will likely be one of the first posts in our new modding madness feature on social media. What if you used the mount to have the fans from the graphics cards at the front of the case? I still can't get over bill talking on here after watching his videos for so long before working here.

    Thank you @MLyons ...I LOVE that idea, but that space is already dedicated to 240mm radiator... Hmmmm, I'll give it further thought
