Thank you!! :)

here is a little exhaust clip of it so you guys can hear it, I had just open headers for the longest time just put the exhaust on last spring

Here is a old video of it with just open headers which I love way more then the current exhaust set up personally

We will take it one area at a time I鈥檒l send you what I know馃憤 The links I send over are exactly what I鈥檓 using, they are good especially if you are on a budget build, there鈥檚 nicer things out there but these work perfectly fine at a Low cost

On the fans you will have a little bit of shaving on the sides you will need to do which is very simple and also a little bit on the back side aiming towards the pulleys (I had too at least), also the 4 ears that stick out on the sides all have to be cut off because these fans will slide down in these little grooves or slots on the radiator for a Perfect snug fit 馃憣

Cooling

Also I don鈥檛 know if you are putting a trans cooler on your ride, there are many options to choose from but this one works perfect keeping my trans no warmer then 180 on a 90-100 degree day, best investment I made for my transmission

As many links as possible as I'm working on an 87 right now. My first concern is cooling.
My engine stays between 160-180 on a 100 degree day, my trans stays at 180 or less on a 100 degree day, if you look at my pics I posted with the one with my steering wheel, gauges, switch panel, that switch panel you see let鈥檚 me control my fans, I normally always keep mine on, the bottom two switches you see on my panel are low power and high power, you want high power both switches have to be turned on together, my girl stays nice and cool engine and trans wise trust me馃槑

Right to the inside of the front core support between that and the radiator, plenty of room there behind the grill, really good air flow and pull power with these fans with this exact setup馃槑馃憤

I guess since no one else is posting their rides I'll bite... no V8 but a stripped down 2.2L, rack and pinion steering, tubular A-arms with delrin bushings, Celica seats, handbrake, lower half of the dash removed, toggle switches for lights, foot switch for high beams....

Very nice ride!馃憤 Thank you for sharing, keep up the good work with her, they all don鈥檛 have to be v8s, she has you鈥檙e own personal touch to it, my respect goes to you for sticking with the 2.2馃槑馃憤 Definitely clean!! Good snapshots with those photos, I love that shot underneath the hood and those switches you got set up馃榿
