Here'a a V8 I did today, this is how they look without the weather seals.


This is what happens, bent rail and bent injectors. I also broke the thermostat housing when the prybar slipped :doh I was using the special GM puller tools on it too!

I actually came in here to post that link hahaha.

The DI delete is crazy badass. Sux that normal hotrodder isn't going to have the resources or skill set to hack up and shorten and intake/oil pan to make that happen. Plus the custom DI injector plugs as well.

You could just leave the old di injectors in there and forgetaboutem.

Great fab work by that company though! What I could screw up with unlimited funds and time on my hands.

EDIT: I wouldn't be mad at someone plastic welding / epoxying injector bungs to a stock intake..

One click through the comments on that link confirms my choice to stay the hell away from Facebook.

Cool concept and excellent fab work there though. I assume going into a GN that it will retain the turbo?

Speaking of 4.3 Turbo's saw an Explorer ST in the grocery store parking lot Sunday Morning. Did some googling and turned up this article. Lots of references to the Typhoon in there, which I thought was entertaining.

I had the same thought. A sheetmetal intake would be cool though.
