    Thanks! Yes they are goodridge. I’ll report back how they feel once I get the car back on the road. I’ve always love the f series especially how it is underestimated. Still not sure what I want to do with the H22a. Would love to pick up a civic hatch and throw it in there. But one project car is enough.

      Front end is pretty much complete, I will eventually put some type of lip on it. I still love the Greddy Gracer Lip, however I am not sure if I have enough meat on the bottom of the bumper to mount the lip.



      I painted the G-Square Eyelids and mounted them on the headlights. You may also notice the license plate bumper plug on the driver side. Jimmy (AZaccord) hooked me up on a set of plugs. I will paint them black until I eventually get the car painted.

        Looks great! When ya can take a shot of the car on the ground, bit further away, semi- angle.

          I can lower the car on its wheels if I wanted to, but its less stress on my back and will make mounting the manifold and turbo easier once I get them if it’s raised a bit of the ground. But I will defintely get that shot for you once the car is on the ground. Passenger or driver side?

              Blake, the new manifold looks great! Granted the old one looked a bit cooler, they would both get the job done and then some. Although it sucks you had to learn the hard way with this one.

                      Manifold is complete and I will be picking it up tomorrow and start the bolting in process. Bought a couple more parts that should be arriving today and tomorrow and hopefully get those installed as well over the weekend. Then the car will be loaded up and send over to 850FAB (Blake) to finish welding up the exhaust and then the party begins.

                      Hopefully she will be alive and well in the next couple of weeks.

                      Completed manifold:



                      This manifold is the one 850FAB will be offering up to fellow f-series. Already on his website, so if you're thinking of going Forced Induction we now have a legit, American made product that is built with beauty and will last!

                        Looks great! And I can't even get a muffler that fits correctly!

                          Lol, Our cars wouldn't be as much fun to work on if they weren't a pain in the ass.

                          So I got the last piece of the exhaust system today: Vibrant Ultra Quiet Resonator





                          Hopefully this will make the car have a nice quiet deep sound. I'm getting to the point where I don't want to be loud, except when I want to be. Read great things on this resonator.

                          Anyways, I'm picking up the manifold from Blake at 850FAB tomorrow and will hopefully have the engine put together this weekend. He already has the flex pipe and the vband fitting for the exhaust, all we needed now was the resonator.

                            Looks great! & I loved my exhaust after the resonator install. But now I can't help but think about having two installed. I've heard of folks doing this.

                              I have 2 installed and even with just a 2.25" exhaust, the second one made a huge difference in the sound.

                                A friend had a '90s F150 that was a bit loud; I have a 2.5" Ultra Quiet sitting around for my build that I just held up to his tailpipe and it made a noticeable difference in volume! Granted, it was new out of the box so the baffling material wasn't broken in, but it was still impressive. I just wish they offered longer versions. I've got that, and their normal bottle resonator, to experiment with sound. I heard the Ultra Quiet is tricky to fit in a CB exhaust tunnel, though. My system will be 2.5" up until just before the bends for the gas tank, where it steps up to 3", and I'm not looking for a loud exhaust either... that might be tricky all motor.

                                Rilas, do you have a sound clip of your setup? And did you have any problems fitting the UQs under the car?
