Excellent! I bet its a super fun truck now. Not to mention it will be ultra reliable at that power level. You won't have to worry about destroying your torque converter, or sending pistons through the oil pan. Just a nicely built, daily driver if wanted. Great build! I can't wait to see what's next!

Well did some cleaning up of the floor pans. Before, during and after pictures. Will be putting down some dynamat, add an e-brake and some new carpet.
Also picked up a isuzu trooper sway bar to upgrade my stock one, in process of cleaning it up and powder coating. Grabbed a miata parking brake and will be mated with lokar universal parking cables. More to come...also new intercooler coming up for LUVLEE.

That looks great! Which paint did you use? I've been considering using a bedliner for the floors in my Lemans.

I actually used High temp paint lol, Its what I had available on hand. I also had bedliner on hand too but I wanted to use some dynamat so I didnt think it was going to stick well to bedliner paint. But I did wanted to used bedliner paint too.

Well the paint is put down, then cleaned up to add some fatcat dynamat to lessen the vibrations. Lining up the carpet for install. Doesn't seem like it's going to fit well but going to make it work. Thanks for reaching 400 followers on FB! Come and follow to see what's coming up for LUVLEE! #4G63LUV

Just finished up the carpet install, not perfect at all to my liking but it's better than 40 year old carpet. Bench seat is back in, miata e brake installed (cables will be installed later). Coming later will be a new intercooler, bigger of course. Upgrading sway bar that was recently powder coated red. More upgrades to come and can't wait for spring time.

Here is an update on LUVLEE #4g63luv. Updated to a k&n filter from the spectra autozone filter. Intercooler grew a bit so needing some more fitment. Couple of pictures and before and after. Runs and drives super well. Has issue installing my trooper sway bar, might move the sway bar bushing locations to make it work; that will be later down the line. I will start throwing some videos once the weather starts cooperating and car meets not being cancelled. I hope everyone stays safe out there.

Looking great! Did you notice any difference in the performance with the other intercooler?

None that I noticed but since its dyno day have not driven it much due to winter and now Corona. So decided to add the intercooler since I had some time and had parts on hand.
Probably going to work on some door cards and add some dynamat to the doors as well, just to fill in more time.
I still need to figure whats leaking on my Eagle summit van and drop the trans on the talon...definitely things to do but I just want to drive them haha

Took this quarantine time and cleaned up the interior a bit and did some door panels. Bought these aluminum panels but did some of my touch ups with some vinyl and dailydriven bolt washers. What you guys think? And added some decals to the tank. Stay safe everyone.

Looks great! I still just love the look of that dash and gauge cluster. The extra vinyl you've put on the door panels looks awesome and definitely helps pull them into the look of the rest of the interior.

He needs some HRCS decals Jeremy!
