Yes it adapts the factory plenum to the intake.

Unfortunately you will still need aftermarket fuel rails.

Just have the oil feed and return line to weld into the oil pan then off to the dyno! Should be tuned Monday next week.

What do y'all think so far?

I know what it is, I was asking how much $ you have in the build minus the price of the vortech

I haven't really kept track. I figured it was best for me not to keep a running total so I didn't stress myself out. Haha. But engine alone around $5300. That's not including supercharger, inter cooler, fuel system, or any other supercharger supporting mods. And does not include all my suspension work either.

Well I just didn't go cheap. And bought mostly all new except for my teksid block. That was the only used part. Everything else is brand new. I could've saved money in some places by shopping around.. But whatever. Haha

If I do then it won't be seriously. I might just attend a car show and pop the hood. Not expecting to show it off too much. Hard to have the good open and let people see the beauty while I'm hauling *** going by.

Quick question Cole, I know you did a lot of searching on engines. Is there any difference in a 98gt block and a 2002 gt block?

The block itself should be the same pretty much. You can use it interchangeably.

For example I'm using a Teksid block out of a 1998 Cobra in my 2002 GT.

If the block is a 4.6ltr 281 then you can use it. There are tons of variants of it. Be careful what you choose.
