Looks awesome

About the only thing I would change is the location of that PS res, not that its messy or anything but because everywhere else is so clean it sort of sticks out, maybe you could look at relocating it or must mounting it lower down near the chassis rail

This is definitely a benchmark engine bay for simplicity, well done!

I had a picture of your engine bay saved from before you did the blackouts and it was to my eyes the cleanest engine bay I had seen so far. The only thing I though was odd was the oil filter sitting in the rear corner of the engine bay but you seem to have moved it now.

I see we have the same radiator.

What exactly have you used on the intake pipe and valve covers, it looks great

Thanks I moved the filter because I was getting pressure loss with it higher than the engine and drainback issues. The material I used to cover the intake manifold, intake, valve covers etc Was a product called "Neefy wrap". It's a carbon fiber fabric. It's not self adhesive so if I did it again I would use a self adhesive material like 3m dinoc. I Love my Pwr radiator-works like a champ-never sees above 180 while cruising and only have to use the electric fans in traffic. I like your car also-clean and simple.

I might use some of that material on my intake pipe. Where is your fuse box located? I really think I need to get mine out of the engine bay now

I relocated the fuse box to the drivers side fenderwell in front of the wheel. Its a bit harder to get to but it cleans up the bay nicely.

Do you have any issues with it getting wet or have you got some form if weather protection. I am thinking I wilk open up the body loom and relocate the fuse box to the glove-box.

Not currently. I think if you search my username there is a build thread from a few years back. There may be pics in there. No problems with moisture where the fuse box is-I try not to drive in the rain but when it gets wet there are no issues.

Try routing the booster hose under it instead, plug off or finish removing ac ports and a sparkplug cover. Other than that beautifully done sir.
