shroud does absolutely nothing....

the actual fan doesnt do much either....but nice restoration
The fan shroud does nothing? Actually its a very important part of channeling air through your radiator. And that silly propeller thingy on the front of the motor actually draws in that air.

nice, I think your lip would look good painted tho. also, what type of strut bar is that, and how does your car run w/o a fan shroud
the lip gets painted when it goes in for bodywork and respray

it does just fine without it, im in texas and havnt had trouble with overheating even when its above 90... but just in case, i have the cooling panel on and a bigger radiator and electric fan going on soon.

Is that a Redtop SR...
i want my car to be fast..... jk, small turbo hopefully next month, then another ka for the supercharger setup. I want to dyno both to finialy show whats better for your application, what ever it maybe.

is that a real nismo steering wheel?
yes, you can find them all over ebay.... its just a $60 knock off that came with a quick release, just somthing so i dont have to drive with a wheel that had a blown bag. It gets changed out when the seats and roll bar go in.



thanks for all the comments, but like everyone here, the project is never done

too many colors under the hood! lol. looking cleeeean. make it 5 speed though! or build the auto for an even cooler job.

still not a fan of those side skirts, and it needs some wheels, but i still think it looks sick. and i'm proud of you for rebuilding a "dead" car like me :-D

nope,


someone also posted about the fan shroud... running the fan without the fan shroud is BAD. but takign the fan and fan shroud off and running a decent pull fan (not stock) that is hooked up to the ignition is good
