Added hood cowls this morning. First time ever playing with an angle grinder.... it's addicting haha

I'm not 100% satisfied with the outcome, but for about $35 I am thrilled (that includes the price on the harbor freight grinder haha). If I ever get around to painting the truck my dream neon green, the screws will blend in much better and give it more of a finished look. For now, it will stay the way it is.

20170803_094124.jpgImage Enlarger Double the holiness

20170803_121815.jpgImage Enlarger Fully installed and back on. Now, the electric fan should be able to easily push the hot air through the engine bay while crawling and steep inclines.  

How many more louvers can he put on... Hahahagrin

Head an exhaust leak... Turns out my exhaust manifold gaskets were REALLLLYYY bad lol. Learned a ton about TPS, MAF, dashpots, and o2 sensors in the process! Also swapped out my IACV finally... after 1 year of trying to find the part at a decent price.

 

Write up on the exhaust manifold gasket here!

Got the hydro assist done, and a complete top end rebuild on the engine... then it was stolen. Will be selling the rig and closing up this thread. Look for the next 4runner project!
