lol I know...he ordered an ARB bumper for his 80 and they sent the heep snorkel with it??? It goes in right at the fresh air vent so nothing has been cut...so it's actually a pretty cool idea...:lmao:

and wow...420/3 speed case...thats a bit loud! lol

350...SM420...Hmm, think you could pop a wheelie :hill:

I know with the 2F 1st gear in the SM420 is pretty useless for on road...Can't imagine how 'short' it would be with a built V8 :eek:. Seriously, can you pop a wheelie? :D

Oh, and nice 40 - very nice!

Always good to see some "new" old metal on the trail. :D

I bet you'll have some more leg room in that than there was in the 45 too.

I'm driving it like a :Princess: I'm afraid to figure out my gas mileage :eek:

Nice and low...I actually was merging into traffic and was waiting til I have a mile or two open...then i though...wait....I have a V8...vroooooooooom...I was passing people...:thumb:

I really love the toyota I6's and someday I'm sure I'll have another I6...but this is pretty fun...lol

Got the bumper on, had to do some trimming around the PS box. My work put some nutserts in with a hyrdraulic machine or something so the bumper is stout... 4 Grade 8 bolts per side should be enough I hope.

Off to the junkyard today to get some ramhorn manifolds and then buy that walker Y-pipe to get that exhaust routed better.
