  1. Just gonna bump this, nobody has died yet.

    That car morphed into this (and I really miss the 19" RP03s):


    Then a few 1uz's blew up. I got, what I thought was going to be, a good deal on an LS build option so I parked the car for a bit. 

    In the meantime the old X8 sat like this. For a long time. 


    The whole LS thing unfortunately went sideways and I lost a lot of interest in the X8 and worked on other projects instead.

    A 280z got restored and my UZ powered X3 was built. 


    Recently I picked up another good condition X8, stripped old blue of everything of value, swapped it to the new car or put it in storage, and sold the shell to an acquaintance. 



    who in turn did a chassis swap with his built X8 and now the blue car is back on track like nothing happened with twice the HP as before. 



    I'm hoping to start another thread as I can make progress on my new X8 but that will be slow to come. Covid has cut off the ability to work other than what can be accomplished in my driveway a day at a time, but at least I can still get things done. 

  2. The drop vents I have mount so the vent opening is between the radiator and the engine. Hot air escapes but your motor is not exposed.

    You can mount them anywhere but that is where they are intended to go.


    Couldn't find any better pictures but these should give you an idea.
