Might be my imagination - but the whole box looks to be a little wider than standard - so it might not be as critical?

Even so- a little more clearance wouldn't go amiss!

Good eyes guys...

Yep, its a custom box, its wider and deeper, fully seam welded and from thicker steel than the ones you can buy.
Hopefully there should be plenty of room...*wink*

I also put a slope on the bottom shelf to let any rain water roll off that may find its way down the air intake !!

Thanks for all the comments guys *happy*

Cheers Brocky

Very nice job.

I welded a slant along the bottom of my bulkhead box too, worth doing providing you still have decent clearance:)

Well thats the body back from paint and slowly getting put back together. Just don't seem to have the time at the moment!! Just want to get it running and then I will get everything painted and polished on the engine. Will fit the intercooler after that.

Just thought I put some pics up as I've made a bit more progress, actually went for a sneaky drive up the cul-de-sac and back today!! its the first time I've had it out now to get the wheel arches on etc.





















Once its on the road I will start on the high boost engine, will use the quaife lsd I'm getting through the tm group buy in that. Benross has sorted the head, should be good for a few bannas...*smiley*
