    Piping fabrication finally completed!

    I've finally got my hot and cold sides fabricated. Any good recommendations for a local shop for ceramic coating work here in SoCal, preferably in the Inland Empire?

    Thanks! Motor is a 383 with Dart Pro 1 heads and FAST efi. Turbos are Turbonetics T04B (60mm) and running a two-stage boost controller. I plan to run street trim around 8-10 psi and my track tune is 15 psi. Made about 750HP/750tq prior to reworking the hot side to flow better, I anticipate putting down around 800 which is about as much I want to throw at the original GM block but should be enough power for the street. How about you?

    Looks good. Curious on your plan surrounding the brake booster / master. Piping looks a tad tight back there.

    Yes the downpipe interferes with the stock location. Putting in a reverse swing mounted Wilwood setup with the master cylinder inside the car with a remote fluid reservoir located on the firewall. Brakes are Wilwood four pot on all corners and currently manual. In the future I might consider going with a hydra boost if I can make it fit.
