Something is whack with the forum not auto formatting the color of the post... maybe the mods can fix it?

I’ll post some detail shots to keep it interesting.

Our in-house crimped XRP Dry sump lines and packaging allows all of the oem undertrays and fender liners to fit, retains the use of an OEM style oil filter, and de-clutters the area around the pump allowing all hoses to be removed and installed in the vehicle without modification to the AC compressor when coupled with the AK Motorsports tubular subframe. We’ve also reduced the total length of lines significantly and retained the OEM oil cooler location.

Our custom full capacity dry sump tank, mounted on the drivers side, fully clears DRL lights, and is filled and drained without removal or cutting or any body or trim panels.

I would half yo agree with the cast on the Giggle. Jordan’Casual Observer’ is selling a AMS 12 injector cast manifold wired and plumed for the juice....I would say god forbid you had a nitrous backfire. or some other not so nice event..

BTW he is going 18 Injectior set up but more news about that later
