That looks like really tidy work,
The radiator support where it ties to the intercool is an especially nice touch

On a side note. What leads are you running on the FJ? I ended up running ones from aussie that cost a tonne and yours are a lot longer.



I used Top Gun TG4548 - can still get on ebay

The guys who did the work are no amatuers. They used to be fabricators at Speedtech so the quality of the work is very good. I'd suggest they've probably done a ton of similar jobs in the past where they have done the same setup.

Check out the work they are doing on that Matt Gaskin Skyline in preparation for Lead Foot Festival!

Some things happening.
Exhaust getting done in the 3 inch stainless mandrel bend variety.

Fuel system getting sorted.

Turbo oil and water lines.

I'll do a proper update when that work is completed.

Really impressed with the direction this is heading.
Going to be very cool

Always nice to see updates on this. Never heard of this Kaizen works before but they sure do a tidy job!

Where are you mounting your fuel pumps? Looks like we're both using the Carter 4070 as the lift pump too.
