Been picking away at finishing up the charge air piping and airbox mounting. The big Donaldson air filter assembly fits well! Just power steering hoses, fill with coolant, bleed brakes, exhaust then it's driving!

A napa 8698 hose. With about 6" cut off the smaller diameter end. Im not happy with how it fits though. Its being forced a bit in a way it doesnt really want to go. I may end up just doing silicone and aluminum tube

Well.. update time! its basically finished and been on a couple trips around the block! Dang its fast! still needs a tune tweak and timing and iq adjusted. Exhaust is finished with a 304 ss downpipe that a welder buddy tigged together for me and an MBRP catback for the xj. Sounds pretty good!

Its been insured for 2 days now! Its pretty quick! I will be taking it to Malone for them to tweak the tune for some smoke control (its pretty bad). Other than that it's great so far!
A colt stage 2 cam will most likely be in my future to bring down the egts a bit. I can get past 1200f really easy on the highway.

Went to Malone tuning the other night for some tune tweaks! Great crew! I think the xj is officially finished now
