That *was* cool! Now I know why the head bolts are so susceptible to breaking. And they're Allen head bolts? OMG... SMH. Wonder if ARP makes replacements (guessing not, or these two guys would've used them, more than likely). And that 6 to 1 collector is pure sex. Shame it gets hidden.

Anyone notice that Jeremy ( @limequat ) helped with this build ? (he supplied the wiring harness)

@gmc4flash -- do you have a M/T sub? I was surprised to be able to see the whole episode.
(if you do have a sub, PM me, please. Thanks!)

I noticed :smile:
I sent them the inj harness, a PCM, some connectors, the up-pipe, maf flange, and some other exhaust flanges. Of course, they're not gonna show all of that in a 25 min episode.

The guys at Motor Trend are super cool. Tony called me personally to ask about the parts and to talk about his build. I get the feeling it's Tony and Lucky browsing forums like this that inspired the build.

Dammit, thwarted again! I don't have a subscription. I guess I'll have to try and find it on the dark web.

Moose... I was able to click on both of the links above and watch them in their entirety (they link to the M/T site, not YT) See if they'll work, if you haven't clicked on them.

I asked the OP to PM me (as shown above), so I could ask him about maybe posting the 2GG episode you and I have been chatting about, but no response.

Must be a Canada thing :mad: . I'm gonna start looking at a VPN.

Watched this free the other day. Doesn't work today....even with a VPN. I should have capped this when I had the chance. Honestly though, your not missing much.

Need a subscription. It's free for 14 days but don't like giving my credit cad info for nothing. That other one for the 9-7x was cable sub based and my Canadian provider wasn't listed.

Some of the Motor Trend shows went to Discovery Velocity on Canadian cable....but Hot Rod Garage isn't one of them. Add to that, MToD has been clawing back and cancelling foreign MT subs as far back as 2018 from what I've read so far. I'll keep digging.
