Almost done with degas bottle. It tucks up under the cowl. A 6.0 bottle may have worked...

Side note. This is real cool and awesome to drive. But before getting into this know that it is a real challenge. It is not going to happen over a week. I have been a fabricator my whole life and this is probably the most difficult project I have ever done. If someone asked me to do a swap, I would laugh and kindly decline. I would charge 20k in labor not including any parts.

But I am so happy with it at the same time. Not to discourage, just inform.

Just about done except wiring and cosmetics. Degas bottle fit.

Made a support for the radiator hose like the downpipe holder.

Cranked aneriod 1.5 turns and rack travel out 1.5 turns. Made it quite a bit better.

Decided to make a boost fooler and it worked out much better. I simply installed an air regulator on the compressor and ran a line to aneriod. Set the regulator to 30psi and she will get right with it now. I needed a place to dump the air from governor, so I tied it in where the aneriod was on intake. No more hissing noise under hood. Throttle response is very much improved.

Going another 1.5 turns on rack and I think it will be just fine. Try it tomorrow while changing out all cab mounts with new.

The S472 may begin to go on top this week. So far I am pleased with the S360 as a single, but having the 472 will allow a little more fuel and keep the egt good.

Got the max tow gauges installed and pretty happy with them too.
