Don't forget a little time spent modifying one exhaust manifold and building up an entire new one for the other side Plus the odd little spacer here and there. He's being a little modest, there were a few little brackets that he machined up. He has some mad skills for that. Most things would be manageable by the average guy, but it will just take longer to track down supplies and do the work at home, unless you have a really decent shop.

It's a nice clean build to see in person, can't wait to see this thing on the road!

BIG props on this

haha alright, manifolds took the time, i can agree to that, mainly the right side, that i fabbed from scratch... but modifying the left side X5 manifold actually took like a hour to finish.
