    is there any reason you can't turn the intake so the throttle body is at the back of the motor, i realize you would have to reroute some sensor wires, it looks like it would work anyone know of any reason it wouldn't. i'm using a gen 3 motor in a project and it would be helpful for clearance. Thanks

    As long as your Intake flange bolts line up, your coil packs fit (if you are using the oem setup), linkage, fuel line and hose rerouting is done, your engine wont care as far as operation goes.

    Is it going into a boat?

    ya I think it will be more of a short burst of power type unit, with aerodynamics like that the ass end will likely get light at speeds over 80mph lol

    Add some weight in the bed, maybe install a spoiler too.

    Actually, I have been watching for a spoiler from one of those Dodge Daytona trucks they fit pretty good without any modification. not so much for function just because I think it looks cool.

    Have you finally taken Cotton Mouth out for a spin? If you have, I'm sure you've been turning heads.

    i was thinking of not putting a engine oil cooler on project, because of limited room and the way it will be driven it's probably not needed. so would it be better to loop the ports together or cap them off? thanks
