Looks good, hopefully you got the leak fixed..
The fitting on the drivers is not sticking out the bottom.. if it is and you torque down the intake manifold.. it will break it.

AN Fittings and lines arrived yesterday. Gonna start setting those up. About to go HAM on some Hose Hustler stuff! 😅

Edit: $400 later, super stoked to get it all on the truck!

Put a few miles on the truck last night. Took my daughter to a local meet.

I am 100% confident that these trucks should have hydroboost from the factory. The pedal feel is phenomenal.

Also the 15" tce kit stops so good. I caught an older bmw on the freeway with no headlights. So I slowed down and turned mine on and off to signal his lights were off. He decided to pull in behind me and turn on an led light bar like a high beam. He got real close. So I grabbed all the brakes I could. He became very aquainted with the shoulder as he tried to swerve around me.

Looked at the intake for the coolant cross over mod, Realized I have the wrong AN fittings.

Debated on what to do with my exhaust.
It hits the long bars, and I need to fix it.
Do I build my own catback again? Do I hack into the mid pipes and add some cats to quiet it down?
Different muffler?

Stepping up to 3" may be out of the question unfortunately.
