      Installed the Quick Performance rear end before it got too hot. Gertz supplied the suspension.

        Finished the paint work on the engine compartment and firewall. Installed the engine, hopefully for the last time.

                Installed the factory oil cooler and lines. Started on the front suspension.

                The lines in the back are for the blower cooler and reservoir.

                        Great progress. She's lookin' REAL GOOD!

                        Just in case you're not aware, the Hellcat (cars) have an initial heat exchanger (for the blower coolant) on the driver side, about the size of this oil cooler, and then a primary heat exchanger in front of the radiator, about the size a an AC condenser. At one time I was going to use all factory parts, but I've decided to find good quality aftermarket stuff that will fit my car as precisely as possible and have the inlets/outlets where I need them.

                        Did you custom make that hood or is it available to purchase?

                        Did you glass in the 4 rear vents on the hood? Can't quite tell from the pic.

                        No vents. I think I'll cut out the front.

                        Gotcha. The AAR style on VFNs site shows to be cut open in the front and then the 4 vents at the top rear to be cut out already as well. Did you get yours without the openings?
