Thanks, I speak, read and write Dutch. I don't own a computer. I do everything on my phone, and my phone doesn't know Dutch so it's trying to change/correct every word into English. Therefore I just type in English.
Ik snap hem haha, kan ik gewoon in het nederlands typen! Gaat me toch (iets) beter af :happy:

Just a picture I took, and the complete exhaust system has been ceramic coated.

It still needs bumpers, a full interior and a bunch of others small things, but today Skynyrd drove under its own power again since about 1984.

Ach joh dat zijn de laatste 100 puntjes op de i.
En zonder bumpers en interieur is hij nog lichter ook.
Heb je weer een miliseconde gewonnen😎

Hood pins and the correct Mopar supercharger intercooler coolant pump installed.

I found out that the flow capacity of the universal Bosch pump ($150) that I had installed wasn't enough, so I had to buy the factory Mopar pump ($700). Talking about Mopar tax!

Zo dat is een klein prijsverschil zeg😱

@jelmoer: It is the pump for the supercharger intercooler system, so it wouldn't damage anything. It would just pump the coolant at a slow(er) rate through the heat exchanger system, so it would not efficiently cool the compressed air.

@Joe67 - a.k.a. Tony: Thanks! :good:

Aha dus uiteindelijk heb je anders minder gekoelde lucht en dus iets minder vermogen?
Denk dat hij sowieso wel goed van zijn plek komt😎

Yes, it would still haul ass... but I don't want to cut corners on this build. Build it once, build it right. :)
