Momo Nero
Be interested in seeing what mods you have to do to make it fit.  :picture:

I didn't know momo made an adapter. Replace the crush can or just added to it?
Got a link to the adapter? Or part number?

Jeez. Who knew that being so close to being finished with the restore would be the longest time. So many odds and ends trying to get right. Got a custom radiation built since the one I could previously wouldn't fit because of the electric fans and the blower belt would hit. Had to get a custom one made with mounts and another set back. Also had an issue with exhaust and the air bags, with lowering would cause a problem with the QTP cutouts being 3". Now doing a different route. Seems it never ends but at the end of the day, it's what I want and the look I want

Hope. Cutting the main core support for the radiator to fit properly and with the electric fans. I hated that. But it needed to be done. I'm not doing a OEM car build. So I don't care. But exhaust going on now. Should be interesting. With the 3" exhaust and the electric cut outs, it's gonna be loud.

Finally got around to doing the exhaust. Not much longer until first start up. Slow and steady to make sure it's all done right and on my schedule but that's few and far between now a days.

It's a tight squeeze doing the 3" all the way out with the air ride, new tank and fuel pump assembly. So going to do a step down and see how that works out. Kind of a bummer but do what I gotta do.
