Most all the pics are not showing. Have a galaxy8. Why are some pics showing, while most others are not? Seems the first 2/3 of them fail to show. Been dreaming about this ever since I first heard about it. What kind of money are we talking about here, if it is not too rude to ask? I've heard $10k all in, but then I've heard under $5k for the engine. Also heard $11k for the engine.
It's looking great. I didn't get my oil pressure sensor before I installed everything so it was hard to reach and I screwed up. My coolant line was only about an eighth inch clear of the firewall. I think the 97 firewall is subtly different, but axis told me to remove that line and that helped a lot.I haven't made much progress the past couple days. Mainly waiting for the radiator to come in so I can see how I want to route the power steering lines. One thing I would recommend is before you install your oil and fuel filter on the bracket is to break the torque on the filters. They were on so tight from Cummins I had to removed the assembly to put them in a vise since there isn’t enough room for a filter tool with everything installed. I don't see why they installed them so tight.
So far the only things I've had to purchase are a gauge pod and LED advisory lights, new battery terminals, clamps and hardware to secure the new fuel lines to the frame.
The hard coolant line has plenty of room between the firewall. One thing I am not impressed on is how close all the wiring is to the exhaust. There aren't many ways to route it due to length so I'm thinking of building a heat shield that will attach to the exhaust to protect all the wiring a little better.
For the oil psi sensor Axis provides a remote mounting bracket with line to attach your sensor to.

I had to modify the hard coolant line brackets after installing the intake clocking ring as it wouldn't fit correctly. I completely removed the front bracket and cut the rear one off then welded it back on approximately half inch aft to allow the coolant line to sit in its normal location.

Installed the gauge pod and LED wait to start light next to the gauge. Down the road will install an egt or something to fill the other hole.

Install the electrical connectors to Cummins ECU before mounting to the fire wall. The AC lines make it impossible to install them.

You'll be getting 20s soon enough. Are you replacing some other stuff while you await your radiator and CAC stuff?
