How did you get the Coyote in there while retaining the shock towers?

^^ Are they real shock towers? or just notched RRS coilover versions?

I've been babying it honestly since I only have 4 miles on it, everything is 100% new so need to adjust the shocks, get alignment, etc...

I'm assuming that CJ intake isn't going to fit under a stock hood unless you have a scoop/cowl?

Also what chassis brace is that running under the TB?

It's going to be real close, if it doesnt fit thinking i may cut a small hole for clearance and so some sort of factory looking scoop. It's adjustable monte carlo bar that fit perfect without mods.

Some info about the Coyote intake manifolds you may find useful, and may make keeping the stock hood easier.

What are you using for the master cylinder?

Another one for you...what oddball combo of camber/caster plates are you using? That's a whole lot of adjustment bolts.

So what are you using for suspension? I doubt you have upper control arms with that setup(which explains how the Coyote fits) SN95 struts on an aftermarket LCA?

P.S. Looks like your dipstick is touching the shock tower in one picture...what kind of clearance are you looking at around the engine?
