You are correct sir

Awesome news! Either way sounds like I'll have an IC pump for about $30.

Pretty much. Just need a few more little things. All the major things I already have.

Yeah man. Great news! What intake are you going with? It'd be awesome if one of the cobra intakes(w/ the embossed snake) would work, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't. Hell, ya may even beat ibd to the finish line if your parts are together.

The main question is, when are you putting the wheels back on

I see you bought those midpipes... Can you measure up the donut gasket for me before you toss them on? I need to find better replacements. P.S dont use those gaskets haha. The included Donut ones seem crappy too. I have leaks all around my collector flange.

Also - are you sure those mids will work on a 4x4? The lightning ones i believe are different and may not route properly around the trans or T case.
