Accelerator cable set.
Another one of those nicely designed set ups by RMW that adapts the v.w. van to the suby motor well.

Fitting the air intake.
The dipstick for the trans was to close to the pipe so a quick adjustment of the support bracket for the dip stick tube.

Pcv system complete. There is a unique "T" connector coming off the top of the crack case you'll want to hold onto.
It has 3 different sizes off each end.
I found mine by fluke and i'm glad I did.
Could have been a major pain figuring it out if i didn't see that.

Coolant overflow installed and connected.
I bought a new overflow reservoir and pressure tank as a treat to myself because they are so pretty and fresh.

Lower grill cover off. This is where the cooler is installed.
