    Lee mentioned to me that I should relocate the intercoolers to the side pod area.
    It's obvious from this pic. that there isn't enough room to house the intercoolers, so he cut open the side-pod area are built out the rest with simple sheet metal. The quarter panels have also been widened and front wheel arches designed for more suspension travel. During my visit to Noble Automotive, I saw this car in person- the wheels were 20".
    Notice the front end is different and the doors.

    From Lee this morning-

    But don't forget mine was wider also for bigger wheels, it was cut and the wheel arch flares were extended at the rear and the nose had the flares removed and the curve modified to allow wheel clearance, in reality you need new clams.

    he has one on each side, I saw it on the display car at Noble automotive.
    they are too large to fit the standard body.

    we've made a decision on the wheel and tire sizes-

    18" x 10" f 270.650-18
    18" x 12" r 300.650-18

    ordering tires today and will modify my current wheels to fit (good thing about 3 piece wheels).
