Yup, but I’m pretty sure that’s a made to order item so you’ll have some good lead time, or just wait on trackslag… I’d slap an eBay 100 unit I there for the meantime if you NEED it asap… but I wouldn’t spend the dough on arm or IE for a vortex xl cause you’ll still end up getting a bigger pipe down the line - lol.

What’s wrong with the current? It’s cracked or something?

It has a 440 badge on the hood, but I honestly didn’t even look at it close after seeing it’s listed for 62k lol.

I’m dead set on a ‘70 Cuda if I ever build one, and it’ll have modern hemi power if that project ever actually happens.
Makes more sense being a 440. I don't know too much about older hot rods but the mopar valve covers looked familiar haha. That price is ridiculous

I do have the itch to LS swap something, but not a Cuda.

Literally anything else is considered a Cummins or big turbo LS swap candidate.

Also, if the right wrecked Mk7 becomes available a mid engine kart is on the wish list as well. I’ve contacted people and asked them to request a buy back quote, just for them to wuss out and never even ask their insurance company.
Cummins swap or maybe an OM606 turbo diesel is next on my list of builds once i finish my e30. That is, if diesel is still available at that point... might have to start making my own biofuel lol

I currently have an eBay special. It leaks slightly at the downstream connection but otherwise fits fine. I have the standard housing vortex for now. Not sure I’ll upgrade to the xl. After the dbv2, response is much more important to me than 20-30 extra hp.

So it's only 2/3 MK7, but finally buttoned up the is38 swap on the MK3 TT. Should be right around 400hp with the methanol.

Couple more pics that someone might find useful. I had a race shop weld in a methanol bung into my CTS intercooler exit port. I'm also using the stock washer tank behind the front left wheel as the methanol resevoir.
