Looks awesome, nice project.
What exhaust you using, I see you dropped motor in without the manifolds.
No way that would work when I did mine, I can't even see the exhaust on the passenger side from the top, no way I could have bolted something on once the motor was in the car.

No experience with Hooker, but I love my TTI.
I had a complete TTI system with the 340, bought new TTI shorties and head pipes for the 5.7 and it bolted right up to the existing system.
It's a tight fit in these E-bodies, those manifolds aren't coming off without pulling the motor.

Nice! I got to give you credit for being able to find and ship a car, build and resource parts all the way in Norway. It's hard enough to do here in the US.
