Andy, looks good and now where are you going to mount it you can mount on any angle, may need to move your throttle control lever on top to a different postion nothing major.
Paul has a manual transmission his idle should be 500 rpm

Hey Andy,
I'm sure if I look back at your pictures I'll see my answer but I'm extremely short on time right now. What is the radiator & fan under your new air filter for?
Thanx, John
