I got a bunch more done tonight, I have to run the heater hoses, run the vacuum lines, and it should be ready to run.

new o-rings on the injectors, fuel rails/ lines all tightened down, throttle body all bolted down and the wiring all done.

Everything looks great,when do you expect to finish up the motor work?


#2087

Damn… you doin this all yourself?


#2088

I will have the motor ready to run in the next day or so.

Basically , Joe helped me a lot on the wiring but other than that I did it all myself.


#2089

looking good dave, bay looks amazing


#2090

It LIVES! got the car running tonight. I didn’t have the coolant hoses or the throttle cable hooked up so I couldn’t drive it. However it sounds real strong, the throttle response is ridiculous! Its so snappy. Ill tie up the loose ends tomorrow or the next day and hopefully get it out for a ride, no hood of course haha


#2091

Good to hear. How much power are you expecting?


#2092

I would say it might pick up a couple HP but the iron heads on the car are restrictive, however this will open the door for when I have the new motor/heads.


#2093

nice work…the new valve covers do a great job of making the motor look larger as well…looks good in there.


#2094

dude sweet


#2095

You built the wire harness with mil spec everything?


#2096

Nice work Big Red, really putting in solid work.


#2097

I have some aluminum tubing I will bring by tomorrow at the shop Dave and we can start the catch cans. Call me tomorrow after noon and we can work it out. I will cut the 2 tubes and you can pick them up, scribe the angle cuts on them and I will cut the lines and finish the cans asap for ya.


#2098

Yes


#2099

#2100
