Dan, if you need to drill and tap a hole in your fuel rail just let me know.

The numbers look awesome, I cant wait to see it again


I didnt have to do any plumbing. I already have a stepper motor dash fuel pressure gauge, with the 0-5v 3 wire pressure transducer. So the wiring took like 3 mins.

Setting up the MS, that was another story. It took WAY to fn long doing a/d math, modifying the .ini file and getting the scaling just right, but Im now logging fuel pressure on the MS. MS and the dash gague are within 1psi from 20-90psi.

Im hoping I see fuel pressure not keeping up. Then itll just be an easter egg hunt to figure out why. I have a hunch its a combination of things, but we shall see.

So ya, def have a fueling issue, Im hoping its just b/c of the voltage drop from the gd pos alternator.



I checked the belt tension. I cant turn the motor over by the alternator pulley nut like I was told you should be able to. I mean I can until compression, then it slips. So Im not sure if thats good or bad.

Well at least now you know why injectors are maxed.

What kind of belt? Maybe a gatorback to try and see if it does not slip?

I dont think its slipping. I really think its an alternator issue.

So I said F it and ordered a Powermaster 8072 CS121 one-wire race alternator from Summit..... $250 to the door.

I spoke with the Powermaster tech and he said its capable of 20k+ rpms and that my 2.5:1 pulley ratio was perfect, putting it at 17,500 peak alt rpm.


Im hoping that fedex delievers it sat am. If not, I guess Ill get back to this next week.

Got the new alternator in today, it works awesome. However, I still have a fuel pressure issue. It just wont make stable pressure over 60 psi. booo

No updates on the fueling yet. Liklely its going to wait until winter since the inline is getting it done for now.

I did however, finally start working on getting heat back in the car. I figure it will extend my drivetime further into the fall and give me a way to defog the windshield.

Basically I just cut the blower box up thats normally mounted to the firewall in the engine bay, and added a couple small pieces of ss to make like a shroud for the stock heater core. The whole thing will mount underdash and point through the dash defroster hole.







Hoping to have this installed in the next week or so.

Thanks. I stole the idea from a buddy who did the same thing in his Fbody.

Hoping to get this mounted tonight and figure out the plumbing. Itd be nice to have defrost / heat again. I also ordered a new non A/C blower motor (which I never knew existed). It was avail through 91. Im hoping its lighter as it has a smaller motor structure. I needed a new one anyway, so w/e, it was only $20.

I finsihed up the mounting last night. The two front straps attach to the metal dash bar and the top one attaches to a little factory screw mount up under the wiper cowl. I reloacted the resistors into the plenum.

Just need to redo the wiring and run the coolant lines and probably extend the little abs plenum I made that used to mate to the top of the factory air box.

Thanks.

Just about finished up the heat tonight. Im just waiting on clamps that will be here tomorrow. Then I can just reroute the hoses in the engine bay to the firewall and boom, heat.

The actuator cable for the shutoff valve isnt super sexy but it will work until I come up with some dash panels and a convenient place / way to mount it.

Hose clamps came in friday. Managed to score some garage time yesterday and got the clamps on and the hoses swapped over on the motor. Everything works great. Puts out great heat, or none with the vavle closed, and no leaks! win







I have a few other little things Id like to check off my list then Im going to get started on the surge tank. The 8" alum tubing for it showed friday

Pictures weren't working for me last night, but now they are, looking great!



Paying someone to install parts and bragging about it being fast, is like watching someone bang your wife and being proud to raise their kids.

I got a little behind schedule the last week or two fixing other things. Mainly doing a timing chain job on my GTI (ugh).

Anyway, while it may not look like much I finally have underdash panels again. I dont even remember the last time I had a complete interior.

Each attaches with just two dzus for easy access to fuses, wiring, MS etc.

So I just need to do a few other little things inside (including order my new switch panel) and the inside will finally be done! Near epic progress. lol






Yes, the pictures suck. It was 1:30 am and I didnt feel like setting up lighting or getting the real camera.

That looks tasty

Funny, I didn't notice the car actually had speakers and a head unit when I was riding down to Ricky Bobbies in it, lol

Congrats man.
While the interior isnt really my taste, I sure can respect the work that you have put into it.
