"Awesomeness" I have a new signature.
The painless wiring switch and relay kit makes it so very nice to do the wiring.

Painless makes it painless.

I take it you got the EGR delete on the intake?

No way. We spent a week on a painless kit on a Jeep when we re-wired my buddy's Jeep with the 350 he dropped in it. They don't send you enough info on stock wiring to help you with their kits. Maybe that's just Jeep specific though.

I'm fortunate as its a switch panel, and relays. The electrical components, including the radio, turn signals, horn, etc..... work off of the existing stock wiring. This kit makes the main power, starter, fans, fuel pump, Nitrous, and water injection system work.

The EGR and cooler are completely gone.

Well its always something. The heads are finally on the motor, they have the new springs installed, and they are ported and the whole shee bang. We go to put the intake on and wouldn't ya know, the fine folks that remaned the heads broke a freakin carbide tap off where one of the intake bolts go. Of course its bottomed out, and stuck like a mother, soooooo off comes that head today, and it has to go to a shop in south Austin to get it removed. We chewed up several bits trying to get it out. Looks like several hours of labor, and a few parts I can't afford to fix it. This is on a head that has had extensive machining work on it, so its not like I can just use a different head. To be clear, this was not my guys that did this, but the idiots that remaned the heads.

:bang:bang:bang:bang:bang:bang:bang:bang:bang:kick : <<<<thats me.

Just use a long punch, and a small hammer to break up the tap, then use a pick to fish out the pieces. Then run a normal HSS tap through the hole to clean up the threads. The real question to me is, why the F would they be using a carbide tap?

We had it melted out. It was pretty quick, but taking the damned thing apart for someone elses mistake just ticks me off.

Man I love wiring, but when you do it right, it starts looking good. Can't wait to run all the damned corrugated tubing.



Also Gene from NADM sent this to me. Now I just have to live up to it. LOL
