I think I need an alignment.


I got the radio and dash pieces back for the gauges today.

There will be a gauge on either side of the SCT.





Also have the3 hood on and installed some pins for now. I found some really nice ones on Jegs. For now, just the crappy ones to keep it all down.




Also started my scoop. Got the idea from my dad. Cover hood with seran wrap, then spray foam and shape the spray foam, then when you like it, cover it in fiberglass. Perfect mold. Unfortunately he was a little off on the amount 2 cans would cover. LOL

would one of those power dome hoods cover more of it up possibly? That way you might not need such a big scoop.

the middle would obviously still need a scoop. but the pipes off the outer turbo might be able to get covered up.

Not sure.

Did a lot more today, 13 hours worth. All the gauges are ready to go in tomorrow, and as you know, I have had a hell of a time with the Brakes being manual, and I had to change the pedal ratio. I said, "Screw manual brakes" today. I will be cleaning up the hydroboost tomorrow, and finishing the install.


Also, hated the snake pit that was the brake lines. I tried to use the stokers. Notice in the pic above, and below, I made new lines today. OK, ok, I will admit it, I am ****. LOL

I finished the Hydroboost install today. Had to get some custom lines made, but other than running around chasing fittings down, it works like a champ. I no longer have a brake problem, unless getting thrown through the dash is a problem. I had to remove the oil filter, and will have to find a new place for it. I will clean up all the wires and cables, but you can see I moved the FICM, and now you can see the valve cover very well.






Also installed the gauges, TS MPD and the SCT livewire. It looks killer IMHO. And yes, I know there are two missing. Apparently someone got into my garage and wanted two EGT gauges, cause they are gone. That will be remedied tomorrow.








9 cans of spray foam later, and the hood is covered. Now to sand it to shape and use the foam as a mold for the scoop to be glassed. Looks like a bunch of yellow crap. LOL

Tim, the interior looks awesome, especially when it's lit up. Can you get some closer shots of the center console?

Why does that not sound good? Is it because the exhaust is so close to the camera? It sounds like an old chevy P/u with a leaky flange/header gasket. lol Looks good though!

rofl. that would be a fun conversation explaining that one to the cop if you got pulled over.

If you want I can follow you down the street and get you another video, or get a drive by one..

Got a camera mount today. His name is Richard. LOL Went for a drive. Have a tranny issue, won't find anything but third and reverse. WHen it came on boost once, it came on HARD. However it wouldn't boost hard here because my Alt is part time working and it dropped to about 11 volts. It still pulled pretty hard though.
