Well, I ordered a bunch more stuff for the next round on my truck:
  • Zeitronix - Multi Gauge (Red Digits, Black Bezel)
  • Zeitronix - MAP sensor (50 PSI / 3.5 Bar)
  • Zeitronix - ZAVT-1 Warning/Trigger box
  • Zeitronix - 20' Harness for Oxygen Sensor
  • Zeitronix - 8' Harness for Pressure Sensor
  • Zeitronix - USB to Serial Data Adapter
  • Zeitronix - Misc. Items (Sensor Bung, Sensor Plug, Connectors etc.)
  • Threaded Style IAT Sensor w/ Harness
  • Eaton M90 Eight Groove Keyed Pulleys (2.8" & 3.0")
  • Supercharger Pulley Puller
  • Snow Performance - Water/Methanol Stage 2 MAF Boost Cooler Injection System
  • Snow Performance - Misc. Items (Bulkhead Fitting, Hose/Nozzle Mount Adapter)
  • Ford Racing - 90mm Mass Airflow Sensor (M-12579-L54)
  • Aluminum 4" Air-Filter Adapter Flange for 90mm MAF's
  • Bosch - 42lb/hr 'Green Giant' Injectors - 100% Flow Matched (Part #0280155968)
All of this stuff compliments and/or expands the abilities of the other items I purchased on Tuesday (The Zeitronix ZT-2 Controller, wideband 02 Sensor & the Pro-Racing Package software from STC)

It should be a good couple weeks for package deliveries!

Yeah, it should be a fun adventure!

I still have to sort out a fair amount - but the research has been interesting so far.

I'm just a 'low-life' electrician. lol



Well, to be 'slightly' more specific, I'm a Master Electrician (licensed in numerous states) and also a co-owner of a midsize commercial/industrial electrical contracting company (approx. 30-40 employees) that routinely completes electrical contracts in the seven figure range (water treatment plants, pump stations etc.), with a yearly company sales volume in the 8-10 million range. AKA - I just sit in an office now, and pretend I know everything - lol.

But really, it's more that I just love to modify & upgrade my truck - and no vehicle I ever own will be left stock!

I sure wish I had the same funding you do. Big stuff for me is off until after I get out of school.

Remember - Yearly company sales volume, versus actual company profit, versus personal shareholder distributions (aka - my salary) are completely different things.

Like I have said before - I do have a stable & well-paying job...but really, it's just a matter of me enjoying my toys.

Nah, i get it. I used to own a Landscaping business (which i recently sold) so i understand the yearly profit compared to what i made from it, were two very different things.

Well some items are starting to show up now - daily. I'm fairly certain UPS & FedEx know to stop at my place every day! LOL


I've been checking out my SCT Pro-Racer Tuning Package - There is a fair amount of steps I have to do just to get it activated & ready for use! I have to mail the signature page for the license agreement from SCT before they will activate my tuning software - This software package comes with like a 14-page contract that you have to agree to!

I also just purchased another complete training system for the my tuning package to help me learn at least some of the details in both the software as well as overall tuning theory. It's from 'The Tuning School' which is the sole partner with SCT for custom tuning training.

Yes Sir - Then once everything is installed, it's heading directly over to my local SCT certified tuner to dial everything in during a full dyno/custom tuning session.
