Oh, ok. Did you end up with a Borgeson box? If a Borgeson will work in my Duster with my TTI headers, I'm gonna be bumming you to get a bracket made for me....and a part number or ap for the pump! laugh2

I will be buying a Borgeson here soon.

I know of at least one A-body running a 6.1L, TTIs and a Borgeson box.

Only taking 3 vacation days too! boogie

Looking to get most of it wired, but some stuff may be delayed from Watek. It'll be a hodgepodge of progress.

No recent progress other than fighting with the Vintage Air system. It seems like it just wants to be in a different spot all together. I am avoiding the holes in the firewall and creating a workaround, which may be adding a little complexity. It seems like some of the bent tubes are bent improperly and are giving me fits, their whole grommet firewall, connect-four firewall plate is a terrible design!

Is the Vintage Air unit the brand that uses electric servos instead of vacuum? I want electric servos on whatever I put in the Duster. Enjoy your time off for Christmas! Santa

I love this build and finally seeing it come together. Really like the dual scoop hood and AAR spoiler you added to it. Keep up the great work!

Not much "done" but I am pecking away at progress.

After fighting with the Vintage Air a bit and their assembly process I was finally able to get it in there in a manner I accepted. I wish it was better, but it will be as good as it gets. I ended up mounting it differently so that I did not have to drill through the smoothed firewall. I installed the dash frame so that I can reference it for wiring and component locations [Fuse box, relay box, ECU, Wideband controller, etc.]



Not much to see here, but I wrapped up the hard parts of the rear brakes. I have yet to tackle the parking brake or hydraulic lines.



The upper control arms I ordered were backordered around 4 weeks and held me up from putting the car on the ground. Regardless I assembled what I had of the front end, Hotchkis lower control arm pivots, strut rods, and sway bar. I have the Hotchkis tie rods ready to go as well.



The power steering bracket I designed was wrapped up as well, so far so good. I was able to use a factory Hemi 6.1L drive belt. I have some interest in the bracket and may sell a few.

Thanks!

I know the car doesn't look very different but it is a substantial improvement over where it was upon disassembly!

Not much excitement in this update, it's been nothing but wiring for me lately.

I started with a Painless harness, a EFISource Hemi harness and a Vintage Air harness, they are all being well integrated into one complete vehicle harness. The Painless fuse box turned out to be more trouble than it was worth to me. Many of the circuits I would either not use, or it would be mislabeled, which I found annoying. I also needed room to put relays, quite a few of them.

So I took the perfectly new Painless fuse box and cut it out! I replaced it with a Bussman fuse/relay box that I have wired from scratch. I am nearly complete with that part of it and am working to ensure I account for all of the new circuits I want to incorporate. Vehicle speed into the ECU, oil temp, check engine light, 2-step, flat-shift, traction control, datalogging, etc., etc.






The idea is to trim the new fuse box in using the original glove box inserts. In my head it will turn out very nice with a semi-functional glove box with a nice tucked in fuse box within it.

It looks like a war zone but anyone that has done a completely custom/EFI harness like this likely knows how it goes. I hope to be able to put power to the car by the end of the month, but that may be a stretch. I have yet to upfit the gauges into the gauge bezel, which will hinder some of that progress as well.

...eating the elephant one bite at a time and working late in the garage after my toddler goes to bed!

Goody, you have no idea how much I appreciate your build thread. You've done almost exactly what I've been planning, though I plan to paint in Limelight or similar and use something like these rims: http://www.etmags.com/lt_iii.html
because I loved the race AAR Cudas and these are basically Minilites in 17" size.
Seriously, your build looks just like my Word document where I've been storing up every tidbit of info I can find. It's daunting to know there are so many things to do, but at the same time I love the fact that every car like this is going to be a unique expression of driver and builder.
I'm looking forward to keeping an eye on your thread!

Thanks,
Ryan
