Yep, I did boots on the tie rods, UCAs and strut rods. They are not the most fun to work with, but I can really see them helping improve the life of the joint. Road grime and brake dust is not good for much of anything.

Progress has been slow lately but I am spooling back up a little sprint on work for the next few weeks.

I managed to get a $250 set of Aeromotive fuel rails off of an Amazon price dip for $95. Unfortunately they come in a horrid anodized red, which would screw up my feng shui! I picked up some new injectors and treated the rails to a coat of gunmetal grey to help blend in a little better. Along with that, I have kicked off the fuel system by mocking up the TanksInc tank in the car. The JakeFab puck is close, but appears to fit under the floor.

I have some basic lines made up to the filter/regulator and will work on a rollover vent mount as well. The 6AN fuel line routes along the passenger rail [previous post] and witin the subframe connector. That was made possible by some very early planning when things went together, so far it seems to be just right.




I also finished up the installation of my Hotchkis rear sway bar, I needed to weld on the chassis mounts for it. I wanted to make sure my line routing accounted for all of those parts back there.



That's all for now!

Looking great!

Your MS3 should be able to handle your fuel pump PWM. that you want to do. You will have to use a solid state relay for the pump obviously but there is settings to control your pump PWM. I have run into some fuel heating issues and I want to try it but I have not gotten around to it just yet.

I would need an ISO 280 solid-state relay, which I am not sure exists. I will likely do PWM for the fuel pump at some point, actually, I initially planned to. For now, I am running behind enough that I have parked some of the non-essential tasks to get the car on the road. That's a project for a weekend after the car is running well.

Once they make noise they do get easier to stay motivated. I am sure you know more about the relays than I do but at one time I was pointed to one for a reasonable cost that could(or is supposed to) do the job. If I come across that part I'll post it.

I am creeping up on a fully wired and validated electrical system, which is a pretty big milestone for me. I can talk to the Megasquirt and load tunes, make changes and test some of the systems.

Hopefully these videos work:

Coil test

Injector test [all, sequential injection]

The test modes on the MS are pretty awesome. I just discovered I had a bad coil(I run 8 LS coils) and the test mode was nice to help confirm where the actual problem was.

When the engine is running you can also deactivate injectors and coils to determine if things are working properly.

I haven't seen the deactivate one before, that's pretty neat.

This was certainly the first place I stopped when I bought the car in November of 2004. The car is in a far better state today than I could have ever imagined back then!

Thank you! I have exhibited some level of OCD symptoms throughout this process, hopefully for the better. I tend to worry about things most people never pay attention to. fan


The car was rolled out of the garage for the first time on its own wheels in three years. It seems like an eternity. I expect the back end to go back down like it should once I have a full 3" exhaust, seats, glass and a battery in the car, it's sitting a bit high for my liking.

My garage is getting air conditioning this weekend so that I can get this car finished this Summer!

It's getting quite close to driving now!

Sorry for the early pictures in this thread being no longer valid. The forum won't seem to let me edit/fix the links, so I may have to restart this thread elsewhere wrench

I briefly pulled it out of the garage under it's own power today and let it get to full operating temp.

Lots of EFI tuning to do yet and I am working on getting everything else in the car asap.
