Got the fuel level sender wired up properly and the gauge responds.   I'm not fully sure it's WORKING, but it responds, haha.    Working on some budget to get the fancy fuel cell and a new steering rack, but mostly I'm waiting for it not to be 100* outside so the car is fun to drive again.

If I'd known of the Barra when I started this car, I'd have one.

Well hopefully I'm getting a decent bonus at work, and I'm about to start a pay job for a buddy to build an 1100+ (target) RWHP 2JZ 4th Gen Camaro (LOLz), so perhaps with those funds I can buy the fuel system/steering rack/etc. that I want for the car this fall without feeling too bad about savings.   Not to wonder off topic, but I try to keep 12+ months of cost of living funds in the bank in liquid form in case something happens at work, so I don't like to cut into that for "fun stuff".    Good rule to have.   Right now I can cover my salary for 12 months if the wife has a job, but I can't yet cover both of us losing our jobs for that long (though honestly I'm sure I could get a side hustle to pay the bills mostly anyway).   It's just a good idea.

Anywho.   I did fabricate exhaust on Friday before I left for the weekend (family had a T/F bike race in Ohio, we won!   new track record!   aka standard operating procedure...).    Since the exhaust is true dual (no crossover, no room that I can find so far) it sounds... weird.  It dumps out just behind the rear wheels on each side, so I only really hear one bank when I'm driving.   It sounds fine outside of the car, but just a bit funky inside.   It's also louder now that it doesn't dump under the car, though I think it's got less drone.   We'll see, I may change it or add bigger/more mufflers underneath somewhere.   I forgot my engine was offset to the passenger side about 1" so I was super confused when I mirrored the exhaust and it didn't fit on one side.   Whoops.    Anyway, that's sorted and it's nicely symmetrical.   I'll get pics shortly.

Next is fixing my fuel level sender (and by that, I mean hooking it up).   Then figuring out why I don't have boost control and continuing work on the tune.   The VVT is really annoying to tune for in VE, BTW, not sure if I'd mentioned that yet.

If you ever need help understanding CAN, I'm pretty good at it.  :)

Yeah, those are looking better-then-pro.

Those are looking really good in the progress so far!   Nice work sir (I expect nothing less at this point though!)

Well the full fuel cell they do has a safety bladder, a pickup "basin", foam, is E85 compatible and has the surge tank.   I have trouble fitting enough pump in my tank to do what I need long term.

Iím eyeing a Fuel Safe 22 gallon cell with a Radium Engineering Fuel Cell Surge Tank (FCST) and dual surge pumps.    I really want one.   I really donít wanna spend 2200 dollars.   Oof.    Itís so nice though, really compact and well done, plus Mustangs arenít exactly safe from rear impacts (this is called self justification!)

Posting this so I can roll my eyes at myself in 4 months when I buy one.   LOL
