not much has been going on with this lately as weather has been hit or miss but i have had it out a few times since christmas. This dude wanted to film some video for youtube so i painted the hood vent black so it was one color. The plan is to finish body work on it (95% done) and then color match the outer edge and leave the vents black then clear coat it all. Car is fully tuned on pump gas and will start on E85 tune in a few weeks once the weather is more consistent. Ever since i installed the twin pump hanger my fuel gauge has not worked so ordered some ring terminals and this weekend i will pull it out and figure out what happened. I definitely want the gauge working before E85 tuning starts.









Hadnt spent any money on this thing in like 2 months and didnt know what to do with myself so finally did valve cover gaskets, upper intake manifold gasket, and throttle body gasket. Also painted the blue fittings wrinkle black finally which made a huge difference. I think im going to do the intake piping wrinkle black too. Didnt tap valve covers yet to reinstall baffles but i want to see how much of an improvement the mesh makes in the catchcan first then will throw those back in.
 




Here is the video that he shot, wish i could re do the burnout as it was kinda weak but i will redeem myself dont worry;). Interview is pretty awkward too but o well.

Thanks everyone. Yea most of the pulls he used were when i was feeling out if it would hook, there were better ones but it came out good. Next time i have the car out ill get some in-car footage.

Chasing down the cause of the fuel gauge not working, redid pump positioning using the updated pump bracket, reset fuel pump depth, and redid wiring. Also found out i was grounding out the low fuel light circuit so removed that, verified gauge reads correctly while testing out of car and sweeping float. Installed everything again(10x easier this time) but gauge still doesnt work. I need to pull it out again but thinking its binding or the finger doesnt make contact when its mounted and not reading. Also i am getting 6.5v on the circuit coming from the cluster, does anyone know if thats correct? I have not done any circuit testing but confirmed the fuse isnt blown. My sweep test should rule this out but just curious.







And been enjoying this new setup

Anyone know who makes that kit he posted about 7 pictures down in the first post? I know its a BN or BN style kit but who specifically makes it?

Its a BN knockoff, i bought it second hand so dont know the exact brand as it didnt have any labels on it.

Fitment was horrible so if you plan to save money buying knock off then plan to spend time or money getting it to fit right and look good. The front bumper would have required it being cut in half and shortened to bring the corners flush with the fenders.

Great build thread!

Gave me a lot of ideas, and confirmed a couple things for me.

Not much has changed with this thing, been driving it a few times a week when the weather is nice. Fixed the fuel gauge issue finally after some brainstorming. Realized that the sender assembly was probably isolated from chassis ground, so grounded out the pump hanger tophat and the gauge started working. Does anyone know if there is suppose to be a ground strap for the fuel tank to chassis somewhere? Have not searched yet, JW. Also filled up with E85 today and will continue with tuning this week.
