Fuel filter with built in regulator is in my hand! Thanks Chevy for the corvette! Thinking of mounting it and the fuel pump on the beam. Not a whole lot of space to mount it. It has -6 fittings on it, once I get the fuel pump I'll figure that plumbing out.

I'm going to mount my microsquirt/fuses/relays on the rear seat bottom support. Going to make my panel out of plastic, so it won't conduct power. It's what I've always done.

I'll start building that in the next few days, I'm dragging my feet some because I had to order more of the self closing wire wrap. But will keep on the fuel lines and tie up the coolant lines.

anyone else work on their junk?

Looks badass! I like the return-less system.
Is the regulator electronically adjusted or do you need to preset the desired pressure? As for the injectors, are you upgrading those too?

updates been sucking lately!!!

Fuel rail shit is done. Got under it to remove some of the pan bolts and washers. I welded the u bolt to the pan washer, put the coolant line up in it, then strap it in. Done! It's not fancy, but it will keep the coolant lines up and secure!

This weekends weather is gonna suck wet balls.

Tweaking this morning, guess 3:15 was a good time to wake up.. Woke up wide awake, it's the weekend, it's my time!

Yeah Ben that bike is badass, now I have garage space too with my newly acquired 30x40 shop next to the house! Will see what happens, if the space cost me more headache than it's worth I'll go back to just my garage.

I'm just looking to do a few Subi swaps to cover the bills, otherwise it's my personal space! I don't really have any projects besides this turd.

You should make a bunch of those and sell 'em. I'd get about 30 of them bitches

Just pan washer and hardware store u bolts. If you want some I can make you some. Just need to know the OD of your coolant lines.

I'm only using 6, 3 per side.

Tonight is gonna be round 26 with the front air grill.

99% of the wiring is done, looks like it came this way. Smile Engine wiring is done, under rear seat/fuse block is done, just need to run some wires for the fuel pump and radiator fans-upfront stuff. Getting there, this one has been a project, but looks like it's been worth it. =D> =D> =D>

Here's a little about me, I canceled dish tv last month..best thing I've done! I didn't watch a lot, but nightly. Now that time is spend in the garage. I haven't had internet at the house since I've lived here, it's not available in this area of the country, only use my cell phone. whats going on in the world? Don't know, less i know about it, less it matters to me. I've been enjoying this small change.

Here's a shit picture but it's better than words. All the intake pieces are going to be gray/aluminum color. Black isn't getting me excited.

More updates tomorrow night!

Nice and clean Andy. I think gray accents will look better to. Where's the turbo? Smile
