    I started loving on this one Friday.

    Installed the new 90 amp chrome alternator. Also started loosely fitting the new fuel injection wiring harness. DEEFD283-86DA-4922-AA57-FBC0CEDAAC79BE5095F7-4DAB-43A9-831A-45AC06AF1B4D2CDCD1B4-EDB0-4FBF-B9B2-52900FAAF812

    Saturday started out seeing where I could squeeze in the IAC (left side), and the single boost unit (blue guy).AEAA90DA-9CA5-4A9A-82B8-0485CEAF5C85

    Ran and secured wiring first. Ran what vacuum lines we had. 10 pounds of mess organized into a 5 pound space.672622E7-75B6-4E6D-973E-85A8D78CC9CE

    Placed an order this morning for a air intake temp sensor from CB performance that we didn’t have. Also ordered some fittings and heat shield for the vac lines from Summit racing.

    I’ve been checking items off Dans list the last couple days.

    Body trim was a little loose and could slide around. Pulled trim, sanded and buffed any scratches.

    Made a small adjustment to the rolled lip on the back of the trim at each clip to secure them. Back together and no more movement.618DE4F5-3401-45CB-A4AA-A15B26546BD0566B4F31-65A1-42BF-975D-A0BF26C5BA4D825FD31B-F3FE-4E16-8EB4-EA5C64C1825A986558A5-BB16-4DF5-A1DC-D6412A7A3603

    Installed your batt tracker. 49B1A563-7C26-4CBF-8738-C489F8CBA80B15ACD04F-8242-4E9F-8098-AEEF5E5CA91B1467FF25-6AB8-4D0E-A14C-AA8E1697E409

    Getting the ebrake boot back under the carpet was a test in patience. Ebrake adjusted also. F1FFD97C-D07E-4D0D-9D51-2C056BBEF1D594921ECE-1263-4EBD-AD9A-5FD8252627D8

    Popped out the drivers rear qtr window and removed the damaged b-pillar upholstery. Cleaned off all of the old glue. Ready for the new piece you sent. 64C44AB9-504D-402E-8EF0-665C953858073DC47BC0-D73A-4113-952C-776CC8CD9FBC

    Ordered these clips for WW to secure your rubber mats . Going to use panel bond to install them so there won’t be any paint repair needed to the bottom side of the pan. http://www.wolfsburgwest.com/cart/DetailsList.cfm?ID=111701495

    34028CDA-27DA-4F28-8A4B-75ACA9838B6C

    Going to stop the running board trim from rattling and sliding around by cutting some rubber to go under each clip. New clips on the way.A81EAA1F-04C3-4223-BC4A-025D0FB25CC060B74CD5-7CE6-42EC-BAAE-AD37959C7CED

    Swapped out the early style clutch operating shaft for a late-model shaft due to the RLR rev6 clutch. Also ordered this bearing and shaft kit from RLR.

    Used this heat protection on the vac lines and O2 sensor wiring that run close to the exhaust. EACF1335-3475-4194-9510-89E0F90521BCF8E3F203-09D6-4109-9C50-018CC9126C1DE8A52BF8-55CB-4B9C-BD98-C9D0A19C9E0C250A87EC-E9CA-4260-A866-6CC6AFC22915

    Franz,

    Everything is looking great!  I saw a little bit of blue on the intake.  CB Performance was supposed to send black to replace the blue pieces.  Hopefully, they are in the shipment.

    Yeah yeah, just mock-up. Have the new black ones in the box.

    Did you say you wanted a cb performance alt. pulley?

    This motor would be a good candidate for one of those new billet alt stands from JayCee in black. I applaud you Franz on making all the stuff fit and look great. You are a bad man!!

    I’m not impressed with the new Empi/Jaycee stuff. Looks like it will fall apart and be difficult to fill. 1990 called and wants their billet back 😁 …and I’m disgruntled because they won’t sponsor our class 11 car.

    I set Dan up with an original German alt stand many moons ago… It doesn’t get much better than that.

    Pats has been doing a great job on the fuel injection fitment.

    Franz you could make life a lot easier for you and the next person to pull Dan’s engine. Modify the system to use one throttle body. We used one from a late model fuel injected Beetle. No syncing! No problems trying to install the intakes! Easy for you.

    Not sure a single intake set up would make things much easier in the smaller Oval engine bay.

    I had to pull the alternator, intakes, valve covers, valve cover mount studs, and the crank trigger sensor. After a precise tilt/ shimmy/ shake/ and lift it all slide together nicely.DF860614-D4C2-417A-A146-A95EF306A9DC47DE57B8-BA87-4538-B469-BEAE03F4BA77

    Just enough room to get a socket set up behind the shroud to tighten the fan down.8921CFB9-AC01-4DCD-B6EB-43C2C7DC58774AB37206-0FCC-493A-A35E-B65CD5C566FC

    Shortened the valve cover mount studs so valve covers can be pulled without pulling studs. New seals as well.

    Trans mount studs had to lose a little height to clear the new fly wheel set up.36C30CE9-E1F3-4E6C-893D-3492C5B177E5CA186882-2557-4B59-AB99-E2875E78DF89

    Mounting the new EFI  box and organizing the harness is up next.
