Well, John, he didn't deny that's what it was. So you must be right.

Screwed around with the TPS. Settled on a GM sensor of some kind. Need to find a connector for it and figure out which wire goes where.

Tracked down a few connectors for use on the cam and crank position sensors. Still need one for the coil though since the one I found has like 3/4" on one wire and that's not enough to make me feel comfy.

Gotta grab a couple fittings and a braided turbo drain. You know how expensive braided 5/8" hose is? Makes me sad.

Got the gauge layout figured out. Using aluminum panels and just going to bolt them down that way. Then I can start getting the wiring for the lights, blinkers, etc. done and start concentrating on the engine.

ive always wondered something, i wonder if you would be able to use braided wanter line from home depot?

I mean since its meant for water, i dont see why it wouldnt seal right or anything. Plus its super cheap!

For normal situations, I use an oil grade hose, which is fairly cheap from my distributors. But my turbo manifold hangs the runners near to where the oil line needs to go, so I have to use something that will handle heat on the outside of the line better. Hose would get brittle and crack early because of the heat, where the braided line lasts a lot longer.

So what you're saying is do it right the first time.

Interesting concept :lol:

I too did a braided line with AN fittings.
Looks good and gives me peace of mind.

I've been putting together the fuel system. The shiny new ID2000s are in the manifold, as well as the rail. I'm configuring the lines a little different this year for convenience of packaging, so I'm having to do a ton of new fittings and lines. Damn this stuff is expensive.

What are you going to run for base pressure with the ID2000s and what idle pulse width do you think you'll have?

I'm thinking I'll probably run 40psi base, so just 80psi at full boost. Probably a total of about .9 to 1.0 ms idle PW.
