Lotta moves in a short period of time.  I guess when opportunity beckons ... :D

Im a parts hoarder. I buy when cheap and stockpile. I still have other stuff to install, time is limited though.

Still waiting on new radiator to come in, and need to get a part to expand the nylon o-rings on the new injectors so they seat properly.

Performed some cleaning of the factory transmission and aux trans cooler this morning (blew them out with compressed & brushed them both clean).

Then decided as long as it was all apart, I'd do some cosmetic work on them as well with a 1st ever coat of rattle can gloss black enamel from Rust-Oleum.

Turned out much nicer. Just the little details that get looked at up close.

Not much time to do anything else, as I work tonight & Tuesday night. So, let this paint dry properly, then hopefully hit again on my upcoming days off.

So been busy making sure everything is GTG for the turbo/DP installation coming up... also going to have them drain and fill the PTU since they will have easy access with everything off.

New plugs...just cause it helps.
Put clamps on the vacuum lines
Put clamps on the catch can lines as they were leaking
Installed the EPP Noisemaker Elimination Pipe
Ethanol Sensor installed(I think I already posted that)

Excited to get this done!








Old plugs (10K on them)



Oh and green beer yesterday to celebrate!

So on the advice from BPD1151 and BamSHO.... I went ahead and ordered the rest of the hot pipe kit from EPP... with the bigger turbos I donít want to deal with cracked stock pipes or them popping off as the history of them dictates...

Sigh.... not much left to do...  not gonna build the motor until I see positive results from the various drive train upgrades in the works...

The stock brakes are good on the PP so no need to touch them. Probably should schedule the install of the hood vents... picked up Mustang GT style vents a long time ago (right after Nationals) but never installed them....

Guess itís just gonna be sit back, enjoy the ride for the time being...

Maybe see how close I can get to BPD1151ís record ::poke:::

Highly doubt 10ís! BPD1151 might be in the running if he takes out all the audio stuff... and not even sure our drive train which has no upgrades at the moment can handle it the power needed for a 10 second run.

But 11ís this year? I foresee a few.

Itís gonna take more than a TC to get these boats consistently into the 10ís... maybe a glory pass on a very lucky day... with a built motor to boot...

PTU and Trans internals need addressing... most likely half shafts too.
