In other news, Ryan Moore has asked me to attend Wicked Big Meet so that he can display my car (and others) in his booth. I have not committed yet and the plans are far from final but its highly likely that I will go.

This is amazing, I called JEGS today and talked to them about the SS fuel line that they sold me. I posted previously that they had sold me line that was supposed to prevent the fuel smell from entering the cabin. Unfortunately the line they sold me was horrible. The fuel smell is so bad in my garage that I have to open the big door and let it air out for a few minutes before I can even start working.

At first the JEGS rep argued with me saying that the hose that I purchased would never let fuel through and that I must have a leak. Thinking that the conversation was going nowhere I simply said "thank you, I appreciate your time, have a great day" and hung up.

About 25 minutes later my phone starts ringing and I see that its JEGS. The guy who I talked to apparently researched the issue on his own and found out that the hose they sold me does in fact not work well with fuel. The guy was very nice and offered to help me setup a return for everything even though I have had the items since October and they have been USED! From there I decided to order the PTFE hose from the link I posted above. I really hope this all works out, wish me luck!

Here are a few teaser shots of the fantastic (amazing) fab work being done on my IC pipes at Moore Performance. Note that these are the same pipes that I posted mock up shots of on the previous page. These specific welds are for the TiAL blow off valve's v-band flange.

Well, I dont know what "full boost will be" because I am running 9.8:1 compression. I am going to talk to Phil about it to see what he wants to do. Its my opinion that he should be making the decisions for things like that since its his motor and he's tuning it.

That's a pretty high static ratio for pump gas. Did you pick this ratio with the intention of lowering boost for road racing? I'm sure the cams and dynamic compression are more reasonable..

That seems more like an E85 ratio.

He is running a hydramist. Don't know the mix. E85 is still hard to come by in PA.

I will run 50/50 meth which helps a lot. I am also planning on GT100 for the track with a bit of 93oct. The cams are cosworth 280s so dynamic will be lower.

Thanks man. This is about ten years in the making and I hope it really turns out well. Its likely that I wont ever take a car to this point again so its pretty important that this one turns out well.

The whole time I've known you I have watched you bust your butt helping other people with their cars. Me included. It is great to see all of this coming together. Top Scoob material all the way though I doubt you give two ishts about that.

So here are a few picts of the new PTFE hose that I got from http://www.siliconeintakes.com. The hose is thinner than the stuff I was using before so it won't work with the clamps that I have (bummer). I just ordered slightly smaller clamps made for solid line which I hope will work.

I have no experience with this kind of line so I dont have any idea how it compares to the PTFE stuff that costs three times more. My first observations are that the line kinks easier than the traditional SS line and the ends are somewhat harder to assemble on the smaller -6 line. I would say that it's harder to work with in general due to the kinking but I can easily see how it's chemically superior to the standard line.

I remember making custom nitrous lines like that with the farrel and such and trimming back that stainless covering was a real PITA.

Yeah, it was rather hard to insert the piece inside the line with the farrel in place.

Those lines are not standard SS lines so they are different than what you would have had.

I am supposed to get tuned on April 28th so pending the arrival of missing items and the completion of my fuel system I hope to be finished a week or so before that.

Now that my build is winding down I have a ton of stuff for sale. Many of the items are already sold but here's what I have remaining. Most of this stuff is pretty cheap and just needs a good home.
