No love on those images. I'm curious to see what you did. Also, what's your strategy for the old positive terminal?

Not working for you? They show up on my browser but I'm using google chrome and hosting with google photos.

I'll be completely eliminating the original wiring and running an insulated bulkhead stud on the firewall. So the positive will go from the battery to the cabin side of the stud, then from the engine bay side of the stud to the starter, alternator and fuse box.

Yeah not seeing those last few either. Seen the same image error a few times today, something with the image hosting must have changed recently.

Ever since photobucket became image hosting has been a crap shoot.

Match the manifold to the pipes, black silicone couplers and throttle body. JMO - and I've looked at what feels like over 1k under hood setups in the last week.

Your last major picture post is showing no pictures loading *sad*.

Btw, something I don't think has been asked but is relevant for a DD: how is the gas mileage? Obviously you're not getting mid 20's making that kind of power, but what are you getting on average pump to pump?

I was seeing about 19.5mpg while I was daily driving it and tracking it. I reset my trip meters for every oil change so it should be fairly accurate.

The only pics that are showing up broken are post 7 and 15. All other pics work, unless they simply aren't there at all. I tested them in IE and Chrome.

Somewhat large surprise update coming later this week but for now I have completed fabbing the battery mount plate and I'm just waiting on some countersunk hardware to mount the tie down to the plate and then I'll drop it all off for powder before I start the wiring side of things.

I made two more mounting points using the factory car seat tether locations inside the hatch to make sure this thing never budges in the event of a crash. The last thing I want is this 30# sheet of steel and the 35# battery flying at the back of my head.

Pictures on Post 50 work. I don't see the pictures on Post 63 though.

That's a big box for the battery.

I'll rehost the ones in post 63 elsewhere, I've had it with Google photo.

I'm just going overboard to ensure that I am SCCA/NASA legal and don't have to drive home to fix something after my first tech inspection. I shouldn't need the box since it is an AGM battery but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Updated posts 7 and 63 with images hosted in alternate web page so hopefully those pics are visible now.

Battery box is looking good. I like how secure it is.

Got me excited about your big news later this week.

I'll make this one short and sweet.


Perrin Rotated "Tuner" Kit
GT3076R (I need to swap the turbine housing to a 3" GT 4 bolt .82)
Tial MVR 44mm
FIC1650 Injectors (to go with my flex fuel setup)

Im hoping for 450 on E85, the injectors may end up being tol big for the application but I got a great deal on them.

I think the tuner part just means it doesnt come with the turbo or wastegate, I had to buy those elsewhere. I got the perrin kit second hand and the turbo and wastegate used with very low miles so all in all Iíve spent less than $1800.
