Damn this fuel project is taking a long time. I'm about 9 hours in so far. Lots of little stupid details that are big time sinks. Finally ran the return and second feed line.



Tomorrow I have to figure out how to make the dual pumps sit happily in the tank. I may have to bend up the baffle. Not sure. I hope I will have enough time to do the cam gear and water neck removal.

OK I finally got the pumps to sit in the tank happily. It took some bending of the fuel pump stalk. I do not recommend dual intank unless you like frustrating yourself for hours blindly trying to fit the stupid pumps in the sump. The smart way, of course, was done by hingstonwm using an external pump.

Oh and FML because teflon AN hose requires special AN teflon fittings. I figured this out after spending 3 hours trying to get the ******* to stay on the hose. Dead in the water.

I ordered the fittings overnight from siliconintakes. Let's see if they come through.

I guess that I will put on the new hotside while I wait. I can set up the idle and cruise fuel by uh ductaping my wideband on the exit for the downpipe. Yes I have no bungs on DP yet because I needed to wait to see what slashcut fitament would be.

At this point, I do not think I will make it. Some little problems. It's always stuff like one stupid bolt that takes hours and hours. I am depressed. I will do my best to have the car ready but once more, it looks like my car will miss my own dyno day event :(

Sigh.

Fuel pumps turn on only for a second
Gotta do fuel lines with Teflon compatible fittings
check all the fuel fittings for leaks
turbo-manifold studs


Here's some shitty pics of my ceramic coated manifold. I think it looks pretty ******* baller with the shiny compressor housing. I'm gonna wrap it all with the DEI lava wrap though. This turbo makes the GT30 look like a GT20. Neat.

Not only are you letting everyone else down, but most of all, you're letting yourself down.
T minus 71 hours.
The 5 shots of single malt Islay scotch penalty still stands. I'll bring the scotch and the shot glass, you better bring your game face.
