Thank you for the input gentlemen. Really need props back.
<br />
<br />Ran the oil lines and installed the exhaust last night. Oi what a PITA this exhaust is.
<br />
<br />Next... Sunday morning! Much to do.

What's with the tube on top of the fuel tank with no line attached?

Cap it. Short length of fuel tubing with a ball bearing or golf tee jammed in the end works well.

I hope it doesn't stink. I bought new gaskets for the top of the tank, and that little line you see with the zip tie will run down with a little filter on the end down by the diff area.
<br />
<br />Why would I bother capping that line?

I do not, sorry. I hacked the one I had up to work with my 95 chassis.

Thanks Aidan. I'll have to worry about the dash harness later
<br />
<br />Apparently what I really need is a '99 injector harness. MSM one is different.

Yes, so today we managed to apply some power. With a mix of MSM injector harness and ignition, MSM dash harness, and Maxima battery power, some things turned on.

Turned out the grey 4 pin plug of the injector harness was blowing the 10amp engine fuse, which causes the main relay to not work. So once we fix that, we should be much closer to being able to start it. I did extend the cam sensor wiring to work with the VVT location, next I'll have to wire up the GM coils in place of the 99 coils, then wire up the VVT and VICS. Then it's just a **** ton of interior and gauge wiring, along with sorting the entire dash, 99% of the lighting, and Ed will be up and running.

And we can't communicate with the MS.

And the doors aren't put together.

And the rear shelf area is bare, including all trim, seals, and rubber for hard top.

I'll stop by this week and get the megasquirt up and running. It worked on the bench and I flashed it with the newest firmware.

Yes please. With tracing down the short and figuring out all the other bits, I didn't have time to diagnosis it. His computer was saying there was no driver for the USB cable, but if you click "get driver from internet" it'll sit there searching for years.

Bring your own laptop and known working cable when you go, and it might work fine. Just make sure Ed's replaced the meter and engine fuse so the main relay will work.

Apparently I have the entire harness except for the part needed. Thought I stripped it from the dash before selling but appears not. I can do the injector harness though.

So yeah, I have a lot of wiring from a 99 if anyone needs it.
