I was looking at his new gauges and was like. Man didn't he just sell some of those?

i took some sexier pictures but they are very blurry and you cant make anything out of them. epic fail! :(

on a serious note - this wiring is badass. all wires are labeled, all fuses and relays are standard, wire and insulation quality is top notch. very much worth $170 + shipping i paid for it!

I also chose to not deal with wiring. I sent my grungy stock harness to Jason McCully for a weight reduction, cleaning, rerouting for a drop in fitment for the 5.0. Everything comes back labeled, plus a mod/relay to run the stock fuel pump, detailed instructions, etc. Worth the $200 for me.

just ordered oil pump and that $200 trap-door oil pan insert. **** is coming together!

edit: motor has been refreshed (gaskets, seals, chain, etc) and the only missing piece at the moment is oil pump.
