MAP sensor. Otherwise you are ready for quality wrenching time.

Not sure if suggesting standalone map, or if making fun of me for previous post about map vs ms2e.

Forgot to mention I have a bunch of t-bolt clamps, and I got a drill and tap with the begi-s. The stainless steel line kit from begi routes everything to this bracket that I can run an oil pressure sender from. I should probably pick up some more wire though..

I have an adapter, and I believe the begi kit comes with heat wrap, but that reminds me I need new heater hoses. They're pretty worn..

A friend asked me if he was forgetting any useful tools or items in preparation to complete his car build... My response:

1) A pad in the corner of the garage for you to throw a crescent wrench at when you realize you thought you were done but have to unbolt a third of the stuff you just put on because you forgot to install a manifold gasket.

2) A box of napkins to blot your wound when you drop the angle grinder, frantically try it grab it and snag your pinky through the gloves while working underneath the car... Instead of freaking out you decide to take a break and calmly walk out of the garage and then slip on the creeper, almost regain your balance but then trip over old exhaust and bang your septum on the differential you were supposed to move/sell last week. You then roll back and forth on the floor holding your nose followed by the classic deep inhale...

3) Therefore don't forget the the stereo to drown out the exhale of immense cursing, screaming, and politically incorrect banter which promptly is followed by your dog licking your kneecap for some reason.

You're welcome
