    May actually, truly, finally be ready for a dyno tune

    My car has been "done" for months now, but I kept finding little issues or things that I wanted to improve before I spend money at the dyno. Well, I think I may actually be done.

    The last little hiccup was that I overran my FPR. Well, I am happy to say that the Aeromotive FPSC took care of the problem. What's better than a fuel system that can flow 700lph? One that doesn't do it at idle. (Ignore the nasty wiring, that's just temporary)



    Another thing that bothered me was the proximity of the front manifold and the alternator and fan wiring, so I made a heatshield:



    So, the final product. Just a little wiring cleanup left to do.



    For anyone who doesn't know, Jackhammer (Tackhammer on here?) essentially built this car from the ground up and apprenticed me along the way. Couldn't have done it without him.

    Should be interesting... it is built to make some pretty serious power, if I've got the guts for it.

    It's SO clean.

    I love the amount of space you have.. I wish my engine bays were that empty. =P

    It really is a pleasure to work on. I have a beater 94 TT that is mostly stock and I can barely stand to touch it anymore. Going speed density, moving the fusebox, and using an aftermarket coolant reservoir really open up the bay on the passenger side. Harness tuck and cruise delete make the driver's side look tidy.

    I love the mezziere reservoir:

    If I had to do it all over again I would clock the front turbo down. Oh well. If it's too bad I may need to wrap that part of the manifold.

    Originally I didn't have any, but supposedly it is beneficial. I went with simple, short intakes with a single bend each.

    A local guy. Everything was done locally with the exception of the head lift fix by Ray.
