been a while, car has run good didnt make it to dyno it yet. been working 16hr days

picked my munchkin up on the last day of school 2 weeks ago and the back up a1000 fuel pump died. previous a1000 died the week before (it lasted 1.5 years) by then i had already sent off my a1000 to get the eliminator upgrade through Aeromotive.

system needs a -12 pickup so i went with a cell and new supply and return setup -10 from the pump to the rails and -8 return

[/IMG]horrible paint oxidation, car hasn't been buffed since 1995 (last time it was plated before i owned the car) at the very least.
you can see the sunlight reflection right above the door handle just about 4" up little light blurred spot.. i know the car looks dirty right there but that part had already been scrub washed and what your seeing is all the dirt an crap in the open pores of the paint that wont come out.. heres a shot of the rear panel i just buffed

changed the upper radiator hose assembly last night. made a piece of pipe for a cross over below the charge pipe to keep some heat out of the rubber hoses.

2 separate hoses an a piece of 1 1/2" aluminiumized exhaust pipe
[/IMG]
[/IMG]

old hose used to lay over top of the exhaust cross over at the radiator end now its a tighter bend an stays closer to the fan. and the engine side has a better ark to stay farther way from the cross over pipe as well. the bar spot in the header wrap is where the old hose burned through it :(

well got some more data done on the car and found out the converter is wrong and the waste gate is too small. going to a PTC 10" vs the 12" i have that's too tight. An switching to a 60mm gate over the 40mm i have now. picked this big sum bitcch up on fb for cheap and i looked it over, its genuine, not a china knock off
