Got some more wiring done, still have a little bit more but just trying to find time to do it. I still have to run the power to the fuel pump and the hot from the battery. And need to redo my fan setup and the relay for that as well. As much as I like the dual fan idea, I think I'm going to revert back to the single 16" fan for sake of being thinner. And weighing less.
Wiring went well today... For the most part.... Its not done yet but its layed out ready to make most of the connections. Ive still got to run the feed to the battery and fuel pump but its getting down to the nitty gritty.
I'm getting somewhere now. It should be ready to go in as soon as the bay is ready for it. Still a few small things to do to that area then change the rear main, bolt the t5 and all its glory to the old girl and send it.
Edit: for the record I hate those stupid t-less t-handle valve cover fasteners and they will be going in the garbage can soon.
More prepping and side tracking. Decided today that it would be a good time to swap the doors fenders and all the other nonsense work I had to do before plugging the new drivetrain in. Also tucking the wiring like I did on the old one. Tried out that vht wrinkle finish paint on the air cleaner and valve covers just to see how it looked. And I like it. Looks a lot better than chrome and really old aluminum
I thought you can still keep it in "3" and stay out of OD.
I did that all summer to keep the car from bouncing between drive and od with light throttle changes. Drove me nuts. Mind you that was with 4.10s and stock engine and trans. Tightened up the tv cable a bit to firm up the shifts a little bit
