My Spin on Another Engine Bay Upgrade... (finished)
 
I started this upgrade awhile back and have been documenting most of it in my build thread, but I thought it was time to create its own thread since it has grown so big. (more detail in build thread)

I don't have a lot of time to spend devote to my Camaro at the moment, but I wanted to start this upgrade for a long time. I had to break it out in phases so that stuff would actually get done and I would have random parts sitting around the garage and me forgetting where they all went...

Phase 1 - Take over garage and build a spray booth
Phase 2 - Install heater hose relocation kit
Phase 3 - Flip fuel rail, set aside to polish, and remove plenum cover
Phase 4 - Paint plenum and fuse box covers
Phase 5 - Remove coils and paint
Phase 6 - Install valve covers with coil relocation kit installed
Phase 7 - Finish wiring harness dress-up, install plenum cover
Phase 8 - Finish fuel rail flip, install hose hiders, relocation evap solenoid

I'm currently sitting right around 6, 7, and 8. About 50% of each step has been completed and hopefully, if everything goes right, the Camaro will be back up and running this weekend!! I'll be sure to post finished pictures.

Phase 1: The lady in my life hated/hates that I stole her spot in the garage, but flowers and candy continues to take care of that :lol:.

Phase 2 and 3: These installs were easy as pie. I like pie!!

Phase 4 and 5: The plenum cover is a pain to paint. There was a lot of sanding to get the texture out, but everything came out better than I thought they would.

Thanks! JDP's relocation kits are great! Very easy step by step DIY guides from you guys. Those really helped since I couldn't sit down and do all the mods in a short period of time. There would have been now I would have remember what step I needed to do next if it wasn't for them!

Nice job. It's going to look pretty sharp when it's finished.

Finished everything tonight. Tomorrow I'll get everything cleaned up and get some better pictures. I have a few more parts to get, but it's pretty much finished.
