Just wanted to post up what I started on today to clean up the engine bay.

I started by undoing my current fuel fittings




To get the fittings off the back of the fuel rail, I needed to take off the fuel rails, and realized I loaned my hex tools to my friend! So I was at a standstill. One thing I've never been happy with is the heater hoses, so those came off the engine and I figured that I wanted to route them out of sight; took measurements and got some more tubing ordered today.

Also I didn't care for the look of the EVAP solenoid or line, so those got taken off and will be mounted next to the computer.

I also removed the methanol tank and will be sanding it down a little a spraying it black.


I'm also rewrapping some of the electrical lines with heat shrink to give it a cleaner look.


I also removed the intake tube and will be removing the powdercoat. I plan on polishing it to a shine, if I run into issues I'll just have it powdercoated black.


Tomorrow I'll be finishing up the fuel lines, then will work on rewrapping the electrical wires in harness tape and heatshrink.

I also ordered some more fittings to redo the water vapor line and the hose that connects to the radiator!

There's just more and more that I want to do!

Thanks for the writeup Nathan; it's been a HUGE help already!

Well I'm at a stopping point for tonight. The huge yellow intake tube is no longer yellow! I removed the powdercoat today and will be smoothing it out and polishing it to a shine to match my runners.

I'm almost done with relocating the heater hoses, just had to buy some parts from Fry's Electronics to finish it up. I was looking at the wiring for the injectors, and have decided to reroute them under the plenums for a cleaner look.

I was up in the air if I wanted to design my own coil brackets or just do a relocation. I was leaning towards just doing a coil relocation, but I don't have that much space. If I can't find a decent spot to relocate them, I'll finish up my coil bracket design and convert it to g-code (not looking forward to that since it's been a couple years!), and get it cut at the machine shop i used to work at!

I need to order a couple more fittings to finish up redoing the fuel lines so if everything goes as planned, I should have it finished up on Friday!

I also sent a good part of the day cleaning up all my wiring. A lot of it has harness tape around it and will get heatshrinked and loomed tomorrow.

Still haven't figured out where I want to relocate the EVAC solenoid, but I'm pretty sure it'll be next to the ECU. I also have some more hose on order to redo the ugly looking factory hose. I'll take a look at what I need to order to redo the radiator hoses, as well as the water vapor lines.

Once all this stuff is finished, I'll see how well the bay cleans up and go from there!

I have to say, I wasn't really into cleaning up the engine bay, but after installing the beautiful intake, it has motivated me to clean everything up!

No pics tonight but will have a lot up tomorrow!

Ofer has them because I left my bumper with the T3 ports with him. I messaged him last night, but haven't heard back yet.

Thanks dude, it was pretty messy so gotta work on cleaning it up!!!

Took the intake tube off. I'll be taking off the yellow powdercoat and polishing it to match my runners. I'm hoping to have it finished up by this weekend. I'm also relocating the heater hoses and hiding my coil packs. I ordered a set of carbon fiber valve covers as well! Lots of goodies on the way!

I think I found a set of valve covers I like. They are made in house by Scooters Performance. From what I have read on their website, they have not had any issues with leaking and utilize the stock seals. I'm going to give the company a call tomorrow to get more info. They offer them for BBC, SBC, and LSX application. I need to make sure they offer a warranty against any possible leaks or defects.

If everything goes as planned, I'll be ordering these, and they weigh in at about 1 lb each! I'll also be ordering a coil relocation kit to hide the coil packs (to the frame rail), as well as call up Caspers Electronics to get a custom harness made to run behind the engine/

Here's a pic of the valve covers


These are going to look sooooooooooooo badass with the carbon fiber intake that already installed.

..............still looking for a tuner that I trust to tune my car.........the search continues............

Thanks!

I dont think the white is illegal, they turn on with the running lights, but still blink amber for emergency lights and blinkers.

Here's the link for the type of bulb you need. I dont remember what type of bulb, but Sylvania should have all the information for what type of bulb.

thanks man!, btw i literally went through 27 pages of your build page! holy shit you're the tron car lol. I gotta tell my cousins. My cousins were mentioning about it wondering how fast it runs and stuff. one of my cousin drives a Evo mr. 9 and the other S2K.

Great build thread! amazing everything I gotta show your motor to my cousins, they talk crap about V8s and domestic cars lol.
