As before, the regulator has a boost reference port, so that as we get into boost, the regulator will increase lb/lb as the boost increases to keep a relatively neutral feed reference...

ie: at no boost, the regulator is feeding 60 psi... at 5 lbs of boost, the regulator ramps up to 65 psi, at 18 lbs of boost, the regulator will ramp the pressure up to 78 psi... What this equates to is nice steady state fuel feed across the board...
what about 13 psi?

Joe is going to be doing the repairs to the interior console...

Late this afternoon, we finally got to stab it in... It took a little doing but we got it and it looks great...

The black plastic piece is put there to help me gauge how much of it has to be cut... I've already trimmed some of it...

In the am, in addition to fitting it to its final position, I will be taking measurements and taking my drive shaft to Thrash is san Antonio to have the drive shaft length altered and the proper yoke installed on it...
Here is what happened today on Brandi

looks like you may need to fab up a new trans brace.

Not for the new ones... But I'll check tomorrow and see what I can get...

Yeah... The interesting part may be the drive shaft loop... We'll look at that some more tomorrow...it gets real crowded with the three inch exhaust pipes...

I would worry about the structural integrity of Robert's bunghole as he smashes down on the accelerator for the first time with that new setup! Especially if the horsepower happens to make it to the ground and the car hooks up! HA HA

Lmao... It'll be fine... It'll be pulling at the leather rather than the other way around...

What's the green piece do? Is that what activated the hydraulic clutch?



Do you predict any interference with the rest of the console moving the shifter location further back? I mean, like the trim that goes around the shift boot.

Looks really good. All this new ground being covered. Truly making it your own!!

The green piece is the dust cover for the slave cylinder. Underneath it is a spring, and the hydraulic piston for clutch disengagement...

yes, the silver ring surround for the shifter will be cut and adjusted. Joe, Racer778 feels like he can fix it all to like factory with fiberglass, and im more than happy to let him go for it... The man has got skills...we have to narrow and lengthen it...

worst comes to worst... make a custom brace for the driveshaft loop... or make your own loop (might be easier than trying to make something else fit).

Not much in this case...

We'll probably end up fabricating a loop for the car... I'm having a new driveshaft built rather than cutting up the one from DSS.....So... If anyone is interested in a shaft from DSS... Lem'me know... LS3 manual trans shaft...Nine inch diff, 1350 u-joint
