Project Flash

Well considering my 45th comes with carbon flash paint guess I'll nickname her the flash.

Started with a bone stock 45th anniversary I purchased with 6,800 miles

Current plans are to keep it a mild street car as I already have a SRT4 I Primarily use for drag racing.

Installed some Speed Engineering Long tubes over the weekend and am thrilled to have a throaty v8 exhaust note once again.

Ordered a RotoFab cold air intake which will be here Thursday and installed.

Next will be cams which I am looking at BTR Stage 3, open to suggestions trying to maximize horsepower but retain drivability.

Decided I was tired of the added heat soak from all the plastic covers so I removed them now just to get some other things cleaned up in the bay

Nice 45th and welcome aboard!

Yep, the mod bug has bit you early, but I can sympathize. I had mine a total of 24 hours before the mods began. Now, 6 months later, I shipped her off for more power. LOL!

What are you going to do with all those wires?

The plan is to do a wiretuck and hide as much as I can without extending the harness by hand. Maybe eventually. But for now I am going to relocate the coils and get some valve covers and fuel rails to distract you from looking at all the wires till that gets done

After a nice washing of the engine bay to remove all the dust and such.

These are the places I would like to work on the most the coils, figure out what to doin the area of the fuse box, and the harness laying on top of the heads.

Did some wiretucking

Put the injector harness under the fuel rails, the EVAP line under the throttle body. Is there a better place to move the EVAP to?

Installing these as soon as they get here. I like a clean engine bay and figured these would clean it up a bit and look nice

Got my fuel rail flipped around only cussed a few times. Dropped a clip into the heat shield had to fish it out, then forgot I needed to disconnect the EVAP line and when I tried to undo it with tension I broke one of the gm quick disconnect lines so guess I'll replacing and tucking that line with some hose and clamps
