Update!!!

Its official......I'm gonna miss Power Tour and I'm pissed. Soooo.....more mods!!!!

Pretty big mess goin on in the form of new boxes showin up daily as of late, bench full of misc parts, lots of pop cans, more changes in direction than the wind, etc....but we now have a plan....lol, again.

Most pics suck, but we're on the fly, so bare with me.

First, the carnage....





Wire harness diet came out great. All unused wiring from stock are gone all the way back to the PCM. Lengthened injector wires so they now come up from the bottom of the intake instead of laying on top. More details once the intake is back on.



New catch can....which will be cleanly located in a less than obvious spot



Valve cover mods:
- Machined off Virginia Speed
- Drilled holes in the rear to accept -10 lines for ventilation
- Adding baffles





Provisions for IAC logs to help balance the runners machined in place.



For reference....they look like fuel rails as seen here under this intake.

Couple misc mods.....

One of my favorite mods is the solution we came up with for a throttle cable and bracket. Stock cable wasn't going to work, Kinsler didn't provide anything, so another custom piece was needed. Working with a machinist that does some killer work came up with this simple bracket based on a napkin sketch and some basic dimensions. Using a Lokar cable and LS1 braket, it came out perfect. Same guy is making a handful of other goodies and will post those up soon enough.

If you look close it bridges across the front of the valley cover using the two front bolts which end up counter sunk to the bracket.




May eventually anodize it, but don't have time now....playin with keeping it brushed or polish it.





Since the intake was in a million pieces, I noticed a couple of the linkage rods that were anodized black had some of the finish missing in places. Wasn't doing a whole lot one afternoon, so i got the sandpaper and air tools out.

Its alive.....again!! And its very angry....hehehe.

Took two vids with two seperate phones....neither could capture the sound without serious microphone distortion. Assuming (hoping) its all down hill from here, it sounds incredible. From the finally smoooooth valve train to the VERY deep, cube based exhaust note, its the "all business" sensation I was hoping for.

Still needs a tune and a trip on the rollers, but at this point, very happy.

I'm thinking about it....if it wasn't in a dusty ass field, it would be a no-brainer. Having a black car at that event in painful....it takes waaaaay too long to clean this thing.

Probably flooded with all the rain we've had as it sits right on the river. While its "romantic" to think of having a show next to a river in perfect weather, you get what you get when it isnt (ie, mud, dust, trees drip shit all day, etc). I'll be watching close as its only a short drive for me. Assuming I get mine back in time to repair all the shop "damage" under the hood
