... Have you ever tried to pick cotton in the snow? He was a real man

Ok. I could only find orange hoses tonight. Figured I'd put them on for temporary. So I only have my fuel line, tighten the belt, and put on the front pipe to get it going.

Nope.

I have to sort out what tune I have on my tuner. Tim says it should be a stock Magnuson tune. I'm using the 3.8 pulley to start so that's all I need to drive it to the tuners. I just need to verify that it is in fact correct. I may have to wait til MOnday and ask Jessika to check it out if I email it to her.

Good plan.

... Now that the hard part is done, would you do it again?

Check with Joe, Racer778, he has a Maggie with a standard tune and I think he is running the smaller pulley, 3.6 but don't quote me. He self installed his maggie and has around 27,000 miles on it.

Please get video of the first start up after the install! I would love to see the smile on your face when you rev it a bit and hear that subtle whine that says "BWA HA HA!"

Well, actually right now. I have to wait for a fuel line.

But on the install, it was either the Harmonic Balancer pulley bolt, or guiding the heat exchanger hoses underneath the car from the front.

The screw that mounts the intercooler water pump was a bitch too.

I'll ask him. Thing is, I already had this SCT Tuner a while. From when I did my headers and exhaust. It came from Magnuson but we can't be 100% possitive it has the right tune in it. It should. But I am gonna play it safe and get Magnuson to verify.

Haven't got there yet but, ya, I'd say it'll be a bit nerve racking.

I'll get it. I can't wait. KILLING me to have to wait. I actually tried to bend the old fuel line carefully to kind of coil it up and make it work. No way. It'll break first.

I gotta wait a few more days. This fuel line thing sucks. I actually could have started it Friday night. I wish I'd called Tim earlier. But I thought for sure I could have had one made.

Ok. Tune is in. Fluids are all topped off. I'm just waiting for the fuel line to snap on and start it. Tomorrow morning it should be here. Can't start it till tomorrow night.

I could actually start it right now. The bent up stock line is holding pressure just fine.

Somebody talk me out of it. I wanna sooooooobad.

I know. But it's hard not to go out there and crank it up.

Don't know WHAT I'll do if it ends up getting here Thursday.
