We finished wiring our LED lights for the water injection a couple days ago, and have been working on porting our flanges the last couple of days.  Yesterday I got one flange about 90% finished, I just need to bolt it back on and feel if there needs to be any more grinding on it.  When finished today, we'll start building the headers once we get the rest of the pipe on (hopefully) Thursday.  The second flange is already marked and ready to start.  Stainless is one hard material to grind. :cheers:

John I tried www.MotorsportsInnovations.com but it doesn't work. I would like to look at his site.  :cry: help 

Where is the pic of the speed sensor? What is the posting number? Yikes, 75 pages to sift through   :-D

Saltfever,

Try again, it works for me.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Saltfever, here you go.  I guess the sensor is where the wiring starts.  We thought the sensor went through the plastic tip. :-P

We have the yoke/wheel sensor installed, just have to finish wiring and other data sensors.

Thanks guys . . . the URL worked the second time. Nice site and great endorsement of the business from John. Sorry I missed the sensor. I did see the pic but missed the pickup in the darkness.  :-D

 Saltfever...Greg says we have the sensor upside down and the wires have to be next to the bolt on part of the yolk.

Just a thought for you on your intercooler.  If you make your ice from salt water and or add salt ton the water(calcium also works), it will lower the temp of the water in the intercooler.  Of course, your components would need to be corrosion proof. 

Ojust a thought.

We can get the water cool enough with what we are using, no need to add salt to a wound. :cheers:
