We are making a new push button fire bottle deployment system, here is what the old one looks like.



The new one will extend out further making it easier to deploy.











We are still waiting for the new lines and will get rid of all the sharp edges once we get the lines fitted.

  Well, same push nob as before :-)

  Cables came this morning, look great, has fire written on knobs and pins through body. Push wire is extra long for us to cut to exact length.

  We weren't sure if new knobs would have fire on them or pins because I forgot to ask :roll:

 New cables and bracket is finished. Hole sawed top of intercooler and welded small plate with 1/2in pipe thread
for temp sensor to F.A.S.T. unit. Inner spill plates are finished and painted and ready to be remounted. We painted
the brackets on car as it is a chore to remove and reinstall.

 Just need to fabricate and weld 2 small brackets for tube restraints on intercooler and install it.

  Then fire up time :-D

   Inner spill plates are painted and reinstalled. Intercooler done and installed with air supply tubes and restraints.

  Water supply hose connectors installed and ready to connect hoses. One water hose was a couple inches short?

  New intercooler measures the same as old one. Easy fix, just connect 1 inch pvc pipe to extend. Had everything
except my glue had dried up.

  Put in 5 gal 92 octane and 5 more tomorrow with new warm up plugs, fill intercooler tank and engine water tank
and FIRE UP :-D

  A great day :-D engine fired right up no leaks, trans shifts, computer read out looks good.

   Justin said it sounds different after a quick throttle blip. fired it back up and did a slower throttle blip and if video can be posted you can see the shade cover supports lifting off the ground. good thing we had it tied down.
  It was awesome :-D
 
 If somebody says something into my right ear I'm not ignoring you, the beast did it.

Our first start up video is kinda dull as start up videos go, but it fired right up.  This video I posted it starts up on the slow side because our tuner Justin flooded the fuel system before this start up :-D

Anyway this video sounds the best.

  Phone video doesn't do it justice.
