Glad to see you guys getting it back together.

Interested to see how the spoiler extension works out. I found that I really noticed the stability increase when I bumped up the angle of my rear wing.

  Yeah, we get unstable when we hid the marbles down course and spin the wheels, hope to get more downforce and traction from the extension. Marbles at EL Mirage and better overall traction and sooner petal to the metal at Bville

 The Holley EFI arrived late today 2 big boxes of parts and wiring. Troy is coming out tomorrow and we'll lay it out on the floor and take pics. Lots of wires to connect and figure out. :-P

You will love your Holley! Light years ahead of what you have been running.

  I hope so, are you running one? Trying to figure out how to connect 32 wires from 16 injectors into 8 pins. The fAST unit had a Y connector and it seems that's what the Holley unit needs.

  I'll be calling Holley teck soon.

We got our pistons a couple days ago, just need to order rings.



We got our new EFI system as well!  16-120lb injectors.

  I changed the unterminated 16 injector make your own harness to two terminated 8 injector harness  and they are sending the connectors that I will be able to make a y connection to plug into the single connector on the main harness.
  Well almost, I will probably need to go to a shop in Fresno that has all this Weatherpac stuff to see if they have a connector i can plug in 20 pins down to 10. Our FAST efi does, but male and female ends are reversed so i can't
undo and use it. Other wise I can splice down to 10 wires but rather not.
EFI harnesses tue here next Tue.

 Block is at Steve Moody's AMS shop to be bored and honed.

  Went to Midterm Connectors and found out there are at least 3 different styles of weather pac connectors and pins
and each style has a certain strpper and clamp for the pins. And they didn't have the style or the conector we needed.
 Any how by stripping, soldering and using liquid tape we can double up one harness to the other and use the single harness to plug into the main harness.

 for instance take the  two wires that are for injector # 1 harness  an  splice into harness #2  injector #1 and so on down the line. :-P

    Steve Moody's shop bored and honed our block, filed the rings to fit, and we start assembly tomorrow.

Didn't get much done today, we did lay out all of our new Holley components and connect all of the harnesses into the Dominator ECU just to see what goes where and what options we had left.  We did clean the bloc and the crank and installed the crank.

   Yeah, parts wash :-D... just undecided about the 16 120 lb injector and staging or not or 8 120 lb and 8 160 lb and staging when both start  flowing. Different wiring setup for staging. We thought we were going with connecting the 2 harnesses that we could do, but Steve says more control with with staging. And less plug fouling at idle. But Steve
has to wire it.

Yeah, my vote would be for running V5 and staging the injectors for the same reasons mentioned. The V5 software has some changes that will ease the staging setup procedure.
Don’t be afraid to use the Holley forum. I got some good help from Danny Calabra who is one of the moderators. He’s a great resource.

If you go with the 120lb and 160lb you could run it on ethanol in the future.
I like ethanol. It makes really good power and has big tune window. I found it to be very forgiving.

 We downloaded the v5 software on to the computer and laptop this morning.
