Trans covers are on and the inside is complete.



Fuel lines and blower intake and tubes are connected.

One step forward and two steps back is common while working on race cars.  Last Year we didn't race but we needed to get our fire bottle certified to race this year.  One of our bottles needed to be replaced and we found out yesterday the new bottle was a little bigger which means more fab work.



Date of cert...





Grind time...





O2 sensors installed





Not shown is one of our temperature sensors that we had to drill and tap an old bung to fit the new diameter sensor.  I'll get a photo of it today.

As you look at the photo, the bottom bung was the same height and inside diameter as the top bung.  We had to cut the height in half and drill to 9/16 and tap to fit the new air temperature sensor.

  90 tooth bottom blower pulley arrived, 7-10 days was 23 rolleyes

 Now we can install it and the gas tank, hook up the fuel lines and test for leaks smiley

 Next thE EFI main harness to all the sensors.

  Then add 18 qts Valvoline 60 wt, spin the motor and see if we have pressure.

  Better add water and check for leaks Before adding oil,

  Efi has to be loaded with lots of info before starting we can do some but not all, need to learn.

 installed pulley, spins perfect  smiley installed gas tank and remaining gas lines, stripped, soldered and shrink wrap the wires that go from ECU to battery. Snaked the Maddussa like main harness through the firewall and plugged in some of the sensors.

  Need a different  MAP sensor '' manifold air pressure'' but found out Summit Racing has Holly products.

  Usually here next day.

It's the little things that take the longest.  We filled the engine with oil and cranked her over until we got 45+ lbs of pressure.   Then we had some splicing of wires to put the proper connectors to the MAP sensor and the crank sensor, then extend the length of the MAT sensor and a CT sensor.

   We're getting there, we had to extend the length of the water tenp sensor wires strip 2 wires at each end 8 strips
twist together, solder, apply liquid tape, let dry, then electrical tape and put inside a harness [ extra harness material sent with sensors]. Same drill on magnetic sensor wires. We had to use the end off the F.A.S.T harness  to match up. FAST uses black and red wires, simple, black ground red hot, Holley weird colors so we have to go the computer, look up the wire diagram
to see what colors are what rolleyes  Anyhow all sensors hooked up zip tied and main harness and plug ends tucked inside of firewall which should cut down the corrosion problem we had before from washing the dust or salt off the engine.

 We also mounted some older Bville tires for the dyno, Saving the good ones for Bville grin

  the exhaust sound vibrated the room so much it was shaking the plugs out of the plywood

Every few pages I like to put up videos of our runs so if people want to find them they can locate them a little easier.  These are some of our better videos.

     These are in 2008





                 2009



                 2010





 More from the past

            JL222

  Rob...here's the videos. The 1st one is El Mirage, car hooks up and goes 152 mph in 10.2 sec. Then track turns bad which you can see from other video.

  Another year already shocked

 Another 2 years  tongue Happy New year every body cheers

  IT'S been 3 years  shocked

How many drinks can you make with 100 # of ice?

Just turn the data recorders on before u start mixing.

That's serious drinkin'.

FREUD

We could fit a lot in our cooler if we wanted to, but we only had two left. huh 

We were messing around and were going to put two beers in our intercooler if we switched to a fuel class to say we ran alcohol, we changed our mind and did it while we were running gas.  Maybe we can get a Keystone sponsorship?



  Kennedy...'' last 2 beers i'm outa here''  grin

Slowly inching closer to completion.  We got new parachute packs and replaced one pilot chute.





We also are finishing up the wiring of the Dominator unit and the second injector module.  We had to search our switched ignition wire to connect the Dominator main harness to that switch.




We also made two different chassis ground for the Dominator EFI.  No photo to share.  We are getting very close now.
