We haven't programmed anything yet.  We need to take it to AMS in Fresno so they can set all the correct parameters and then dyno tune it.  After that we can hopefully tune it ourselves.

How are you liking that Holley Dominator so far?

  Hi Rob....A little frustrated with info on wiring some of the loose wires on the main loom. Video says consult instruction manual, teck says ECU doesn't come with a manual info is looked up in software. Our F.A.S.T ECU loom had a plug in to our
MSD distributor, tech says Holley ECU doesn't hook up to distributor if magnetic pickup is used,
 Just need to connect two more wires, the white and maybe the yellow, and then were ready to program.

  Forgot that we have to wire the injector module that we had to buy to stage the 2 set of 8 injectors. The hot and ground
is wired but the injectors have to be pinned to a plug. Several ways to pin it and hope to see Moody this week.and hook up
those injector ends to the injectors.

Holley does have a very good users forum that has been very useful to me.
Danny Calebra is da man.

We added gas to our system to test for leaks and it was Niagra falls through out the system. So we had to modify.









A few things going on with our new injectors.  The base of the new injectors are slightly larger than the old ones which prevent the new ones from sitting low enough into the manifold which meant the top of the o-ring was into the fuel galley of the rail. So we took a sanding tool on the lower injector seats and reamed it out just enough so the new inject would sit lower in the manifold.  Similar deal with the upper rail, so we made brackets to keep the injecto from going to far into the rail.  We found out after we installed the brackets that injector have a groove at the top for an E clip for that exact situation:). We never claimed we know everything, but we sure learn the slow way.

After a couple days of messing around we got the manifold back on and ready to test again.



This time all of the lower injectors were good, but we had one on top the still leaked!  After messing around trying to adjust and fix nothing changed so I took off that rail and found this.



Not sure when this happened or who did this but it was like this since we changed to EFI.  We filled these scars with epoxy and sanded smooth.  Installed the rail again and tested the system up to almost 60psi and no leaks.

Still catching up here, we changed our 4 link a little bit.  We raised the lower bar up one hole.  Hopefully this will improve our traction some.



We filled our inter cooler tank and circulated the water to make sure we didn't have any leaks after we coated the tank.  All is good there too.



Finally have her on the ground for the first time in a long time!!







We will load her up in the trailer tomorrow and take her down to AMS, Steve Moody's place hopefully early next week for wiring and dyno time.

We are still waiting to take the car down for final wiring.  Their shop is a little full right now.

We took the car to AMS on Friday afternoon, not sure how long the wiring will take but we will keep updating progress.

  AMS is also setting up the fuel map ECT.

  Interring data logging info such as O2 correction %  manifold psi, temp before and after intercooler, Actual A/F ratio, TPS, Rpm and mph, maybe.

 Then it's DYNO time :-D

  Should be getting close to startup, checking later today.

 Checked on progress at Moody's  this morning, Lance is doing all the wiring and is almost done, then fires up the ECU for all the data log inputs. Done Friday, dyno next week :-)
