    I received the EFI back today - not sure they actually touched it.... no receipt, no work done, stuff was just jammed in the box - this time without the foam on the top. They are a piece of work.

    Wow! No words!

    between all the outside-the-racecourse crap that's happened... I wonder if there will be much more racing this year....

    made noise tonight (yay).... thanks Regis!

    wiring done (just need to tidy up

    first shot was a fail because Holley didn't include their patented pointer setter.... which, I got it close, but what I didn't get close was which wire was number one

    it runs again.... tomorrow, finish tidying up, tune it and drive it


    I also got these so I can put the crotch harness into the stock seats...


    part of me thinks I can rebuild the stock seats and add bolster.... dunno, don't think it saves me any money but they would fit better

    heh, first picture of this series is 6 of 66.... and it's wiring. This is not coincidence.
    will this spot work?

    nope

    so I built a pan

    installed the digital ignition control inside

    except for fans, this is ready to run


    oh and some reassembly


    I'm so glad I bought the Dakota Digital dash - it really does make this a pretty easy thing to remove the dash to wire....

    Guess FI Tech couldn't end on a good note? Just had to get the last shot in, and I'm sure they knew you were done with them, so no reason to be nice.

    Guess what? Fed Ex is not delivering on time again.... FiTech knew not to send it through them, but in a final "screw you for not continuing to let us fix crappy products" they sent it by FedEx.....

    And then the parts arrived...
    so I know I'm tearing this apart... but I'm fixing several issues at once. Obviously the EFI, but the fans need to be on a switch and the fuel pump needs a switch for off too..
    but first, dewire several wires I don't need

    it arrived, but missing one part.... the clear cover for setting the various angles with the distributor... thankfully, it can be guessed...

    calm down, this is temporary so I can build a shelf here.

    unneeded wires

    controller goes inside

    I swear I'm going to rename this Corvette Aaron's donkey (referring to Balaam's donkey of Biblical fame). UPS - "we're running late on next day air"... had I got the parts today, I'd have it running by the weekend and potentially able to run an Autox.... now, not a flippin' chance.

    calm before the storm

    now it's getting serious

    thankfully I have access to my fuel pump

    ran the wire down the center console. I'm going to put a switch on the dash to turn the pump off


    show wiring it is not
