    continuing on updates
    this is me saying "I don't have time to resolve the TBI's issues" technically speaking, this should pretty much bolt in place of what's there



    I'm also going to change the dash a bit and put a different light controller in place...
    and time to fix the heater hoses

    Time to start making this winter ready... first, exhaust leaks - thanks to WA state's salting the pass, these mufflers did not last long


    so some stainless turbos




    also keeping these in place - needs positive connection, so screws it is



    and fix the fender

    now to brace it better


    I'm going to change the dash and the EFI as well, I'm done with old-skool TBI

    I would love to drool onto this thing!
    Yes, I know what you done to it but still....I like looking at what was done
    My son (before gf) and I would cruise the pits looking at what guys done to their cars.. Not to find illegals but the technicals of it..
    Always looked for non stock stuff.. This rig probably needs stock looked for?

    It's always struck me as funny the difference between internet reaction and in-person reaction. I had to put the top on because I've given up on topless this year.... so snapped a couple pictures





    what is funny is the opposed reaction that was Pirate vs. people who have seen this in real life....

    it does clean up nice after some wheeling


    I went out wheeling with my standard crew


    after pushing a few rocks out of the way, the little guys got through


    all was not happy, the caliper started leaking


    ever have that voice in your head that says "check it" but you don't? yeah, left caliper... that's the right side..


    most annoyed that I didn't check it....

    on with the fix-its.
    first on the list was adjust the clutch.... so I put it on the lift (naturally)


    then did a full inspection and lube



    these.... not sure I'm a fan.


    back to old-fashion


    interesting stuff I'm testing. Basically it's a spray on wax with lube in it as well... I'm hoping it does a nice job of keeping the tin worm at bay.... we will see


    so I soldered a pig tail on

    hopefully things will stay together

    swap that vortec for a big old nasty rat and you'll never worry
    about getting enough heat in the cabin again...though my vette sits
    on the 180 t-stat 99.9999% of the time, i swear the floorboards
    are like frying pans..... touch with bare feet and YOWCH!!!

    especially fun since i drive in shorts/slippers 99% of the time. hey, its hawaii.....
