So a fella got to over enginerding a simple problem. Typical.

As I alluded to earlier I tore the nitrous wiring out of the wagon after it (I?) let me down at the track. The reason for all the extra effort and parts is to maintain serviceability and modularity for when crap goes wrong again - and it will - which left me very frustrated at the track when I couldn't easily diagnose the fault (it was a loose ground BTW - found it when pulling the old sh*t out). Now I can do that.

Left a little room for expansion... ;)

Figure I can wedge it in there.

Got the panel mounted; bolted it to the wheel well and cantilevered off the core support.

And then I started working on the wiring and we all know how I feel about wiring:

So, it's not coming out and apart for the rod bearing?
Do you mean: provisions for another nitrous kit?

I have to take another look at the oil to make a call on that. However, an engine swap is probably in it's future - but only after the Monte is road-worthy.
