Couple of little things to update on:

First and foremost the Holley 302-3 oil pan is a waste of money for the turbo drain plugs if you are hoping to install anything normal fitting wise... because there is just no space to get them in there. I am going to have to get creative and make a fitting.

Secondly, most of my electrical bits arrived yesterday. Including these babies:

See those blue weather pack seals? Those are for heavier gauge wire. Great for running power off the alternator into the cabin (ie. fuel pumps). This was an unlisted bonus.

Paw Patrol will never make any sense.

Tore the intake down and dropped it in the tub with some laundry detergent to get the grime off.

Normally, I would prefer to push it around the lawn with a pressure washer - but it is too cold for that. So we dirty up the laundry room and piss off the wife. Still better than her finding me showering with an intake like last time.

After it comes out I can wipe it down internally with lacquer thinner and rags on a rod to remove the varnish in the runners and plenum.

Then I can mount the injectors and rails - and start working backwards to the tank.

Better the laundry room than getting caught with engine parts in the dish washer.

Guess how I know.............:owned:

I was thinking on the crapper the other day whilst on Amazon an seeing if I could use a ssr fan relay from like an 04 jeep, and a frequency/duty cycle generator to build a bump box.... Think I figured it out for about $60 lol
