PS pump back on it, injectors with new o rings and cups installed and harness reconnected. I also had disconnected my steering shaft in order to install the drivers header which I did before putting the shaft back in place so the header had to be removed again to get it all back together properly... that was a waste of an hour.




Almost there... this was yesterday.



Had to stop last night cause I was too tired and drunk after 12 hours of working on it and couldn't get it to start due to the distributor being 180 degrees off. So this morning I got up and fixed the distributor and it fired right up. I Still have a few issues though, the connection at the heater core is leaking and there is no boost on the brakes even though the vacuum lines are hooked up so I need to figure out what's going on with that. There's also a screech/squeal that you can hear in the video where it sounds like the belt is slipping or the fan clutch or something like that. It used to do it every time I started the car before the HCI swap but not after that... now it does it every time I step on the gas from idle till about 1500-2000 RPM.

Got the squeal/screech issue fixed... the belt wasn't tight enough. I also fixed the coolant leak issue I had on the test drive by tightening the hose clamp... who knew that could cause a fluid leak?

I got the squirts...

MS2PNP with the Innovate LC2 wideband controller and sensor/gauge. Going to try and install this afternoon and get it running with the base map before I put the WB on it as I don't want to over-complicate things. One step at a time for me.

FWIW, I would put the wideband on from the get-go.

I wanted to be sure it would start up first, which it did within 1 second of cranking... I still need to install that, and lower the idle after making sure the MS2PNP can see and control the timing properly, idle is currently like 1500 so I think it's the adjustment screw which I had to mess with on the stock ECU but so far so good, I'm impressed.

Hey bird dog, your inbox is full, just a shot in the dark but do you still have those part numbers for the brake parts for the IRS swap? Trying to emulate your car to a certain extent and picked up an IRS today. Any help you could throw my way would be much appreciated.

P.S. its time for an update on the car.

Hey man, sorry, I had to renew my VIP membership so inbox is available again.

Are you asking about the brake line fittings? (NAPA part numbers)

WH 1442 - M10x1.0 to 3/8-24 adapters (to connect hard lines to soft lines - two needed)
WH 702X3 - Three way 3/8-24 Tee fitting
BK 8131204 - 20" pre-fabbed 3/16" hard line with 3/8-24 fittings
BK 8131205 - 30" pre-fabbed 3/16" hard line with 3/8-24 fittings

And yeah, I'll try to get some updates on the car posted today as I've done a lot since the last update.

Excellent! This is exactly what I was after, thank you very much.

I hope to see updates soon. I picked up a notch thanks to this thread.

Yep, I was leaning that way too, trying to get subframe connectors installed before the IRS or at least at the same time to make it easier.

I feel like I know your pain, I have had the car a bit and only driven it very few times. Ready to get it on the road.

Funny you mention that, it's exactly what I'm trying to finish up (SFC install). I spent yesterday morning working on it and should be done this week now that I have more welding gas. That said, welding them on laying under the car really sucks and I should have just paid a shop to install them. I'll try go get some pics up this week if work calms down.

I dread doing all this on the floor, I'm getting too old for it ha. But saving the money welding them up myself allows funds for more toys on the car. It def needs more than yours, especially in the paint department.

I guess I should start my own thread instead of taking over yours!

My car needs paint and body in the worst way. It must have been painted by THE most retarded meth head in east Texas. However it's been pretty low on the list as I'm treating it as a true build where paint/body comes last after all the real work is done. (over the next 48 years)

Idk about that brotha. But I agree the paint and body is pretty low on the list for now. Just ready to get it reliable and enjoy driving it.
