Just got off the phone with Nasty Performance. Great guys to deal with. We discussed my fuel system requirements and capabilities.
Here's what my fuel system is going to entail:
-Stock 280z tank (has internal baffles)
-Corvette FPR / Filter, located near the tank.
-Walbro 255 inline pump
-I'm going to get some sort of pre filter (brand undecided)
- -6 AN line throughout ( likely a combination of hard stainless, and braided stainless / teflon lined)
This should be PLENTY for anything I intend to do with the car for a long time, and is quite affordable.
-walbro pump ~$100
-corvetter fpr w/ fittings ~80
-Stainless hard line - 2.95 /ft
-stainless braided - ~$5/ ft
-pre filter ~$25
-misc fittings - ~ +- $100
Hopefully have it done for < $350, and it should support well north of 600HP.
I took the stand alone harness out of the box that I received it in, only to find that it was wrapped head to toe in black electrical tape. This is a serious NO-NO. It was built at least a couple years ago, and the tape decided to deteriorate, and get gummy. So I stripped it all off ( HUGE PITA )
Here's the aftermath
Now I'm left with a gummy harness, so I've been using adhesive remover to get all that **** off.
It was a good thing I did this, as I found some shoddy connections held together by the ol "twist, tape, and hope" method:bang:
I went to work on the engine bay, sanding it with 220, and taking all the unnecessary crap off the fender wells and firewall. I intend to weld up all the holes, and make it a nice smooth final product
Then I went through the car harness, and trimmed out everything I won't be using. Leaving basically the horn, and headlights / side markers. All these will be run together, through the frame rail to the front, so they'll be completely hidden, and out of harm's way.
