I took care of a host of issues on the list this evening, to include:

 

Installing the springs in the -16 return line

Extending the coolant temp sensor wiring

Tightening/Checking all Steam fittings

Tightening/Checking ALL oil lines

Tightening the brake booster clamp

Charge Battery

Connect FPR VACUUM LINE

 

Made a lot of progress in less than 1.5 hours!!

What's left to do?

 

Lines/Hoses:

Check Waterpump/Radiator/Overflow lines

 

Tune:

Load Software

Verify Power Up on ECU/Dash

Set up TDC/Timing calibration W/FAST ECU and mark 50 degrees BTDC for reference.

 

 

Wiring:

Test all connections

 

Check/Tighten Bolts:

Tighten Motor Mounts

 

Fluids:

Pump oul old Gas and replace/Prime

Add Coolant

So here's the "short" list...

 

I'm getting a cam sensor error due to a bare pair of wires we found in a plug harness adapter (basically requires you to swap two of the wires and they just cut and soldered them) so I need to buy a new cam sensor and resolve the plug issue.

 

I need to put an alignment on the car big time and go over all the suspension fasteners juuuust to be safe.

 

Car needs a full exhaust fabricated so I'm sending it to Jamie Taylor in Richmond Va.

 

Car needs dyno tuning

 

Car needs a new traction control sensor.  I'm taking the old one to Jamie, to see if we can mod it or just order a new one.

 

That's about it for the moment.

Yesterday I managed to resolve the cam sensor issue (I think) and the clutch hydraulics (New Tilton Master Cylinder) and I realigned the front after installing the T3 Strut brace... While I was at it, I went ahead and checked the rears toe... all is good... I need to pull the new water pump and resolve a coolant leak on the passenger side port, Notch the louvers in the hood to clear the strut bar and put the airbox and front bumper back on it... Then it's into the car trailer and down to Richmond for a bit...Which is great because I have some work to do on this:

Took the car to Jamie Taylor to address a few issues for me. I had a problem with an oil galley plug and fracture (Yup, you read that) that Jamie welded up, and then I had a list of other smaller items I wanted him to resolve for me... Jamie Is the man...

Car is running very well and I am really digging the progress. Jamie will resolve the exhaust system, and maybe address a few other items on the list.

Paid the deposit (and then some) on the tune with MattShueTuning. I expect the car will make very solid safe and reliable power. Jamie is cleaning up a few other items, but I should have more news in the next few weeks about some special things coming up... This car is finally coming together and is going to have a major "coming out" announcement soon!!

Update:

The wiring harness for the LS package FAST sent me had issues... The IAC wiring had a couple wires that had shrinkwrap that never saw heat, apparently... And two of the wires touched and here we are with an issue with the ECU.  We shipped it back late last week and are awaiting a call from FAST. 

 

What's left for now is the exhaust needs completed, and then I have a list of other things I wanted Jamie to consider (cleaning up the air box and building the separation wall for the fuel cell) and possibly a little more aero work... This stuff is never "done" is it?  We've posted a bunch of video on my Mike's Hobby Shop FB page... Matt Shue has posted some as well, as has Jamie on the RiverCitySpeed page.

GT 48 Curved Vane Rotor Description

Wilwood's GT 48 Curved Vane Spec-37 rotors are manufactured from a proprietary iron alloy developed to withstand extreme temperatures with the highest possible degree of resistance against distortion, warping, cracking, and wear. The formulation for this alloy is a derivative of technology and materials that were significant in the development of the extreme duty military spec rotors that are manufactured by Wilwood. Every Spec 37 rotor is precision machined to less than .001" run-out, flatness, and parallelism. Combined with our proven GT Series asymmetrical face slot pattern and individual dynamic balancing, you are assured the smoothest, vibration free performance at any speed. These rotors provide the highest cooling capacity and longest service life for extreme braking short tracks and road course competition.

SRP Drilled Performance Rotor Description

SRP Drilled Performance Rotors feature a specially engineered directional cross drill and face slot pattern that improve brake response and pad performance throughout the entire range of light to heavy braking. The venting and cleaning action of the holes and slots will reduce pad glaze and disperse gasses and heat generated during the pad to rotor interface. The holes and slots also inhibit irregular pad compound build-up on the rotor faces resulting in smoother engagement and improved pedal response in all conditions. The material removed also contributes to lower rotating and unsprung suspension weight.

No can do. I'm using hubs based off the 300ZXt and have moved the rotor and therefore the caliper outward to fill the void created by using the 350Z wheels and their +33 offset. The hats are for a 55-57 Chevy and work fine lol

Figured this would be worth posting here...Picked the car up from RiverCitySpeed on Tuesday... Caught her on fire on Thursday afternoon... Yup... BIG fire in the passenger side footwell... Was pretty scary.
