I will add more pics as I get things done. Lots of work and I'm taking my time on it.
fuel system is 99% complete just need to select head so i can get proper nasty rails.
I spent quite a bit of time on the wiring putting in redundant grounds, soldering, double heat shrinking and wire looming everything. #10 wire was used on everything along with 30amp fuses. I utilized magnafuel dual 40amp relay, I Y'd the IGN wire to the PW wire going to the ALT on both relays as both relays will be getting controlled by the hobbs switch grounding them out. Furthermore I ran an override switch to cabin in case of any scenarios such as: testing fuel system for leaks, priming the external pump (not necessary), by-passing hobbs switch or if it fails, incase intank pump fails I can turn the external on and get home/safe spot. I also wired a few safeties and extras. With the gauges they have output signals for the warning set. So fuel pressure is wired to an LED as normal and so is the meth LED along with this I took a lil tiny tweeter speaker. I have this hooked up to a WOT switch and output from gauge that opens the relay for the speaker and when at wot if the fuel pressure or meth hits the warning it will omit an audible alert in case I don't catch the light while racing (is it necessary nope, but I figured while im in there might as well just mess around with the idea. All open connection to frame were smothered with anti-corrosion gel. also got the RSD line-loc hooked up and done was pretty simple and about 5 minutes to do. lines have Heat Shield hose protectors. Next step will be finish the rails and move on to choosing cam and installing it along with installing crank pulley and spacing rack.
also installed the super super easy RSD line lock. marvelous product! and super easy to install.
little change to the exhaust system. sold the kooks 1 7/8 and went with ARH 2" primaries. It is proven and i experienced this on my last build that the more u can flow in and out the more efficient the setup. Once you start making big power little changes like this yield worthy results. i expect to lose a little bit of low end which im not worried about in return i will get alot more top end which is basically what im gearing this build for with a powerband from 3500-7000rpm. The pulley combination im running i will be utilizing should dam near be creating boost of idle as my last build so losing a bit down low will overall help with traction and getting the car moving.
some pic of the headers.. they have been ceramic coated inside and out.
got these but since i am still up in the air with heads i sent them back. but you get the idea on routing etc.
Nasty LS7 Rails look awesome and new billet mounts
pretty much got it how i want it now im just gonna terminate the lines and secure them down...wish the magnaflow FPR came in black fml
Everything black on black... some sneak peaks at what currently going down!
Overall routing of fuel lines and look.
SC and Alt new look
10 rib balancer mmmmm...... yummy
Recieved the remainder of 10 rib Hardcore Kit:
Very small pulley (almost the size of an idler LOL)
Oil drain line Saver* (huge huge insurance!)
10 rib double bearing idlers
New HD tension (Magnificent piece!)
Comparison of old version vs new HD version
I must say ECS did their homework on these components and overall kit as its very heavy duty ready to do work and take punishment components.
