    I've been seeing some nice 65 Pontiac Lemans projects somewhat close by, but i still havent quite decided yet. I was looking for a 67-68 Dodge dart originally but i keep changing my mind. Whatever it is, it's gonna be mid-late 60's or early 70's. Plan is to drop a junkyard chevy in it and see how fast i can make it for 10k or less. It will be a slow going project, but i've always loved 60s muscle cars so it should be pretty cool eventually

    Got the 7 pin connector mounted yesterday. The bracket they sent with it came with a 90* bend on it, so i cut that off and welded on a little piece of steel flat bar so i could mount it in the stock location.

    Then got the brake controller mounted this morning. Went back and forth on where i wanted it but ultimately i didnt want to drill into the dash and couldnt figure out a decent looking bracket to mount it near the ebrake. So i ended up putting it in the center console since i have to build a harness for it already. Speaking of which that is next. I’m going to run three wires for the 12v+, electric brakes, aux 12v power from the plug to the cab. And then another smaller wire from where i have already tapped into the driver side tail light harness for the camper shell 3rd brake light. I am going to use this for the 12v cold side brake switch input to the controller so i dont have to cut anything under the dash

    Edit: went back and actually read the directions for the brake controller and had an oh shit moment lol. It has to be mounted horizontally so the sensor in it can work to determine how hard you’re braking so, i relocated it down below the coin tray. Not really thrilled with how it looks here but it will have to do

    Got the header off tonight and to my surprise, i was able to easily remove all of the header studs. I guess having all of them out 5k miles ago when the head was resurfaced made a big difference. I was expecting them to put up a fight. Ill chase the threads and install the new studs tomorrow morning if all goes as planned

    I think mine came out pretty easily last time too, but i hit them with pb blaster and let them sit overnight before trying to break them loose. Hopefully yours dont give you much trouble

    Reinstalled my honeycomb grille and color matched the emblem

    Then moved on and chased the holes and installed the LS1 ARP header studs. They were a little longer than the stock ones but i decided to roll the dice and see what happens. It does appear that they bottom out before being stopped by the lip on the studs in the middle, but i didnt figure it would be an issue since they dont require much torque. Also went ahead and replaced the exhaust manifold gasket while i was in there as well

    I swapped out my water methanol nozzle last night for an 883ml/min one. I ordered a 625ml/min but snow sent me the big daddy lol. Anyways, not a real big deal, i just adjusted the controller so it is starting spray at 2lbs and ramps up to full spray at 14lbs (which it never reaches). Since i have it set up like this, the most i saw around 8lbs was 43% injection so it would be somewhere around the 380ml/min mark.

    I also had a light bulb come on last night regarding why my tune is running lean sometimes in low boost situations (typically in the 2-3lb range before richening up a lot). When i swapped my motor, i swapped fuel rails and injectors too, bc my old ones had 270k on them. However, in the FSM, it states that the injectors' flow can range from 284-344cc's. I remember with my old injectors, i would see AFRs in the 12-12.5 range in low boost and then it would richen up higher than that. Since swapping injectors out, it had a lean spot where AFRs would try to spike to the 13.5-14 range under low boost. So i went back and added fuel with the 7th last night and it seems to be a little better now. Need to dial back the water/meth some and do a little more testing to possibly add a little more. I'll probably tackle that this weekend, but for now the tune is getting better.

    I sure do! I've been meaning to PM you about this. Things are finally slowing down at work. Do you have any idea how many days you'd need the truck for to get things rolling? I would definitely like to get this going so there is an option for a quality manifold.. I've been getting the itch to turn mine up a little but leave the stock internals for now. Turbo seems like the obvious choice to do that :D
