    Peoria eh?

    My wife's parents live there and we visit from time to time. Usually end up on the boat cruising the river.

    Cool project. It's looking good!

    A modest update...

    I had to wait for some new o-rings to come in for the crossover. I got the fuel rail back on, the 60lb/hr injectors, and the lower manifold. I also got the clutch and throttle cables reattached and the brake booster back together. I loosley routed the HID wiring too.

    I tore into the vacuum harness as well to clean out the routing and remove the EGR lines.

    The blower is all buttoned up and ready to go back on too.

    Slowly, but surely!

    Finally an update! Been working too much and then was off on vacation.

    I got the HID headlights running tonight. The foglights will be tomorrow followed by putting the bumper back on.

    That leaves dropping in the completed KB assembly for the weekend - the home stretch.

    ALMOST THERE! :rockon:

    I still need to bleed the brakes, install the driver's seat, reinstall the airbox system, vaccum wiring cleanup, refill coolant, flash recal for new injectors so it will start-up.

    I found I am missing the small KB throttle cable bracket. The powdercoating got into the cam cover coil cover bosses a bit and the screws will not thread. Also my passenger HID will usually not come or will flicker on until I turn it off and on a couple times - not sure why yet.

    Other than that I am feeling pretty good and it looks so much better.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    I will not have much time to dedicate to working on it today, but tomorrow should be a good progress day though. I will put up new pics as soon as I take them.

    She lives!

    After a fuel-off cranking prime to get some oil flowing first, I cranked with fuel and it fired right up.

    I got the coolant partially burped - still on the hoist. I need to bleed the brake system, put on the tires, do some minor tweaking of vacuum lines, and then should be good for a conservative checkout road test.

    Did you do the head cooling mod while the blower was off?
