    Been a while since I posted an update but I was just working on boring stuff like cleaning and painting. The ABS module bracket had some surface rust so I sand blasted and painted it with POR 15.

    The firewall and trans tunnel were pretty beat up so I painted them

    Max Motorsports steering linkage painted with POR 15 1200F paint due to the proximity to the headers.

    SFC's were given multiple coats of POR15 black.

    Gave the rad and condensor and thorough cleaning, and some fresh paint.

    The polish job on that whipple looks better than mine. Did you have to touch it up in the crevices or did it come that good from whipple?
    Super nice build!

    Thanks!

    The polishing was perfect right out of the box, I was very pleased with it.

    I guess they've stepped up their polishing game. I've got a BPS polished TVS & it's nearly perfect.
    My 2.3 Whipple is ok but not nearly as extensive as the BPS job.

    You make it look easy OP!! And looks damn good
    Think a polished 2.9 Whip is in my future, if the polish quality has improved

    Really good thread

    Man, 6 weeks to post an update but I've been working hard! :D

    Engine is back in the car and I managed to get it in without any major gouges in the shiny bits!

    20190608_201304.jpg

    The engine wire harness was pretty beat up so I decided to re-tape it using self-fusing tape (just like OEM). The tape has no adhesive so it will never turn into a sticky mess like electrical tape. I found this stuff on Amazon, works/looks great!

    20190530_012458.jpg

    Since I had the wire harnesses out I decided to integrate with wires for the oil pressure and oil temperature gauges into the factory alternator/starter harness. I removed the alternator charge wire from the harness since I will be running 0 gauge cables to between the alt and battery.

    0 gauge cables from the side terminals to the alternator. Positive wire has a 200 amp fuse. There's also a ground cable to the header panel.
