I just realized the lower speaker grill is a different design between the 6-speaker and the 8-speaker.

Yup. Plastic grate vs metal grill. I was thinking about converting mine to 8 speaker. I think I can find everything but the driver side 4" cover.

Quick update before the site goes down again:

Got another 5SFE and ST185 3SGTE harness in and sent them off to Doug at WireGap a couple of weeks ago. Waiting on his e-mail to let me know when he's going to start the merge so I can tell him to shut up and take my money.

Found out that the wheels I wanted are being discontinued in the colour I want, so I went ahead and placed an order for those before it's too late. Hopefully they'll be here in January.

I finally started a new, stable job last week, so my year of being funemployed has come to an end. That now means moar moniez for car parts, but less time to work on my car. Hopefully by Black Friday, I'll have enough saved up for my standalone and the rest of my fuel system.

List of last remaining major-ish parts (I think):

-Link G4 Plug-and-play ECU
-BTI CAN gauge. (Need to double check with Brandon to see if he's still offering them for the Link standalones since they're listed on his site, but can't be purchased.)
-4 Bar map sensor
-FID1000cc injectors (unless they've updated and replaced these with bigger ones). Should be good for about 480hp on corn juice according to my tuner.
-Walbro 450 E85 fuel pump
-RacerX fuel rail
-ATS Racing cold start injector block-off plate

The car is so close to getting done that I can taste it, but at the same time, it feels so far away. Hopefully I can get it running by the 2-year-anniversary-of-ownership mark.

Congrats bro! I know how you feel about that. I'm still in contract but most people here at my work-place has been contract-to-hire so I'm not too worried. Indeed I have seen myself buying more and more parts now that I have good OT money to spend on the car lol. And I didn't even think about Black Friday!

Thanks, guys! Yeah, I'm trying not to be impulsive with my purchases just yet since I'm wanting to clear out some other debts first. Hopefully I can handle these overnight projects work is tossing at me so it'll add to my OT.

Got the oil feed and return lines made. I kinda ****ed up the finish on the fittings when I made them, but eh. They'll hardly be visible once installed, so won't bother me. I'll eventually need to make lines for my catch can as well.

Hopefully on Friday, I'll be able to get around to putting these on the car and getting the downpipe and one of the AC lines wrapped along with pulling my old harness off. Work schedule has been kind of unpredictable so far with when my shift ends, so we'll see how things go.

Small progress is some progress.

I've decided it's futile to try and make a car 100% perfect, unless you get it to that point then hermetically seal it. laugh.gif If it works and doesn't look sketchy that's all you can really ask for.

Fuel rail came in today AND they included some Big League gum with it. I haven't had this gum since I was a kid. Harness also came in right after the rail got dropped off. Pay day is Friday, so I should be ordering my injectors and pump. Decided to go for FID (Fuel Injector Development) 1000cc since they're a bit cheaper compared to the Injector Dynamic counterpart by about $175, so that difference will go towards the cost of the fuel pump.

My work schedule has been pretty "nice" lately, so it should allow me some time to work on my car when I'm done with my shift. We're getting cloooossseeeee...

Was just thinking, reminds me of ordering stuff from Sweetwater since they always put candies in with your order. It's the small touches.

So not a whole lot has happened since the last update. I've been ordering a bunch of small fittings here and there to finalize my fuel plumbing route. I also ordered an AEM X-line wideband per my tuner's recommendation along with my FID1000cc injectors only to realize that I was sent 11MM injectors instead of 14MM, so I'm waiting on the 14MM top hats to arrive.

Still need to order my standalone and my CAN gauge, but I'm getting there slowly, but surely. Hopefully next week I can place an order for those.

My fuel pump arrived yesterday, so today, I managed to sneak in some time to at least swap out the pump.






It was kind of a hassle due to that plastic bucket thing that surrounds the pump since the Walbro pump is bigger than the OEM pump. At least that's sorted and out of the way.

I also found out that the oil return line that I made was a wee bit too long, so I'll need to find some time this weekend to shorten it down a bit.

Hopefully next week I can have the old harness pulled off so I can run the new one.
