Got it started Tuesday! biggrin.gif

Had our guru make a house call to help make sure we had everything correct before initial fire up.
Before he showed up we were about 180* off on the timing in the software... /facepalm

Still need to get a timing light on it to make sure were set there.
Followed by the wideband install and then tune.

She sounds burly on open headers and untuned lol.

There wasn't as much chaos as it looks in the video, just had a temporary switch powering the ecu so our tech was telling me to shut it off but i was telling the to hit the switch is all lol...

Anyway here you go! -->VIDEO<--

I guess I should update this thread..

2 days after the above post ^ I was hit by a car on my motorcycle. I was at a stop sign and the party at fault (late 20's/early 30's male) failed to pay attention and turned into my lane and hit me head on at about 25mph. Sent me and my bike back about 20 feet from where I was stopped. The bike was totaled and my right knee took the brunt of the force tearing 3 of the 4 ligaments. Been dealing with lawyers and insurance since and it's finally almost over with pending my surgery scheduled for next week.

That being said, I've had a lot of downtime and limited funds but with the dust settling things are looking up, recently made a lot of progress and shes 95% ready!

Pretty bay:

(****ty plastic fuel filter has since been changed and a temporary shorty intake has been thrown on)

Rear header in the works:


From the front header:


Custom y-pipe:


Back half:


Flowmaster and tip:


Just idling she sounds pissed.. lol

Installed this last week:


Glove box set up (definitely needs to be reworked a bit):


Still to come:


Currently she's running stupid rich but that's due to a map that was thrown together in like 5 minutes just to get her started.
After my surgery, we'll get some tuning in and about 2 weeks or so from now she'll be cruising the streets thumbsup.gif

It's going well, the doctor cleared me for 100% weight bearing so I can finally ditch the crutches.. still have the knee brace for another couple months lol

Yeah it was an expensive venture but well worth it. I made a panel for it in front of the stock cluster. Cut a slot in the top surround and on the panel there's a tab that it pairs with. and the shroud that goes around the ignition across the top of the steering column locks it in place.
