    I completed installation of the intercooler water reservoir, pump, and lines. I finished the rest of the wiring harnesses needed for the Microsquirt, but still need to mount the ignition coils. Lots of progress, and I think I’ll have it running by the end of the month.

    Also found a nice patch of rust at the passenger floor pan I need to do something with. I ordered carpet last March, and just received notice that it’s now delayed until February so I might need to make my own.

      You going to do anything for a rear firewall? The water lines look great but will be in the way. Maybe bulkhead fittings?

      The car has a full interior, and the lines should be relatively if not entirely hidden.

      I asked because earlier in the thread you said you were going to relocate the battery. That means you should have a rear firewall. Just food for thought.

      Gotcha. My local track doesn’t seem to care about that rule so I thought I misunderstood it. They only require a firewall when using a fuel cell.

      Some spare foam, and $15 worth of fleece. Will do until(or if) my carpet arrives.

        Engine bay is complete, and holding coolant so the water pump was my only issue(was worried about possible sleeve damage). I need to add oil and go grab some fresh e85, but besides that it’s ready to start assuming no errors with the Microsquirt install. I still have one interior intercooler bend to complete, and I’m doing a little work with the gauge cluster. On track for a test drive by the end of the month.

        ALSO found my electrical issue from last season. After hours of tearing through every inch(literally) of the wiring harness and finding no issue I had the battery tested, again. Four hours later they called to say it’s good. Demanded another battery anyways. Problem solved.
