It is because I know how I drive. I am the kind of guy that will grenade parts just to beat some idiot that caught me sleeping at the line with his Ford Escort ZX2. I was showing off for a friend the first time I snapped an axle. I've put brand new clutches in just to go out and launch the shit out of the car. I'm just saying that if I put used cables in, chances are they are going to have over a 100k on them already, and I'll kill them pretty quick. If I put new ones in, I should definitely get years of worry free service out of them.

I spent all of saturday working on my POS s-10, it has to squeak through emissions again. But today, I made some headway on the car. I made all of the stainless lines (fuel and oil cooler), remounted the battery in a better tray in the trunk, ran a ground from the engine all the way back to the battery, installed several more ground straps throughout the engine compartment, punched two holes in the trunk for the nitrous and the ground, tied up the ground and the nitrous line under the car, mounted the nitrous solenoid (finally), installed the Torque Solution driveshaft carrier bearing support bushings, plugged in some more of the factory harness, and hooked up the speedo cable and other little things.

Took the day off of work with plans on taking my pickup to emissions and then working on the car some more. Well after 3 trips to the E-test station and spending all day tweaking on the truck to get it to pass, I hardly felt like wrenching on the car too. I did get my shift cables ordered though.

Well the last two weeks have been sort of like the "glory" weeks if you will. I'm getting to see the final product of all of my hard work coming together. The piping is built, all of my hoses are in, I've rebuilt the airbox for the intercooler, installed my new shifter cables, bled the brake and clutch systems, installed the transfer case and axles, put all of the front subframe/suspension bracketry back in, rewired the section of harness that runs to the t-stat, and a bunch of little detail crap. I still need to get my BOV flange welded on, wire in a few things, fill all of the fluids, install my downpipe, and put all of the body parts back on, but that's about it really. I'm going to once over the whole car to make sure I didn't forget something, and then turn the key.

Well, I just started it about 30 minutes ago. After the fuel pump built pressure, it lit right away, but wouldn't idle. I expected this, because the throttle body is from a junkyard car, so I'm sure I'll need to go through the TPS adjustment and BISS adjustment procedures, plus the timing is way off as well. The bummer comes from realizing that I cracked the brand new oil cooler when I tightened one of the fittings into it. So I get to buy another one. Otherwise I'm pretty happy.

I wouldn't mount a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail. The vibration of the engine at best will make it stop working. I have seen them eventually leak and cause a car or two to burn to the ground.

The vibration will eventually kill it too. I would drill and tap the banjo bolt at the top of the fuel filter, or they make a special banjo bolt with a NPT take off already in it.

Well she runs and drives! I drove it around the block a couple of times and took it to the gas station to fill it full of fresh premium. I've got a small vacuum leak to find near the fuel rail/ plenum area but otherwise she is leak free. For as far apart as I took this car I'm thrilled that everything worked out like it has. I spent most of the weekend cleaning and rearranging my garage because I got a new toolbox and since the car was able to move I was finally able to get everything out of the way to put the new toolbox in place. The toolbox fell in my lap because the cornwell dealer that lives across the street from me had to repossess it from another client, which means i got a screaming deal on it and i couldn't resist the urge to buy it. So i really didn't get very far on the car this weekend.

This thing is a giant. 84" long, 30" deep, chest high, with either 25 or 28 drawers, i cant remember. I'll have to count them in the morning. The original list price on it was $9,699.00 + tax. The box is only one year old, and in fantastic shape, and it only cost me $3,400.00 + tax. The dealer showed me his actual cost on the box and it is nearly double what i paid. And he said that the box is still valued at $8,200-8,600.

Couple things to update I figured out that my fans are not coming on whenever the engine gets warm, which has me a little bit perplexed. If i ground the sensor wire for the "emergency" sensor on the back of the t-stat housing, the fans turn on immediately. Which tells me that the fans, relay, and power/ground wiring are all functioning normally. And the fan switch that is in the radiator came directly out of the old radiator (old setup), and the fans functioned properly before i took the car apart. My thinking is that if i jumper the connector to that switch the fans should come on right? Also, my vacuum leak is an injector seal at the manifold. I was going to swap fuel rails anyway, don't want to burn the car down if that gauge starts leaking, so thats no big deal. I've been taking a breather from the wrenching, i just needed to relax a bit, so thats really all i've got for now.

Edit: Duh, the injectors don't sit in the manifold. So i meant the head.

I fixed the fan issue. Seems i had been running off of the switch on the t-stat housing all along. With this new engine i put in a DSM N/A t-stat housing. I left the "triple pressure switch(that's what the Chilton's manual calls it)" out when i swapped sensors because i planned on mounting a dash switch for manual fan activation. When i swapped to these fans a couple years ago, i removed the ballast box with the old fans and never reconnected the wires. But the fans worked, because that triple pressure switch was the one activating them. Now, the wires that did go to the ballast are connected to eachother, and the system is running off of the radiator mounted fan switch again.

I really dont know how she runs yet. I haven't got the vacuum leak fixed yet, and there hasn't been time to get the alignment done or time to get on the dyno either. The car is still minus a hood, a fender, both headlights, a front bumper, and a grille, not to mention that the interior is in pieces still because console had to be removed to put the damn shift cables in. Plus I'm moving all of my gauges and my turbo timer to a new custom built gauge pod. There is still much to do until its ready for more pictures and until the car is ready for some abuse. But tell me Diego, did you get the pic that i texted you? I can say that power steering is nice to have back though.

Ya know, I'm pretty jealous of this set up... When you get the bugs fixed or if your making a drop over this way with time to spare... Drop in and shoot the shit with me and help me with a damn water pump maintenancing..... and maybe some words on why I have a 1/8" gap by my ds headlight from a new fender install....

I will get at you as soon as possible Diego. I'm running on fumes lately, what with work , the toolbox changeover, working on the car, and other responsibilities of normal life. I think i need a vacation. I left the key in the run position since i fixed the fan issue, so the battery is super dead. I'm trying to bring it back to life, but i'm not sure it will come around. My battery charger has rejected it twice as a bad battery, so i may be looking at getting another Optima.

same type of thing killed my Red Top..... I love the batteries but sheesh could they get any more expensive... Im glad the price has come down some since I bought mine right when they came out years back for VERY shiny pennies.
