    Re: Teaser pic of my current project..

    Today I got the scavenger oil pump for the supercharger mounted and all the return lines ran.(too much of a pain to do a gravity feed drain) Instead of barbed fittings and hose clamps which I had, I decided to change over to all -8AN stuff with steel braided line. The return snakes around to the back of the engine and is completely hidden under the engine cover.

    Today I got back my valve cover with the aluminum bung welded in. The oil scavenger pump will pump the oil from the supercharger drain up into there so I wont have to worry about gravity.

    Tomorrow I'll connect the oil feed line(with aftermarket gauge sender in place) and hopefully hook up the air intake(waiting on delivery of the 3.5" 90degree elbow) Then its a matter of attaching the lower rad hose, and connecting the TB coolant line/overflow line. Oh and wire the oil return pump up. Then all IC pipes get reconnected and front Bumper goes on.

    Getting closer....
    Radiator shrouds are done
    all I/C piping is connected
    Lower mesh grille has been epoxied in place
    Front bumper ready to be bolted on and attached for good

    Radiator/coolant hoses need to be connected along with vacuum hoses.
    oil pump wiring still needs to be done too
    lower fan mount needs to be fabricated and power steering cooler remounted

    Re: Teaser pic of my current project..

    Chased a few gremlins in order to fire it up for the first time... Ignition powered on, but no crank at all.

    The Driver Information Center was throwing air bag codes, a/c codes, theft security system codes, no gauge info, no outside air temp display, etc etc...

    Turned out to be a poor connection in the fuse box that I had taken apart. I went over it all again and solved all those issues.

    The oil scavenger pump will be wired up to the fuel pump trigger but through the new racetronix hotwire kit. Since I don't have the harness yet(coming tomorrow) I just jumped the oil pump trigger wire to the battery as you'll see in the video(uploading now).

    The sound is not as high pitched in person as it comes across in the video.

    All I need to do now are gauges, injectors, and fuel pump, then time for the tune at RPM in Delaware next week.



    I pulled it out of the garage and let it get up to temp to check for leaks and to verify that the fans work and wouldn't overheat. I then washed it since it was filthy from sitting almost 5 months.

    I didn't cover them with anything, they are the optional OEM carbon fiber pieces. They are both real solid carbon fiber.

    GREAT Job getting it all back together.

    I hope that high pitch subsides when you close the hood!

    well, project has come to a standstill.....

    headunit is complete junk, i need to buy a new one. it was making no boost, blowing oil, and has prior impeller damage. Its all already off the car.

    I'm setting up the car just so i can drive it in the meantime, and this weekend im ordering a new procharger d1sc which i'll have to remake the bracket for and yank out all the oil supply/return stuff.

    it never ends lol
