I considered the WOT switch, but I think for me personally, I'll feel more in control with the switch right there in my hand.

I almost finished up the purge wiring and relay tonight. I was going to swap to Mike P.'s donated rockers, but had forgotten that they were for 7/16" studs and not 3/8" studs. My loss as these are some damn nice rockers. They're up for grabs to anybody that needs them as long as they stay in the group. As they were donated to me, I refuse to make any profit from them.

So, I did almost finish the wiring for the purge solenoid. I'll finish it up tomorrow night after my package arrives with the solenoid kit and my new 'old style' bottle brackets. I also adjusted the rockers as I haven't adjusted them in a while and the passenger side sounded to be getting a bit loose. Tightened up all my header bolts. And put on the new valve covers which are BAD ASS if I do say so myself. Again, thanks to Mike P. for the valve covers as well. I'm shooting you a pm right now Mike to get your address for payment, sorry I'm late.

But got the rockers adjusted, wiring for purge and nitrous is almost 100% complete, new valve covers on...I feel like my old self again, this is awesome! And what would a night in the garage be without pics...





If anybody wants the old valve covers, they've got everything you need to bolt them on besides gaskets. I'd trade them for some SBC gaskets.

The PS pump may not be there much longer and I could really care less about what the front of the block looks like lol When I build the new motor, it'll be painted before assembly and will look very pretty once completed. Then I'll worry about what the front of the motor looks like bleh

Thanks Jeremy!

Just in from the garage, the wiring is almost 100%. The nitrous/fuel solenoid circuit just needs the activation switch. The purge circuit just needs to be finished up. The solenoid is mount and the purge hard line is run to come up through the vent holes in the rear of the hood. When they said this was the biggest purge kit on the market, I didn't realize just how big! lol

Tomorrow morning since I work at 1, I'll probably be back out in the garage finishing up the purge circuit. Will have to stop by Radioshack one of these days to see if they have any kind of momentary switches that'd be worth while for the nitrous activation.

Once I finish up with the wiring and switches, all that's left is to mount the bottle with the new brackets and run the nitrous line and it's done! May have to get the bottle filled to celebrate with a late night I-90 blast to try it out once it's all done.


Was waiting for me as I walked out the door to go to work this morning. Was very hard not to call in haha


The ZEX purge setup. Can't really tell how big it is yet.


They say this thing will do about a 15' plume of nitrous when you purge it. So anybody lining up against me should be able to tell when I'm about to spray lol

 I thought you might. biggrin

 

Can't wait until you hit the button the first time!
Remember 3,000rpm+ before you squeeze it.

Also, street tires+nitrous at launch=no traction

Drag radials might help.

I haven't run on street tires since my first track outing bleh  I run M/T 12.5" Sportsman Pro's at the track.  They've been working well so far.  We'll see how they hold up with some spray behind them lol

I'm not going to do that much of a test. Maybe drop to second around 50 mph and hold it through third biggrin  I may have to take a buddy with me just so I won't be the only one sporting a SEG when the button goes down.

I like that! Rocker boxes sounds a lot cooler than valve covers. Or head covers. lol

I looked for it over on TC, couldn't find it either. Why would they delete that?
