 Surprised the hell out of me.  I looked through all of my old posts and couldn't find a single one in my thread.  Maybe the new owners thought it was inactive and taking up too much bandwidth?  Oh well.  Sh!t happens I guess.

All that's left is the install the new metal bottle brackets, run the line underneath the car, and figure out where I want the momentary switch for the nitrous and it's done.  I wish I would've recorded the sound of the purge solenoid activating, this thing is going to be kick ass haha  The nitrous and fuel solenoids you can't even hear over the relay clicking, but clicking the purge relay, then cranking the engine to get fuel pressure up and hitting the button again to activate the purge solenoid was like, "*click*.....*CLUNK*"  lol 

I can't wait until it's all done!  Might hit Radioshack tomorrow or Schmucks to see what kind of switches they have, if anything.  If worse comes to worst regarding switches, I may just order one from Summit with the coil cord so I can run it right on my steering wheel.  Fast & Furious style!  Yeah right...Ease of access more like it biggrin

Sunday evening, if I find something local and don't end up ordering a switch, the wiring and switches and brackets should be done.  Then just have to run the line and drill the hole for it in the trunk.


Might cut it a little shorter, but hardly noticeable anyway lol


This thing is a monster lol


I managed to keep the engine compartment pretty uncluttered with wiring.  Going to tidy up a bit Sunday or Saturday evening more to keep wires where they need to be than anything else.

dont you want the purge as close as possible to your no2 solenoid? the point of it is to purge air out of the line but if the purge solenoid is a foot away from the actual no2 solenoid itself it wouldnt be doing its complete job...

am i wrong? no2 experts?

Whether it's right next to the solenoid or a foot or two away, the air and whatnot is still going to be purged from the line.  The adapter to run the purge line is directly attached to the nitrous solenoid, so it is still purging the system completely. 

Now if I had put the purge somewhere else farther down the line (As in tapping into the nitrous line further back), then it wouldn't be doing it's job as it would be purging the line, but only up to the point of where it tee's into the line.

Just ordered the final piece of the nitrous puzzle biggrin

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/NOS-15651NOS/

Overkill?  Probably.  But I want to make sure that all the power is getting where it needs to go as soon as I hit that button. 

Once it arrives, it'll be about 5 minutes and done for the nitrous wiring.  Then it's just installing the new brackets and running the line.

Alright, so I decided I didn't like the wiring the way it was, and the switches I bought weren't grounded switches as I'd originally thought...They were lighted switches, where the light was grounded and not the circuit itself. So I was running the light through the fuel pressure cutoff switch (ground) and still had 12v going through even with the car off. That's a no no.

Decided to rip it all out and start fresh, and decided to do it right. Got all shrink tube connectors and it's all nice and perfect now (As perfect as it can be atleast haha). Everything is ziptied together and up out of the way, and functions 100% perfect. No power with car off. Power with fuel pressure.

I'll have to take some pics tomorrow after work as I didn't feel like it tonight. I'm trying to think of something to put where the old stereo went. Maybe cut it out and make a really nice switch panel or put an aftermarket pullout stereo in so I can have some tunes on my way to the track and while racing if I decide to leave it in once there. Music is never a bad thing.

Tomorrow after work, if I don't go see a movie, will be bottle brackets and possibly run the line underneath the car. Once those two things are done, the nitrous is 100% finished and will be ready for a leak test and then a short test drive on I-90 biggrin

Me too, that prior arrangement could be dangerous.

Good luck on the freeway testing.

Chad,

Since there are no SKINNY Aluminum Vette wheels like you have, Here is an idea fer ya.
Polish the rear wheels up and get some of those Greg Weld 15x3.5s Summit is blowing out for $80 per. Their slotted look will go as well as anything else out there. You just won't be able to buy any guns or ammo this week....

Those skinnies wouldn't be bad, but I've been seriously considering selling the Vette wheels for something a little more standard/common so I can get a full street set no problem, and have a second pair for slicks/dr's.

Right now though that's about the least of my worries. We'll see how things go once the season starts and once I get started on this new motor.

Now I just need time to fill the bottle and do a leak test before doing a road test biggrinbiggrinbiggrin





The new bumper would've been on as well but the old bolts were rusted stuck on the mounting brackets so I'm soaking them overnight in some PB Blaster.  Hopefully they'll break loose tomorrow so I can get the bumper on.



Thanks again Matt for the bumper smile

I think I remember El Camino Dan saying it was white with black top based off of the paint code. I'll double check tomorrow when I get back out there on the vin tag. Still have to trim the blowdown tube and make sure everything in the engine compartment is tight.

It was his hazard lights button, not his lighter haha 

Anyways...Matt, I ended up cutting the one bolt off from the bottom bracket that was rusted on.  The other bottom one snapped off when I went to break it loose with my 1/2" breaker bar.  Didn't even budge before it snapped.  Heading out now to finish up with the new bumper.  George will have something shiny to look at for a change this year biggrin

Well, had her out today and while she was running as good as ever, when I got home and popped the hood, oil every where! The passenger side had leaked onto the intake bolt/gasket area and the header, and the driver's side had leaked onto the intake bolt/gasket area as well. I should've thought about it before, but these new covers don't have the flange that rolls over the edge like the stock covers and most aftermarket covers. Just means I get to use some silicone and a new set of gaskets and should be fixed.

Tore apart the carb tonight too when I got home. Boredom mostly, and wanting to clean it up since I hadn't opened it up since early-mid last season. Plus I got tired of the nasty looking bowls on the pretty Proform baseplate and body. So I'm trying to paint them. The first one is drying right now, will check it tomorrow before work to see how it turns out. Just rattle can Rustoleum automotive paint in gloss black. All I had lol If it comes out alright, I may do them in another color. We'll see how they turn out and how the black looks first though.

Also moved the fuel solenoid closer to the plate. Looks a lot better and I think it'll be a lot safer as it was almost the same distance as the nitrous solenoid before. No pics tonight, but tomorrow for sure and I'm hoping the fuel bowl looks alright with the Rustoleum paint.
