I will keep the thread going with some shots of my current installation.

This is the inside of the car with the ECU on the left side, and a couple of relays and some fuses on the right. I also have some cruising tunes installed in the form of some amps, and a set of speakers and a sub, all running off my htc phone:

Image

This is the tank with the return line coming up via a bulkhead fitting in front of the tank, and ending up in a weld-in fitting in the right rear corner:
Image

The excellent VR sensor mount from Mario:
Image

Here's a shot of the unfinished engine bay:
Image

Since the last picture was taken, i have cleaned up the wiring and added some more black wirewall padding over the sound-deadening stuff.


Finally for this time, a shot of the car the engine is installed in:

I finally got around to Upgrading my MSII to Wasted spark and installed my Crank Tigger/VR sensor, and Coil Pack, Here's how I tackled it! :D

I also enabled the 2 step launch control feature with an active low input to the CPU with a toggle off my E brake ( for Launching ) and also enabled the Map switching with an active high input using a 12 volt activation from my Nitrous power switch, So that when I enable Nitrous I will switch to a different spark and fuel table.

First I chopped the snout off of an old crank so I could easily chuck the pulley in the lathe....
Image

Then Lathed a .5mm Recess for one of Marios 36-1 Trigger wheels and attached.
Image

Here is one of Marios VR sensors and his really slick little mounting brackets! ( I set the gap from sensor to Pulley at .040" )
Image

This picture show how nicely the sensor just pokes it's nose out with the tin in place
Image

I made an Aluminum plate that attaches to the Fuel pump stud holes that I mounted the Coil Pack from DIY Autotune to, I also plugged the old Dizzy hole with one of Marios Dizzy plugs ( it's under the mounting plate )
Image

Here's a shot of the motor all back together,
Image

Next up is to tidy up the wiring and reloom everything and after that will be to install my new Siemans 60 Lb injectors and start tuning! I had 32 Lb injectors in it but I was hitting over 85% DC at just over 6500 RPM so they were way too small....

I also want to thank Mario for answering my questions and for the great fitting bits and pieces!

Cheers! :D

Just finished up the second phase of my shop-car project; Making the motor presentable to the public. pulled and broke-down the motor's top-end. Added a 96mm flat-top P&C set, bumping up the CR to just under 9.0:1 and upping the size to 2056cc. It was running like a screamin' Banshee before so this addition should be really nice.

Got all the tins and plenum powder coated back to new. Also made a mod to the exhaust and then had the T-4 H/Es and header/muffler black ceramic coated.

Image

Image

Don't worry Mario; I didn't screw with the wiring :roll: . I simply unplugged at the motor :lol:

I'm now working to get the Porsche 5-speed connected and working correctly. It's physically 'IN".

Hey Kroc, check out my Redline 882C build thread in the engine management forum. I did my Fischer pulley somewhat like yours.

Nice!!
Welcome to the STF!!!

Looks like it could take off a finger :twisted:
(I really shouldn't joke like that, we had a member sacrifice a digit to a fan belt not too long ago)

Umm...Planning a blade guard?
