Eh, he's kinda helping me out since we are doing the same thing as far as both swapping in Vic engines.


As far as that temp sensor, good to know its not in the coolant. I will not be using it if it isn't in the coolant flow. Looks like I am going to have to pull the crossover and drill/tap it like I did on my other PI intake for the 98. Not hard, just a lot of metal flakes lol.

You should start a separate thread for this so as not to hijack someone else's topic.

Didn't realize i was steeping on toes here, I thought the post was on topic. If this is the case i wont post to the thread anymore.

Scotty once you have had a chance to look at the chip and if you are interested in selling it please email me with a price i am interested if the price is right.

Hey Azure I guess it's ok for Soccer to put a picture of his tail lights in the middle of the build thread but not for me to post something on topic. You should mind your own business. Just saying

I think that everyone is just getting "antsy" to see Scotty's car running...

We don't care if you have to duct tape the damned temperature sender to the radiator hose Scotty. We want to see some action!
:p:

So, what's the exhaust system on this bad boy? I'm sorry if you have already answered this question.

Bbk tuned shorties to VRS catted X to Bassanni catback.

Lol yes I need to see some action soon myself. This Sunday I'm going to take all the crap out of my garage, back this sucker in and start tearing the front apart.

New vinyl is here but I can do that whenever.

Unfortunately, still under doctors orders to not do anything super stressful physically. Although I did say **** it and took my running buddy for a 1.5 mile jog.

I am not line dancing yet. Although I do frequent the occasional Zumba class...




At any rate. I did get cleared this week to start doing squats and working out again. This is a big deal for me because that means I can finally start lifting again seriously for the first time in almost 2 years. I start Monday. I will also be clearing the garage tomorrow or Sunday now that I can move a lot of the heavy stuff out of there and back this sucker in and start taking apart the front clip.

Garage cleared for the most part. Fully done by the end of the week. Had to take a break a few times as the knee started to swell... fml...


But in other news...

Ugh, same **** that happened to my 98...


Welp, better buy one from AM before the price goes up like it did on LRS I guess...


Or just get the Eddy for futureproofing but probably not. PI intake will be better on this combo anyway.


This is why you NEVER buy used PI intakes btw. I still feel I got the motor for a bargain at 575 but ugh.

Man even with that low mileage huh? I guess it's more the sitting and age that does that. At least you caught it now. Cheap enough fix but I know you were really trying to stick to your budget. Those little things here and there always add up :(

Its more time and heat cycles than mileage. Especially a car like a Vic owned by an old person. Going to be running around town at low rpm at low speed so not as much coolant flow and a lot hotter temps than tooling down the highway. I was kinda expecting this TBTH...


Sell ya my Bullitt intake


Bullitts are better than Bullets
Ha, and all the rest of the parts on your car to make it bolt right up?

:)

Like your alternator and all the brackets and the other little BS things?

I'll probably just do another PI or just say **** it and get the Eddy.

Lol yeah well I will get whatever intake I settle on when the new motor is in the car. Don't need to worry about it till then. Most likely a new PI intake. Kinda hard to beat for the money although having this **** happen a second time to me in as many years even though they are 2 different motors... making a strong case for the Eddy.

Speedhut gauges finally came in. I am le excite. Going to clean and spray the autometer instrument bezel either straight black or I might match it to the charcoal. I have both dyes.

The gauges themselves are great and perfectly match the wideband I got. Will not match the autometers that came in the car but those will be on the pillar and these ones that all look the same will be right in front of me.

Not that I that i would necessarily recommend reusing 10+ year old plastic intake manifolds but it will be interesting to see what condition that the manifold, currently on your car, is in.

It really does seem like those things have a "shelf life"!
