Made another trip to summit for a blower spacer that costs 81.00 and spent 1,300. I hate when that happens. Picked up a lot more fuel, nitrous, purge line fittings and gauges. Still working on mounting all the solenoids and lines and fuel pump. Ran around most of today so not much change. I am going to mount a plate off right side of blower out over valve cover so I have plenty of options for mounting them and making it look good. I cut out an aluminum plate to do the job. My machine shop/milling machine consists of a drill press and air tools. I will post a pic of the plate in raw form..... but after I clean it up and do the swirls on it with the die grinder and some 3m pads it will look pretty good. I get the aluminum cheap from a local surplus supply store and it looks rough when I start. But when done it doesn't look to bad. I did my door panels and rear panels with burger buddies and it was amazing how good it came out.
I did take the advice and get the good pyrometers that can hook into a logger box but didn't get box yet.
I also picked up a timing retard control box that is supposed to aid in starting and then you turn it up. I already have the blower boost timing box in my car. I don't know if you can use both... one to start it and preset timing while in staging lanes and then rely on boost activated box after that. Or will one do the WHOLE job better than the other? I also thought about putting a switch between the two so after starting I can flip over to the blower boost box. If anyone knows more about the difference between the two and one is better than the other please enlighten me.
Poor mans fab and milling tools!!! lol
After drilling and fitting, drilling solenoid holes, etc..... I will give it a die grinder and 2 inch swirl job that will make a world of difference!
Well tomorrow will be a busy day so I better get some sleep. Night (morning) ALL!
my 2.00 solenoid mounting plate. I will show you what it looks like fitted in place next.
Looks better than those little brackets they give ya. And more room to work with when mounting and arranging...........
