Started planning out the electronics board for the truck. It will be mounted behind the passengers side seat and is made of a 1/8″ aluminum panel. I also installed the 4 point buss bar that will distribute the battery power throughout the truck as well as the firewall pass-thru for the 12v battery feed to the panel. I still need to find a suitable place to locate the bulkhead connector for the engine harness. Continue reading Planning things out
I fabbed up my coil mount, it is made from a scrap piece of 1/4″ aluminum plate. It mounts the coil extremely solid. I still need to remove it an finish it off.
I also ordered a large portion of the components for my electrical upgrade which consists of mounting the majority of the electrical components on a 1/8″ aluminum panel mounted to the back of the cable behind the passengers seat. Things such as the MSD ignition components, nitrous controller, fuse sub-panel and various relays. I am even considering moving and extending the PCM harness to mount the JTEC behind the seat as well. Though, I am still up in the air as it currently only functions to control the gauges and a few other miscellaneous items.
The harness will pass thru the firewall via a 22 pin bulkhead connector. Battery power will pass thru via a thru panel battery stud. Power will be supplied via the PDC under the hood using the stock starter feed stud and protected via a 100 amp fuse. Continue reading Getting Wired
Spent the morning getting the GF’s and mine rides cleaned and waxed up.
I also just picked up the last of my powdercoated brake parts. So I can put that all together for hopefully the final time.
