Making Progress and Planning Ahead

20131002_201041 Getting some of the wiring done on the component board. I now realize that I definitely hate wiring. I am using switched grounds to make wiring to the dash and switch panel much easier. I will need to build another one for the nitrous controller, but that’s a project for winter. I have been planning a lot for what I want to do with this truck. Below is a list of things I want to work on. 1.) Install turbo and intercooler. 2.) Rebuild diff and install support cover. 3.) Install carpet kit and possible 6pt cage.

Planning things out

20130921_220737 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.  Read more

Getting Wired

20130914_203904 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.  Read more
