Today was the day..finally test fired it!
"UNTUNED", Stock computer, PATS transfered ro my truck, stock pump, 24 lb injectors, stock maf,
No 02's hooked up no exhaust pipes, probably some vaxume leaks ect.. but it fired right up for the first try...

Now to clean things up, get the exhaust on, take it to the dyno to be tuned. Probably have to switch to 30 lb injectors but thats ok

It seems like you are having fun with this build for years now. Why did you choose Mickey Thompson tires?

So.. here is where I'm at...
Had to order the entire 3rd header tube on the driver side torque monster headers.(bought used) from the flange to the collector. Who knows why it was chopped up and moved but it was jacked up!
(1) so..when that gets here, weld the tube in. Take it to the exhaust shop.
(2)Get the driveshaft cut or what ever I need to do there..
(3) fine tune the hydraulic clutch
(4) organize the wiring better .Just go over everything with a fine tooth comb and secure it
(5) put the 255 walbro pump in
(6)put the 4/5 drop kit on( or 3/4)

Last is make sure it is 100 percent ready to be strapped to the dyno to be tuned.

Then just enjoy it before the snow comes hopefully

Another late night in the garage.. I had to get the torque monster headers fixed. I bought them used and for whatever reason the driver side was chopped up. Long story short, its back to original condition! Exhaust is scheduled for the 21st or 22nd.

So on this hydraulic setup, F550 master and 280z slave..
I'm only getting about 1/2-1 inch off the floor then the clutch engages . That will not work for me. Whats everyone else running and where is your clutch engagement coming off the floor...
