Hey everybody. Not much time to work on the "Z" this winter. :oops:

Jeff has his caah on the stands installing a set of long tubes. The shorties were in bad shape & had constant leaks from loose bolts & donuts gaskets. I welded flanges & bungs on, Jeff's been doing the rest. This time he also has locking header & flange bolts so that should be the end of the leaks, which had a real adverse effect on sensors. :oops: :oops:

Thanks BP. Got the headers installed, Y pipe fabricated. A couple turn downs on the cut outs & it's ready to roll. Jeff used the in-dash rear window defroster for the on/off switch. One of the no longer used A/C vents houses an LED screen to show the status of the servos. If he holds the switch on for 3 seconds control of the servos is transferred to the WOT switch on the injection. He can tweak it's operation with his laptop. Doesn't add any power, but it's an interesting set up, "computer geek fun". :mrgreen:

Thanks BP & WC. Jeff has all the little punch list stuff done on the car. I have to take back the shop for awhile, another van wrap is coming soon.
Then we'll get started putting some extra pipe in the caah.

Just got back from the maiden voyage. Headers, no leaks, enough ground clearance to go over RR tracks, barely. Cut outs work nice. Jeff has an i-Pod mount on the dash with one of those I.D. sticker thingies on it. When he puts the i-Pod in the mount the sticker thingy changes the screen to a speedometer. It records video through the windshield & he has voice activated internet access. He's got a few other geeky bells & whistles that I don't understand. Next up is the roll cage, once we have a free stall to work in.
