picture dump and update, MLS head gaskets arrived, and are surviving so far. boost turned down to 22psi to keep the duty cycle on the  1000CC injectors under 95%. Rods and pistons are at the machine shop getting fitted into the block. New oil pump arrived and is waiting on the machine shop to finish the motor. Injector Dynamics 1700cc injectors are also awaiting the new motor. Bought  a square set of 17x10.5" mustang wheels wrapped in 275/40/17s. widened the front end to make the front tires stick out as much as the rears. Cutting out everything that will rub the tire. Fender flares are waiting for me to finish the suspension again and set new ride height before being welded on.

I shifted focus from suspension to the dash this weekend. After a very very long time trying to figure out how to secure my tablet cluster my brother had the awesome idea to use a push to open latch and have it fold down and just pull the tablet out of the front through the steering wheel.  it needs to be a reasonably quick release to access to my brake/clutch reservoir and to remove the tablet for charging and anti-theft.















I also got my new bullet center caps

dash is painted, headlight switch and indicator is moved to center vents, all I have left is to install turn signal indicators and figure out what I'm gonna do to connect the center vent to the center console.

Nice the 1st picts of the digital dash look like it might be loose fit.

But latest picts Dash looks really good.  :noel:

Getting closer to being finished, floors welded back in, flares tacked on, alignment done. fender mirrors going on tomorrow. gonna finish welding the flares on and blending them in over the next week. still need some adjustments cause the front rubs a little at full lock over bumps. either gonna roll the flares a little or raise the front up 1/8"- 1/4". welded studs into the dust cap to fit the center cap spikes and made some straps that go around the front dust caps in case the spikes work them loose. i also had to make spacers for the steering rack to keep the 17x10.5s from rubbing the control arm at full lock.

Fender mirrors are on. Took it out to cars and coffee in Folsom to show it off with my buddy's 68 Datsun wagon. I forgot how to drive lowered cars and mashed my wheel into my fender turning into a driveway. Luckily my buddy's dad is an amazing body man and hammered it back straight in less than an hour. Watching him take out that dent and making everything smooth was mind blowing.

Finally installed the Injector Dynamics ID1700s. The injector buckets for the 1700s were too big to fit in the manifold adapters for the 1000s so instead of adapters on adapters on adapters I made 1 piece adapter buckets. Took all the relevant measurements off each part and made it fit. im no machinist but i got all the sealing surfaces within .001". the depths are a bit looser cause i dont have a dial indicator that has more than 10mm of travel so i coudnt be super precise but they are within .020"

With all the one-off parts and custom work done to this thing it's easy to forget the basics when trouble shooting. It's been cutting out under boost once in a while and only little bits at a time. Some pulls would be flawless. Sent data logs to @vladituned and he pointed out I had a sync loss with my cam sensor and a really nosey TPS signal. I replaced the CAS cause the one that was in there is coming up on its 30th birthday. Would still break up but had no more camshaft sync errors. I swapped the TPS and the signal is now where it should be. All spark plugs looked fine. Smoke checked in intake and the manifold had a massive leak at the flange Turned out to be the liquid gasket that I used for my intake manifold gasket gets dissolved by E85 and the unevenness in the flange blew it out. Manifold is now nice and flat and going back together.

With the weather so nice and car shows back in action I'm getting motivated to finish this terd. Built some new exhaust after work today, it eliminated almost all of my droning noise by putting it out the back of the truck. i even picked up a few inches of ground clearance. Welded the left bed panel back in for filler neck clearance. Still need to build my axle hump to seal it in. Picked up some Audi R8 coils for all the spark. those will be going in sometime this week.

Installed the R8 coils. Definitely should have done more research first. I was unaware that it required an additional circuit be added to my MS3X to run them at full potential.. Huge thanks to the guys on MT.net for coming through with all the info needed for install.

After watching people immediately lose interest with my motor after seeing "Kia Motors" on my valve cover I decided to shave it off of a spare one I have laying around and have laser cut interchangeable plates made. TheGreatMetalShop on Etsy did such an awesome job on my keychain and I cant wait for these to come in. Now I need to figure out what color I want to paint my valve cover.

To be honest that never crossed my mind. I was originally just going to get a Mazda and a Ford. Then thought the #Superterd would be a good idea since that's what all my Instagram pics are under. Ain't No Bitch motorsports has been a running joke for almost 20 years. My Summit Racing account still has that as my company name which makes the day of whoever takes my phone order.

The weather is getting hotter so I'm back to thinking about how to make my air conditioning work as best as I can. It's been suggested to me to make an under body panel between the radiator and the cross member to prevent a high pressure area from the back of the radiator. So far it's looking promising. A/C on full blast, 90*F out and engine temps below 198*F at 70mph @ 3000rpm
