what are those other lines that look like they are hooked to the vacuum lines
Thanks, I was shooting for it to look like stock. Fortunately GM'* corp. mentality works in our favor. With a little minor "re-engineering" of the mounting points, it goes right in like it was made to fit this car.
The extra lines are for the wet Nitrous-Oxide system. the two things attached to the valve cover are the solenoids. The lines, from left to right, are the fuel feed from the rail to the solenoid, the fuel to the fogger, and the nos to the fogger. The feed line from the bottle comes up the driver side frame rails to the solenoid. The grey can shapped thing behind the front lift ring is the Nitrous feed filter.
Now that I have some room to work on the accessory drive side of the motor, I can start adding the blower item, starting with the double row balancer. The finished car will have both the M62 blower and the bottle hooked up to it.
But, for anyone who likes having access to the accessory end of the motor without having to futz with the removable coolant tank, this is the way to go. Don (jrs3800) suggested using a 92-ish Bonneville washer tank. It is larger than the Buick tank I used, but it also has the fluid level sender which I had no use for. For me, except for "love-bug" season, a gallon of washer fluid in the nose is enough.
