We never want pressure...that holds back the rpm and our motors. Some folks have used vacuum pumps and seen reasonable gains. Even I'm not to that point yet. I'm thinking about it though.
Sounds like I may as well just get used to the breather. I don't have any near plans for a cam or anything big, but who knows when the mod bug will strike again.

Wireless sparkplugs, now that would be awesome. Until you had to buy new ones...

Well, they are kinda over the end of it.

Now that is cool, I need to find something that can somehow do the same and put the indicator up front near my scan gauge or something, or possibly by the HUD, so I'd notice if it went off. I don't think I'd notice it down there. I do need it though, I've got it running off a relay.. forgot the label.. but it is only on when the key is actually ON. I still don't understand why you need the IC off when tuning, but I'm sure it will make sense when I start tuning here soon. I generally try not to leave the key in the ON position with the engine off anyways because I've been warned my batteries will fight with each other. Relay turns the main battery back on when the key is ON.

Damn it Trent, if I had my Bonneville I would have asked for the cap lol......but it'* all good. Now that I'm getting about 45% commission on everything I invoice at work, Operation SSEi is looking like it will be a success.

Oh..the fuel rail fuel line..duh. I was thinking plastic fuel lines. sorry.

The switch I used was a Grand Am fog light switch. The right SEM paints and some work can go a long way huh? Most people can't tell what in the cabin is stock and what isn't. As for putting something by your HUD..how about adding a little for something. I plan to mount the flow detect LED'* in my HUD pod that I made

I'd love to, sadly my fabrication skills are lacking in comparison to my wrench work.

X2 Very nice. I've thought about doing that on the pillar, but now you have my wheels turning. I don't think it would be very easy to watch the gauges on the pillar, nor is it easy to watch mine in the vent I have it in. Right up there would seem to be perfect placement. It doesn't block your view of the road at all does it?

Alright, so here is my to do list so far in no particular order.
  • Mount support bracket for alternator
  • Replace fuel lines with AN lines and fittings
  • Remove EGR
  • Remove cap on throttle body and open up coolant passage (Bill, could you elaborate on this a bit, how is it done? I have absolutely no idea)
  • Move wiring under TB
  • Flow sensor for IC
  • Switch for IC
  • Get HPTuner and Tune
  • Headers
  • Performance resonator

Feel free to add to or criticize this list.
