Today I married the megasquirt harness to the TGP harness. Installed the external crank trigger that came in the mail today, and painted the UIM/LIM, TB, and valvecovers. I didn't snap any pics and I'm too tired to go out there and do it now.

I had a lot of free time today and boredom got the best of me. So I spent about 5 hours degreasing, cleaning, and painting parts.

I'm sorry that my camera phone sucks so bad!
click em for big pics

TGP logs on a 3500 should be a crime

you deserve better flowing exhaust jon, and you'll pick up quite a bit of power as well.

Oh sorry, I should've elaborated. I put the tgp setup on there to get lengths for oil feed and drain lines. I drilled the rear side of the oil pan for the return to switch things up a little.

Been working on the car a lot. Lots of wiring work. I ran the wires for the ICM back around the firewall, the speed sensor and a bunch of engine grounds are lurking back there too.

You can see how I plan to run the belt setup. By pulling on the belt a couple of times, it will spin the waterpump pulley. Not to mention, that isn't the powersteering pump I'll be using, it doesn't clear the fuel rail. The correct one will sit a little more right than that. If I still have a problem with the tension on the waterpump, I'll put a larger idler pulley below it.

I'm going back to work on it now. I'm ready to drop it into the car I think. Still waiting on a set of 3400 logs and a x-over, and the T4 turbo to come in.

That'* better. Still soooo much work to do. It looks like the oil drain fitting I installed is too close to the trans. I have a 90* fitting I'll have to put on there to make it work.
I don't think the transmission likes the engine already. They were fighting with each other all the way down.

I don't think I'm going to buy the T4... My friend told me I was crazy for spending over $300 for a turbo. I thought he was nuts until he got on ebay and found me a $90 T04E.

So it'* going to be T3/T4 hybrid for me.
