Took the cut, stock coils, out of my project car front end, just to see how it looked on my driver. WOW!!!! What a difference!!! When driving, hood is way down there, it seems. I like the profile. Looks like PO cut stock coils, 2".

Installed my new reverse light switch, decided where the triple coil pack is going to live, and painted the base gloss black, it was metallic blue. Measured the wire Seth sent me for the lengths of the new plug set I need. Started integrating the FI and SDS-4 wiring into the main harness but need to buy more electrical tape. Installed the new brake and clutch pedal pads.

My upholsterer friends wasted no time on the seat for the Ugly Rampy Im working on. Wheels are at the powder coater. I better get busy on getting its engine swapped.

Finally installed my Custom Quick Disconnect with Grant Sport Wheel and working horn with no wire!

Wheel [ 3" dish ] is 1/2" Closer to dash compared to stock Monza [ 7" dish ].

Now I can switch wheels in 30 seconds and remove it should I need to get under dash...plus no more banging my knee! [ 16" versus 14" ]

Re-taped all my engine bay wiring harness, integrating the SDS wires into the harness. Need bolts and some angle bracket to support one end of the triple coil; pack. Got the MAP sensor installed, but still need to route engine vacuum to it.

Adding 30 HP to a buddies car. What I anticipated being a quick scuff, prime and color quickly got in depth when I saw how bad the paint was:







I also picked up the wheels for my ugly rampy from the powder coater:

Acquired the final pieces I believe I need to port engine vacuum to my MAP sensor. Made but need to install angle bracket and then triple coil pack. New plug wires arrive as early as later today. smiling smiley Time to really review the SDS-4 installation instructions thoroughly.
