Like dirt bikes race cars have bolts falling off them all the time

Love the way you keep your wiring all run cleanly

Thank you Bob and now you need to show the pictures of the wiring connection on your GT-1 car.

Thank you Shane and to answer your question I used the Holley PFT Line for the trans coolant lines. I talked to the guys at Holley and they said no problem and I could use this line. Man I hope he was correct. On a side note I will be connecting to the Hard Line that Kenny made.

Default Yep, I am still playing with the Trans Coolant Lines ( 10-24-22 )

I found these clamps on Amazon and they do a great job securing the lines.



Checking for clearance under the upper control arm and there is plenty.





Yep, I cut the wrong length of the heat sleeve when I made my last cut so now I have to order more.



So, I jumped over to the battery wires as I needed to do something a little different and then I called it a night.

Probably like these. But when they claim they fit #8 AN, they mean hardline not braided lines. In other words, the #8 clamps are for a hose or line that's 1/2" o.d. Order accordingly.

My point was that they give o.d. hose/line measurements for their sizes. So a #8an is for a hose or line that's 1/2" o.d. Perfect for #8 hardline but too small for a #8 braided line. As long as you know the o.d of the hose you're using and order according to that instead of just the AN size you're good to go. Quality was good for the price.

At least the ones I ordered were sized that way. If you're using ptfe braided lines the o.d. will be much smaller so maybe their sizing works. I was trying them on a couple of standard rubber lined braided lines.

You've set the wiring standard pretty high for the rest of us with your meticulous detail to wiring. I too went overboard with shielding wires and fluid lines around the headers and areas that give off heat, on my starter to battery cable and alternator cable I added the spark plug protector boots for an extra added measure of protection, inverted them to take out the ring.

On another note just wondering what single fan you're using? Is it for less fan/rad depth, less air intake tube interference?
Keep up the great work!

Default Intake Manifold Fittings ( 10-30-21 )

Planning ahead before I run over to Ace Hardware for some fittings as the one's that are supplied are useless.



So the Earl fitting that I happened to have looked like it was going to work. However, It did not as it hit the valley cover.



So I found my Mike Norris Catch can and I used these fitting to start mocking up the fittings I needed.



After a quick trip to Ace I think I have the fittings I need.



Only at Ace can you find a 1/8" Hose Barb (trust me I looked everyone else)



First Mock Up
