Re: 1970 Med Olive Project

Well the first fire up could not have went much better. It fired up on the first crank and idled decent. The ECM is still how it came from PSI so it definitely needs a tune and I had to cobble together an intake tube so my MAF meter could be mounted. The Fans came on at 190 and 195 like they were supposed to. I am super happy so far.

Since there were no issues I'm going to get the front end assembled for good and fab up a permanent air intake that will clear the inner fenders. I did take some video today but I need my son to show me how to put it on here. We are off to a local car show but I will try to post the video tonight.

Man you do great work! But I noticed the relays mounted above the rearend. Are you using waterproof connectors on those relays? If not could be trouble in the future.

I'm like you, I don't like wires showing. I just got my truck back from painting. So I'm finally at the point of putting everything back together. You have given me lots of ideas on how to hide my wires for my truck.

This was my first job of hiding wires on my 67 Cutlass. I learned a lot on what not to do.

I have a small junction box(waterproof) like you would see on the tongue of a trailer that the relays mount inside of. Your engine bay looks great by the way.

It does feel good brother. I need to get the sheet metal back on and get it tuned. I'm ready to drive it!
