so, I got a brand new starter and a a/c compressor, why because it's hot as fu#k. the starter installation was easy as nutz. the compressor took patience and an air ratchet.





here is a comparo between the old one, I brought a mk4 supra model, good to know denso is still in the game.

so, I'm poor. I've been using the same hks ssqv knock-off bov for over 12 years. no leaks to my knowledge and it was the earlier adjustable pressure ones. well I figured it's time I replace it, with another knock off, this time it's a type 3(crowd goes woo).

the funny thing is I payed $50.00 bucks for this and it LOOKS like it's a legit item, but come on...

------GETTING READY FOR BIG FUEL----

this has cost me over $100.00 in fittings I did not need or I am not going to use. I brought this double hangar thinking it was way smaller than it really is, I figured it could mod it to fit the double wally 450lph's that I planned to use. had no clue the bosch 044 fuel pumps were this massive??




oh, what is my plan???

-twin wally 450lph fuel pumps
-modified stock hangar
-dual -6an to single -8an (in tank before the bulkhead
-single -an8 feed to the fuel rail









going to leave it at stock return size(5/16) for now I've had some guys tell me it's too small. but larry from sound performance said it would work, so were going to give it a shot.

working on the bulkhead now pics will be here in the next day or 2, looking for a sealant to keep the fuel from leaking out...

well moving along on this fuel line upgrade, I finally got the bulkhead together, used some jb to hopefully keep the fuel inside, now I'm not going to use all this wiring length, I'm going to use mostly the fuel pump plugs and some heat shrink on the fuel side.






I also came up with a solution to the heater control valve, curse that expensive pigmy flange, so for less than $20.00(minus the 60.00 wrench-I returned). I made a manual solution that works.



and here it is mounted and painted black(for stealth)








next up is tach installation, finishing up this fuel line/pump setup and installing my 2.5 ic pipe to the intake.
