Replaced the firewall pad with a rubber backed one. I had installed the other one backwards and after the little fire on the first start last September, it was not looking as good as it could have.
Also got a catch can from Tangerine Racing and installed it on the firewall. Cary put nut zerts in so we can remove it if needed in the future.

Final connection checks and communication with the microsquirt before reinstalling the engine for the final time. Had a few issues with confusing info and the set up. We had to change the power routing to some of the relays but Mario walked us through it and remoted into my computer to help get the initial setup done and get things calibrated.

2 steps forward 1 step backwards. Got everything in place, but lost power in part of the relay box. Putting everything in the original ECU box sounded like a cool idea to start with. Now it is not so cool. Big PITA to get to it when needed and when we closed it back up, on of the power jumpers came loose.

Finished getting everything hooked up mechanically so that I could take the car up to Monroe Washington to see Mario in the morning at the Dub Shop. Left about 10 PM and got in to the hotel at about 3:30AM.

Got to Mario's shop at about 8AM and got to work. He started with getting the innovate controller calibrated and then we closed up the ECU box and hung it back on the battery tray.

Once everything was communicating properly and in place, we started pressure testing the fuel system. Pressure on the gauge was reading about 70 PSI and we had a little leak on one of the fuel rails. Got the pressure on the regulator turned down got pulled off the fuel rail to see what the issue was. The fuel injectors had a change on them where the groove that the retaining plate holds onto does not go all the way around them so is keeping them for him being able to seat all the way. We fixed that issue and they were still leaking.

To make a long story short we spent the next few hours sorting out fuel leaks and ended up replacing the fuel rail with one that Mario makes himself instead of the resold ones. His is way cooler and puts the fuel lines on the same side, making the engine bay tidy

Time for the 1st start. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)
This is how cool it was. The throttle cables was not even hooked up, but the car started and idled on the base tube that he had loaded!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/016.gif)

We did a few road tests and tunes and got the car doing well enough to be road worthy for West Coast Rally (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Made it back to the barn to get the flapper boxes hooked up as it looks like there may be rain in the forecast.
Jack made it out to the barn! It was good to see Super in-law starting to feel better.

Put about 1700 miles on it very quickly. Developed a fuel leak at the front.

We also took it to something called WEKFEST while we we in Seattle that was supposed to be an all makes car show at Century Field. It wes actually and major show for tuners not teeters. Lots of cool JDM stuff but not as cool as the aircooled show the day before.
