    Just when you think you are almost there........
    You have to start at the back....

    BIG Thanks to mate Dave at DK Car Audio & Security - For all his help doing the wireing for the fuel pump booster..
    Managed to use a spare relay port in the factory harness.... Had to remove the hole loom out the trunk though... But well worth it...

    Baz,

    Congrats! Great job and one hell of a great looking rig!

    Keep after the oil in the charger, change it once a year.

    I say dump the airbox and get a PBJ unit as it would look great with your engine.

    Fine indeed!

    Baz, if you check out my thread on installing the BAP I also mounted it in the trunk. I thoguht of using that extra relay port in that box but thought it would be too much hassle to pull it out. Go to know it is possible.

    Everything is looking great :)

    Hi Baz,

    Good work! Isn't it fun to crawl through a wiring diagram in search of the right wires that reaches a rush of satisfaction once everything works :D? A few weeks ago I installed a turbotimer by me onesies (had trouble locating the speed signal, only to find out that the frequency is too high for the timer I ordered) and the previous weekend had me installing the wiring loom for two gauges.
