ok so here is what remains

have to make 2 more AN lines for the PCV setup, weld a fitting to the coolant vent pipe to the reservoir, and charge battery, load the tune.

as soon as material comes in, im going to get it running this weekend or next.

Well she runs!

got it going this weekend, but ran into a few problems. Got a base tune loaded in order to fire it up and got the idle with the solid lifter cams sorted out. Thanks John W. for the tune file and settings

few issues were:

Need to finish rewiring the EWP on a separate relay. thanks to ARMP and others for the tips on the wiring.

Having an issue with the clutch not disengaging. I tried bleeding several times with no improvement. Per Infra, im going to use my pressure bleeder and bleed brakes, and clutch. Hoping this fixes it or I will have to yank the trans back out this weekend. I bought flywheel bolts incase it is hung on the disk like I suspected.

Also need to sort out a new oil pressure gauge, and diagnose and resolve a IAT2 circuit low voltage issue.

REAALLLLY hope the clutch issue is bleeding related so I can drive this car for the first time in over 2 years!

Good luck, I hope you are right. Been a long time since you have taken it for a rip.

long story short, the clutch hub and input shaft spines were a bit boogered. ZZP filed the disc back into shape but im working on reparing the input shaft splines as they were deformed slightly. taking forever....

after that im going to put it together and drive it.

So I figured out the electric water pump issue, turns out if you thread the AN fittings in all the way they will contact the impeller
