 3/8 inch stainless from the tank to the front of the car. Then I’m using earls fittings and hose to run over to  my mechanic fuel pump, and then to the FITech equipment.  Will also be running a 5/16 return line back  to the tank

Made a simple mounting bracket, and got my oil cooler installed.   Also installed the fan controller for my standalone transmission cooler   Ran my low pressure power steering line from my bulkhead fender well connector.         So working off my to do list slowly but shurely.

No. Photo was at a bad angle.  Cooler is inboard of the fender and headlight mounting area.  Tried to put it on opposite side from factory Drag Pack (see pic), in similar location.

Busy summer has impacted my wrench time, but slowly finishing up my final wiring tie-ins and plumbing in the engine compartment.   Installed my radiator overflow, front radiator support and radiator, electric fans, oil temperature sensor, started on my oil cooler lines.    Some temporary wire ties in the pictures, just need to do the final alignment before I lock the locations in.

Thanks guys.  Getting close to the end, so trying to move slow and do it right...

Finished my oil cooler plumbing, and also my fuel system plumbing to the FiTech Fuel Command Center.  Installed my radiator upper hose. Used one of those flex kits with the inserts. Really easy to use.  Make sure you get the one that has the billet end caps, not the plastic ones.

I have modified the FiTech FCC to remove the float and use the former vent as a fuel return line back to the tank.

Next steps are to finish my lower radiator hose and temperature sensor installation, finish the trans cooler plumbing, install my deep sump C-6 pan and trans dipstick.  

Then on the ground and off to Mike's to watch him do some magic with my exhaust system.  Won't reveal my idea, but will be very cool.

Oh c'mon man! Vic, this site requires full disclosure, it's State Law!

Thanks.  As I get closer to being done, I am finding myself taking shortcuts...but trying not to do that if I can help it.   I am very close to getting the car on the ground again.  Just have a small punch list of items that I gotta get done before I do that.
