    I got new oil in the engine, new filters, and made some progress with the wiring. The battery was relocated to the spare tire well in the rear of the car, for a million reasons. It cranks, but seems like the fuel pump isn't coming on, probably going to wire it to power on ignition.

    Bro. Just fire it up already. Just stick in the key and bam. That easy.

    That and this quote are worth money in parts of albania.

    Yes that's me breathing into the camera like a horse giving birth.

    Well what can I say? This really is a fine example, that a well written thread can make the internet a million times more entertaining, on top of which the build keeps getting better and better Subbed and keen for more updates

    Breaking News!!!

    Got the car running.





    It dies almost instantly, and I'm working on figuring out what the deal is, but man am I glad to hear it fire. I think I'm going to have more issues with the fuel pump, might have to upgrade. Huge thanks to my friend John with the shop and know-how.

    Question: What is involved in going from external (clutch) slave cylinder to internal throwout bearing?

    I currently have the external slave, which is easier to service, and most people like. The problem is, that the external slave sits right where my driver's side exhaust pipe should be running. I don't know how to run exhaust when time comes with the external slave setup. Looking for some information/ideas.

    Answer:
    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    Women are useless,
    Just like all of you.

    I figured out the issue with the car dying, it was the chip/key security system that was no longer hooked up to the ECM, so the ECM was shutting the engine off. Sent the ECM to a genius in space to disable the VATS (Vehicle Anti Theft System), EGR crap, and set the speed governor to 250mph cause obviously thats how fast I'll be going. Still don't know what I'll be doing about my exhaust.

    You didn't check blinker fluid first? Amateur mistake, you're clearly a very bad mechanic, probably the worst.

    There must be an obnoxious exhaust or else I'll beat you.

    There's only room for one worst mechanic on this forum.

    It'll most likely end up with obnoxious exhaust, but I still wanna fight...

    Yay updates! Def a crazy exhaust that runs up the rear quarter panel i believe is the law in your state? You could get sent to jail if you don't run one bro.

    Got the computer back. Plugged it in. Fired it up and these are the sounds the cow makes



    Got an LT4 knock module and headers, going to install those this weekend. Fill the transmission with fluid and whatever else I can come up with.
