More exhaust....ordered the "longer" Flowmaster HP2 today, should deliver within a week. Better than mid June like it's shorter cousin. This necessitated some adjustments to the exhaust routing, but it will work much nicer now. The collector will be immediately below the driver floor pan, muffler under the drivers seat.
Ran the braided lines for the trans cooler as well....-8 outta work. May need to shorten one just a bit, and planning a couple mount brackets to keep them positoned.
Also started running the fuel lines....filter should arrive early in the week, and pump/filter brackets. Both will locate below the passenger seat. Lots of room and sufficient airflow to keep them cool.
Throttle pedal....first off, space is TIGHT. I won't be wearing hiking boots, or even my shop shoes. Unless you have cinderella feet, expect your shoe soles to be touching, or worse.
I could find no reason to keep the pedal parallel to the brake pedal...that leg will rest against the firewall/tunnel and that keeps my right foot angled. Ergonomically, it feels pretty damn good.
The black line is where the rod will curve thru a slot in the panel, allowing the cable to be behind. The pedal maintains a consistent distance thru the arc, and the 2'ish movement at that arc perfectly matches the throttle body.
So, the computer and harness were "cleaned up" and flashed by JimsPerformance.com - however, the alternator wire was wrapped inside the loom, as were a few other things, so it needed to be un-wrapped and cleaned up. Working on ideas for the computer placement, just ahead of the motor/behind the winch is a good option. However, that means the entire harness is about 36" too long, and will need to be trimmed back. Additionally, the harness includes 5 fuses (one block of 4, and one inline) and I'd prefer it all be contained in the fuse block I will install in the dash area. So, this will be fun....
Additionally, there is one random unmarked connector....I'm "guessing" it's for the fan, but haven't yet chased it down. black/yellow/green wires, and (of course) the green dead-ends in the middle of the harness.
Thus far, not impressed....but if the flash is workable, then it's a good starting point.
Added 2 relays on the battery box, close/easy for the fan switching. Using Molex connectors to hook this stuff up. Military terminals on the battery too. Still lots to do, and waiting on some smaller diameter braided loom before I wrap anything up.
Believe it or not, Amazon....arguably, pricing was identical everywhere. Amazon product
The unit I got uses Deutsch connectors...."normal" wire leads might have been easier to deal with. (hindsight....)
Do make sure whatever you find is an "open" center....flow path is Pump > rear steer valve > orbital > cooler > reservoir
