funny this was mentioned my mate just melted his engine harness from to much heat by the wastegate. i ran my wiring in my fender so should be good to go that way.

Be better off making a heat shield IMO. Don’t worry about the expensive paint job, it does sweet FA.

im starting to kick myself for getting a platinum pro and not an elite 2500 at this point....oh well i guess ill use what i got for now. i highly recommend going straight an elite, i dont even know why people bother with the platinum series.

bought it before i even upgraded my twins back in the day. so its just what i have and will definitely work still. if i was an endless money pit i would upgrade again but at this point just gotta get it runnning.

was still easy to set up the wb1, 4bar map sensor, haltec iat, flex fuel, couple other sensors,  all through the platinum. it is going to work just fine for now. i had to get a upgrade to run 1 to 4 can ports to run the haltech screen and the wb1 through the same system. other than that for a street setup i think im good to go.

Finished getting rid of all the hicas crap and welded a 8an on remaining line from rack. Will run it to the reservoir i made(still need a bracket) and will finally be able to start this thing.  Got the wide band figured out to the haltech it’s almost go time!

I have hit a snag I feel like I don’t have this setup right. The directions don’t even have the pigtail out the back like on my wb1 can sensor they sent so the directions make no sense. Need help finishing this up, I have ordered the can box extension if that’s what I need to get this setup, I ordered it so I can run the haltech screen as well as to my understanding I needed it to run more than one can device with the platinum series versus the elite

Finally got all this figured out for the haltech to power all my shinanigans. Learning way more and finding out the last 10 percent of putting the car together is more like the last 30 percent haha. Getting her done tho slowly but surely. Family life comes first cheers mates

FYI when making brackets like these for your battery get some fuel tank straps and line them(semi shop will have them made from rubber) because you will accidently ground your positive and negative together(hence why my posts are taped because i shorted my brand new battery for half second and learnt the hard way.) cheers

Another night of hammering down on some fab work. I hired a new welder for the shop he’s only 25 and can throw it down. Anything needed he’s done quick with a great attitude I couldn’t be happier.

When your welder runs out of argon on a Saturday in the middle of tree cuttin job! Shift that argon ten speed right back to the shop then full send back to the job site! Catch cans looking deadly this kid can fricken weld.

Well today was the day Just gotta tune her tunes up now. Thanks to Ben (bk) helped me a lot through this, and a bunch of my friends. Was great to see everyone come together to get this car complete. I have learnt many lessons through this experience. Cheers mates. More to come.
