    lol Right next to your one armed wiper motor. Seriously, I wasn't suggesting it needs to be removed, maybe more of wishful thinking if one could remove all that wiring. It always looks like a lot more when it's not hidden around/under the motor.

    I actually removed everything that I didn't need for that harness. The only things I have on there are turn signals, fog/headlights, brake light sensor, hood light, and the necessary fuse panel stuffs. IRCM, ABS, cruise control, wiper motor along with the wiring are all bye-bye. I'm using many parts of the distribution box for other things like the ECM or anything else that can use it. I'm not sure what it weighed before, but the whole entire harness with the distribution box weighs 7 lbs now!

    Looks messy, but it's sorted out well and will be easy to loom!

    Dave you know my wiper setup is a work of crude mechanical brilliance.

    Just weighed the stock K member with the rack, sway bar, PS lines and cooler, lower control arms it came in at 120lbs. Weighed a empty AJE no control arms, came in at 26lbs. I plan to only add a depowered rack and the lower control arms. I'm thinking a 70-80 lb savings. I'll get a for sure weight later, maybe tomorrow.

    Weighed the AJE with control arms and rack came in at 55 lbs. So a 65 lb weight savings.

    Well look at all that old goodness! It's been a long while and directions have changed.

    I got the opportunity to pick up my dream engine about a year ago. So I did that and had it all freshened up. Think the compression gonna be about 10:1. I will be running it NA first so I can get the car back on the road. You can see the Holley Sniper sitting on top. We'll see how that does.

    Wiseco did a bang up job in matching the piston weight to the old pistons so we didn't need to rebalance.

    Glad to see you are getting this bad boy done.. I hope you like your snipper set up. I went with the FI Tech set up. I told them what I was putting together and they set me up with a custom unit to feed my beast.. Keep going and lets see how fast we can still make a six popper go.....Rich

    Hope to have her going for spring/ March time frame. I went with the big Holley 8 injectors so when I boost it maybe i can still use it.

    I had to modify the oil pan to fit a starter. Just got that finished up, powder coated and installed.

    I guess I got lucky...

    My pan cleared the starter that I used so my pan was good to go. You said you are going to boost your engine? Can you still use that EFI set up?? When I was putting mine together the only EFI that would work with boost was the FI Tech set up.. Did they redesign your system?? Just asking and by the way now FI Tech has put their monster setup out that is good to 1600 hp that was still in the test stage when I got my stuff from them....Rich
