Well it's finally time to pull it out for the efi swap. this will be a long one
 
OK well i finally got started today. This is going to be another really long thread. My current plan is pull it apart, inspect, and see whats OK and whats not. I have a pretty good set of parts collected. I have a set of gt-2 cams, ported heads still need them flame ringed and twin plugged. I'll drive them up to extreme in a few weeks to get them done when i have the cylinders out to get cut also. i have an MS-3 box with their knock controller and boost controller. Coil on plugs and a 3.2 intake. I will be building my own inter-cooler. Have a core and all the parts for that also. I have been thinking of possibly going with ITB's After seeing the torque versus HP curve posted here on another thread. I think my turbo is about shot so I'll loOKing for something that will support 650 ish HP. Also when the car was painted 6 years ago i got screwed on the clear coat it's already failed . So I'll repainting it also.
Any way Today i got started ran it warmed in up drained the oil then it started raining. So i toOK some before pictures to post and I'll post updates as they happen.

Will be following with interest and anticipation Ken. Thank you for letting us follow along...

Tippy 07-28-2013 07:55 PM

Mmmm, GT2 cams!

I'm hearing that the Borg-Warner's are making great power, quick spool, and cheap as dirt.

JFairman 07-28-2013 08:02 PM

Good luck with this Ken. I'll be reading and enjoying your posts and experiences as they go along too.

jsveb 07-28-2013 09:44 PM

Good luck. I will be watching.

Ken911 07-29-2013 04:43 AM

Well thanks eveyone, this should keep me motivated to keep going with it. Oh and as far as all the CIS parts since i have already started getting pm's. I will NOT be selling anything until it's running good and all dailed in.

With my work schedule what it is probably about a year. I've made all the other necessary schedule and budget adjustments to accommodate the work. Cut back to only two girlfriends, No more strippers or hookers, and actually eat at home sometimes.

Two girlfriends and no more hookers or strippers? The insanity man...you may want to rethink that project..;)

Seriously though...have fun and be safe on your build...keep us posted..

xbmwguy 07-29-2013 07:15 AM

i say cut back to 1 girlfriend and still pay the hookers to leave. it leaves more time for the efi swap :D

Ken911 07-29-2013 08:46 AM

You have a point but there are limits lol. It's going to be pretty slow during the rainy season here anyway. And i have to wait till the winter to do the body work for that reason.

Glad to see this, I'm going down a very similar path.

Send the CIS PM's my way. I have a ton of CIS junk laying around.

xbmwguy 07-29-2013 06:54 PM

JFairman 07-29-2013 07:21 PM

girlfriends require a shoes and bags fund, strippers require a healthy blow habit that you'll fund, escorts are everything you want for just the right amount of time. Proper etiquette lesson here: we only call them hookers after they're dead, if they're breathing their escorts.

BTW, good luck with the EFI conversion. Listen to Frankie! He's not that smart until you hear his thoughts on megasquirt, and hookers.<- proper use of the word there.:D
