x-faktory: 3.0 with PMO/EFI & Rasant AEM Infinity

Greetings............Very happy t'day weekend to all. The parts for the Chris Matthew's 1981 911SC project have started to arrive...so T'day has been like an early Christmas..as I have been unwrapping all of the goodies. The PMO EFI Throttle bodies are works of art and the Rasant AEM Infinity kit is also a great kit. Thanks to Richard Parr (PMO) and Andrew Darud (Rasant) for providing such excellent products........Fan/housing are out for Cerakoting...new Fiberglass engine shroud is headed my way, cams, etc.......but this coming week will be a busy one as I move this stuff from the boxes to Chris's car.

stay tuned for the assembly, install, fire up & tuning of this great SC.

regards,
al

Sorry Al, but Kenik travels in different circles, mostly concentric. Apologies for going off on a tangent.

while you're in there......

Very minor update: This engine is one of the cleanest I've ever worked on.......Chris's 911 is a clean machine......but even on the cleanest 911 engine...the dreaded "Triangle of Death" is at work. The underneath side of this engine is clean as can be...but it would only be a matter of time before these leaks, on the top side, would show up. They leak under the fiberglass shroud and then down between the cylinders and eventually coat the bottom, etc. That is one of the benefits of these projects...you can take care of some of the minor issues, before they become major....while you're in there. I'm not a fan of using too much sealant, but this area is notorious for leaking...so I apply a new gasket for the breather cover and apply a very thin coat of sealer to both sides of the gasket, as well as a small amount to the mating surface(s) of the t'stat and....the oil switch..............this one looked ok, but the crimp seal between the metal housing and the plastic body can leak right out of the box.........I'm not sure where I first saw this done, but I often seal that seam with Loctite Epoxy sealant. Not overly pretty, but it will not leak.

PS: While I found some relatively minor leaking on the topside...look at how clean the inside surface of the breather cover is....that is how you want the inside of you engine to look.....clean machine.

The Church Lady would call that Say-Tan's dirty, filthy triangle. Now isn't your fix 'just special'?

update 120116

Greetings peeps.......3.0 EFI...(Slight Return)

Work is progressing nicely on this fine SC. Yesterday, I installed the Rasant AEM Infinity and wiring harness. Andrew Darud (Rasant) really makes a nice harness. ECU is mounted per the instructions and the harness is now routed into the engine compartment....waiting for something to plug into. I also did some of the detail work, Converting the dizzy to use the AEM EPM (Engine Position Module), mounting the PMO vacuum manifold to the engine and installing the injectors, fuel rail fitting, pressure sensor, removing all of the intake studs and replacing them with the longer PMO studs..... and lot's of other small stuff. I'm also installing the new engine sound pad today (not complete as of yet...pix tomorrow or so).

Al - What's the path to route the wiring harness from the panel location behind the passenger seat to the engine?

wiring

The wiring harness is routed thru a hole in the panel behind the ECU and exits just in front of the torsion bar tube, then it is routed, along with some of the stock wiring.... following the inner/upper wheel well line and then up the firewall and into the engine compartment. Once in the engine compartment you can then easily route the connections to the proper location.

I haven't completed that yet, since the engine is not installed....but here is a good example..... this is Bruce Ladd's fantastic 71T with 2.8 engine, PMO EFI, etc. You can see the harness routed along the firewall ...etc.




PS: I did not want to post pix from the Rasant manual, but if you go to the Rasant Products website and view the Porsche kit...at the bottom of the listing is a link to the manual. Shows all of the mounting details.
