    Haven't updated in a while, but got some stuff done. Got the motor out, all the wiring removed from the car, and started cleaning the inside to get ready for POR15.




    For the wiring I ended up stripping all of it down, fixing any broken connections/cuts and re-wrapping everything. I used Tesa 51026 high heat tape for anything in the engine bay and Tesa 51608 (the fleece style tape) for anything in the car. Came out pretty well, although the 51026 definitely sticks to itself better than to the wires. I had to zip tie the ends because they started to unravel.



    This is the Tesa 51026


    All the wiring done!


    I still have to fix some holes/small rust spots on the inside, POR15 the floor, trunk, and inside the doors. Probably going to rattle can the engine bay black then throw the wiring back in.

    I'm still debating on what to do with the motor. I'm having trouble with exactly what I should do with the whole newer gen rod and piston combo. I was reading that the pistons will have to be shaved? I don't know anything about what clearances are needed, and I cant find anyone local that knows anything about these motors. Probably just going to keep it simple and throw the forged rods I have back in it with some DOHC forged pistons, leave it stock bore, get the head ported, get bigger valves put in, throw some SDA cams in it and call it a day. Since it will be all forged internals maybe I'll just throw some more spray at it.

    Has anyone ever used an MSD digital 6 on these cars? That's what I use to pull timing on my LT1 with spray, so I already know how to use one.

    She isn't telling us anything that we don't already know.
