Thanks for the compliments everyone.

 

Keith - my favorite Stalker belongs to HOTTTCAR.

 

Pictures do not do Hotttcar justice. You have to see it in person (and hear it). Russ

I've spent the past couple of weeks cleaning up the engine area of my car. I relocated the coil packs down low and sorted out a bunch of hoses and such. I also replaced the aluminum "firewall". I have a new engine wiring harness on the way. It is custom fitted and has a shrink-wrapped covering instead of corrugated loom.

Quite a build Mike. I wish you were closer. I'd really like to gawk in person!

 

Who is building your new harness?

 

Could I get a shot of your engine compartment from the sides?

 

I'm trying to figure out my layout. Though, I know mine will not be as clean due to the bulky power booster.

My harness is being built by Easy Performance. I first learned of this company at SEMA in November. The entire harness will be custom tailored for my Stalker.

I still have a lot of work to do on the car. As summer was slipping away last year, I took a few shortcuts that I am now trying to correct. Besides the wiring, I plan to get my headers/exhaust ceramic coated in the near future. I also ordered a new pair of rear fenders as I do not like the fenders supplied by Brunton.

Thank you. Great execution on this build!

 

Mine will not be as clean. More of a down and dirty racer I guess...

 

One of the main things I was looking at was your throttle pedal set up. There is a lot of spring tension on the GM pedal I have. Enough I worry the shelf may flex. Did you so anything special there, or am I over-thinking it?

 

I also just noticed your 90s on the heater ports of the water pump going to the surge tank. What is the idea there? I was told to simply block off the heater hose ports. My cooling system will be slightly different, though.
