Alrighty more progress haha had the entire day off work!

So my trunk lid off of this Chaser was fucked cus it had some lame wing on it and we ripped it off and yea, so had to grab the one from my blue Chaser as it was all good, but it had tons of aftermarket sound deadner from when my Chaser had a huge stereo. That needed to come out

Posted Image

Took about a half hour to an hour, and got a couple good cuts in my hands before I put gloves on haha

Posted Image

Next was to get rid of the blue vinyl

Posted Image

With the heat gun that came off alot easier than the deadner

Posted Image

Took a break from working on the car, went to the gym and set a new best for dead lifts at 455lbs!!!!!

Back to car after guy, took the door panels off and started to remove stuff

Posted Image

Had to roll the window up to get to all the wiring, so I hot wired the motor, also helped me figure out what is what for wires

Posted Image

Attached new lines so I can wire it into my painless set up, yes it is all soldered!

Posted Image

Loomed and ran through the factory boot

Posted Image

Posted Image

Way cleaner now!

Posted Image

O and some packages showed up this morning

Posted Image

Just some of my gear they sent me, and all the Wirez wiring that I need to get the car going and rewired!

Remote reservoir mounted on the strut tower

Posted Image

Pedals all installed, and swapped from the auto huge brake to the manual smaller brake

Posted Image

Got my wheel and hub swapped over

Posted Image

Started to run my main power wire with Wirez power cable

Battery box installed with my power distros, and also mounted my battery kill switch on the back of the car

Not this year, maybe next year. Don't wanna do it with out doing a dual caliper set up and can't afford that this year, as all my money is going into getting it running! The headers are still a mystery price till they are done, so we'll see how much they cost haha

Yup,

My friend has a tuning program that turns the ECU almost into a stand alone ecu, and can change anything and everything on it. He's running 660 hp out of his FC with a LS3 on the factory ECU.

The shop he's at the did a tune on my truck (04 Chev 6.0L) with the same program, and I picked up power and mileage.

yeah, LSX's don't need standalones. the factory ECU pretty much is one.

Well was a long weekend of going out with clients and dealers from out of town/country, so I didn't get much work done, but the car isn't back from headers yet so there was not much I could do.

Started out working in my living room on the dash panel

Posted Image

Then moved to the garage to drill the gauge holes as I didn't wanna sweep up after getting stuff everywhere

Had to cut the hole for my double din Clarion head unit that is going in

Posted Image

Then mounted my switches, my gauges, and the double din cage, the deck I'm getting is not released yet so they haven't even shipped to North America yet so waiting on the deck to go in. Those are my switches for my heater/defrost, strobes, and other random things.

Posted Image


I was lucky enough that I had my spare dash at home that I could do this, as the one for my car is in my car at the header shop

do you guys know if you can change the ECU to read from a MAP instead of a MAF with that program? sorry for all the questions, just picking up all the information I can.

Started to make my gauge cluster, took the factory cluster apart, then made a sheet of abs plastic fit in.

Posted Image

Then I cut out the inner mount of the cluster and mounted the abs inside of it

Posted Image

Didn't take many more pics of the cluster install, but I had to modify the factory cluster and take parts off of it to mount it, but now it's mounted and looks great

Posted Image

I get the car back today or tomorrow, and will be swapping the panels over

Posted Image

But woke up this morning and found my truck looking like this!!!!! And last night I was in the garage working in a hoodie and it was nice out, WTF!

Posted Image

Great drive to work haha,

Looks like a post-apocalyptic nuclear winter. Why does anyone live in Canada?

The cluster looks good. Is your center light for check engine or highbeam indicator?

Hahahaha because we can drive these cars anywhere (for 2 months of the year!), and oil money lol I know some people working 30day's up north making 15k+ in one month with not even high school education. But then those guys come and spend thousands on stereos with me lol so I can build drift cars!

Thanks, the yellow is check engine, the place I bought my lights from didn't have any blue lights for high beam, so I tooka single bright blue LED and put it in the bottom of the cluster pointed up that I'm gonna use for it. Otherwise the led light would point right in my eye while driving haha

Smart man! I would have mounted it in the cluster and pissed myself off driving down every dark road lol. I'm starting to think I need an oil job. There's a ton in TX and we don't have to worry about frost bite or being eaten by bears! Have you figured out how much weight you'll be adding in sound equipment?

Haha, I guess our riggers make a little more money here than down there after talking with some friends.

No idea on the weight yet, I`m gonna put it all on a scale before I install it. The subs will be removable, but who knows how often I`ll take them out haha. If I make it to FD or a FD Pro Am event I`ll probably take it out.

Well I know everyone is probably watching Formula D today! But I took a break from that and went off to NPP to see how my headers were coming, and they are almost done!!! just needed to finish up a couple welds and then put the clamps on my 6 part driver side headers. Pics below.

Passenger side in car

Passenger side out of car

Driver side with some of the lower pipes removed

Picking up tomorrow!!!

Well I got the power steering pump and alt back onto the car

Posted Image

View of the headers on from below

Posted Image

Posted Image

Ended up pulling them out so I can get the ceramic coated, damn it was sorta a puzzle on the 6 piece one after I took it out to go back together

Posted Image

Posted Image

Got my power kill switch mounted up

Posted Image

Wired up to my Wirez power distros

Posted Image

Also took the wiring out of my frame rail, just incase I have a minor accident that it doesn't crush the wires, so I heat wraped it and ran it through the engine bay

Posted Image

And got some radiator hoses
