Fuel fitting came in on Friday... M14 x 1.5 female inverted flare to -6AN fitting. Still had to be modified. The threads on the original hardline appeared to be too short for the flare to seal against the adapter fitting. May have also been a problem with the depth of the threads in the adapter fitting being too shallow. Machined off .125" and modified a tap to get threads past the inverted flare.

COP's finished... picked up the throttle cable and all of the wiring connectors today. Swaybar mount bushings showed up yesterday. Rear bushings from an ae86 gts are a direct fit. Front bushings I ordered will need to be modified.

Fuel filter relocation bracket made. Having it flash chromed tomorrow to keep it from rusting. Fuel lines were also made this weekend but I need to shorten the bottom hose an inch or two.

Until you show more (and better) pictures of your hack job X8, I think you should just sit quietly in the background, and listen.

Rue can out fab/build/machine you in his sleep.

I came up with several smart ass things to reply... could't decide on one. Just pull your head out of your ass and realize that where I chose to mount the fuel filter is the most practical.

 

There is no room as is for the driver side exhaust manifold and I needed to mount the filter away from it and still make the filter accessible for easy replacement in the future

The chassis I have has a bent frame rail. It's before any of the suspension so it doesn't effect anything but the aesthetics but it bothers me knowing it's there. So everything I'm making is with the mind set that I can remove it and swap it onto a clean chassis in the future. Some minor bullshit may need to be modified but the bulk of my fabrication will be able to swap directly onto the next x7 I pick up.

Decided to delete the iac and all of the coolant lines that went to the intake manifold. Made a delete plate this morning.

 

Wiring harness is almost finished... missing cooling fan relay, tach pull up, fuel pump/circuit opening relay wire, coolant temp gauge wire, and tps signal wire... and DONE!

Standalone... I'll just tune around it. Adaptronic already had a start-up map for the 1uz with cops. I sent them an email asking how they had wired up their iac so I made sure my wiring matched theirs. Got tired of waiting for a reply. As soon as I removed the wires I got an email back from them.
