    Thank you. I am good with the light. There are no airbags left in the car minus the steering wheel and it is disconnected.

    Got the new fuel system today. Supported a local shop that had one for sale:

    In with the triple pump, out with the twin pump:

    -10an feed on the new system vs -8an on the previous kit:

    What it looks like working around the cage and race seats:

    Got the entire twin pump system removed and is drying out to be ready to ship.

    Details on the new kit:
    - Fore Level 2
    - 274 primary pump
    - 285 twin secondaries
    - FC3 controller with hobbs activation switch
    - -10an feed, -8an return
    - 128mm stainless filter

    Should have the car up and running in a few days depending how busy work gets. Stay tuned.

    Congrats TW. Is it typical to have different sized pumps on the hat? First time I really notice that.

    Niiiiiiiice! What's the hose routing up front? I'm -10feed, split to twin -8 feeding back of each rail, front of each rail to regulator, -8 return.

    Fore recommends primary pump of 274 over the 285 due to 25% less heat. So added the twin 285s for under boost.

    -10an feed into the HPFP block. -8an from there to both regs, rails, and return.

    Fuel lines are made, ran, and buttoned up.
    Regulators are mounted, sealed up, and ready to rock.
    Rails and injectors are good to go.
    Fuel hat is wired up and the lock collar is on.
    4 gauge power wire is pulled with the fuse block installed, all good.
    Hobbs switch is installed and the wires pulled to the fuel controller.
    Vacuum lines are on.
    Interior is all back in place minus the rear seat delete.
    Fender liners are back in the car.

    All that is left is finish up wiring in the fuel controller and drilling and mounting a ground. Should be wrapped tmrw and able to check for leaks.

    Here's a dark, hard to see image:

    Some more progress on the fuel system tonight:

    pumpsdone.jpg fuelpressure.jpg fuelpressure1.jpg fc3.jpg

    I had SO MANY leaks with these fittings. I feel like I am really having to crank them to eliminate the leaks. Don't feel super comfortable with them. For whatever reason, I preferred the off brand ones from my last setup. They just seemed more positively connected if that makes sense..

    I did start the car but it was after 9:30p, so it was brief. I'll pick up the leak solving tomorrow. May just need different fittings to make me feel more confident. Hate to spend the cash but would hate burning to death more.

    You do have to crank the hose termination fitting pretty tight for sure. Are they the teflon lines? If so also make sure the end of the hose cut is clean and square, and the ferrule is seated properly up to the last step in the lip. Also the ferrule is 1 time use so make sure not to take them apart unless you have to. I had zero leaks with the exact same system. AN lines are a pain for sure, but teflon is by far the easiest. Well except for push lock, but that shouldn't be used for anything important imo.

    It's flexlp line. I have no issues with the hose termination. The leaks are coming from the mating of the hose ends to the male connection points. The previous fittings I had fit snug and didn't need too much torque. I have been tightening and tightening these ones to stop the leaks, some may just need replaced if anything for my comfort.

    Should be all buttoned up now. Was able to fire up and move the car around the garage. I'll do a couple more idle cycles before driving down the road - then it's time to give her hell!

    Some shots of the fuel system under the hood in the daylight:
