Installed my new heater control valve. It is a very nice unit, but the M4 bolt that clamps the cable stripped easily so I needed to get a replacement...no big deal, but just a heads up

Out with the old, in with the new.



Also installed a secondary fuel pump relay a la Dave Barton, hopefully this will give my fuel pumps a few extra volts and prolong the life of the main fuel pump relay.



Removed the airbox thermostat and glued the pre-heat flapper shut with some JB Weld.


My original intake hose was already cobbled together and since I no longer needed the venturi section (no more EGR) I found a suitable 70mm replacement hose on McMaster. I also cleaned up some of the vacuum lines in the engine bay.
