Got the bulkhead push-lok fitting for the VEMS internal MAP sensor in.
What the ****, this thing is huge. I hope it fits.

Not to be confused with push-to-pass.

You're adding KERS, right?

Fixed the Formula team's autoclave, tested out the hot press (hasn't been used in a while) on some crabon. Gotta change the set up a little to get proper resin flows throughout, should get rid of the weird spot in the middle so I have something GOOD ENOUGH for the 240.

Too late, Alex did already!

Gotta finish the tool for the VEMS hold down bracket. Get some prelim wiring done this weekend since it's supposed to be crap weather.
And this is the retarded direction this build is going.

Skip the uber-welfare relays. Those things are good stomping on and throwing in the garbage and that's about it.

If you're going to use the standard little square ones, get bosch ones. I had one of those hella 40 amp ones as a fuel pump relay for a while. On the dyno if you did a few hard pulls in a row (working the pump hard), it'd get so hot you could almost burn yourself on it and the car would start to lean out.

I have taken to using the biggass 60amp fuel injection relays as used on 960's- also 850's got a 50amp version I think. Much beefier.

Good tip. I'll raid a few at the JY this weekend. Where are they on the 960?

Ok. I could have sworn that is the oval Hella logo on them.

In the engine bay clipped to the inner fender, can't remember what side but they're in fairly plain sight IIRC. They're grey.

Oh shi, you're right. Well I won't use them for the fuel pump either way.
Thanks.

I'd use the standard cube relays, Bosch or Tyco or whatever, cause then you can get new panel mount sockets and terminals for them...

I've located a couple 50Amp relays in that style from Tyco. Should be here pretty soon.

The V2313....

In an attempt to fix the missing lines on the Blaupunkt headunit, I made it 5x worse.
Gotta find a replacement.
Found a pre airbag blinker/horn contact bracket to work with the momo hub.
