I would suggest other Photobucket users download all of your photos before they go broke and you no longer have access.

So Photobucket won't cut me off immediately because I paid for the storage in advance, I guess they are trying to avoid a lawsuit from paying customers...

Anyway:






The heater core leaked, when replacing it I found the blower motor was worn out... Oh well.



On the bright side, this showed up.



And a fake light, still looking for the bezel for the other side.



I also got the stock shifter to work, including the reverse lights and neutral safety switch.

Still need to finish a bunch of wiring and then find an electric speedometer and try to run it off of megasquirt.

We had some crappy weather at the house, so my wife decided we should evacuate....

Challenging my rather limited driving ability.





But it all worked ok, pretty much everyone there drinks lots of beer, so I fit in pretty well.



And thankfully even though we got about 40 inches of rain, the water stopped about 10" below getting into the house.

And wandering around in a slightly sketchy part of Dublin I found a guy to stamp me some EU license plates with anything I wanted. One for the wall in my garage, and one for a very close friend who likes cheesy car movies...

Mind posting pictures of how you did your stock shifter?

Not very sexy, but I am tired of dumping money into this thing.

I couldn't find a reasonable price on an electronic speedometer so I gave up and put in a full display using a Pi & tunerstudio



Trimmed the plastic to fit the 10.1 diagonal screen.

Only dissappointing setback is the 4l80e pump whines a little too much for me.

Pressures and shifts are perfect, but the whine pisses me off so the transmission is going to have to come out again....

It sounds amazing man, we need more videos of it building boost.

Before you take out the tranny again, sometimes its just a clogged filter (though I assume you thought of that).

What converter are you running? Are you sure the shifter adjustment is dead on?

Billet triple disc Circle D

The whine is there even if the shifter is unhooked...😟

I do not recall exactly if this cured the whine, but I had the same issue with mine and this helped, my memory is a tad fuzzy as to if this was all I did but im pretty sure it was a combination of this valve and the shifter adjustment. I had that whine on my 80e as well and it was pretty unbearable

I had a front-pump whine on my GM car years ago. My brother-in-law said it sounded like a blower...

I need to find some 15x8 wheels. It looks like with a little trimming on the lip a 26x8.5 ET Drag may fit at stock ride height.
