Another update: The car now runs!!! I only have manifolds on it though, and the coolant system isn't hooked up, so I can't let it run for very long. A friend of mine is a professional calibrator, so he came over and programmed the computer for me. The engine uses a mix of components, so we had to cobble together a tune for it. Once the car has an exhaust and cooling system we will take it to the dyno for the final tune.
Last weekend I bent up the coolant lines out of 1.5x.065 steel tubing. The fine folks at Autozone let me walk around in the back looking for the rubber hoses, and I was able to find everything I need. Now I just need to put a bead on the ends of the metal tubes, and the cooling system will be pretty much done.
Here are some pictures taken this week:
The fuel pump and filter (I still need to make a shield to protect from flying rocks):
The engine oil cooler:
The engine with the MAF I picked up (the engine can be tuned to run without, but it's nice to have):
The switch box:
Some shots of the coolant lines I made:
