    Im running the dual sync. I timed that thing by hand and fired it up and havent touched it since. Right at 15 degrees at idle and I set the injection to run off the cam specs sequentially.

    I have a ton more to post on what was done but thought I should share the startup video then when I get time I will post up the pictures and details.

    I like that system, bunch of guys making killer power with it. About the only drawback I can point to with my ProFlo 4 is no room to expand for items like play back, additional input channels, etc.

    To continue the write up … the manifold is done and the harness is done and the first startup was done. Just so you all know; a 1-1/2 hole in the firewall is all you need. Run the main harness from the inside of the car to the outside passing the big ends and wires until you get to the I/O connector; leave that in the car. Then run the power one from inside to out. I ran most of the harnesses under the fender I have a couple of shots of that.

    As with all manifolds they are not CNC'ed:

    A little scribing and blue magic and you can see the issue:

    Cleaning them up:

    And then you get this:

    Using my boroscope:

    This was the old setup:

    Now to the manifold mock up, I wanted to put the regulator on the manifold and worked on setting up something that might hold that:

    Here is a try fit with the fuel gauge:

    I found banjo connectors that supported 70psi and are fuel grade:

    Added the Knock sensors:

    Mounted the MSD on the firewall:

    Here is how the wires look:

    Final product drivers side:

    Passenger side:

    All wires cleaned up and under the fender.

    Update: I worked late Christmas night and found that the dominator fits under the console.

    Here is how it looks under the console:

    Here is how it looks with the interior put back:

    Nicely done, you have a nice car there. What's the switch on the shifter?

    Launch Control AKA 2Step for a manual gear box. I did a write up on that too.

    Wow. The last couple of threads in this section make me feel like a caveman.
