    Down to the last wire ... I had to wait for a grommet since I ran wires without waiting for the one I ordered to get here ... Yes I am impatient ... I found a split one from summit. "Seals-it Split Grommet Seals SGS35100"

    Then I had to make a bracket for the MAP sensor ... I did not want this on the firewall so in keeping with the theme all hidden under the air cleaner. I fabricated this bracket:

    Job Complete, everything is hidden under the air cleaner and connected to the cowl so when the hood is closed people see is a SBC with MSD ... and what really lurking is a 550hp (maybe more once tuning is done) 409 DART SBC with 11.2 compression, Fuel Injection, Sequential Ignition, AFR 220 heads and AC+PS and TKO 5speed (which looks like a four speed) :bowtie:

    Very well done man. Looks great with everything tucked away. What hood do you have on it? No way that air cleaner with spacer fits a stock hood.

    It a 1979 L88 Steel Hood with 2in Cowl ... it does fit and tucks in nicely. What great is you hear it from the windshield when it is running.

    Initial start up was fine and when you set the timing to 15 degrees during cranking it was fine ... until step 2 where you set time to what the computer is doing and use static timing of 25. Once that was done the inductive delay was done. The idle RPM was stuck around 2000 and I could not drop it down. I adjusted the main screw as low as possible and it would not go down.

    I took the car for a 2 mile drive to see if the learn table would clear it out and it did not ... then started to look for a vacumm leaks, nothing. Covered the throttle blades with my hands and nothing, covered the IAC with tape and nothing ... then while playing with the secondaries I saw if you force them back more if dropped and OMG I found an adjustment screw for the secondaries it is the little one on the right. Adjusted that and now the care is awesome.

    2nd gear hammer drop spins the tires and I hit the 6.8k rev limiter 5 times before I know to switch gears. My face :crazy:
