Most of the pink wires go to fused ignition power. Check each wire against your diagram to make sure.

The reason it is ruined, is because the outlet port was made larger... this will prevent the sealing ability of the rotors, letting boost leave through the way it came in.


I can see the point about the outlet port. But getting back to the internal walls, the ones on my Fiero are still smooth and shiny and my supercharger puts out 11 psi of boost. My boost is so efficient that I'm working on the intercooler right now to get the last few degrees of KR out. . Maybe the strong boost is there because I run the series V supercharger but I cannot believe that grooves or ridges on the inner walls have nothing to do with boost. Maybe it just depends on how deep they are?

all blowers will wear in with some grooves. If your gen5 didnt look to have any, I am sure you could have run your finger along them and felt a few small ridges.

It looks like it will clear everything, i might have to modify a little after i got it on the cradle, but i want to drive my car for as long as possible. It will probably be coming out next week.
I got my fuel pump ordered from TREperformance
http://treperformance.com/i...-pump-1984-1987.html Its a knock off of the walbro i figure it's worth a shot, i'll make sure to post if i have a problem with it.

My computer is boxed up to be sent to GMtuners.
It took me literally 30 minutes to modify my thermostat housing. My motor mounts came from Purple Reign.
Every thing should be wrapping up in the near future. I'm ready to start powder coating tomorrow.

I have the wiring loomed up and almost done, i still have to hook up the wires to the computer and c500 and c203, but that shouldn't be bad.

The engine is now in the car and everything seems to fit, it will be hard to keep everything off of the exhaust but it doesn't look imposible

Not entirely the weirdest... note the dog bone in this old pic in Purple Reign's car... Been in there for at least 7 years now...


Wow... I just noticed that the only thing from that pic still in the engine bay, is that dog bone...

I'm still trying to stay off it because the clutch is not broken in yet, i noticed a small amount of slip when i give it a little more throttle in 5th gear, is this normal and will it go away when the clutch finishes breaking in???
