    12/29 update: it was a nice day so i got some work done.

    i extended the coil wire and the iat sensor wires and moved the coil to the area just above the tfi module. since i couldn't decide where to put it, i ended up taking both wheels off and both of those plastic/rubber wheel well liner thingies out. my wife was really embarassed because she worries about what the neighbors think and i was working out in the driveway right by the street.

    i don't care what the neighbors think, but i do wish i had a garage ...

    anyway, i also connected the maf to the throttle body and started working out how the piping to the fenderwell is going to work. i have two 90 degree bends, but i'm not too worried about it because the maf is all the way up next to the throttle body, and there is about 8" or so from the last bend to the maf. i am making it out of pvc; i plan to paint it a silver/chrome color.

    I thought you were like a 20 something single guy. Youre older than me :rlaugh:

    J/K! Glad it's coming along...My wife has just learned to ignore me when Im working on the car.. Now, when Joe or Rog come over and help out, that's a different story.

    Keep us updated on the progress!

    i'm hoping to start it today, but i have a problem/question:

    the belt is going to hit the a/c line. can i just bend the a/c line? should i bend it up or down?

    Be very careful how you bend the line - it will kink, but you probably knew that. It's best to do a series of bends rather than just one.

    From the photo, it almost looks as though you could just slightly bend the A/C line to the point of clearance just by pushing it forward from the area located just behind the power steering reservoir. You’ll have to judge that area yourself to know for certain, but it would seem like the easiest course of action to me? :shrug:
