First time out in day light since 2017 .

Don’t mind my scraped up trans pan . That’s what happens when you put that thing in alone on your back . My buddy Charlie is doing the exhaust for me . We are about 80 percent done I am really happy with it . Tucked up real tight .

I'd like to do that to my header collectors, you just cut the flange off and use 3" pipe to slip over?
They didn’t have a flange , just the slip on like that . Used hooker clamps they are very nice .

Threw 7 qts in the trans last night .
Filled radiator up .
Filled power steering up .
02 sensors are in

Went through the Holley set the inputs and outputs . Tested the fans . Tested trans brake input .

Didn’t like the generic I/o settings so created a advanced one so that it will not trigger the fan relay unless the rpm is over 650 so on cranking it won’t draw power through the car .

Need more coolant and trans fluid . Waiting on the smaller oil filter to come today then I can prime the oil pump .

Just about ready
