    Dropped the car off today and talked with Nate and his friend for about an hour. They had some really nice/clean cars there.

    A 2011 Camaro with only 2300 miles, a few Ws6's (one of which was getting a F1 Procharger installed), and another Camaro (LT model).

    Overall, I was very impressed with how meticulous Nate was with all the vehicles, including his own.

    There was some discussion about the discharge piping coming off the FMIC hitting the hood on the SS's. He said that shouldn't be too big of a deal as instead of going straight up into a 90, he could easily make it go from a 45 degree and angle it over.

    Car is being hand washed (by him non-the-less) and going to be started on next week.

    I'll post more info and pics as it gets further along.

    Steve is scheduled to be there between June 15th-19th to tune the cars.

    How do you plan on using the truck inlet hat without having a vertical radiator?

    I had this discussion in another FI thread because I heard the same thing. I was informed that the charge side piping allows it to tuck up nicely and there is plenty of clearance. I believe on the 2011 ATI FMIC the elbow is different allowing for this.

    After further consideration, I decided to just drop the tank to install the fuel pump as opposed to the trap door option.

    Fuel system is complete as well as the gauges.

    I have more pictures and further details, but here is a quick shot of what the gauges look like installed.

    From top to bottom: fuel gauge, A/F Wideband, and vac/boost gauge.

    I ended up swapping out the original boost gauge for the Autometer 4907 Ultra-Lite II series vacuum/boost gauge.

    Nice work, Jon! I did the dual gauge pod in our car for air/fuel and fuel pressure. Now I need to add a trans temp gauge and am not sure where to put it. I am with you on the fuel tank -- I'll spend the time to drop it before cutting a hole in the car.

    3rd week of June she will be on the streets again.

    I also ordered a drive shaft safety loop. I realized I never installed one as I was having trouble finding one for my BMR Trak Pak set-up and PST 3.5" drive shaft. After researching though, I believe the Lakewood unit will work.

    In other news, I received my Camaro caliper stickers the other day. Once she gets done, I plan on painted the calipers red and applying the black Camaro stickers. I think it will give the car a nice touch with the machine finish face/black powder-coated rims.
