    No I don't. They were on the motor when I sold it.

    You'll probably need to integrate the stock style senders to run your gauges. I had the same issue when we installed Vortec heads on the 350 in my wife's Corvette. Needed to make an adapter to run the sender for the temp gauge.

    I'll have to read up on some other build threads and see what other people have done. I'll have some time today to search around, I'm on jury duty.

    Cleaned up all of the wiring on the drivers side. I disconnected the battery to fix some of the connections and after starting the car, the oil pressure gauge works. Not sure if it was because of disconnecting the battery or just decided to work all of a sudden. Got the tach working too. All that was needed to do was connect and run a wire from PCM #10 on red connector to white wire that runs to the tach. Simple fix. I also removed the radiator since the new one will be here tomorrow and put on the new tuned port emblem for the bumper.

    Got all of the wiring done for the gauges. Just waiting on adapters which will be here tomorrow and they should be done. Changed the oil and gave the engine bay a quick detail. Just have to put the hood on and then take it for a test drive!

    Took the car out for the first time tonight. Ran great on the inital run around the neighborhood. Stopped and got gas and swung by my friends house to show him the car. Jumped in to take him for a ride...turned the key, nothin. Wire was shorting out on the starter. Caught it in gear went 2 miles down the road, power steering pressure hose blows out. Ran to the Dollar Store bought some ATF and doctored it back together and drove it home. I'll get these problems fixed in the morning. My nice clean motor is now covered with fluid.

    Other than those two problems.....the car ran awesome. Well worth all of the time and money that is for sure. Now we will just see how long the rear lasts.

    Sorry to hear about the troubles. Better to get it all sorted out now though so she'll be ready for June.

    Just minor problems that were easy fixes. Running fine now. Had it out all day today and made it to the first show in our area. Lots of people had to stop and look twice after seeing what was in the engine bay.

    Great news and glad you got the initial kinks out and they were minor. Congrats on a badass build.

    Huge car show today in our area today. Over 150 cars. It was a great turnout. Still trying to work out some of the kinks in the car. I've had to bleed the clutch 4 or 5 times already. It seems like after a long drive it needs to be bled. Earlier this week there was a ton of air and it took quite a few times for the clutch pedal to come back. Thank god I got the remote speed bleeder from Tick when I ordered the master cylinder. Also I think my MAF is junk. I bought it used on tech and when I got it, it was descreened. The idle is all over the place and practically stalling out after it is warmed up and I come to a stop. Before that it is fine.

    Looks damn nice!

    Our car came with a hacked up MAF and a stumble. Really had no affect on the idle. Scanner showing anything out of line?

    Thanks! It was throwing a code for the MAF the other day when we had it on the scanner. When accelerating from a dead stop it stumbles a little then straightens out as I get into the throttle. Frost mentioned how to reset the TPS (unplug for 10secs with the key turned to the on position then replug) and that it can take up to 100 miles for the idle to learn where it should be. He also recommended IAT temps to be 45*-75* which I can't get without turning the screw on the throttle body way up which has the rpms over 1200 at idle. Lower 900-1000rpms has IAT's reading 95-100 which is where Chris's car is. I'm hoping the idle straightens out or maybe I just need a new TPS???? Who knows. I'll play around with it more this week.

    Put a new MAF in today after work. The idle seemed a bit better even after it warmed up although I didn't get to take it out for a test drive since it was raining all day. Hope it at least straightens out the stumble. I also scored a good deal on a lightly used Autometer Tach. That was delivered today and installed. I originally tried using the stock gauge, but it was way off. Hopefully the weather clears up over the next few days and I can take it out and see if the new MAF straightened out my problems.

    If I recall, it can take quite a while for the PCM to learn from sensor feedback. I have heard that up to 100 miles of driving may be required for everything to settle in. Frost also recommended re-setting the fuel trims to "0" in order to speed up the learning process when bad sensor info has been assimilated by the PCM.
