Add an additional ground when trying to start. Its funny how easy it is to forget a ground which can prevent starting.

Pulled the starter and bench tested voltage drop. It was going all the way down to 4v. So, it's at the shop being rebuild at the moment.

Tacked up the Intercooler piping and the wastegate dump which I'll weld up tomorrow, and just kinda put the front end on...

You'd never know!

Had an issue with my MSD starter and took it up the street to be rebuilt. They gave me a completely different core and put the nose from my old on onto it, and told me it'd be fine..

Well, now my ring gear is toast. Engine came back out and I took the tone ring off, but Clutchmasters doesn't sell only the tone ring so that'll be shipping out to them to be rebuilt. Ordered another MSD starter from Summit in the meantime and reinstalled the engine so I can address a few issues I found.

-Radiator outlet hose too close to alternator pulley, will be redoing.
-Making all the rear coolant lines out of 3/4" aluminum instead of rubber since there will be a lot of heat back there.
-Fabricating the 3" turboback

The crossover pipe is mighty close to the coolant temp sensor in the rear as well as the crank sensor. I'll see if theres enough room to relocate it to go under the car instead of behind the engine as well although I'd hate to remake it.

But yea... this sucks. I dont have the balls to goto the rebuild shop yet and tell them what happened not that I'm sure they'd care

That shop should certainly stand behind their word. That sucks all the same.

When you're redoing the coolant lines in 3/4" aluminum, what kind of connections are you using?
