Hello guys,

Just a quick question. How or where do you take the cables for the boost gauge, wide-band and J&S to the engine bay?

There is a hole in the firewall where the hood release cable goes through. Bust out a 1/2" drill bit and open it up some more. Then get a big rubber grommet or some other sealant to put a ring around the hole.

I have another question. I have a vacuum block to feed all the vacuum line's. Where do I source the vacuum from though? Do I still use the IM as source? My vacuum block has a big sized ferrule. Do I replace it with something smaller?

A good place to get Vac for the block would be the hose that went to the PCV , it no longer needed is is a big hose or change to whats needed for your block

I am almost done. The one thing that bugs me and I am not sure it should be this way, but my DP is almost up against the aluminum block on the back of the AC. I mean it is so close I cannot fit the flat end of a small screw driver between them. I do not have my wrap on yet, but I am sure if I do put it on they would make contact. Is it supposed to be like this or can I "trim the corner of the AC connector or what else can I do?

You could also make a small dent in the dp. Mine is really close too.
