Purchases are starting to show up, build will resume next weekend starting with brake lines and continuing onto the fuel setup







Slowly assembling the engine and cleaning up and painting any bolts that needed it.



intake test fit, I will be powder-coating the manifold black. (intake is an NERP design)

Started work on the brake lines, I will go into detail on this as it was very difficult to find out which brake nut sizes are used on our cars so some of it was trial and error. Also if you didn't know, many of these brake lines are either discontinued or hard to find so you will either need to make them or have a shop make them for replacements. I ended up picking an OTC master brake line kit as it had everything I needed for this job and its semi portable if I have to make any flares inside the car.

Brake nuts used:
Metric Bubble Flare 10 x 1.0 (2 on master cylinder, 2 for front brake lines, 6 for rear brake lines (SVT))
Metric Bubble Flare 12 x 1.0 (2 on Master cylinder)
I will also be using 3/16 double flare nuts for the T going into the cabin, Wilwood Proportioning valve, and the T to the rear calipers.

Rear brake lines:


I also made a block off plate out of the existing sensor for my return fuel rail:


Mounted up the intake and fuel rail, I think I am going to do a quick dryfit of the engine for when I size all of the fuel lines and fit the last of the electrical:


Picked a spot for the Fuel Pressure Regulator:
