Tried to get the hot air blower to turn on. I think this is the relay that controls it. Have power at the three pins marked in gray and red. Is there something missing from the socket to the right?







I'm thinking it is bad so where does one get a replacement?


Also removed the clock because it runs slow and the speedo because the odometer is broken.



so how do I go about getting these repaired?

Fixed my heating by plugging the connector back on to the engine compartment blower DOH! It turns out the wires that were cut were not for the blower. I found those yesterday hanging down by the valve cover and once I plugged them in everything worked like it should, even the footwell blowers. Lesson learned, look more carefully and don't jump to conclusions. Now I'm wondering what the cut wires are for. :confused:

I also got to install the passenger seat and harness. I didn't trim the feet on this one electing instead to not fit sliders. Still a bit high and a little more forward than I like but as my race rules require the seats bolt to the OEM brackets I'm stuck for now. Have some Corbeau side mounts on the way, hoping thay may improve the situation. Otherwise we'll have to weld in some cross members and bump up a class or two.






I also started installation of the whale tale picked up from a Pelican member. Very nice aftermarket job but it looks like it will require a bit of fettling to get a perfect fit.






Then I drove this home to shakedown the new engine. It has a flat six too!

We decided to replace the rear muffler. Just too quiet for a race car.



The fasteners fought me a little. They've been on there nearly 30 years.




Didn't take too long to wrestle it off though. 23lbs of German suasage muffler.




Found a used but good M&K locally. Only 11lbs.




Ten minutes later:



This is what the car sounded like in the shop with no muffler:




84 Porsche 911 no muffler - YouTube


and with the M&K

A lot quieter. I didn't take a stock muffler recording. Too excited.







But wait. What's that on the parts table. Why it's a Fabspeed muffler delete pipe and it only weighs 2lbs! Let's slap that on see what it's like.




Wow, that's gotta be loud:

Yes, it is kinda loud, but souds pretty good. What about on the street?

You know, that's not too bad, even with the windows open. Not even turning heads. I think we'll leave this on for the next rallycross at least.

It's on my radar Creech but as we are missing the AC compressor and lines some folks might want us to run in MR and I doubt it will be competitve in that class. I am looking for a blown compressor to bolt on but am not adding lines back. Fortunately the Detroit group are a little "cooler" about things like this.
