Hoping for some opinions on a new route for ic piping. If I rework the wiring harness for the vacuum pump I can relocate it to the passenger side then I would need to remove and rework the radiator overflow tank but I might have enough room then to run the pipe to the throttle body thru driver side radiator support without having to move battery and still be able to keep a/c and cruise.  

What do you guys think?  Also in the pics I have the reworked power steering reservoir mounted and lines connected.

I'm guessing those elbow couplers are only on the intercooler to keep stuff out of it and you don't plan on routing charge pipes back through the passenger side. Can't wait for it to be running.  The video was even better than pictures in my opinion.

Well decided to bite the bullet and relocate the vacuum pump and drill out a hole for the piping on driver side radiator support. Thanks for the motivation I needed a little push.

I have alot less under my hood, but I'm sure you can make it happen.  I think you'll be happy with the look and results once finished.

I have so many things I want to do on my ca and the list seems to get longer daily.  You on the other hand are getting stuff done

Ok after 9 months I got the transmission back and just put it back in.  Hope it works this time. Felt like waiting for a third child. Hopefully just need to button up a few more details and I will be ready to test fire it up. I've got a couple more wires, a few vacuum lines and a couple of hose clamps to install before I ohm everything out and put the ecu back in.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE BUT YOU JUST MADE MY DAY!! I've been utterly frustrated with photobucket since it made a lot of these forums useless, not even getting to see the wheel thread since I am a new member. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Nice job!  I want to know how happy you are with the intake when you get a chance.  I have been thinking about upgrading too.  The cost for the mpi switch is?

Sounds good, glad to hear it running.  I see you got the intercooler piping figured out too.  Much cleaner and probably a lot more responsive.  I want to see it blasting down the road now!

When I get all the bugs worked out she goes back into the body shop for paint.  

BTW I really like the intake. I had it on already before. It was made by Chad from here on SQC. The only issue I had was trying to mate it up to the M9 head. It has a much bigger rear water port than all of the others. So after saying that it would work better with any of the other heads besides the M9. If you plan on using the same head I did you will need to buy a make your own intake gasket. I bought a BBC thick cut your own gasket set from Jegs and only had to use 1 so now I have an extra just in case.

I'm a bit hesitant to invest all the money to convert and not be happy.  How happy are you with the change?

Ok well I'm not one to talk anyone into doing something they aren't ready to do. With that being said, I have 3 1988 Conquests. 1 has a 351W, another is mostly stock TBI with a td06h 16g. This one has quite a few mods but not finished.  So which one is the most fun???  Depends. If I want to run to town real quick right now the stock one. Want to feel the torque and do donuts the v8, hopefully this one will be the quick road course and straight line and even become the jump in and go after hours of tuning. I enjoy working on them all but do enjoy finishing projects with a fun and reliable end goal.
