    Finishing up the wiring routing for the fuel pressure sender. The three-conductor cable is about 6 feet long. Too long for the distance travelled to the dash, but for now I’m just getting it out of the engine compartment. Simple wrap in convolute and tape, and pop through the firewall, and...

    Intake modifications pending, We work on finishing up a couple more items. I wanted an in-dash fuel pressure gauge and it turns out it was a good thing that I did. I’ll explain after I detail installation. After looking at option I decided on an in-dash gauge from Speedhut with an in-line...

    You can still drill a hole in the tank and poke it inside, it’s not too late!! Disclaimer: don’t do that.... obviously. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I had the same reservation, based on the decrease in surface area of the shorty filter... and I thought about shortening the 90. I definitely like having the larger filter, and I think the 3/8” you took off would be enough to move the clearance to an acceptable distance from the frame. I wasn’t...

    From what I understand it only lets you direct post so many pics. I have to post hyperlinks to hosted pics, not the pics themselves. Total PITA. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My Intake Air Filter was the standard depth 4” Spectre air filter but the clearance bugs me; when the engine is running, I envision lots of knocking of the filter on the frame just with the normal jumping of a running engine, much less an engine torquing against the engine mounts. To address the...

    When raising and lowering the Roadster and turning the steering wheel back and forth I keep hearing a knock-like sound. After some looking around and moving various parts I determined be the Passenger Side tie rod end ball-joint is bad and the tie rod needs to be replaced. And while I still have...

    With Cooling completed, I’ll move on to Intake and Power Steering. I started these somewhat simultaneously with or even before cooling due to mounting and fitment but due to parts deliveries did not finish until after. I decided to go with the Spectre I take because I like the flashy silver...

    Chewy, another think to note. I used edwardB’s method and thought I accounted for everything, but missed one. I thought I accounted for enough spacing in between the dash and the 3/4” crossbar to accommodate the dash covering but I needed more space. As a result I had to redrill my holes in the...

    I’ve had a few personal items taking up time lately, so I’ve been a little light on the updates, but here we go. Engine Cooling continued. For expansion tank mounting, I decide to use Edwardb’s method with two upper mounts attached to the radiator crossbar and a lower support/stabilizer on...

    The Engine Cooling system and the Power Steering systems have taken a back seat, but with the wiring momentarily stalling while waiting on parts, time to return to those. Cooling first. Taking edwardb’s advice I ordered the Moroso Coyote expansion tank, and followed his basic support method...

    After calls to Factory Five, they went above and beyond the call of duty (in my opinion) and shipped me a new Oil Temp gauge minus the old(?) two-wire connector. I received that yesterday and will be replacing that one this weekend. Will also have more pictures of my dash back wiring. I...

    I do understand Ohms law, being an electrician, so I’m very familiar with the mathematical relationship that voltage, amperage and resistant have. The issue you describe is exactly like we used to have with LED lamps in residential fixtures, so I grasp that no problem. I share your dim (pun)...

    Called Factory Five and evidently the gauge set has been redesigned recently enough that the Engineering Team at F5 hadn’t gotten wind of it. The new ones are LED backlit by the car’s 12V and don’t have the black 2-wire inverter-powered Harness or connectors. Just the 3-wire black-white-red...
