    I'm glad I ended up ordering an OMP suede flat bottom steering wheel, the one with the kit looks out of place in my SLC. Just will have to make some overlays for it to change the yellow to orange. Very happy I went with orange harnesses, just have to add the orange diamond stitched seat pads. #superliteslc #slc #racecarreplicas #racelifelife

    CF tub and roof panel all trimmed and rough fitted. I'm telling you guys, just sitting in this thing  you know you're in something special. Something lethal. I really love this car... ...and I f*cking built it.

    I had to step things up, v3.0 of my fuel system is the THERMONUCLEAR option.

I decided to go with a surge tank from #radiumengineering and used my newly acquired legit Bosch 044 pump.

Of course things wouldn’t be right unless I had some bad luck right?  My kit was missing a small washer and it’s literally the last piece I needed before I could close it all up.  So I made my own ... things looked good when I pressure tested in my garage but a short drive revealed my washer was no bueno, leaking fuel!  OK, no choice but to wait for the new washer from @radiumengineering - no biggie.

I got a few blocks of driving in before I had to turn tail - new video up on YouTube.  https://youtu.be/ytmvnRuIJtc ...

    Miracle of miracles, I was able to get my hands onto a legit Bosch 044 pump!  I did a deep dive comparison between the real deal and my latest knock-off, the differences are clear as day when you’ve got the exemplar next to the Pretender.

Check out the video here! https://youtu.be/VECGSiAXrEU

What the heck am I doing with a 4th Bosch pump?! Stay tuned, v3.0 of my fuel system is going to make you go hmmm ... 🤔

    So good news ... the replacement #fitech surge tank from @jegsperformance arrived and all looked good when I opened the box.  The bad news - whoever is doing the final install on these nuts before these guys ship is really reefing down on them!

After backing the ground nut off the washer had deformed enough that it stuck to the nut.  I’m hoping the terminals on my unit will hold up and a stress crack hasn’t already formed!

I’m using lock washers (even though I’m not a fan of them) so I don’t have to torque these nuts down too tight.  I’ll follow up with some torque stripe for a visual aid to monitor for loosening.  Kind of silly to have to be paranoid about breaking these terminals... @fitech_efi recommend you set a lower torque value for these nuts so this type of issue doesn’t continue!

    Confirmed!  I have a counterfeit Bosch 044 pump which is what failed while I was driving.  Things to look for: - dull exterior finish (legit units are shinier)
- creased or sharp staking at upper edge of pump body (legit units are rounded)
- same length binding posts (legit units have a longer positive terminal)

So that sucks but at least I know why my fuel system failed!  It’s too bad the replacement pump I got also failed - before I could even finish installing it!

Fingers crossed that the next unit will be a winner.  4th time’s the charm? 🍀

    Seriously @fitech_efi ?!?! Casting porosity on the brass binding post?! I was literally finger tightening to secure my wire and this popped off.  Casting this part strikes me as a bad idea considering it’s threaded, cost savings can’t possibly be worth the quality risk.  I hope this is a serviceable item!

Huge shout out to the fine folks at @jegsperformance for taking care of me and expediting a replacement!

    So my high pressure fuel pump is on its way out.  Here’s a photo of how the system stands today and my solution!

I’ll be installing a new combination surge tank/high pressure fuel pump made by #FiTechEFI.
