Actually his work isn't to bad. Was just some LBZ to LMM pin differences. Same type setup I've done for a couple boats in the past. Where you use the oem engine harness and bale connectors, and just modify the chassis harness and fuse block.

I on the other hand thought it be cleaner to only used the engine connector leads and ditched the bale connectors. Well jury still out on that one..

~650 for standalone setup reasonable to you? It's 1/3 the cost I paid back in 2012 and I had issues with him(not Ken)

650s probably pretty reasonable. Ken's harness didn't use relays, only fuses to a,master power lug. With that setup you need to use a pretty high amperage rated ignition switch. Only possible issue I saw with it.

The bussman relay blocks I use are about $100 alone. But I like having relays and separate fuses on everything. Then ya can use a 15amp switch like ones pictured above.

Well hopefully next week I can get the turbos and intakes bolted back on for good. Then it's down to wrapping up front end of the engines hardware.

After 90 days of waiting around for a couple stainless threaded collars to be cut that attach those bellows to turbos, had to scrap the idea for now. Long story, but fits definition of a total cluster-F..

So going back to aluminum boost tube and will see if Vibrants HD boost clamps will last longer than their old style. That was 1 minute 15 seconds at 50+psi in a boat. Funny I just posted how crappy some of vibrant stuff is, but they are currently my only option.

Any suggestions on clockwise spring loading tensioner options?

Currently this A/C tensioner for a Cadi / Hummer was winning. However it's a counterclockwise action and light weight spring. Would like to check other options before finalizing this front accessory bracket plate.

Come give me a hand wrapping up these small jobs so it gets there before river freezes over..

Seriously need this puppy on the water and checked out before a 300 mile poker run first of Nov. So call out to anyone who can lend a hand couple days, expenses covered.

Don't miss your opportunity to take a ride, in this hemisphere !
