That heat shielding looks like exactly what DEI makes... I have some and if it fits I'll probably use it but I'm not too worried about it with how I have things figured out now... I mean the CHRA is bolted directly to the exhaust housing so I'd expect that to be the hottest part by far.
And yes I'm running HKS Hipermax II coilovers on the car... I have a set of H+R coilovers I'm selling for $600 if you're interested in picking those up. They came on the car so I dont know a lot about them but they should have about 30k on them and look to be in good condition, just needing a little cleanup.
Now as for updates... I've got some.
I have finally found a way to route the oil drain line that works, however I'll need a longer drain line so I have to go buy that... I'll post a photo below of the rough intended routing. It requires a decent bend on the oil drain line but its relatively flexible. The other concern is that it puts too much stress on the oil drain flange but there's not too much pressure on it so I think it should be fine.
I also got the rest of the fuel system installed by mounting the FPR and cutting the final fuel lines and installing them.
Fred finished the power and ground wires and it looks awesome. As soon as we flip the switch on the breaker the car will have power now, but we're going to go over everything carefully before we actually do that.
Oh, we also cleaned the hell out of the workspace, which is pretty nice. We spent hours and hours and are making use of a new shelf, its pretty sweet.
just an engine bay update... might even be less in there than last time due to test fitting and redoing things.
battery wiring in the rear
had to cut some brackets off the rear seat to make room for battery/wiring
iPhone digital level application says that the angle of the feed/drain is only 9 degrees. I obviously suck at estimating angles...
projected routing of the oil drain... just need a new longer length of hose
fuel return line made... runs between fuel rail and fuel pressure regulator. heatshrink tubing to protect from rubbing wiring nearby.
installing return line on rail
cutting the length for the other part of the return line
fuel lines... you see 2 return lines going to and from the FPR, and also one of the feed lines running to the front of the rail
