I have been doing nothing too exciting, lately, just wiring up the engine run harness.
Engine is installed but still need to get the intake adapter cast, I bought a stock 1 barrel just to get the car started the first time, that is why I have been doing wiring.
Got the shifter all installed and mocked up the trim around it, it is in a good place.
I installed a '98 Mustang starter relay, I figured it would be easiest to source if it failed on the road, it bolts right in the same holes as the stock solenoid.
While I was wiring this in it included running the wires on the 3G alternator, all that is left on it is the big charge wire and the exciter wire needs run the ignition switch.
The ignition system is all done as well, I have made a little slide-out drawer to hold it and mounted it behind the console on top of the transmission tunnel.
Today I am running the wires for the fuel pump and the hooking up the fuel gauge wire while I am there, I installed a 5 relay box in the trunk and it will have the fuel pump, air compressor, etc. hooked to it.
I have the wire coming in to make the long battery cables (1 AWG welding cable) as well as some lugs and the 6 gauge wire to run over to the fuse boxes under the hood and the missing charge wire for the alt. I am trying to keep the engine bay pretty clutter-free of wiring as much as possible.
There are a handful of little items I need to run down (like the lower radiator hose and the carb spacer) before I will be ready to start the car for the first time.
