The MSD Ignition relocation was a PITA. I had to change out all the long wires to 16 ya and try to find out what terminals they were. MSD uses Delphi GT 150 and GT 280 terminals. This was so difficult to find but amazon had them and delivered within a day or so.

You are supposed to use a thicker gauge wire when you’re making a longer run with your electrical, which is why I went through the trouble. I presume this is why no one goes through the hassle of doing this.

Once I had all the parts it was easy peezy.

Here’s a pic of the driver side splash shield. This is the original splash shield with new rubber that I installed.

Here’s a pic of my Aeromotive electronic fuel pump and filters. Everything here is about about $550 when you include the Fragola fittings.

I made the bracket to get the correct location and I will be making two more brackets to hold the filters.

I installed my trunk divider panel. On one side it’s painted black and the other side I applied the sound deadening material.

Here’s some more pics of the MSD Ignition wires. As you know, these have to go all the way up to my distributor and coil.

I wanted the shortest distance, so I decided to go through the interior. I’m not wrapping it in shrink wrap so the wires will lay flat underneath the carpet. I might change this once I install the carpet if I feel it's not protected well.

Here are some pics starting from the trunk mounted MSD ignition. The wires go forward and through my trunk divider and forward on the transmission tunnel.

Completing my bracketry for my electric fuel pump & filters. Had I known how little space there was behind the rear axle with exhaust pipes and such, I would have bought a tank with an internal pump and save me the trouble. This is a great system though and should be bullet proof.

Brackets for these filters cost between $20 ea. to $100 ea.

I paid less than $2 each for 1-1/2” conduit pipe hanger brackets at Home Depot.

A Little shrink tubing on the brackets keeps it clean and secure.

Going start running some power today and maybe my ground cable.

This is my diagram. It’s a bit rough but so far this is my plan.

A lot of this stuff came from Amazon and Summit Racing...the cable are all fine strand welding Cable. I opted for a 140 amp circuit breaker instead of a fuse. We’ll see how that works out.

Test Instal with the brackets today. I decided to modify them slightly from yesterday so they mount on front of the filters. There shouldn’t be any vibrating now because the two front mount bracket and the single rear mount will stabilize each other.

Looks good to me. I’ll trim the excess low hanging part of the brackets to clean it up. I also need to get a longer bolt for one of the clamps. Otherwise I’m pretty happy with it.

They’re supposed to be even with the bottom of the tank.

Installed my power post for the alternator and power distribution block for the accessories. Input it here to hide most of it. The alternator wire will run underneath the shock tower bracket.

A little work this weekend, but nothing exciting. I’m waiting for solder slugs and a couple more brass terminals so I can make all my cables.

Been thinking about my fuel lines for both the feed and return line. I think I’m going to have them come up through the trans tunnel and up the firewall To keep everything clean (no gas line in front of the engine).

I’m also running hard lines front to rear.

I need to buy the flare nuts and make the flares.

here I’m straightening copper to help mock up the bends for the aluminum.

Here I’m trying tofigure out the bend for the regulator.

I also mocked up a new bracket for my alternator. I’ll trim the top and bottom to finish it off and spray it black.

I need just a few spacers and have to buy some bolts.

I’ll post a finished pic next weekend.

Finishing up the power side of the cables back to the battery. Used a 140amp circuit breaker. Cross my fingers this all works. 😂


Once I get everything in, I'll go through and clean it all up with brackets and clamps
