Engine almost Done! Decided to go with a Sniper Stealth system instead of messing with my 4150. Almost finished install. Only things left are finishing installing fuel pump and carb feed (when it comes in). Really like the system, clean installation. Hope to fire it up this weekend.

Indeed let us know how it goes and how the self-tuning option works out. Neighbor wants to put one on his streetable 68 mild 350 Cheyanne, and because of the location of the fuel tank, we're thinking of doing the inline pump. It was that or back and forth between the Holley system or the FITech Street system.

Engine is running great. No issues at all. I ordered the USB so I can play with tune but as of now the tires spin in 3rd gear so just going to drive it for a while. Still only have 200 miles on the engine....time for first oil change....

Here is my fuel pump setup...inline pump, super quiet. I bought my holley sniper stealth, pump, and regulator from EFISystemPro.com . I just used the recommended inline pump but plumbed everything in -8an vs the rubber hose that comes with the kit....

Looks like a great setup; very clean. We have plenty of room to hide the pump around the frame rails of his truck; being as though the gas tank is right behind the seats it would probably make too much of a whine. Although, he'd have to hear it over the headers and Flowmaster 40's. :)

Nice! I see a bunch of Rustoleum cans hanging out; any chance the hood and those happened to meet? ;)

Not on the hood. Painted Grill and my valence. Going to get the hood painted matte black polyurethane by someone who can use proper materials and has a booth...

As soon as I get the shop built so the wife doesn't get mad from the paint fumes in the garage, and regrade my lawn to avoid the shop flooding, I'll have a booth set up inside. Drive it on over and we'll shoot it; I'm by the other ocean. :) (And you'll have to leave it here for a couple weeks to cure in this NC humidity.....not like I'd have lots of fun in it or anything...) ;)

Hey, sorry to revive your thread, but I just saw your post about running at Sonoma (in your Mini, but you had planned to take the Mustang), and was wondering if you’ve had any issues tech’ing with the Autopower Roll Bar? I just finished that install on my ‘68, as a part of a “track day” car refresh. I couldn’t get a clear answer from NASA as to whether or not they’d let me out with that bar for their HPDE events. They told me it would be “at the discretion of the individual event techs”. I’ve asked for some advice on here, but the consensus has seemed to be to either build a full on SVRA/VARA-legal competition car, or to stay at home (and not put everyone’s lives in danger).

Sonoma is my local track, and I was hoping to get my first few track days under my belt come Spring. Just wasn’t sure which agency to try and signup with for the best results. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Autopower bars and cages, either the weld in or the bolt in are SCCA legal. They’re also Vintage legal. Fairly certain NASA is ok as well.

You must have the proper back up steel plates behind the bolt in. If you just bolt it in to the stock metal and happen to go Turtle, the down legs will punch through the floor

No issues with the roll bar. A little tricky to get it place but otherwise all good.

For when there was no bar and I had to strap my kids in….

Yeah I kind of figured the need prior, just wonders if you’re keeping them. Shave a pound or two of weight and all that.

Yeh. No need. Pain to work back there with the bar. Not much room to move around. Easier for the driver to lose a few pounds…
