In this action-packed update, we finished up the bulk of our electrical work by finding a home for all of the wires that run into the cabin. Included in this bird’s nest is the drive by wire gas pedal wiring, speedometer and gauge wiring, fuel pump lead, and ECU outputs.
After Fun with Wiring, we plumbed and routed the radiator and heater hose, reinstalled the front and rear suspension, and updated the rear brakes to better slow down all that LS3 horsepower.
Then we put the thunder in Project Thunderbolt by fabricating an exhaust system that will compliment the character of this car perfectly. We based the exhaust on Summit Racing’s Rod Builder Exhaust Kit, which includes enough piping and bends to build practically any custom exhaust system that you could dream up.
I think there’s a good chance we’ll hear this beast run in the next update!
