Couldn't agree with you more Mikey, I'm really happy with the end result so far! I appreciate everyone hanging with me through this, know a lot of it has dragged out, just appreciate the extra eyes on it and help / advice along the way.

Quick recap:

The name Salty is there because it came from myrtle beach, sc, and it's going to be a rowdy *****. She's going to have her tongue hanging out and flipping everyone off. Better suspension than the blazer, 6.0, T56, long tubes, BIG cam....

Thank you, I've been busy finishing up softball season and scaring people in it!!

Found out my fuel sending unit isn't fairing well in the new G machine. Just been rolling and giving joy rides, smiling, and no F given. Put some gas in it the other night, just a small amount to make sure I had fuel and then lost track of time. Sending unit was showing smidge under 1/2 tank coming home from work Friday. Went to pass a slow diesel truck, third gear, toe into it, and acceleration flattened out after 3k. I short shifted and proceeded to get around the truck but something wasn't right. Gathered my thoughts, downshifted and got into it watching AFR gauges. Sure enough, I was losing fuel.

Got home thinking the walbro was going bad, then realized I couldn't remember how long ago I'd put gas in it. I'd put 8.28 gallons in 186 miles ago. LMAO! That's NOT going to work! Haven't seen the bottom of the tank since installation!



Fired up the laptop and checked things out, sending unit was saying I had a crisp 11 gallons in the tank. Figured I'd get to the station and throw some gas at it to see if it clears up. Made it 2 miles before I was on the side of the road. Let me tell you, lack of insulation and window felts is not good when it's 40 degrees outside and you're not dressed for it! First time I've ran out of gas in 20 years! Got some help, got gas, and she's tearing up the roads again.

Made a new Audi S4 owner salty last week. Came up to a light and he started inching forward.. mmkay.. I pulled on him at a light then exited the highway to an on ramp fast enough to leave him trailing behind, just about 4 wheel drift, really figuring the car out and it is a blast! I got up to speed, hit cruise, and just smiled. When he came around me in the fast lane the look on his face was the most priceless work of art I'd ever seen!! Wish I had a camera going so I could share his face, THAT'S what this build is about, had me laughing all the way home.

Stopped and got a pic this morning, was hoping the tailpipes would cool off enough to get some plumes but no go. Have 350 miles on the new front suspension and am seriously loving it!! About time to swap out the cheap napa pads up front to ceramics or bigger rotors/calipers now. You can see the front wheels are a little dusty. Knocking off triple digits does that, will get a better pic before I wash it.

Are you running spacers in the rear? I might have missed that above...

Yessir, 1.25" spacers front and rear, back up to trusting 40 lug nuts while driving like a jack ass. The other not so smart part is leaving the 7/16X20 lug studs in place. I should really drill out the axles/rotors and press in beefier studs.

LOL, as long as you keep 'em tight I'm sure they'll be good.

Also, my car had the 0-10 ohm fuel level sender. You sure you don't have that style? Or vice-versa, you need that style?

Positive. When I first purchased the tank I ordered a 0-90 sending unit to work with the oldsmobile digital dash. After I realized that wasn't going to pan out I got a Dorman 240-30 ohm sending unit to keep the LS ecm happy.

I almost purchased this sending unit but thought it was overkill. Now it may be necessary.
