Detonation detector I made for ignition tuning. Mount the copper lug to the engine block, power on device and listen for detonation via auxiliary port.

After a total of about 8 hours on the highway this weekend, Id say that the car is about ready for Carlisle.

Yayyy books and parts. New windshield rubber from Thailand. Hope it works.

Washed out, just like the paint.

All you need is a sound amplifier, wire and a piece of copper tube(doesnt have to be copper) or a clamp. Take the housing apart, cut the microphone out, solder leader wires to the circuit board and secure it so the solder joints dont break. Take the microphone component, solder leader wires to it, and glue/attach mic inside some copper tube. Crush the copper tube to make the lug before putting the mic in. You can also glue the mic to an alligator clamp if that works better.

Then just bolt it to the engine, preferably on the cylinder wall. My 22re has an open bolt hole where a knock sensor could have went so it works out perfect there. I bought this sound amplifier at radioshack(30$) but they are available cheaper online.

Small updates:

Portowall broke off on I-85 which is fine since they were air cracking. New tires and POW's are in. I just have to install them.

Tidied up a few more things and got some "Project Mu" master cylinder reservoir boots to save my engine bay paint if my cap loosens any.

This is not my car btw

Got a windshield seal from thailand and it went in with no issues :tu: Also some factory service manuals to study since I still have mostly original chassis wiring and a factory rearend. Plus they are just cool. A link to the seller is below for anyone who needs a windshield seal and some others for a MKII

Well the fuel pump went out at lunch yesterday. Im sure everyone knows but DO NOT BUY A SUMMIT HIGH PRESSURE FUEL PUMP because its a loud piece of shit that will only last 4 months. I planned to replace it later this year with a nice one but its forcing me to do it now. So an Aeromotive 11109 inline is on the way. Have any of you ever ran a priming pump in front of the pressure pump on your efi systems or should the siphon created by the gravity drain be sufficient? I know a lot of efi cars have in tank prime pumps but im not trying to modify my tank anymore than it is.

Below is a hand drawing of the front view of the tank. You can see the fuel line goes directly to the top of the fuel tank adding more load to the pump via suction head. This is ok for a low pressure diaphragm pump but not for a centrifugal/high pressure, efi pump. Im going to make that come straight out to ease some strain off of it. The thought is to possibly add a diaphragm pump before the pusher so as to provide consistent fuel supply to it. Has anyone else done this or ran a single pump setup with this type of tank?

In other news, i took some pics without whitewalls the other day.

this wagon is so awesome. i have a 69 rt52 that im swapping. i am getting really close on mine but running into small issues. attemping a 22r/20r with a 5 speed, but my carb hits the hood. whats your clearance like with the efi intake? 22re might be better anyways. How close is ur oilpan to the crossmember?

really loving this project, not sure how i missed it.

What pump setup did you settle on?

I am having trouble with my setup, and I've done a traditional Lift Pump-to-Surge Tank-to-EFI Pump. My issue is too much pressure at the rail, and no fuel returning to surge tank.

Post up how it goes!

Thanks man. So are you doing the 22r with a 20r head? I have no clearance issues with the efi intake but its not got a ton of room in between. You can always do side drafts and be a badass :twisted: . I had to clearance the back of the oil pan to clear the steerings center link but that was handled with a plastic headed hammer. I did have to heat the crossmember in one spot and knock it down with a hammer to get my desired clearance under the oil pan(which is about 1/4 - 1/2 inch). After that, I placed pieces of wood between the oil pan edges and the crossmember to hold the engine block while I tacked in my mounts. The engine was partially torn apart at that point so as to gain access to everything.

I just drove from Star, NC to the Import/Kit nationals in Carlisle, PA with absolutely no issues! I ended up re routing my fuel lines to keep the single inline pump from having to lift as much. Im using the Aeromotive 11109 inline efi pump. The pump is located below the fuel tank so it creates a siphon. The pump would probably benefit from a surge tank and lift pump addition but the current setup works great at the moment(My cheap summit pump didnt die. The ground wire came loose and I didnt check it before buying another like a dumby :oops: ).

It sounds like your fuel pressure regulator isnt hooked up correctly. Make sure you have fuel feeding directly to the rail and the regulator on the return side of the rail. I assume you have an adjustable one with a gauge? If not, definitely purchase one. It makes life much easier. If you have some pictures of how its hooked up, PM them to me or tell me where they are on your thread and Ill try and help.

Few pics from Carlisle Import/Kit Nationals. Parked with the Volvo guys since the JNC crowd is usually pretty weak. Gray 242 is my friends. Figured Id include them since my car makes a tiny appearance in them.

I was wondering if these were legit and fit right, because my windshield seal is pretty shot on my mark ii wagon. There are places where there is just caulking and not even any rubber left! and the rubber that is left is BONE dry.
Good to know that those seals work!

Hey thanks for the reply. Turned out to be a stuck FPR. Simple fix!

I have also been thinking about ditching the surge tank setup only because of how loud the lift pump is. Have you driven much on only the inline pump? Are there many hills where you live?

I had been driving with only a cheap summit inline for several months with no issue before i switched to the aeromotive. As long as it has a gravity feed or can create a siphon like mine is doing you should have no issues.

Speaking of hills, Virginia and West Virginia are fairly mountainous and i had no problems en route to Carlisle. Just keep it above a quarter tank to be safe. The pump never got hot either because i checked.

Awesome thanks for the info. Maybe I'll just scrap the surge tank setup
