Thanks J. You've helped me so much along the way on  this build. I was completely lost on a lot of the wiring and brackets assembly . BIG THANKS TO YOU MY FRIEND!!!
 NOW... to clean all the spaghetti up, put things in their resting spot permanently and get this sucker road worthy and tuned.

It wasn't ready to "start".. but uhhh....I had to hear it..lmao
 I went over everything a 100 times on the harness BEFORE  I depinned  any wires.. I must have took out, what, 60 wires or so? Rear o2's, all the automatic transmission stuff.  I dint want any ..." now wth is wrong" questions.. it worked out thank God and fired on the first lick..
OD is flashing.. Im sure thats because I took out the automatic stuff.. still have to get a  start up tune and all that stuff deleted out of the computer

Talked to Bob on the phone yesterday.  I bought the entire 3rd tube on the driver side header  versus trying to patch it up..so all  is on hold until that gets here. Then get the header repaired all the way from the flange to the collector.
 I noticed the driver side valve cover is leaking oil..sooooo...off comes the upper intake  to get the valve cover off  to see whats up with that.

well done, I was gonna ask what you want for that "bad set" and then bend up a small tube and fix that SOB
Glad you are able to use it!
hoping oil leak is easy fix
Yes flashing OD light is due to no speed sensors or solenoids in the MIA auto trans

Well J...lol
 I cut the  tube off with a sawzall.. then used a diegrinder  to cut the welds off as close as possible. Then took a steel chisel and hammer to knock the  welds down inside the flange  where it was welded . Came out fairly easy. Then cleaned it up with a file. I cant weld..  but I know a local welder who can tig it up perfect once the tube gets here.

you could wrap them??
I have thought about that a time or two, some of the new exhaust wraps on the market are pretty sweet, volvanic rock instead of fiberglass....oooh la la
Wrapping the exhaust forces the heat to move downstream.....away from under the hood and away from the transmission

TMH may not be the easiest to wrap but it can be done

Definitely wrap the 2nd and 3rd primary on the driver side and the tube that is by the ac box on the passenger side for sure since I'm not ceramic coating them

LMAO!!!🤣🤣🤣  Wasn't me..it was already in the house..🤣🤣🤣🤣
 Ya know.. shoe repair man's kids go barefooted..flooring dude has terrible floors..hahahaaaa

What I had figured.. was, when it snows..I can just slide all over the place with these?? Yeah??  Ok.. lets get it..☕

 Times has definitely changed bro.. not like 30 years ago. Wait, did I just tell on myself!? Basically I'm at a standstill until the header pipe gets here..  I  have been sitting in the driver seat practicing shifting!😎👊
