I'm Loving the lack of fans in that last shot. Great job Lucas, im glad it has all worked out for you so far. It looks great man.
what to start by saying your bay looks amazing. i just started cleaning my engine bay. im just a little stumped on two parts the evap hoses and the sencer on the passenger side and coolant hose. maybe take pics or something. i just want to do it the right way. thanks
Heres more pictures.
Ok cool so deff need to get it tuned out lol and yea if you could get the diagram about the coolant just to make sure I'm doing it right lol. And the evap censor did you just cut it off or did you tie the two wires together like the coolant censor. Thanks for your help.
A thing of beauty

Thanks a ton everyone for all the well been in shave bay mood lately. Hell I always am But anyways got tons of plans for this winter, mostly focusing on perfecting the bay, rewiring/sleeving the wiring, and more low. Oh and a whole lot of interior love. So lets dive in.
Last few day's ive been slowly chipping away at some stuff here and there.
Started with the wiring around the Aux Waterpump and coil pack area. Originally the wiring was all crammed in there, noticeable and not quite right. So heres the plan.
Route the wires coilpack and the Cam position sensor up the front of the coilpack (backwards in picture)
Run the Throttle bottle plug and the Tranny plug over the motor. Along with the vacuum hose for the fuel rail. This will connect to the vacuum hose coming off the rear of your intake manifold. The intake manifold will hide these once everythings back together.
Now ive read page upon page about getting rid of the auxillary waterpump. Honestly ive had nothing but wiring/mechanical problems with my aux waterpump. For most of this season I just had it ran to a switch that I turned on everytime I started the car. But I talked to Ryan Mansa some of you might know him from IG as 1lowcoupe. He hasnt ran a aux waterpump in 5 years and no problems. My understanding of it is to keep coolant flowing after the car is off to help eliminate hot spots in the head. But if no negative side effects have occured to ryan Ill give it a try. The waterpump is akward to mount, wires look ugly and the coolant hoses are ever worst.
mhm with it out *also deleted bracket in picture*
I found this...no wonder my car was running like sh*t..Replaced that tonight
took the rest of the front clip off and fenders..only drained about a gallon and a quarter out of my system.... now wonder it got hot so fast
