      The video of that car ripping through that parking lot was a real game changer for me.

      pistons are done, try to see if you can find someone that weld that piece that broke off the block back in and machine it to what it was.

      what standalone ?

      1200 will be a bargain once you see how much a good tuner will hit you for a stand alone tune.

      F stand alone.

      Stand alone was for upgrading primitive early fuel injection or carbs.

      Me7 is capable of anything you need to make this engine run right (and run better than standalone)

      ok, here is a new update,
      engine is fully assembled already, (new seals, chains, blah blah)
      got a new wiring harness since the original was chopped for the standalone,
      install new stage 4 clutch
      i still dont have a software i just using a uni software of my brother in law car
      but here is what stops me to start the car,

      CANT MAKE THE FUEL PUMP TO RUN, ( BRAND NEW) ALL FUSES, RELAYS ARE NEW, BUT HERE IS THE PROBLEM THAT I FOUND, i have a big surprise when i remove the rear seat and found a surge tank, with no pump but with 3 big connector for an individuals pump hiding, underneat the trunk, i can not remember the brand at this momment but i will post pics later this weekend, and then this three pumps run in to a single line to a cannister, and then to the fuel lines, to my aeromotive fpr,

      i only have the oe fuel pump, of the driver side but nothing except the surge tank in the pass side, i just cant find the way they connected... grrrrrr

      I wonder if this is one of tricks EIP used to making big power. A surge tank full of some race fuel or juiced up in some way to supply really high octane fuel to the engine while it was on the dyno. EIP made some good hardwear, but their tunes were crude and tended to run lean. Definitely get a new tune after your finished building it up. Jeff Attwood would be a good choice.

      check the car for a fuel pump shut off switch as well. A lot of drag cars have them installed.
