I just finished wiring my Roush boost guage. I used a "add a circuit" which I connected to fuse #35 in the passenger side fuse box underneath the dash against the side of the footwell. Fuse 35 is the auxillary body panel circuit which is only hot when the key is on and/or the engine is running. Most other circuits are hot all the time so you can't use them. I hooked up both red and blue so it stays blue all the time. White wire is not connected to anything.
Good stuff, man. I checked out your flickr page. Nice! I'm a little surprised about the dyno sheet, though.
You definitely have a clean ride, my man.
Thanks bud! Yeah, I was hoping for a few more poines too but I probably need some exhaust modifications to bump it up a bit more. Not sure that's going to happen any time soon. :-) It's a fun drive now and I'll probably leave it at that.
I've had my ProCharger setup on my 4.0 for about 4 months now which required me to move the catch can to the drivers side. And during the summer it was collecting a few drops of oil each week. Now that the weather has become colder it started to collect about a teaspoon of water each week. And the last few weeks I was opening the drain **** but nothing was coming out. I decided to unscrew the can to see if anything was there, and to my amazement it was loaded with yellowish slime and the drain **** was completely plugged. I guess this is a reminder to all of you to make sure to take apart your can to ensure nothing bad is collecting. I'll be doing this every week going forward and not relying on the drain ****.
I'm also concerned about what exactly this tells me about my motor. Does anyone know if this means I have engine issues? She seems to run fine. Oil is good and clean and antifreeze is full.
Well I knew I was collecting some water but didn't realize it was also turning into a foamy gunk and clogging the drain. Luckily I caught it on the weekend so my wife doesn't break down along the road. :-) What concerns me is that the weather hasn't really been that cold, so it may get worse. I may have to show Noreen how to clean the catch can. LOL That's not going to happen. I don't really want to take it off for the winter but I think I'll remove the screen for now. It was completely caked with that stuff.
I think that mess was about 4 weeks worth of driving.
This was a great thread. I've finally gotten the time and the confidence to attempt this myself over my winter break. After sitting in my garage for nearly 2+ years I've finally gathered the testicular fortitude to install my ProCharger Kit. So far I've done brakes, audio equipment installations and switched out my entire exhaust system, but installing F/I will be my biggest project to date. I've already taken off two weeks from work for my holiday vacation and I figured that would allot me plenty of time to get this done during the night while the wife and kiddies are asleep. I know it won't take two weeks, but I'm going to go slow and make sure I have everything covered and can spend some time during that two weeks breaking it in!!
My main reason for writing this post is to get any last minute tips and tricks from the gurus you and any of the other gurus here. I want to make sure I have all the tools and various nick knacks so no surprises creep up during my install. I purchased the all inclusive Stage II kit that included the air cooler and tuner. I already had an SCT tuner so I will be taking my car back to stock very shortly. After I get this done and my 'mod *****' grow I'm thinking I'll tackle getting my 8.8" rear on an installing some gauges. Is a Diablo MAFia a recommended purchase prior to installing this kit, or is it something I can just add in later when I do my gauges? Is the catch can a must during the initial install? I was planning on getting two of the Terminator/Aeroforce Scan Gauges so I didn't think the MAFia was needed. Everything I need to at least have my kit installed and running properly should be in this kit. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
