    Weight wise, with just little detail stuff, basically freeloading weight I ended up finding 23.4# ... still gained weight over the roll cage, but getting some back ....

    Iím going to tear into the electrical system under hood for the battery disconnect and such next, but the parts are starting to show up for the next shor at a little weight savings ... tear out stock tank and move to a fuel cell.

    6 gallon cell. Itís a 4 banger, gets good milage if Iím not in full boost

    I usually start True Street with 5 gallons for the 30 mile cruise and three passes and have fuel left. My silly fault, but I use a little under 1/2 gallon a pass, but want to keep adding fuel because I never really knew what was in the rank. Always ended up with a full tank before it showed much on gauge. This also has a linear 0-90 ohm sender so Iíll have a reasonable accurate gauge too.

    im really happy with this set up so far. Return line to the bottom, deep sump for pump to sit in, billet pump hanger. Now if I could actually get the aHellcat 540 pump anywhere I would be set. Likely going to start with my 450 pump until they get back in stock.

    NHRA rules say you have to have a disconnect quicker than 9.99 wether you move the battery or not. I always intend to keep my battery under the hood, so picked up this Moroso shutdown relay.

    alternator feeds through fuse to battery side of the buss. Thatís connected to relay so when I kill that, it kills battery and shuts the car down as itís supposed to do.

    happy with the set up

    im getting to the end of what I really needed to do as far as the safety upgrade. Finished most of it up tonight.

    im going to tear into the engine next. Fresh valvesprings and we are going to go through the head and get a look at the valve job and guides and such. See if I can’t find a few ponies

    My fuel filler door is now useless, and since the fuel cell came with a sender, I made a plate and installed a fuel gauge in there. Saves me from opening the hatch, and the cover, and the cell to check fuel level, lol ...
