Nice stuff. Was hoping you'd still have those arms for when I get my tax back. Oh well.

I've been busy - Still not finished though!

Image
240mm plastic hose - Using a stepless Oetiker clamp to secure it to be 100% sure.

Image
Heavy duty bulkhead terminals - Wired to the pump and to the factory wiring, so I could drive it before I had the whole re-wire finished.

Image
Terminals on the top with 10awg wiring

Image
10awg goes along the factory path back to the FPCM in the rear.

Image
6mm2 dual wire from Super cheap - run from the battery through the firewall (not pictured - 30A fuse on the wire in the engine bay)

Image
Through the drivers sill

Image
Passenger sill

Image
And into the rear, so we now have new power, and new fuel pump wiring terminating in the same place.

Image
A bunch of work later, and we have new power running to the FPCM, triggered off a relay from the old power, and the new fuel pump wiring working.

I've also set it up using XT60 plugs (usually for RC cars, but they are high power connectors) so that I could bypass the FPCM if I want to.

Image
All buttoned down.

Image

Pulled out the injectors, they were really dirty on the passenger side, but I had them tested, and there was no flow issues, so wash them over and put them back with new O rings - new fuel rails should arrive shortly.

Image
Also found this, was rubbing on the intake - Already have a replacement and will fix the rubbing.

Image
Also finally got around to finishing a project I've had sitting on the bench for years - hard wiring the dashcam.

I also ordered new speakers for F+R, and I'll be putting in the door sound deadening over the next week.

So good!
Did you refer to, or differ from, the FPCM wiring upgrade thread on LGT?

https://legacygt.com/forums/showthread. ... 13570.html
And:

The option to completely bypass the FPCM, if required, is a great idea. :good:

A good tip re: reinstalling injectors is to push the pintles in with a round hard plastic nib or spudger, prior to reinstallation, to prevent the dreaded stuck injector issue...

Yes, I used that as a starting point, but obviously there's some variation on how I did it, in terms of using new terminals for the pump, and I ran earth from the engine bay (mostly because the wire was already in a pair) etc.

Awesome, so the oe pump top plug/loom is only being used for the fuel level sender?

You replaced the fuel proof hose that kinked with the oe hose and oetiker clamps?

Yes, that's right.

Yeah I did - it's not an OE hose (though it's very similar and may be 'the same'), it's a 10x240mm raceworks hose. the stepless clamps are extra insurance, especially with the high flow/pressure.

Love it.
Oetiker stepless are so good.
I have the stepless screw clamps on my avo tb hose and they easily hold the tmic in place before installing the bracket n hot side bolts :)
Thanks for all the details I missed on FB.
