      Getting a box from Waytek is just as exciting as getting a box from Summit Racing...

      I got a bunch of terminals, cable seals, relays, and a few other goodies.





      First up is this die set for my Waytek branded crimping tool. This die works on Weatherpack and Metripack (and GT) terminals up to 10 gauge. It crimps the wire and the cable seal in one operation. Can't wait to try it out!





      Next up are a couple of my favorite Bussmann panels. These are the dual bus variety. I plan to use one under the dash and add another one in the engine bay for headlights.





      Lastly are these heat shrink bulkhead passthroughs made by TE Connectivity. I plan to use the large one for the ECU harness and the smaller ones for anything else that needs to come through the firewall.





      The large one is made for a 2" hole and the smaller ones are for .75" hole.

      I like those bulkhead connections. I will need to come back and clean up my bay when done.

      I never have either. I ran across them in the Waytek catalog.

      The big one seems a little bulky, but I am trim it up a little and I think it will work great.

      Andrew, are you wiring the entire car from scratch, or are those supplies just for the engine harness?

      Just for engine harness. The chassis wiring is in great shape.

      Gotcha. I'm starting to look at wiring options for my Corvette....wish someone made a Smartwire style PDM that was a little more street car focused. I love the open architecture of the set up but dont know how well it would work for things like brake lights, turn signals, interior lights, radio, etc.

      My refurbished Microsoft Surface tablet should be here this week, so I'll shoot you an email when it arrives to discussing getting on your schedule to take a look at the tune on my Suburban.

      Sounds like a plan. I have been whispering in Holley's ear about doing a PDM for years.

      Yea, its crazy to me that nobody offers one yet....with all the options from Painless, Advanced, Ron Francis, etc that are all pretty much the same, you'd think someone would be leading the charge on a solid state PDM for street cars and hot rods.

      Today was a nice day, so I rolled the GTO out into the driveway and decided to tackle stropping down the rest of the engine. Made a quick trip to the parts store to rent a power steering pulley puller and a balancer puller.



      Got the PS pulley off without any issues, which allowed me to take the alternator bracket off.



      My 20v Dewalt 1/2" impact gun made quick work of the balancer bolt and I managed to get the balancer off without any drama, although I apparently didn't get any pictures of that.



      Next it was time to tackle the stuck engine mount adapter plate bolts. I went to my local big box home improvement store and got a torch. Sadly, this did absolutely nothing. There was just too much metal to heat up and the block being aluminum dissipated the heat very quickly.



      It was time to get serious. I got my angle grinder out and installed a fresh cutoff disk and went to work. The plan was to slot the head of the bolts and also cut through the engine mount adapter plates. Once the cut was made, I used a chisel to split the engine mount plates to relieve the pressure against underside of the bolts. I was still able to use the 6mm allen wrench.



      This worked like a charm. Rinse and repeat 7 more times.



      I managed to mostly stay clear of the block, with only a couple of little nicks, but this won't be a problem.



      All the bolts had plenty of anti-seize on them, which I liberally applied 12 years ago to avoid just this scenario.



      Good riddance!

      I tried not my little Dewalt impact and hand tools. First one I broke was by hand. It's only a 6mm allen, so it can't take a lot.

      Nicely done. I wonder if the heat from the cut off wheel helped break them free as well. Hope you didn't leave anything outside overnight!!

      I want to think a larger torch with either wax or a pentrating oil and some time to let it cool to allow thermal upset to take place those bolt would have come out, hindsight lol

      Maybe...but I didn't have any other torch besides the map gas torch that I bought, thinking it would be enough. I am not using those plates again, so they are already in the garbage pile.

      Yes. The hose clears the pulley by about .100"

      Thanks! I was curious if there was another one on the market but I'll pick up the earls unit. Good to know about clearance!
