Nice Jeep, I saw it this weekend at silver lake. My brother, ddeadserious' campsite was 2 down from you and I was across the campground in the black ZJ and yellow TJ.

That thing sounds awesome BTW.

The seats are mounted close to where they would go stock. I pushed my seat as far back to where I am comfortable. I'm 6'4" so I hate being squished. I can still sit behind the driver seat if I wish. I have the pass. seat moved upwards a bit to make more room behind them. I have no sliders.

I saw you guys out there at silver lake and I do remember seeing you at the campgrounds. I need to get a gl4x4 sticker. Thanks for the compliments on the jeep...it has came a long way. I am going to be running to the store to pick up some exhaust parts in the next few mins. The DNR wasn't going to let me in as my jeep is at 100db where state law is 94dp. They took 6 readings with the same results. He said its probably just resonating off the wheel well causing it to be a higher reading as its dumped rite off the skid.

Its fun to have everyone wonder over but at times.

Again thanks for the compliments!

Another update:

I have been running a TBI off a 350 for a few years with a Megasquirt computer. While it was far superior over a carb. I still had some issues. I could never seem to get it to idle nice and I wanted more response and more power. When I pulled the engine to do head work on the 360 I figured I would purchase an EFI intake from Edelbrock along with their fuel rails. I did not have time to fully finish the EFI swap so instead I plugged the 8 injector holes on the intake, and put the TBI back on. It works really well for the year I used it.

I just got done hooking everything up correctly and re-wiring the computer and making it look nice. Tired of looking at the ghetto wiring. Anways, enough with the talking, here are some pics.

Using a Stock 5.0 throttle body



Powder coated the fuel rails








Finished for now. Had to head back to school



Still need to tune the fuel maps and the Air Fuel ratio targets. Other than that It will start and idle and drive, just runs very very lean. When I get more time to work on it I will wire loom the wires and take care of the electric fan wires. I'm wanting to wire it into the computer so I can just program the temps I want it to kick on and off at.
