Off to get an exhaust installed

 

You trailered it and didn't take the opportunity to rip it around the neighborhood with open headers?  :-)

Damn this build is sick. Definitely motivating me to get back at it with mine. Are you throwing a roof top tent on that bed platform?

Very nice. Where you going to wheel that? I know there's no place around here with trails wide enough to keep from scratching it up. I am guessing you are still in Frisco.

Decided to go push button start. Got the Digital Guard Dog system. Looks pretty neat. Thinking of mounting the button on the column where the key is and removing the rod and column lock.

Looking good!

 

Surprised at how expensive the keyless ignition system is.

I was too, but they have a pretty sophisticated transmitter and looks well made. The guys doing my exhaust swear by them.

Exhaust is done. Now to getting the engine running even remotely right.

Trying to get HP Tuners to connect to my PCM. Managed to get it to connect once now nothing. Pretty disappointing considering how much it costs. They could learn a lesson from Cobb Tuning. In my Subaru days they were rock solid. Got a ticket into support. I am sure they will blame me, my PC or the PCM. My Innova scanner connects fine. It just doesn't have much live data. Maybe I need to try EFI live....

I had to get things just right to get my HO Tuners to connect. It's not that intuitive, I found. Once it connected once, though, it connected consistently after that for me.

Hopefully that will be the case.

Looks great, wondering why you put the catalytic converter on? Just know you don't need it in Texas on one this old. 

The original had one, so I thought I would be a good citizen. Also if I ever moved to another state I might need one so I thought I might as well,

I am pretty sure there is a Federal law that says you can't eliminate it, if it came from the factory with one.

Catalytic Converter Laws in Texas

BY HERB KIRCHHOFF

 

The catalytic converter in motor vehicles is an anti-pollution device that chemically converts toxic byproducts of fuel combustion into gases that occur naturally. Some drivers believe that removing the converter will improve performance while others may seek to replace the converter with a section of ordinary exhaust pipe to avoid the cost of replacing a failed converter. Such actions are against Texas state law, and violators face up to a $25,000 fine.

 

 

Tampering Illegal

It is illegal in Texas to tamper with properly functioning catalytic converters and other pollution control equipment, says the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality website. Tampering means removing, disabling or otherwise rendering inoperable the pollution control devices installed on a motor vehicle.

 

Use or Sale Banned

Texas law forbids you to drive a motor vehicle with missing or inoperable pollution control systems. This applies regardless of whether the vehicle is being driven on- or off-road. It is also illegal in Texas to sell, lease or offer a motor vehicle that doesn't have all pollution control systems in proper working order.

Repair Rules

Chapter 114 of the Texas Clean Air Act requires that a missing or failed catalytic converter or other failed pollution control device must be replaced with one specified for that vehicle and which has been certified by the federal Environmental Protection Agency. The repairs must meet the emissions standards established for that vehicle. It is also illegal to add equipment, such as a turbocharger, that wasn't originally certified by the manufacturer for that make and model.

Exemptions

Texas law exempts vehicles and engines used exclusively for auto racing, research and development, or vocational instruction. It also exempts farm vehicles made before 2000, and vehicles or engines being exported from the United States.
