Figured I would make a thread for pics and progress of my fuel & Paxton SC project. Thanks to my friends at ART for helping out with information, advice and direction.

Thanks Jason!




A few more updated pics... Been working on "test fitting" the intercooler pipes and removing the stock vacuum lines and emissions canister (front drivers side bumper area). I also like to take care of small things, like fixing damaged fins on the A/C Condensor and oil cooler. Seems small and like it may be a waist of time, but it will help maximize the air flow, especially with the large front mount that will be in front of everything when it's mounted. Taking my time to fix little things like this is kind of fun and will pay off in the end, knowing everything is done right.

A few updade pics. This week been working on mounting the twin oil breather catch cans and some Injector caps / spacers fitment. Andrew and the guys from "T1 Race Development" where I bought the Injector Dynamics Injectors from, came through helping me out, and sent me some other caps because I couldn't get my blue spacers to "slip in" for some reason. The other ones they sent me to try (pink or purple top caps with filters) would not work. I almost made them work, but the blues were the proper ones with the larger "inner diameter" hole for the injector spray "fan out". I have heard of folks using the pink or purple colored caps, but the blues can work with a little milling. Easy to do! Also, thanks to Chris Pharr at ART for the twin Walbro 255 Fuel Pump mounting!

Catch Cans on fender wells.













See where we romoved just a little off the end, not much is needed.




My buddy Mark was using steady hands to mill these for me. Really, you can have flaws in the milling, as long as the rubber O-Ring still seals properly.



A socket with some tape around it to hold it in place (in the inside of the cap) and a Sharpie Marker on the other end, allows to spin evenly on the drimmel, keeping it even.




Thanks to Chris Pharr at ART, for setting me up with twin Walbro 255 pumps and proper distribution out of the tank.

Is that a -8 or a -10 on top of the fuel pump assembly?

It's a -10. I'll run -10 from the tank, to the filter, which is also a -10, then split off the other side of the filter with a "Y" that steps down to an -8 to run to each rail.

Thanks Burt. I usually try to take detailed pics and write detailed info on projects like this that I take on, so others can find information when searching the web and Viper Alley. There's not alot out there for "Do It Yourselfers" so I hope this will help others down the road.

Looks great so far, didn't your car have an 01 motor that you found out after the fact it replaced the stock 98 it came with? If this is the right car I'm thinking of then I take it you're using the stock pulley it comes with to keep the engine lasting longer in boost.

Yes, you are correct. I recently talked to Arrow Racing, the folks that actually make Viper engines, and they confirmed it it an 01' engine and I only have about 7,000 miles on it. I will go with lower boost because it is a creampuff. This isn't a "crazy" build but I am building it so it will have easier potential if I were to go that route in the future.
