Looking back through the part 3 thread to remind myself where I was exactly I see talk that I ordered a new fuel pump but don't see where I installed it......so it must still be in a box somewhere. Need to find that.

The 1 header appears to be leaking and no idea what the black goo is all about

Well, I thought I was going to pull the engine this weekend. Nope.

Lana- wher are you going?
Me- to fix the car
Lana- Oh no Honey. That project needs to last you the rest of your life, better to work on some thing that needs to be finished.

LMAO!!! My wife's greatest fear is I'm going to croak and leave her with 20 crates of Ferrari parts and a 550 Maranello chassis up on jackstands.

While I'm delayed yet again with construction I'm pondering heat.....it might be time to get the exhaust coated or maybe wrapped now that everything seems to fit and work. I have to believe the engine bay will be pretty frikin hot i do nothing

That's Lana's way of being funny while she tells me the pool power room that she didn't even want and thinks is WAY too small is still WAY more important to her than my car running. And with the sincerity she delivered it with it was pretty funny....and I am now working on the power room so it was also effective.

Now that the engine has been in and test run and everything seems to fit and work there is finishing up stuff to get on with. This is way I started the part4 threat....this is very different work.

The big one is heat management. The factory V8 headers and pipes were insulated. That was all beat up when I got the car so I replaced it with 2 layers of header wrap then painted with high temp silver to make it look at least decent and you could touch the pipes after a drive! That stuff works good so I'm kind of leaning toward doing that to the new V12 exhaust. I really REALLY want to believe that having everything ceramic coated would be just as good since it looks so much nicer....maybe do the coating and see???....but I know the wrap works and since everything is 304SS it really can't cause corrosion like it does on mild steel headers. I'll need to thing about that while I have everything apart....but the ceramic coating looks a lot better......



The other thing I go round and round on is an oil cooler. The V8 had one and needed it....needed it at least until I upgraded the radiator then I'm not so sure since oil temps were way lower after that....but I still had it so I don't know....in fact I more than don't kow because the oil cooler was in the way doing the supercharger add so I switched to a water/oil type that I ran the engine coolant though so its a complete apples to oranges thing I guess. The one I used last time was like the pic below...I just put it in the hot water to the radiator aluminum tube thinking the oil wants to be warmer than the engine temp and the hot line means no need to add an oil thermostat, not sure that was a great idea but it seemed to work out ...but I could probably make something WAY cheaper. I need to think about that.
