Does this look familiar? Hehe. Can you run me through the basic installation of this kit? I've been reading the instructions and I'll be reading them all week, but I would like some real world advice on the job. Thanks man.

Sorry dude. I just got back from boarding. But ya, you got the sportsman fogger eh??? It's not hard man. If you've done a regular dry kit before, it's basically the same wiring, so that's easy. That'll take like 10 minutes or more depending on how good you want it hidden and shiet.

The only real hard part was bending the lines on the manifold to make the throttle cable/sensors/vacuum lines fit in and around. It was hard for me because I got the Pro Fogger and it came with ss lines. So they were hard as shiet to bend. I think the sportsman fogger came with copper ones?? If so, then it should be fairly easy.

Tapping the manifold was easy too. Just get like a dremel to start a small hole first. Then once it's a little bigger, use the tap that came with the kit and drill the rest to make the threads in the holes. Don't forget to clean out that manny too!!!!:D ;) :p

Other than that shit man, it should be pretty easy and straightforward as long as you've done an install before. If you can, try to get a spare manny and try to tap/install the lines and shiet on that before you start the actual install. Trust me, it'll save you time dude.;)

Thanks. Do you have any pics of your TPS microswitch and where you mounted the solenoids?
Nope. I would take a pic but my friend borrowed my digicam for the week. But I dont think you wanna see it anyways. It's still in its "testing phase:eek: ". I just ghetto rigged my switch onto one of the clamps of my intake tubing and had it right where my throttle will hit at WOT.

As far as where my solenoids are, our kits are different. I have different distribution blocks as you. So basically my solenoids are leaning right on top of the plenum of my intake manny. They are basically supported up by the SS lines.

Here's a pic of my solenoids on the manny.

How long did it take you from start to finish? I'm going to have to pull the intake manifold on Saturday and reinstall it the same day, so I need to have a time frame. I'm supposed to go racing that night.

Shiet, start to finish??? If I had to put it in a specific time frame, maybe a good hard 7-8 hours. It was probably even longer than that. I'm only saying that because my install took a matter of weeks, because I took my time installing things, and also because I had to have some guy bend my lines for me after I fucked it up the first time. I did like one thing every week, ya know??

I'm telling ya man, if you can find some spare manifold to tap into and have your lines/solenoids installed on that, and also just go ahead and run your nitrous line and wires, then it'll save you a shit of time. All you gotta do then is remove your stock manny and install the tapped one. If you don't then there's no telling how long it's gonna take you.

I can't afford another manifold. I still need an ignition and JNMM. I'll just have to bust my ass on Saturday then. I have to get the plumbing done at least. I can always wire it up over spring break when I put the ignition on.
