Worked on the fuel return line tonight. First shot is under the rear hatch carpet, top of the fuel level sending unit where the return line goes in and the tank vent line comes out.

Attached a string to the old return hose before I pulled it out.



Made the new hose.



Attached the string to the new hose and pulled it through.



Attached to the top of the fuel tank.



Shot under the car by the tank. The Corvette filter/regulator is being held by the original stock fuel filter bracket. I've got the delivery line to engine bay and the return line to the tank connected. Just need to do the line from the pump to the filter/regulator.

Finished up the hydroboost lines. I also drilled the manual headlight bracket on the driver side to give a lazy eye setting to get some air to the area where the air intake and hydroboost cooler sit.

Finished up the wiring. That's it for the install on the top side, except for installing the strut bar, hood and header panel obviously.

Next up is exhaust. Nothing too elegant planned there, I've got a Y pipe in hand and I'm waiting on a few other pieces to make the connection from the headers to the existing Lindsey Racing 3 inch single system. This will be the "get it running" setup, it only has a Pypes M-80 muffler which doesn't muffle much. It was fine on the stock turbo engine since the turbo did much of the muffling.

Pretty much Matt, got the fluids sitting in the garage to fill with, and Brock helped me out with some welding on the Y pipe, I just need to sort a flex pipe and have him weld some connectors on that and I'll install the full exhaust and try to start it. My guess is the starting won't go smoothly, so there will still be troubleshooting to do.
