Got the latest ENV-171 (oil filter housing) from Improved Racing. What a damn nice piece this is, and the ENV-170 I had from them was already damn nice. This one has a much beefier mounting bracket which even includes a nut plate to really sandwhich it to a frame rail (or really any piece of metal that you want the ultimate support for.
Fishing the nut plate through the frame rail and into its final position took me a long time, won't sugarcoat that. But I got it and damn is it strong. With the earlier version of this already mounted to the car, it was somewhat sturdy but I had my doubts (three self-tappers into the frame rail in somewhat of a triangle orientation (and in single shear)). Now, if you try to move the filter housing, even with all your strength, you just move the entire car! How it should be!
Improved Racing, like I said recently, makes nothing but the highest of high-quality stuff.
Got my oil pressure sender adapter (Autometer 2242) on the engine output so I can have a truly accurate reading on a stock gauge, and the 212* temp switch on the line returning from the cooler which will activate the oil cooler fan in the event the slipstream through its fins isn't enough to cool down the oil, or when sitting still on a hot day and/or running the snot outta the motor.
Finally got a day off and some hobby time in the shop. Sent the Bullitt for appt. 2 of 2 to complete the 3m on the bumper and lights. Part Hood, vents, fenders and mirrors completed last week. Car only had 950 miles on it so getting that done soonest before i get any chips was important. So in the SN95 world i was able to install my new FR500 steering wheel. Since the GTS has no cruise i had to cut off both lower tabs for that to be able to transfer over the plastic back housing. Stock wheel had those tabs snapped off at the factory looks Good. Hope to carry on with my kilzmatt this weekend. So far 3 hours into it and maybe 25% done. Danny
