Wired TPS this weekend and tuned Mega Squirt for true TPS and did a small test drive and it drove well. Still need to modify the hood to fit the air cleaners and take it to the dyno for some real tuning.

added air cleaners and new fuel presure regulator to ITB setup. Also so added wideband O2 sensor to MegaSquirt setup. Did a test drive and found the mix was way to rich most of the time. Still drives well mostly

Man is that a nice set up. The best of both worlds. The looks of webers and real EFI.

Are those the correct hose clamps to use with fuel injection? I'd heard that you don't want to use the gear-type, but this type instead:

That setup looks really nice, William. Congrats on getting it tuned.

I'm going to be Megasquirting the 20v 4AGE that I just picked up this weekend. I'm sure that I'll be seeking some MS advice somewhere along the way; it's no BP engine but I reserve the right to pick your brain :)

Hey, nice car. I'll have mine here in HOUSTON soon, I think. Hope to meet up sometime. My spread sheet totaled out at just about $13,000 too. Or at least it will by the time I paint and finish with upholstery.

cleaned up the O2 sensor wiring, did some more EFI tuning and replaced the timing belt and front seal last weekend.

Put some shaved RA1s on it a few weekends ago and took it to TWS -- times where very bad 2:09s and 2:10s it was hot but still the motor was very tired 103 in to turn 1. I guess I will have to rebuild the engine.
