Gotta know....what are the 20+ foot cables for?
Battery relocation. I can take some pictures later of how it is so far. Didn't have enough room in the engine bay for 1 battery much less 2, so I am forced to go this route.

That's a lot of wire! Like the professional look of it.

Is that welding cable? If so, I can't recommend enough to shrink wrap it with marine grade shrink wrap. Welding cable isn't oil resistant and will swell and the cover will deteriorate when oil and fuel get on it.

It might be the same as welding cable, all I know is that it was recommended for use as battery cables, especially over the distance I would be covering. Thanks for the heads up though.

Got it cranking today. Here is some video proof for yall. Very close to getting it running, I am pretty sure I will need to tune it to get it there, or at least running half decently, and that stuff is very expensive for me, so it might be a minute. I am still hunting after a few misc parts, like the 2 brake lines from the ABS module to the master cylinder. I can still run it without stuff like that, but that tune will take a while for me to allocate money for, so im hoping to wrap up stuff like that in the meantime. Getting it road ready will be another section entirely, but that is for later. For now, I am sitting back, enjoying this small (major) victory in my constant wrestling match with this thing...

You might not be all the way there yet, but this is a major step forward!

Where did you get that wrap for the turbo? And what brand alternator is that? I'm assuming it's an HO unit?

It's a PTP Turbo Blanket iirc. The alternator is a DC Power 270 amp alt. Has a built in clutch and all sorts of things. Super cool unit.
