spent 90 minutes last evening washing my giant Ram in order to wax it but I ended up taking to long washing it that I was too tired and it was too dark out to wax it

Replacing my water pump. USPS was supposed to deliver my fan clutch today, but I guess it'll get here Monday. Priority 2 day shipping, my ass.

Edit: Ok, I guess they came back and delivered it. Weird because they delivered the mail early, then came back with a package.

Bung for Wideband welded to driver side down-pipe right after cat,
(ideally it should be pre-cat, but would have required exhaust removal and re-install)

Since I'm just using it for monitoring, not tuning, this will suffice for now...



Triple Pod Gauges finally plugged in and mounted, (Fuel Pressure, Boost and Wideband)
but now there's a crap load of wires to route through the firewall...






Some connector ends could be disassembled, thanks to my bud having the right tool
But others had to be cut and re-soldered after feeding them through...PITA!

I took pic's of the connector ends that were too large to feed through my firewall holes that were drilled for two small grommets.



I used color coded tape on the wire bundles so I would know which gauge they came from
since the boost and fuel pressure had the same colored wires.

power, ground and illumination... check, that was the only easy part I love Red, Black and White LOL!!





Map sensor for Boost gauge mounted to a custom made bracket (Thanks' Brad!)
bolted to the bracket that once held the engine cover prong beside the oil spout.

Upper left is the T fitting to the vacuum line, that leads to the boost gauge MAP sensor
I guess I could have taken a pic before install, all sensor connections are under and to the side.



Wideband connector plugged in and functional too,
But still have yet to find a good place to tap the fuel line for the fuel pressure sensor.

There's still a bunch of extra loose wires for other alternate gauge Pro-Control functions,
Those can wait for now after farting around all afternoon I called it a day.


Just playing with the gauge high/low warning levels and colors for each setting now...

I actually mounted them a couple weeks ago, 5 minute job for a trial fitting
...and just got around to wiring them up with sensors to actually work, that took almost 5 hours

couple more pics ...

all gauges and pod are from Auto Meter

Over the weekend installed a Retraxone tonneau and Bed Rug mat. Absolutely love the tonneau. The black matches my black truck almost perfect.
