Already purchased:
Already installed my LC-1 from innovate (its how I tunned my carb)
http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/xcar ... 262&page=1

Fuel system (return line, pump, filter, regulator) - from Mario
Trigger Wheel - from Mario
sensors - from Mario (CLT, IAT)
http://www.thedubshop.net/

LS2 coils from website -I'll update later with link if anybody wants.
http://www.rrrdynotuning.com/store/#ecw ... uct=548968
CB Performance 40mm F.I. throttle bodies
http://www.cbperformance.com

a custom built wiring harness from Mario. :)
22 lb injectors (for now) 220cc


I plan to install the Trigger wheel within the next two weeks,
and Install the Fuel system, fuel pump, regulator, filter, return line but not the throttle bodies within the next two weeks,
then get the ECU position sorted.

This is my daily driver, so I do a little each weekend. :)

You'll need a 3-wire TPS. Or did the throttle-bodies come with one?

Sounds like a solid setup, MS3?

Very interesting. The separate page for the 48mm TBs says the TPS must be ordered separately.

http://www.cbperformance.com/catalog.asp?ProductID=412

I'm cogitating on a FI 2110 for my KG, not sure the 40s will flow enough.

I'm really hoping you go first to find that out! :lol:

Ron (porche megasquirter here) was / is running jevee 43mm on a I think 2184... or something of the likes...
Its the hardest pulling NA car I have ever been in. :)
I personally think you will LOVE 40 mm, :)

40's are more then enough for a 2110 Max, your still stuck in that carb mentality :P. 44IDF's only have 36mm venturi's.

Oh btw, mine didn't come with the TPS, I had to buy all the extra hardware.
all said and done, I have about 800$ in the throttle bodies, fuel rails, fuel rail holders, tps, linkage hiem joints, and some air cleaner covers (mine were missing)

So a quick update:

Had a little vacation,
car is in the shop currently getting 2nd gear repaired.. its warranty work. I'm looking for some fuel line clips. I plan to mount the lines under the body. I think I will go ahead and run two lines, one as a backup. I put out everything in the living room floor. I'll take some pics later tonight when I get home. I got the new pully installed, but can't find the bracket and hall sensor... Time to tear apart the office... (dont have a garage).

Pictures of the goodies soon.

Wideband is in, toothed pully is in,

ah and for full sequential you need a cam sensor and a crank sensor, for the crank I did Mario's pully,
for the cam I did CB Cam Sync.. Its pretty heavy duty I thought it would be some plastic thing but its solid billet its probably about 3 to 5 lbs
CB CamSync:

one negative - the screw heads were partially stripped :(

Well I was lazy during the break, I got the left side throttle body installed, along with my fuel pressure gauge. It was a really tight fit. I had to use a hammer to dent out the sides because the fuel rail is hitting. I ended up having to make trips to the hardware store and VW shop, every time I did that it was 3 hours out of my day. Waking up at 11am didnt help either since it gets dark here at 5pm. The dark doesn't really bother me but by 6pm its cold.

Here are some pics: (If I do this right)

(Sorry I boogered my web album.) !!!
