    Update. My shop is pretty much done on the inside and I have all my crap in there finally.
    SUCH A RELIEVE to finally have a lift.
    That was a lifelong dream.
    So I am working on the 72.
    I pulled all the brake and fuel lines.
    I replaced the brake lines already. Since I have a 9in rear end I just did all lines myself.
    I also put in a new 9in brake booster and Master cyl. + a adjustable proportioning valve.

    Next thing is to put in a AC blockoff plate.
    And route the LS fuel line kit with the C5 fuel Regulator/Filter.

    Engine. Trans (4l80e) are in .
    And I have to say the holley /hooker mounts and trans crossmember are a huge relief.
    They work perfect!
    Rather spend some $ and safe the headache.

    I blocked the firewall.
    Installed Speed engineering 1-7/8 long tubes they needed a bit of BFH massaging to clear the eng. Crossmember but that was easy.
    All in all I'm very happy.
    Further I installed a 20 gallon fuel cell with a 450 internal walbro pump.
    All new -6AN braided fuel lines, a c5 corvette style regulator and return.

    I am debating if I should use the standalone harness and flashed ECU or invest in a holley terminator x max.
    I know it's much easier to tune etc.
    But the costs would also cover my (probably vintage air ) AC setup I definitely need in this TX heat.

    Use a factory computer and a Blackbear remote tune via data logs and emailed tunes. I’ve done 5 this way using the “auto cal” option.
