Fought the Terminator all day....finally gave up and decided to finish something I could feel good about. Tied in and balanced my amp and sub.
This is 2 -3.5" dash speakers, 2- 6x9s and an 8" powered sub.... volume was maybe 20%... Now the Retrosound unit is powering the 2 -3.5" dash speakers, the other is running the the amp. I'm thinking I dont need the door speakers...

I don't know, kinda weak juice, maybe try the Wayne and Garth stairway to heaven track to really work it out... Might be okay for PBS newscasts, but if you are really looking to rock in the free world...

Sorry, just kidding, that is about as far from weak juice as it can be! I'm guessing you could forego the door speakers! Great thread, makes me want to find another 67 and just go wild like yours! Waiting for the first video after you fire it up with that crazy looking front drive pulley system!

Thanks, I figured that's what you were saying but wasn't sure. Ya I'm ready to hear the thing run too, distract have much luck with it yesterday. Appears I'm not getting any spark, don't know if it's related to the Terminator or a the MSD... Trying to get motivated to back to the shop this morning...yesterday was so aggravating...

Had a crappy day yesterday...got so pissed I couldn't get the thing to fire off....tried everything but nothing seemed to make sense, came home and stewed over it...then it hit me
( dumbass).... I knew I had power to the 6al and was convinced the ECU wasnt sending a signal....I never check voltage in crank!!!! Went to the shop this morning and what do ya know!!!
Having a fueling issue at idle.... anyway seemed like enough of a good day to leave it at that...

Nice!! Congratulations! Now, how are you going to hear that sound system with that beast rumbling away? You just might need those door speakers! Inaugural drive plans? Have a cold one, you deserve it!

That's was the question I asked when I decided to purchase my stereo equipment! I'm still learning this efi stuff, so I'm not sure how long it will take me to get the fuel issue figured out.
Still have a few things I need to wire up. My last purchase that I need to hurry up and do is to buy a drive shaft... I'm hoping by the end of the month I will burning up the roads!!!!

Havent updated the thread in a while. Had bad oil leaks at the tears of the Moroso VCs, aluminum ones, had a set of steel and they seem to have don the trick.
Have the carpet and seats in, exhaust is complete. Need to clean up the inside.
Tried to drive it around the yard Saturday , first problem was that the shifter linkage is still giving me fits had to go into Nuetral back up into reverse to get it to engage... but I just backed it out about 30' and went to pull back in the shop and would get a backfireb through the TBI which would kill the motor...
It's been a while since I've been on the laptop navigating the HP files and feel like I forgot everything I learned...
I guess it part of the game though...
Also got my new Power Lok and 3.73 gears from Cass.. now I just need someone (@Cranky ) that would be willing to come out and help me swap this out...

Well havent posted much here lately as no great milestones have been achieved, but started assembling my grill while my surrounds are out getting refurbished.
Also choose to go to LED headlights.Havent decided if I'm going to wire them where only one bright comes on or leave them both on high beam...
