    I thought about plumbing a tube directly off the EGR plate i've got. that will be the most accurate IMO

    Honestly the best thing to do would be to put multiple 1/8"npt fittings in the intake manifold, and run each individual device off its own feed.

    The 2.8 intake has a nice flat spot on the back for this.

    Default Day 2877 "Operation Silence!"

    For a while now I've wanted to quieten down the road noise inside the car. The uni body is super thin and its so exhausting sometimes listening to the roar of the tires and also the rattle of the suspension. My goal is to tighten up things and throw some sound deadening mat on the floors and doors to hear less outside noise and to keep inside noise in.
    While I'm working on this I also decided to take the time to rerun all the wiring that I've added to the console area. This also means designing a console. I've ordered an armrest from another vehicle that looks like it will do the trick. I'll mount it and build the console from that to make room for all the wires.
    My supplies include the following:
    Tools, solder, 4 power buses 1 ground

    Spare connectors

    Wire Loom

    And the all important Sound deadening mat.

    This past weekend I started the process of removing all the interior to clean and put down the deadening mat.
    I feel ashamed that there is this much trash. Between Kids and my busy schedule this isn't surprising. Just embarrassing.

    There is a pile of miniature gravel in the back seat where my Son gets in every morning.... I need to pay more attention to cleaning.


    Another view of the amount of wiring that is in the dash. this is hidden behindthe radio :-\

    All stripped!

    I've been riding like this all week. You hear everything. The carpet does a pretty good job dampening the sound.

    Finally installed my Grill for the 8" I hope it doesn't stick out too far and hit my t tops.

    And since the wife's car had a bum amp (one of my super old kicker amps finally "kicked" the bucket), I decided to pull my 2 channel for the door speakers to put in the wife's and add a 4 channel to the Camaro to power all 4 speakers. It's an easy way to justify getting a bigger amp for the car lol.

    I replaced the RF 2 channel I put in the wife's car with this. A super small but powerful 4 channel amp. I should be able to hide this under the new console. It's really small for 300w.

    Default Day 2897 "Operation Silence 2"

    I've been trying very hard to get a lot of this done, but energy and weather do slow me down a bit. This is the progress so far.
    The trunk area is done. It was one of the hardest places to start, but its done now.

    Moving towards the front didn't get easier, just more dangerous.

    This hole is the only access to the areas behind the doors.... I cut up my hands and arms pretty good on some very sharp edges. They don't deburr those parts apparently.


    I found a problem with one of my seat mounting bolts.... its about to tear our of the frame. I'm a big boy, so this is to be expected. I'm going to weld the metal back the best I can.
