3. Lastly, how have you run the wires coming from fuel pressure probe ( up by fuel pressure regulator ) back to where they connect to universal sensor adapter ( back by firewall)? The colored wires are kind of long and I want to make sure I route them back there in a way they won't be prone to any heat damage or other damage as well as kind of hidden from view.
Thanks for the info and I can't wait to get started on this project
1. I'm not quite sure what you are asking here but I have my daisy chain wire routed such that the connector for everything that plugs in sits right by the brake booster and steering shaft. It is out of the way and not really susceptible to any heat sources. Hope this helps.
2. In my opinion (IMO), the best way to mount the probe end of the EGT probe is right at the back of the driver's side exhaust manifold where the elbow is that connects to the up-pipe and drill such that the bit goes up into the last port going into the up-pipe. There is A LOT of space right there and you shouldnt have any problem getting the probe away from the walls of the manifold to only sense the gases entering the up-pipe.
3. I just ran my wires from the probe at the regulator on my RR kit straight back to the daisy chain connector. I simply looped all of the extra wiring and zip tied it so it wouldnt flop all over the place and then I used looming from autozone to help protect the wiring from heat and abrasion of engine components.
I am sorry I dont have pics but the main thing for the wiring is to make sure you keep things relaxed and protected from heat and abrasion. As long as you do that, it really doesnt matter. Hope this helps.
