We removed the engine to provide better access. This is the current firewall layout for a dual battery / fadec configuration.
Dad worked on the SS firewall covers - as shipped they are pretty rough and need detailed deburring etc, the A side alternator cables were too large for the standard hole. Hole saw and careful mounting seemed to work
Cover plate mounted up - the extra space works well.
Installed the oil restrictor fitting ready for positioning the firewall mounted manifold.
I replaced the VANs supplied oil fittings with new steel elbows. These are really tight, but the standard oil lines plus two 90 degree elbows in the oil cooler seems to work OK.
The firewall fuseblocks are now mounted, the misc individual block also got heat shrink on the feed lines
