I am struggling to figure out how to connect my 8an feed and 6an return fuel lines to the OEM fuel rail. Thoughts?

It has been some time since I've worked on the Datsun. I've been away for the holiday, and finally had a good day to put in some work. I ran fuel lines. (8an and 6an). Everything fits great, and the fuel tank is back in. Lines are ran to the motor, but I'm waiting on a fitting to button it up. I also need to blow out the lines with some compressed air to blow out any residue or crud. Next step is wiring, of which is 90% done (I hope it all works right)!

One step closer. Finally got around to mounting the board with the ECU and relays. I have temporarily wired it (will clean up later once it starts). I tested it last night by turning it over for a second, and was able to do so. I did not however get any lights on the s2000 dash... Come to think of it, I also didn't check to see if the ECU was getting power. I'll check more on that tonight.

So the ECU has power and was able to connect to Hondata ECU editor, but had to mess with the cluster a little bit to get it power. So far so good. Things I must do before starting:

1) Torque the crank pulley
2) Blow out the fuel lines to remove debris, and reconnect the lines
3) Loop (cap off) the original fuel tank feed/return lines
4) Add gas
5) Add Honda MTF to the tranny
6) Extend the O2 sensor to fit the new bung and make sure the right sensor is selected in the ECU

I hope to have it started this weekend.

Tried to start it again last night and found that the battery was dead. Tried to charge it but it didn't like that either. Googled the battery and it turns out it was for an electric wheel chair... I was able to get it started with my power pack, but none the less I'm buying a new battery which will ship on Monday. I was able to clean up the wiring and will post some pics soon, but found an issue. The speedo gauge was getting a phantom MPH. Unless somehow the car started in gear (no rear end or driveshaft yet) which I'm not even sure if its possible, I'm not sure how it is reading a MPH.

Oh man that's funny. Haha. How did you end up with a battery for a electric wheel chair in your car?

The car came with a battery box already inside, with the awesome wheel chair battery!

Quick question for those that race. This car is only going to see spirited driving (canyon roads and tracks). Do you foresee any issues with wiring the radiator fan to a switch and just always having it on?
