Haltech Sport 2000 Install in 8 second true street car

I am going to use this thread to document our installation of a Haltech Sport 2000 complete setup in my 89 true street car.

The list of things we are doing is as follows:

Haltech Sport 2000
Haltech Wideband Kit
Haltech IQ3 Racepak Dash
Custom Haltech provided wiring harness

The list of sensors are:

Turbo backpressure
Pressure before the intercooler
Transmission line pressure
Fuel pressure
Oil pressure

Due to that we eliminated all of the gauges except transmission temperature

I will be adding very detailed tech here but wanted to get the ball rolling with a first set of pictures.

We got started last night on getting the harness roughed in, racepak and Florida 5.0 cluster fit and the electronics mounted under the dash.

The Florida 5.0 plate is nice. The IQ3 does require trimming plastic in the housing that goes around the cluster. Will post pictures shortly.

The harness was custom made for the specific electronics and configuration of my car.

We made an aluminum plate to mount the box to due to it needing to be secured from behind and then attached the new plate to the aluminum panel under the dash.

First off, I've asked the Corral if they could add Haltech, Holley and
Pro-M Engine Management Systems to the dedicated Sub-forums like the ones above so far my inquiries have fell on deaf ears. If more ask, maybe we can get it accomplished.

Looking forward to reading about your installation, tuning and overall usage of the system. FLF, did a great write-up on his installation but would of liked to see more of the tuning and overall usage on the system.

The Florida 5.0 panel sits the IQ3 racepak slightly recessed but the shape of the Racepak requires trimming the center of the cover before it goes on.

As you can see in the picture the center is now completely open. We continued to trim until the cover fits without hitting the racepak and is under no force.

I eliminated the cowl mounted gauges on my car as well as a shiftlight since the racepak will provide that functionality.

We mounted the IQ3 and the Florida 5.0 panel.

ImageUploadedByAG Free1388967872.160081.jpg

It required trimming due to the size of the iq3.

ImageUploadedByAG Free1388967937.342056.jpg

We also grabbed some led's to make up turn signal indicators, high beam indicators and a red light for when the MSD traction control is active.

ImageUploadedByAG Free1388967988.226552.jpg

Everything is mounted up on my pre-existing aluminum panel. Cleaner then the huge boxes from the accel DFI

ImageUploadedByAG Free1388968078.994534.jpg

That will be cleaned up further once we connect all of the wires.

Wednesday night we should have much of the interior wiring done.

Not really familiar with everything the MSD grid system offers.
However I understand it controls many timing events and some data recording.

Wont the Haltech system do all this making the grid unit not necessary ??

Thanks.

I am currently using the MSD GRID to control rev limiters (burnout, footbrake, transbrake, rev limit). I also added the 7761 and a driveshaft RPM sensor for traction control. This was all in with the Accel DFI I had removed which did not offer these things.

Our current plan is leave the MSD setup as is and focus on converting everything over that had been controlled by the DFI.

We will be working on the car all night tonight.

Mike

The relay box is finished. The Haltech relays are set to trigger from ground so we altered my override switches to use ground. We also changed the way their box is wired so for those two relays they are not energized by switched ignition so we can run the fans and pump with the car off.

Also re wired line lock and one trans fan because of other changes.

I spent the night setting up a newer laptop with all if the necessary software.

I had Florida 5.0 send me their lights for the dash:

ImageUploadedByAG Free1389843912.201260.jpg

ImageUploadedByAG Free1389843920.351452.jpg

Turn signals, high beam, and a red for traction control from the MSD 7761.

Ryan was otherwise re wiring things all night.

We are working again in am, hopefully will have some better updates.

Wiring in the back of cluster:

ImageUploadedByAG Free1389899343.423249.jpg

Default Haltech IQ3 screen layout

ImageUploadedByAG Free1389899355.374976.jpg

We tested a number of things, blinker indicators, high beam indicator, traction control indicator, radiator fan, trans cooler fans, water pump. It all works.

There is some minor clean up needed still in the car but it is about 90% ready for the motor.

I started installing the sensors that are for pressure, pre-intercooler and manifold pressure, both 5 bar.

Nice write up, that iq3 looks real nice. By any chance does it show fuel level?

Yes, we have the factory signal wire wired to an input on the Haltech and we are going to use some rocket science to convert the signal for display on Haltech.

Trying to dodge the $135 racepak part. More to come.

I just ordered two more temperature sensors:
-oil temp
-transmission temp

I am going to change strategy on one thing, I think I'm going to put the transmission temp displayed through the racepak and put a fuel level gauge in the spot I have in my radio panel for transmission temp. I currently have an ultralite pro comp gauge which is very visible in silver. Will order a black gauge so it is nondescript.

I stocked up on these fluid sending units. 1/8"npt and a 0-5v reference. Autometer can send you the temp graph...I have it somewhere.
Auto Meter

They use these Metripak connectors...verified by Autometer techline
EFI Connection, LLC - Connector Details

As long as you can costomize the the inputs for the Haltech and you have a 5v reference signal you can have the Haltech monitor anything.

My plan is to put a fluid sensor pretty much everywhere but I am using Holley Dominator EFI.

Dart 348ci, Ed Curtis cam/valvetrain, Precision 76mm, Holley Dominator EFI, CNP ignition, tons of Holler EFI small parts, 4"dp, 4R70W w/T-brake, new suspension coming soon.

Little 750rwhp at 6,000rpms and only 10lbs of boost before we just got tired of playing with clutches. New 4R70W and we are turning it up. Expecting 1,000rwhp.

The sensors came directly from Haltech. They ship with the plug and pins to splice into an input and the ECU has the temp graph pre-loaded.

It was too easy not to do.

If it helps, leave a few extra unused wires run throughout in the case of future updates and plans. Everyone that wires a car 3 months latter goes crap.. wish I had run XYZ. Perfect example would be a new boost controller.

The haltech harness has a number of extra inputs and outputs and a pass through wire to get under the hood.

We did well and only had to modify the relay setup slightly to allow for the fans to run with the car off.

They really helped expedite the process for us.

Picking motor up tomorrow and should have underhood shots of the finished wiring later this weekend.

Back pressure sensor setup. Not sure how well the cushion clamp will do in the heat but it did work well.

On mine I used a steel fitting and tig'd it on. Then ran copper tubing to the sensor

the install looks pretty, don't know if you needed that thick of a tube too it. 1/16 would have been fine..

I had copper here and I wasn't comfortable with it. Copper is soft enough that you could break it ir junk it working on the car.

Those parts were a total of $15, I am not worried about it being overkill.

The car is running.

We had a good day today of really learning and understanding how the crank trigger and distributor work in conjunction with one another. We also spent time understanding the right way to phase the distributor. I suspect we did not have this done right with the DFI and that may have been one of the reasons we were burning up caps and rotors. We have this one dead on at 23 degrees of timing where we are at full boost.

I have to commend Haltech for excellent support. We identified a few challenges late last night and had answers and a revised map sent back to us first thing this morning. Following that the car started right up. A breath of fresh air vs. the DFI where a breathing human being was an impossibility to find.

The car had an open turbo flange and was sucking through the intercooler so we didn't get a true sense for how it is running.

My turbo is tracking for tomorrow AM. Assuming it fits without further work I will have it running correctly tomorrow night.

Feels good to be getting closer.

Awesome update. I assume you will put some pics of the Turbo in your other thread?

Dart 348ci, Ed Curtis cam/valvetrain, Precision 76mm, Holley Dominator EFI, CNP ignition, tons of Holler EFI small parts, 4"dp, 4R70W w/T-brake, new suspension coming soon.

Little 750rwhp at 6,000rpms and only 10lbs of boost before we just got tired of playing with clutches. New 4R70W and we are turning it up. Expecting 1,000rwhp.

For some reason I can't post pictures in that thread...but I can here. I may post it here if I don't have a better place for it. I still don't have the turbo, UPS is majorly screwed up due to the weather.
