Looks like it's all coming together for you nicely.I know how hard it is trying to find some of the parts you need.I spent a long time searching the web for a throttle cable.You'll be very glad you did the swap the first time you drive it.You'll probably be like me,grinning from ear to ear.LOL Did you fabricate a throttle cable bracket yet?

Couple randoms here, got my thermostat and hoses in the mail the other day. Also how i plan to cap my IAC for the time being. (it is too tall right now but i will be cutting it down to be lower, still dont know if this IAC will work) Also a pic of how i routed the heater hoses on the back of the motor, crude, but they get the job done.

if you used another coolant neck on the back of the drivers side head, you could make your own head cooling mod like i did. its cheap and ive have no head tick issues with it (even though some people argue that its not temperature that causes the tick, its still nice to be safe)

small update. Got my composite IMRC plates today with a mark viii intake manifold and intake tubing. (picked all of it up for $45 on ebay). Also got all my coolant hoses hooked up. Small thing i noticed is that when i cut my stock gt hose for the upper radiator hose, the piece that was left over would have perfectly fit from the block to the thermostat. So i wouldnt have had to buy the $15 hose for that.. haha.

-masterofthepuppets - That'd b interesting to try, too bad the motor is already in the car also thanks for pointing out that the IAC may not work, cuz i actually looked into it!!
The next thing i also noticed is i was going to use the stock GT IAC instead of the Cobra IAC, well after noticing i had the iac off the mark viii manifold, i compared the two and saw a huge difference. you can see the difference in the pics, and i dont mean just where the vacuum port is.

I also came up with a fix for the cruise control and having the short cable. Instead of trying to find the discontinued cruise cable for a cobra, you can relocate the cruise motor. You will need to lengthen like 6 wires for the connector, but you can mount the cruise motor where your battery is and the cable will wrap around perfectly to the throttle body. (YES YOU WILL NEED TO RELOCATE BATTERY FOR THIS TO WORK).

Got the IMRC plates all cleaned out and epoxied up. Installed those and the intake last night. Also installed the stock GT injectors and Cobra fuel rail, attached a bunch of connectors, put the spark plug wires on, put the coolant hoses on, and started trying to figure out what wires i gotta lengthen... fun process! haha. Also, the stock Mark VIII intake tube wont fit, and the intake tubing is also 20mm larger than the GT!!

well got my intake tubing and alternator! Swap is now basically finished. She runs great! stock 96 gt computer, stock 19lb/hr injectors, stock GT maf, stock gt wiring harness. Thing rips. Gotta get it tuned though, the rev limiter comes very quick with this 4v. but it sounds awesome. Ill try to get a video up later this weekend with video of it driving. but for now, this is what ya got!

when you get it tuned you should use 24 lb injectors.

its running great. the biggest difference i noticed was from like 50-120. The old npi would never pull from that speed very well. This thing feels like it just want to go. What sucks is the GT tune keeps the rev limiter so low, i can feel that the motor wants to keep pulling past the 5900rpm mark. So im constantly hitting it by mistake, just not use to the power band and how fast the rpms climb.

no i took them out. The lincoln injectors were literally seized into the metal imrc plates. I couldnt get a couple of them to even come out.. and a couple of them were so corroded from sitting I wasnt even gonna try putting them in.

nice. i was just lookin around craigslist to see if i could snag a cheap used 4v. but again i fall to the jersey standard of everyone wanting top dollar for their garbage... cheapest i found was a 100k motor @ 800. hell, a set of used B heads was goin for 350 themselves :/ wanna drop a boosted 4v into a fox hatchback or 3rd gen camaro.

just out of curiosity whats the HP limit on the crank itself if just the rods/pistons/bearings were swapped?
