Wanna read a build thread? Click me... (Fink's M112 Build)
Take a wet rag with some cleaner on it and clean that harness!
Another thing you could do is put duck tap over the intake ports and plug the injector holes then degrease the entire engine.
Of course, tape off all of the electrical plugs and vacuum ports.
I Tripple Wal-Mart bagged my alternator. :P
To dry, use a shop vac with a small section of garden hose taped to the end (About 12") and set it to blow and use it as a high power air cannon to blow all the water out.
It worked great every time I did it like that.
As for the broken clips on the injector plugs, mine broke too but they stay down just fine but securing them would be the best thing to do as you dont want one of those losing contact under boost.
adapter plate test fitted for clearance issues. Need to pry the heater core/bleeder hard lines to clear, also the driver side fuel rail to clear the fuel pressure sensor/regulator(w.e that is)
M112 fitted, further adjustments to bleeder hard lines need to be made to clear the snout. Idler pulley also added and belt alignment test before drilling of mounting holes.
The way I did the mount holes was get the M112 square to the adapter while also being aligned with the belt. Then drill the forward most 2 holes, insert bolts and tighten. then continue drilling until you get to the back. Then take the adapter+M112 off and drill the final holes. BUT BE CAREFUL WHEN DRILLING WITH THE M112 ON THE CAR, FUEL RAILS ARE DIRECTLY BELOW WHERE YOU DRILL!!!
Just a shot to show how much high the M112 sits.
Pulley plugs 4,5,6. In order in the pic. WTF is the build up on plug 6?
Wonder what a green blower would look like on there... hum....
The plan for the 4.2, right now anyways, is to paint the block black, polish the heads(or only what you can see when installed), black valve covers w/ the raised up Ford logo in green. I have the 4.2 valve covers on the car right now. Ill snap a pic if someone wants. Oh and the blower will be black, with the SVT painted green.

Thanks. Its going together alot smoothly than I thought.
I went to a local speed shop in Saskatoon, Speedtech, and talked to some of the guys there. They said that they dont know Delta Force tuning software all that much. So I guess I need to get a tune from VMP before I get dyno tuned. Im still going to use the Special Forces I have to be able to drive the car down the street to the car show on the 18th... unless I can get dyno time by the 15th, at the absolute latest.
Basically all that is left is to finish the vac lines(need to wait till tomorrow when Napa is open to get some T and X fittings and some smaller hose), load the tune, wait for RTV to dry on the snout before final tightening and add oil, and mount the coil pack. Oh and do the gas pedal mod since I have at least 1 1/2" slack with the new cable.
Then I still need to wait until my new upper and lower control arms come..... apparently it takes over a week to go from Ontario to Saskatchewan.... figure that one out.
