Well I finally decided to make one these here things. Seems like a smart thing to do.

Lets get down to business...

Meet Elise... Electric Green... Elise... yeah

1999 Ford Mustang, 3.8L Essex based OHV V6, 4R70W transmission, 7.5" SRA

My attempt at a grill delete. Still holding up after 2 yrs.

Last February I purchased a incomplete M112 kit. Came with most of the major parts. Did not come with shocks/struts.

I put in a Auburn differential and kept the stock 3.27's sometime around April/May 2010. I believe I put on Bullitt front brakes around this time. Also put on LT headers and O/R H. Roush side exhaust mufflers were used to make it tolerable.

Smoked the tail lights and cut out the fog light bars. Side skirts got all chewed up when PATS messed up and I had to dolly my car home. Lets just say, dolly turned, car didnt.

Bought a Saleen style 232 decal. After waiting for C/C plates, I lowered the car. Cut 1 coil off each spring and removed all isolators. KYB GR2 S/S and J&M C/C plates. F: 27" R: 27 1/4". Foglights also added.

One day I was in the impound lot of my mechanic's and I look across the alley and see an engine sitting there(at the back door of a parts store). I looked at it and thought it was a windstar 3.8. Well I wait a few months to see if anything happens to it, nope still sitting there. So I walk into the store and ask someone about the motor out back. They said its junk so its going to the salvage yard. I then told him that Ill take it, so we got a forklift and put it in the box of my truck.

After a couple days I look at the engine. Start getting some numbers and I find out its a 4.2L from a 97 F 150. SCORE!! So now Im tearing it down for a nice build... shooting for 500+ on meth inj.

Click the image to open in full size.
I have the engine tore down to a shortblock, but I dont have pics uploaded at the moment.

Pic of the heads/lower off 4.2 mocked up to test adapter plate.

Oops, that aint gonna fit.

I bought some gauges and decided where I wanted to mount them. Boost 30/30 Mechanical, Innovate LC-1 wideband w/ XD-16??? gauge, Oil pressure 0-100psi mechanical

Click the image to open in full size.
Seems like a good location, out of the way, kinda sleeper, good visibility.

Parts waiting:
Eaton M112, lip shaved, silencer ports sealed, unported
M112 Plenum/TB
IAC blockoff plate(wont need since running hoodless)
JLT RAI w/ 90mm LMAF
39#s(not sure, they are blue. was told they are 39's)
Idler
310lph fuel pump
Adapter plate(unsure who's it is)
IAT2 sensor and pigtail
misc gaskets
Stainless braided brake lines F&R
Cobra rear discs + pads + brackets
PMP side skirts

I think thats it for now. Im gonna search my phone for some pics, cause I know I have more.

Few questions I wanna clear up.

Stock crank pulley and 3.6 blower pulley makes 10-11psi? UDP lowers boost right?
99/00 throttle cable and cruise control work with cobra TB? looks like it will, must confirm.
Should I buy LCA's? Im not going to be taking the car to the strip, AT ALL. maybe a couple pulls on the highway, but no launches at lights or anything.

that is funny, i purchased my car in 07 but in April. You will need to switch over the oil pan, i would say switch to the mustang lower intake but keep the f150 upper, that makes the engine look sweet!!! Let me know if you need any help with this engine build as i just finished mine.

Im going off of what Ive been told...

1- stock 3.65" pulley with stoc lower makes around 12psi, according to Rico. he saw 14psi at one point. stock upper with 25% lower say 7lbs.

2- no, swap on 01-04 cable, according to nathan.

3- should be able to get away without them

found a few more pics on my phone.

Couple of the heads off the 4.2. before getting cleaned up. Basically cleaned them up, put them in a box and set them in a closet.

Pic of the PMP side skirts I picked up. Testing on the car.

Click the image to open in full size.

Im thinking my frame isnt square on my car. Reason is I can stick my pinky inbetween the drivers door panel and dashboard, but I cant even get a pencil in on the other side. Also the drivers side side skirt doesnt fit(too short by about 1/2"), but the passenger side does.

Snapped a quick pic yesterday. Dont mind the POS in the background.

I had to rig my 2000 throttle cable to work. Using the new style makes for a much cleaner install.

Sent a guy a message about a 04 throttle cable. TPS is ordered.

Found a 95 GT for parts, no engine or trans, $500. I mainly want it for the 8.8 and the black interior.

NGK or Autolite plugs? I had NGK TR55GP's and they only lasted 4 months, so Im a little hesitant about NGK.

I havent seen a copper plug in at least 5 years.

TR6's will be here monday.

Do I seal the front snout and the rotors or just the snout on the M112?

INSTALL IS SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK. Tuesday or later since I have a alignment on Monday.

So I got my alignment today and I was helping him do it. We adjusted the C/C plates as much as we can and we couldnt get the right camber.

Driver side is set at -1.2* and passenger is at -1.8*. Driver side is on borderline spec(-1.3* is where the green area starts). Passenger is obvious out of spec, even after fully adjusting the C/C plates.

So what he said to do was take the top and bottom plate off, lengthen the stock camber slots(only like 1/16-1/4") and then install the plates and adjust.

Passenger side:

axle removal started. Pics to come later.

ran into a problem... lower control arm bolts are rusted to the sleeve on the inside of the bushing. 10lb sledge + wd40 =/= bolt out. getting pretty frustrated.

I HATE rusty/seized bolts.

I put the backing plates in an acid solution to remove the rust, so Im basically done while those soak and the LCA bolts soak in weasel ****. Tweaking my exhaust a bit since it hit the axle on certain bumps before.
