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
First pic of her. Sept 17th or 18th 2007.
Didnt do any modding the first couple of years owning it. First mod was Smoked w/ Amber headlights.
I decided to throw some paint onto the parchment interior.
I bought some rims and tires. S Styles 18x9/10, GY Eagle F1 GSD3 265/35/18
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.
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
Seems like a good location, out of the way, kinda sleeper, good visibility.
Eaton M112, lip shaved, silencer ports sealed, unported
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)
310lph fuel pump
Adapter plate(unsure who's it is)
IAT2 sensor and pigtail
