Man, the weather has not been cooperating! After about two weeks of rain, i spent a couple days mowing the jungle that was our yard. So now im finally caught back up, and progress can resume!
First up, theres now a tee in the OEM port, so i can run both the OEM & the NVU oil pressure senders:
New Ford Performance 47# injectors:
...and BAM! Injectors, fuel rail, wiring harness, and plenum installed!
New BBK twin 61mm throttle body:
This thing is a beast; way bigger than the OEM throttle body. Should flow a ton more air:
Also picked up this cool Felpro thermostat gasket, p/n 35041T. Supposed to solve the typical ford leaky t-stat housing issue. Its ~1/8" thick, and has an o-ring seal on both sides. Its a pretty nice piece, and looks like it should work well
Progress! Now its starting to look like something!
Distributor all ready to go with new o-ring, cap, rotor & TFI module:
Engine at TDC & distributor installed. Plus a big win- the oil cooler is installed!
My frame notch was a huge success; Theres lot of room for the oil cooler, and it fit up in there easily with plenty of room to spare.
Super excited about this one, it clears like it was made that way by Ford!
From here on out, i think everything left to do is basic reassembly, so progress should speed up. My torque converter showed up yesterday too, which was the last item i need to finish reassembly. If all goes well, i might be able to fire the engine in about a week's time!
