Well looks as thought ive missed all ford day by about 2 weeks.

I little more progress has happened

Difilipos are on new exhaust fitted (temp).

Goes to merchanics monday for him to install the tranny cooler lines ps line and fuel lines.

Then off to matt branch to complete wiring loom and get her started for me.

So with some luck within 2 weeks she will come alive with 2 more cylinders.

The interior is NL FAIRLANE GHIA. Have the el gt steering wheel with woodgrain tbar.

The dash face is all black with black climate and trip computewr and all button upgraded from ef to make it all look in sequence, so no grey buttons.

The dash is just sitting there atm on the weekend have to put the auto pedal box back in.

Finally i have struck gold car is up and running. After many months its drivable. About a week ago smartshield was bypassed had to make a relay for the start.

Was missing a little but nuthing a set of spark plugs couldnt fix. Today 3500 convertor was put in and feels great.

Quiet a few things to still sort out need to still merge wire to run auto properly as i have to drive through gears otherwise itll take off in third and same applies for kick back need to shift down kinda like full manual. Also only things that work on the dash atm is fuel battery. Still need to tap into some wire for rev tacho, speedo and oil pressure. ( thigns ino nuthing about )

On the upside a tune has been put into the ecu and feels great, only runnign a 2.25 merge into 2.5 single exhaust atm will be look into getting 2.5 duel with x pipe or 3 inch cat back system unsure at this stage.

Also i have 3.9's that will need to go in over the next few weeks.

Camshaft will be here in a few weeks also and then re tune.

Promising so far windsors are the s**t :P

I got a funny feeling its allready got a cam as its very lopey and very grumpy when cold. Maybe previous owner but a b-e303 cam in. As its allready got 1.7 rollers that shoudnt be in a series 11 xr8 ute engine.

I guess once i put her on the dyno will no as i think these engines make about 150rwk stock and with the difilppos and exhaust along with the tune thats in it maybe 165-170rwk if any more them maybe she does have some sorta cam in it.

That's cool man, Neither is my EB Ghia's bay, it's fairly dirty & i do need to tidy up the wiring, but there is other more important things to do first. I'm just curious to see what it currently looks like, and it will give us something to compare to when your finished. :cool:

Cheers
