    I have been busy this past weekend! You would think I was replacing a head or something. It is like a grenade went off in the engine bay.

    I posted pictures of the parts recently, now I am installing them. Everything is pretty easy - just a lot of disassembly. Luckily, the parts and bolts are clean which helps.

    Install list:

    KB 2.2L
    60 lb/hr injectors
    Ford GT spark plugs
    Redfire cam covers
    AFCO H/E
    HID lights


    Removal List:
    Lots of low mileage parts soon to be for sale. ;-)

    Steeda strut tower brace
    EGR system
    Stock Eaton blower
    Stock H/E
    Stock injectors
    Stock cam covers


    Intermediate Removals:

    Driver's seat
    Brake booster system
    Clutch cable
    Front bumper

    If anyone needs a picture of something for your project before I start buttoning her back up, just let me know!

    I'll be adding more each day...

    All of 7000 miles now and never been in the rain so it is pretty clean.

    I did not get to work on it much today - just cleaning parts. Tomorrow is the cam cover install day though so I will have more pictures. I have to get these babies on!

    Just a good Motorcraft plug that is one heat range colder than stock plugs. With Tousley Ford's discount they work out to be reasonable (like $3.30 each which is near the over the counter NGKs.) I prefer to use Motorcraft plugs.

    Actually a Direct Lift from gregsmithequipment.com. I was very happy with the construction (compared to Eagle Ones, etc.) Although a Rotary would be great too, this lift was a reasonable ~$1600.

    They are easy to install. Let me know if you have any quiestions on them. You just need the garage ceiling design to use them!

    This was back when my Cobra and (now former) Mach1 were together.
