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...

+1 on owning your own lift thats badass, can't wait to see what the cam covers look like on the car its gonna be really clean. What are you doing for a fuel system?

how many miles are on that pristine beast!?!? good luck with the build and cant wait to see more?

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!

Im not highly knowledgeable in the world of Terminators but what are the atvantages of installing Ford GT spark plugs?

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.

is that a rotary lift???
:rockon:

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.
