Love these threads....they never get old
Great attention to detail. love that heat shield for the alternator.
Awesome job, keep up the great work
Sub’ing for more of your very detailed build. Looking really good so far
Been a while since I posted an update but I was just working on boring stuff like cleaning and painting. The ABS module bracket had some surface rust so I sand blasted and painted it with POR 15.
The firewall and trans tunnel were pretty beat up so I painted them
Max Motorsports steering linkage painted with POR 15 1200F paint due to the proximity to the headers.
SFC's were given multiple coats of POR15 black.
Gave the rad and condensor and thorough cleaning, and some fresh paint.
Methanol injection plumbed into the lower intake with -4 AN fittings and hose.
Dual 375 cc/min nozzles do not protrude into the lower intake at all.
The power adder for this build. A polished Gen 3 2.9L Whipple!
Drilling and tapping the IC mounting holes for 6mm bolts in preperation for the the Cobra Engineering IC pass-through.
Hand polished billet fuel rails.
ID 1000 fuel injectors.
Cobra Engineering IC pass-through.
Fuel rail cross-over with -8 PTFE braided hose which continues back to the billet fuel hat on the tank.
Hand polished 3.5" pulley.
Billet Pro Shop "Terminator" coil covers
Ford COP's and Denso Iridium TT "Twin Tip" plugs gapped to 0.028". This will be my first experience with these plugs but most OEMs seem to be switching to them so they must be descent.
Setting up to bolt the blower to the engine.
Wasn't sure if my cherry picker could go this high...lol!
Now for some beauty shots of everything buttoned up!
Wow! That looks really good!
The polish job on that whipple looks better than mine. Did you have to touch it up in the crevices or did it come that good from whipple?
Super nice build!
The polishing was perfect right out of the box, I was very pleased with it.
I guess they've stepped up their polishing game. I've got a BPS polished TVS & it's nearly perfect.
My 2.3 Whipple is ok but not nearly as extensive as the BPS job.
Looking forward to some track times!
Wow. Amazing attention to detail, and awesome build!
This build and thread win. Period.
Excellent, OP. These are my favorite builds.

Ya, makes me wanna run right out and buy another Terminator.
You make it look easy OP!! And looks damn good
Think a polished 2.9 Whip is in my future, if the polish quality has improved
Really good thread
Man, 6 weeks to post an update but I've been working hard!
Engine is back in the car and I managed to get it in without any major gouges in the shiny bits!
The engine wire harness was pretty beat up so I decided to re-tape it using self-fusing tape (just like OEM). The tape has no adhesive so it will never turn into a sticky mess like electrical tape. I found this stuff on Amazon, works/looks great!
Since I had the wire harnesses out I decided to integrate with wires for the oil pressure and oil temperature gauges into the factory alternator/starter harness. I removed the alternator charge wire from the harness since I will be running 0 gauge cables to between the alt and battery.
0 gauge cables from the side terminals to the alternator. Positive wire has a 200 amp fuse. There's also a ground cable to the header panel.
