    I could have sworn i made a build thread a while ago but wasn't able to find it. I like reading about everyone else's builds so I figured I'd share mine. My goal is to have it running by Dec 31st of THIS YEAR. Lol. I have a whole 24 days left. This is how it sits. 3.8l single port. 4r70w manual vb. Megasquirt 3 with the expansion card. Dual 450's feeding 1100cc injectors. Magnafuel regulator. Etc etc... I have a ton of small things to finish like wiring in a switch and relay for the scavenge pump, drill and tap the manifold for an air temperature sensor from a supercoupe, weld a bung for the wide band. Things like that. All the big stuff like building the ecu, motor, Trans, diff is already done.

    Photo upload sorta works now. I can only upload one at a time though. Maybe it's something to do with the size of the photos. Idk.

    An engine bay shot. Almost everything is just placed in for mock up. Once I know how everything will fit together I will do a final assembly

    I've been trying to do a little bit every day on my car. Today I finally got around to removing the rats nest of wiring that was hanging down from the steering column area as well as getting rid of the aftermarket radio wiring. I have to say to whoever installed this mess, thank you for not actually splicing into any of the wires. They used those nylon wire splice things that just hook around the wire you want to tap into.

    I also filled the motor with oil and used a drill to prime the oil system. It has pressure and none of the turbo oil lines are leaking. Woohoo

    Here it is all out. Should make things easier to work with under the dash.

    Badass MAN!!!! Is this a stock motor or forged? You Plan on running this on E85? What intake is that? diggin the turbo placement.

    I like the turbo placement. Been thinking of turning my radiator sideways and putting the turbo in the grill on my car, kind of like boostedgt/

    Thanks! It's been a long build but it's finally coming together. It's a 3.8l. Supercoupe crank. Hbeam rods. Wiseco pistons. 4 bolt main caps with 1/2" main stud conversion. ARP everything.

    It's a Supercoupe lower intake that has been milled wide open and a box welded on top. There is zero restriction anywhere. The torque might suffer because there are no runners.

    I don't think I'll be running e85. There are no e85 pumps within a 50 mile radius of me. There are 2 sunoco gas stations that have 110 and 116 at the pump tho. I'll be tuning it for 93 octane. Starting with the 20lb Springs in the waste gate and will turn it up from there.

    I didn't get much of anything done yesterday. Had a dentist appointment after work. Today I managed to go to the junkyard and pull a good looking ac compressor, manifold and liquid line. I installed the compressor and liquid line. But when I went to install the manifold I hit a road block. The turbo headers are in the way of the ac manifold. I'll post pics of the issue.

    So after much beating and bending of the manifold assembly I was able to get it to clear the turbo header and bolt onto the compressor. BUT!! the rubber portion of the manifold was twisted and kinked from being bent so far forward. I tried bending the condenser pipe up down sideways. Nothing was working so I pulled out the bolt cutters and snipped a 5" chunk of rubber hose off. Now I need to find a 3/8" barb so I can connect the rubber line and clamp it on. I'm pretty sure I didn't kink any metal lines to where they will cause a restriction but only way to find out is to run the system.

    When attempting to upload a picture it does the endless loading thing. It eventually just fails to upload. Android 6.0.1 Samsung Galaxy s6 active. Any tips?

    Are you usually uploading by means of a mobile network or Wi-Fi? I sometimes have better service from my mobile network.

    IMHO, this spring rate is much too high. The boost is usually twice the spring rate. Am using 8 lb springs in the wastegates and have been able to get 21+ psi of boost with a boost controller. Normally, 8 lb springs would let you get to 16-17 psi with just the mechanical setup.

    I agree 20psi spring is to much. I ran a tial yellow in my 38mm gate and refrenced boost at the compressor and saw 8 psi at the manifold.

    This Christmas season has been hectic. I have been busy and have skipped working on the Mustang for about a week. I got the Trans oil cooler installed and new lines ran to the cooler. Filled the trans with 7 qts of dex/merc. It has a deep sump pan.
    Bought new spark plug wires and put them on. I had to reuse one spark plug wire from my last build because one of the 6 wires in the new set was a few inches too short. So one wire is a different color than the rest. Oh well.
    I almost forgot to mention what happened with the megasquirt. I plugged it in to do the basic setup and as soon as I powered it on I heard a pop and saw the blue smoke of sadness. Turns out I blew two capacitors due to a short to ground. It took me a while to find the short to ground but i fixed it. Heated up the solder, removed the blown capacitors from the ms3 board. Installed new higher voltage capacitors, crossed my fingers and powered it up. It's all good now. I was able to get the basic engine info setup and made a base spark and fuel map based on stock v6 Mustang fuel/spark tables.

    When you have an opportunity can you elaborate on your megasquirt setup?

    -engine harness
    -fuel system control
    -gages

    It's a ms3 kit I assembled, Version 3.0 board with the expansion card and Map daddy 4 bar map sensor. It is a very basic setup. I'm using the stock 00 engine harness and I left the stock 00 ecu in place. I tapped into the coolant sensor, air sensor, tps, crank sensor and various other sensors so the stock ecu reads the info along with the ms3.
    For spark control I cut the wires going to the stock ecu and wired in an EDIS 6 that the ms3 will control. You can technically run the engine with the EDIS by itself, it will only run on the base 10* that the EDIS allows without input from the computer.
    Since the injectors work by being grounded by the ecu I left the power supply alone and cut the injector wires going to the stock ecu and ran them into the ms3 for injector control.
    The gauges will work like stock since they're still being controlled by the Ford ecu. The fuel level, coolant temp, tachometer and odometer will function normally. Oil pressure will not work because I'll be using a actual oil pressure sender instead of the "on/off" oil pressure switch that comes factory.
    One thing I didn't do that I want to try to incorporate is the stock fuel rail pressure sensor. I'm sure there is an adaptor out there that uses AN fittings for the Ford pressure sensor. I'd really like to be able to monitor fuel pressure by data logging instead of using a mechanical gauge.
