  1. I am installing the 92 Mustang column in MkIII roadster. Does someone have a diagram to translate the electrical connections on the back of the staulk? My wiring harness (American Autowire Power Plus 12) has an 8 wire plug for the turn signal switch. But I have not been able to find corresponding info for the Mustang mechanism.

Running and Driving: Tuning is Working!

by skullandbones on 04-04-2016 at 03:23 AM
I'm pleased to say I got my new computer system installed and started the engine with the new PCM and base tune that was sent with the kit. I was equally surprised to hear the engine come alive this time as I was when it started immediately on the first start of the EEC-IV setup years ago. As reported in the instructions the engine does not run very well at first. It requires some adjustments of some of the cells in the VE fuel table. There is only one of these with an option to put another

Starting the Computer Install

by skullandbones on 01-09-2016 at 03:37 PM
I've been reading like mad to get a head start on the computer installation for the tunable ECU that I got. Most of it is pretty simple mechanically but there are many small steps and every one can determine success or failure. As an example, the setup of the vehicle has to be configured in the ECU with short jumpers to let the computer know it's a V8, stock ignition, running BAP or not. Thankfully, mine is a simple setup. I plan on going with DIS later but that will be configured then. Another

One Step Closer.

by skullandbones on 11-13-2015 at 12:58 AM
I purchased the AEM wide band last month which is supposed to be the most popular one he has seen with his clients according to the engineer/owner of the Stinger PiMP. But I really pulled the trigger today when I bought the PiMP computer for my 5.0. It's based on Megasquirt technology but the thing that made it most attractive to me was the "plug and play" feature. It actually plugs into the EEC-IV harness connector of my engine harness. There is a vacuum hose that attaches to the

Coming To A Crossroad: More HP and Change in Configuration

by skullandbones on 09-24-2015 at 01:36 AM
Building and then driving and maintaining one of these cars is not the same for sure. If I had built this roadster with the idea of showing it, I probably would not drive it very much so at least I got that right as driving has been much more fun than building for me. I'm constantly thinking about how far to go with the hp and upgrades in the engine that will take me to where I want to keep it for a while. Driving it also weighs on that as well. I don't want to leave it down for more than a

Aluminum 302 Heads: Pouring and Micing the Exhaust Runners

by skullandbones on 03-18-2015 at 12:42 AM
received my buret from Amazon today so I did some preliminary measurements on the exhaust runners. I didn't expect to get exactly 70 cc for the volume as the valves are not installed. However, I did have a goal of getting a good baseline measurement for comparison of the like runners on each head. So I "poured" the runners after blocking off the ports and guides. I was pleasantly surprised to find a consistency of within one cc (84 to 85). There is a error factor of +/- 1 cc (had
