    moving towards getting this to crank and make some noise....

    Wiring is about 80% done... I am going to get it running with all the stock switches first then wire up the cyclic stick... Engine went in today for the FINAL time... while I was at it I went ahead and recycled the 2015 clutch tubing..fit nice. All I had to do is re-bend one line and it all worked out... I can go ahead and put brake fluid and clutch fluid in tomorrow. The Coyote Harness is 100% laid into the Ron Francis Harness... will work the seat heaters tomorrow as well as start working the custom driveshaft I need built. Looks pretty cool.

    I had a couple people ask me about the MT82 tranny and how far it hangs below... so here are some more shots..

    From the front... oil pan JUST below the frame:



    from the side... the angle makes it worse than it is.... and now I am noticing some surface corrosion that needs to be taken of ...

    getting ready to mount the intercoolers!

    Eric,

    How hard is it going to be to get to that fuel pressure regulator later on?

    Thanks for posting the pics because I was really interested in seeing how far, if any, the driveline protruded below the frame.

    If I had 1/2 of your skills the GoDadGo MK-4 would be running.

    This car is really going to be something special!

    Didn't get as much done today... had a few visitors and some friends came over.... so got the intercooler mounts made... one intercooler color matched to the car color... looks pretty good... had planned on measuring up the driveshaft, but that is a next weekend thing I suppose. anyway....

    Hi Erik, really enjoying your build process and the pictures. I will be ordering one in April so really looking forward to building it. I am new to the site and no one has built a Coupe down here in New Zealand. I have seen your order to Factory Five but it would be really interested if you or anyone on the thread had a full list of all the items that i would need to buy to build the car??? Cheers Graeme.

    Erik,

    Did you mount the engine lower for any reason? Or is that where it just sits? The reason why I ask is that the oil pan being even that little bit below the frame would be an automatic fail at NJ title inspection.

    Erik, did you shim up the motor mounts? I believe the kit comes with shims you put in the motor mounts

    With that powerplant it should be the most powerful coupe to date. Any plan to do a top speed run or a standing mile run with it?
    With your final drive ratio what speed would redline be IF the COD doesn't win the battle?
    Love watching the build.

    Erik,
    Another Huntsville guy here (Madison actually). Would love to come over and see the build sometime. I'm currently converting a 96 Mustang to Coyote power but these builds are very interesting. If I can convince the wife maybe this will be next.

    Was just waiting for the Roaster mindset to evaporate,

    Raise your right hand and say after me,

    "I (State your name), do swear/affirm, that upon acceptance of this "Revered Coupe Jacket", will willingly subject myself to all manner of frustration and abrasion that my FFR Type 65 will provide. I further pledge that any and all fellow Coupe builders will have free reign in using the cash available in my wallet as they see fit to improve my build plan. I will not look down upon our fellow Roadster builders, but rather take pity on those not talented enough to build a race car with a roof, So Help Me God!"



    It is my pleasure to present you with the "Revered Coupe Jacket", Here's your sign!!

    Hank, is that my jacket? If so I'm honored. And a bit scared.

    Thanks Erik, I'll give you a call. I don't do the just drop by think. Drives the wife nuts when people do that.
