Alrighty as promised here is the Monday update. Got the computer back from HP tuners today and back in the car. I updated/installed the relevant software on my old trusty laptop and fired up the car. Oh my gosh it was in dummy run rich mode and skunked out my garage and house. Even after pulling outside the garage the wife was not happy. She hates exhaust smell and our garage attaches to our kitchen where she was making dinner. If you gotta sleep on the couch every once in a while to go fast its worth it
Anyhow it had check engine lights all sorts of faults flashing and it would barely idle. So I shut it off, cleared the codes with the HPtuners software and started it up again. This time it was fine purring like a kitten. All the gauges in HPtuners worked and no errors upon connect. I havent flashed the e85 tune yet will do that at the end.
Then I pulled into the big end of the garage to prepare for the big tear down. First I popped the trunk and put in the JMS BAP.
All in all it was easy.
After removing the carpeting in the trunk, plugged in the pigtails inline to the dual fuel pump modules.
Then snaked the Throttle Position Sensor cable up to the front through the back seat driver side down the channels by the seat.
Note make sure you don't run the wire anywhere it might get pinched like in the seat hinge or by the E-Brake.
Pigtail for TPS installed. You have to remove your carpet/shield and unsnap the floor light. Man it sucks being old with a bad back laying under the pedals of a car twisted in a weird position. Seem to remember it being easier in my youth
Yes i got stuck and needed a breather to get out.
So looking at the fuses I need to upgrade F40 and F41 to 40A. Here is the first problem with this kit.
F40 and F41 are square fuses not blade that are included with the kit, which is Mustang based I think. So need to go get some 40A squares. So I am 99% done with the BAP and will mount it to the fuse box lid once I get the right fuses tomorrow.
Had a little more time before I tapped out and decided to remove a few easy things prepping for tomorrow. Pulled off the coil/injector covers, then took out the whole airbox and funky emissions tube/valve. I thought about just removing the boot and leaving the box in but its one bolt to pull the whole thing and looks like it gives me more room.
Now the next part I am, I think going to first swap injectors to the 1300#, then unbolt/raise the SC and pull the snout. That should take up my evening tomorrow. Once thats all back together with the 2.72 upper it's time for lower end.
Heading down underneath to pin the crank and install the ATI 10% OD balancer. Oh and the 180 TStat, almost forgot that one.
If things go well I just might get this thing to the last T&T of the year this Sunday at National Trail? If not I will have a long winter of anticipation.
