splitport swap aftermath
I recently swapped out my old 3.8L V6 with a 2004 Mustang 3.9L V6. It was not as problem free as some expect. It went in though, and is running pretty well. I still have the CEL on, but I think it has something to do with the O2 sensors.
So here what's left:
1 - temperature guage.
this intake doesn't have a location for the temp gauge like my buddies 02 does.(that would have been too easy). And I am trying to find an alternative for the gauge. We used the temp gauge n the drivers side cylinder head for the computer but have nothing for the gauge.
Any ideas on how I can get a decent temp gauge w/o having to pull it and tap it?
2 - cruise control cable. Has anyoone come up with a solution for the different cable ends. I have a zip tie on it now, and it owrks, but who wants to take their car in for a dyno tune with a zip tie on anything? I talked to the local Ford dealership about ordering the one for the mustang but don'tif it will fit the other end or even reach for that matter.
3 - I can't get a cai tube to make the angle I need to avoid the wall of the engine bay. this may have something to do with the fule lines running above the AC lines instead of under. Can anyone confirm? or suggest a cai that will make the bend w/o peicing together a $60 piece of crap from the zone?
I will post more issues as they arrive. I really wish I had i-net access when I was redoing the fuel rail and trying to figure out why the balanced flexplate from the 96' was throwing off the internally balanced 2004 engine. As always thanks in advance for the input.
