    as far as I recall the way the 3L knock sensor is wired in didn't make a difference. we normally just match colors or something.

    • I really havn't had any long hauls with the new 3L yet until this weekend. Drove it down to Ill. for a mini meet. Was almost 400 miles round trip. The drive down took almost 5 hours of non-stop driving because of traffic around chicago .

      It only moosed once, no CELs, no stuttering, had power all the time, and I did notice that the motor has such high tq now that I could coast in second gear without the car dying and surging. The original motor would have surged and died.

      It makes me wonder if I should upgrade to the SVT lim and 19# injectors from my SE lim and 17# injectors.
      I don't want to get the tune without having done the upgrades yet, if I don't have to.....

      I say the best plan is to run your break in and then swap everything over. go to the dyno and get some numbers with a/f and send it off to NPG so you can get your chip to get everything in order.

        • That's awesome.
          Did you keep the traction control too? I can still see it in there .

          Did you have to bypass the radiator or something with that big tube across the engine bay, or what is that?

            But I got an electric water-pump that are ran on the Boss Hoss Chevy SBC and BB motorcycles on it.

                • My alternator just :censored::censored::censored::censored: the bed. Less than 10k miles on it total. It is only putting about 10v out. I have been looking for the alternator wiring mod so I can do that while changing this alt. out but all the links are dead since the site went down..... Kinda pissed that I have to change it, but good thing I used new bolts and antisieze on the threads for the alt :D. Should be easy.

                        • It cures or helps with the dash & lights dimming when your alternator is still good. Not sure if it works because I don't know anyone that has it done. It must do something .

                            cougar had the problem more then contours but sometime the lights would dim at idle. this was associated with high resistance or something in the sensing circuit for the voltage regulator. That circuit runs from the voltage regulator to the fog lamp fuse in the fuse box under the hood. so what you are doing is letting the voltage regulator sense the voltage at the output of the alternator instead of the fuse box. do note the late model cougars had this circuit built into the alternator. so the wiring mod odes the same thing for the older alternators.

                            • This is a great thread. I have learned quite a bit from it. I am thinking about doing a 3l swap this summer. I have about 145000 miles on my 2.5l right now and i want to eventually have something to keep up with my buddys SRT-4. I fugured the 3l swap would be a good place to start.
