  • Well here we are Mar 16th and I finally got word that the cams are finally at Jetstream Motorsports! However the guy is out of the office tomorrow and will get back with me ASAP with final pricing and shipping information.

    Now onto an over summary of the status of things:

    Wire harnesses... I am building my own engine harnesses and starting from scratch. I've spoken with several suppliers to source both the correct connectors as well as the correct colored wiring to match everything on the OEM harnesses from Ford. A number of companies are reviewing my power point presentations, which have detailed pictures of each connector and what they connect too. Many of these companies already offer the pigtails for these connectors so there should not be any problems with them sourcing me the parts. Once company contacted me just today and was asking me for a wiring schematic as they would like to look into just building the harness for me.

    Suspension upgrades - with PRT's developments on the suspension components I may not look at recreating the wheel. I'm working with Josh on timing to see when his products will be available for purchase. The rear strut bar is coming along, but I need to fill my brother's tank with shielding gas. I gave him some money on Sunday and he planned on having it filled this week. So I should have all the parts needed to complete my proto builds this weekend. Once the RSTB's are finished I'm going to start working on the traction bars.

    CF parts - Weather is warming up, which should hopefully allow me to start finishing up what I started last fall. Keep an eye out for that.

    Paint Prep - Again with the weather turning around I should be able start working on this. Goal would be to have the car in primer by mid April.

    Engine - Everything is here minus cams. However I will not start final assembly until the car is painted.
    -Mike

          Haha... while I know he has reduced his harness a lot... I doubt he has it down to anything near 10 wires... you need more then that just to run the injectors

          Just off the top of my head...

          MAF: 4 wires
          IAC: 2
          IAT: 2
          Knock Sensor: 2
          cam sensor: 2 (really 3 if you count the shielding wire that wraps around the wires)
          crank sensor: 2 (really 3 if you count the shielding wire that wraps around the wires)
          power steering pressure switch: 2
          injectors: 12 (total)
          coil pack: 4
          coil pack capacitor: 1
          water temp: 1
          oil pressure switch: 1
          upper HEGO: 8 (total)
          fans: 4 (total)
          A/C clutch (if installed, will be on mine): 2
          Grand total (of just what I thought of): 49

          stuff most likely removed
          egr vent solenoid: 2
          DPFE: 4
          lower HEGO: 4


          I plan to perform a wire tuck on it anyway so all will look nice and pretty anyway ;)

          • I dont even want to see the quotes you get for the wiring work

            I'm not sure if its worthwhile to source components new rather than repurpose an existing harness (especially if the plugs are coming pigtailed, your creating a butt ton of soldering). Anyways, I'm happy to help if you need anything in that dept.

              Haven't gotten a quote yet. However I'm trying to order the separate connectors with the locks, seals, and pins/sockets. If anything else I may just order the pins/sockets and reuse the locks, connectors, and seals. My goal would not to have a single butt end splice connection in the harness.

              • What's wrong with your old harness? That seems like a lot of work when the old harness would work perfectly fine. I know your trying to make everything perfect but that seems like a lot of work for no gain.

                      As far as the original harness... yes I could use it, but I've already repaired it twice, and it's a major PITA to take it off and put it back on. So I'd rather just build a brand new harness with parts that are reliable and not have to worry about it.

                      Really? That would be interesting to see. However Ford parts would be most likely 10 times more expensive then if you could buy directly from the source. I know a lot of the connectors are actually Amp Econoseal J series connectors. But there are a few HEGO, ECM, and a few harness connection points that use Ford proprietary connectors. However I've thought about just replacing the harness connections with a standardized connector since there isn't a mating part that requires it.
