Starting to come together... Today I did the following:

machined the fuel rail for the hold down straps
made the fuel rail straps and welded them to the intake flange
welded the AN bungs to the fuel rail
everything seems to fit nicely




pressed the 1/4-20 studs into the valve cover
mounted the rubber stand offs and the coils to the valve cover




Installed the firewall braces
Mounted the boost gauge bulkhead fitting to the firewall plate.




Im really getting down to just some final details.

looks great, question where do you get the firewall connectors?

I generally "acquire" them. However, you can get them from Digikey, Mouser etc. They are Tyco (formerly AMP) circular plastic connectors (CPC).

Almost finished the rack "depowering".

Its really pretty simple. I basically followed these instrucitons: http://www.flyinmiata.com/tech/depower.php?x=1

I didnt take step by step pics, so Ill explain quickly.

1. Remove C clip from the column side of the rack (this will allow the pinion shaft to be removed later)

2. Remove the large lock nut (I had to beat it loose with a brass drift), the adjustment nut, spring and support yoke,

3. Remove the small cover on the bottom of the rack, exposing the nut that holds the pinion shaft in. Then tap the pinion shaft, bearing, seal etc, out the top side of the rack, where the C clip was removed in step 1.

This shows the bottom cover and nut removed, exposing the threads on the bottom of the pinion shaft


Here are all the pieces that should now be out
Row 1: bottom cover, pinon nut, top pinion bearing, seals C clip
Row 2: lock nut, adjustment nut, spring, (yoke not shown)
Row 3: pinion shaft


4. Loosen the large nut at the end of the rack where the pressure ports are. This may vary depending on the exact rack design. (you'll also need to remove the boot by cutting the clamps etc.)



5. Slide off the end rack cover exposing the shaft and the pressure seal and guide (DO NOT REMOVE THE GUIDE BUSHING).



6. Remove the bolt that holds the pressure seal in place, then tap the seal off the end of the shaft.

7. Clean up the old shaft, pinion etc, regrease and reassemble

8. Plug the unused ports however you like. I welded up the holes in the tube nuts that I pulled from the pressure lines.

Rack cleaned up.


Pressure port nuts welded up and everything painted (I have yet to decide how to plug the feed and return lines to the pump).


Tonight Im hoping to get it greased up and reassembled. Ill add the rest of the pics then.

Finished assembing the modified rack.

Removed the power steering rack, pump, lines, cooler etc.

Mounted the idler pulley (Dayco p/n 89028) by drilling out the middle ps pump mount hole. I still need to machine up a real spacer and get a longer bolt, but otherwise thats done. The tensioner ended up in almost the exact right spot, according to the pointer and marker on the two halves.







Installed the new rack, completly torqued etc.




I weighed everything quickly and it looks like the swap removed about 13-15lbs, not bad.

Dan

EDIT: Gallery fixed!

Right. Manual steering , and manual brakes.

The factory strut brace wouldnt fit with the new intake, so I came up with a new one.

I had the brackets laser cut, and bent, and then I welded them up and drilled the shock tower mounting holes. The brace itself is 4130 with 1/2" rod ends.

The new brace will allow me to enlarge the hole in the top of the shock tower so I can get the springs out easier for doing bump steer measurements etc. I'll prob get that cut out wed night.

Lots of little things done tonight.

-cut shock tower holes out to the size of the hole in the new brace (to allow for more adjustment, and damn it looks way better)

-removed stupid factory fender / firewall braces

- swapped +/- wires on coils (accidentally had these backwards, thanks Brian)

-made a blockoff plate for old f/w connector holes on pass side

-rest of the hardware installed on new f/w connectors

-last lined clamp installed on the return fuel line

-replaced washers on camber plates and put bolts in outer holes (so they arent directly adjacent to one another)

-primed and painted the bar part of the strut brace ( brackets tomorrow nite)

I always hated the way the stock mustang throttle cable attached to the TB, and the way I have it mounted now it made no sense to wrap it way down, then way back up so I came up with my own pulley assembly.

I sourced a pulley for $6 from McMaster, and some cable ends and an adjuster from Flanders. It was quite simple to do. I just had to drill a few holes in the pulley: one for the cable barrel end and two to mount it to the original TB cable flange.

Shortened the stock cavy cable by about two feet and soldered the new barrel end on. This involves flaring the end of the cable after you push it through the barrel. The solder basically just keeps the steel part of the cable from pulling through as it cant squeeze small enough.

Made a simple steel bracket to hold the adjuster?. pretty simple really. I still need to add a return spring , but I have a plan for that, shouldnt take more than a few mins.







Painted the strut bar brackets and installed them along with the bar that I painted a few nights ago.





Installed the valve cover with new hex head hardware. I realy dont like using hex heads, but with the coil mount I couldnt access the socket cap screws to remove the cover (and remvoing the coil mount from the valve cover is a pain). Its not ideal but I can probably remove the cover in two mins.



I pretty much finished everything I had planned. I wanted to mount the MS and ground the main engine harness but there just wasnt time.

That does look way better than stock. I may have to do that to mine as well

What tool did you use to cut the shock tower??

I taped the whole bay up with some masking paper, only exposing the towers (like surgery). Then cut the holes with this

HUGE progress tonight. I have the engine bay almost all buttoned up.

I think this is all thats left to do in the bay:

Torque intake mani to head
Adjust throttle cable
Terminate harness for crank position sensor and boost control solenoid
Nut / bolt / hose check
Fluids

I really think thats about it.

I still need to finish up some wiring inside but I should be ready to start this thing next weekend!
