So I have a few loose ends to work on the stang.

First thing's first...get some parts.

Bama SCT chip with 4 settings (3 tunes + stock). Street/street race combo/race

Some Team Z weld in subframe connectors with torque box reinforcements

Some POR15 rubberized undercoating for the connectors and where I will weld them to the subframe.

Pre-coating the connectors

http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_9816_zpsrd5xoqck.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_9816_zpsrd5xoqck.jpg.html)

Still need to weld them in...

The vacuum manifolds that are plastic are known to fail and/or cause vacuum leaks.

So I got this billet piece
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_9895_zps0dycg03d.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_9895_zps0dycg03d.jpg.html)

Installed

Then I picked up some spark plug wire holders to replace the zip ties I used when I installed the motor

http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_9898_zps7tdpnxy9.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_9898_zps7tdpnxy9.jpg.html)

more to come...

So my heater core started leaking last year... I bypassed it but if I expect to roll top down on those cool summer evenings... I need heat for the wife....

Started to remove the dash cluster
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0005_zpspbehmiiu.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0005_zpspbehmiiu.jpg.html)

Center console out

The panel collection starts in the backseat
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0008_zpsbtxwebq8.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0008_zpsbtxwebq8.jpg.html)

It was a PITA to get out.... but damn...
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0009_zpsjryz18ra.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0009_zpsjryz18ra.jpg.html)

While the dash was out of the way, I decided to pull the engine ECM from this hole... its tucked in. (but removed in this pic)
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0010_zpsvj8de5bw.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0010_zpsvj8de5bw.jpg.html)

Here it is...

This was comical... warranty! :lmao:
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0012_zpsvent3z5w.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0012_zpsvent3z5w.jpg.html)

But when I went to install it... these caps/diodes were bent the opposite direction and I had to bend them to get this installed!! HOLY FUCK this was nerve racking on a 23+ year circuit board!!!
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0013_zpskdz7knni.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0013_zpskdz7knni.jpg.html)

Here's the chip installed with the tune dial cord hooked up

http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0014_zpski3zfqua.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0014_zpski3zfqua.jpg.html)

Then they said just slide it back into place... but it wouldn't fit. They never told, nor did anybody show pics of this mod... like always I'm the only person on the planet with these problems... had to unbolt this white plastic cradle out of the hole in the pic above and take a dremel to it. I guess "Custom don't CHIP in either". :rofl:
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0015_zpsku5xvlvp.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0015_zpsku5xvlvp.jpg.html)

Ran out of time Saturday when doing this... so after we got the ECM back in... I put it to stock setting and got the car started again and drove it back into the garage... and look at all those F'in panels!!
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0016_zpsnwvt0d9g.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0016_zpsnwvt0d9g.jpg.html)

I then worked on swapping the cluster light bulbs with dimmable LEDs.

http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0019_zpscvio7vg3.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Vechicles/1991%20Mustang%20LX/2015%20Mods/IMG_0019_zpscvio7vg3.jpg.html)

Which the kit doesn't come with enough to do all the warning lights as well... so I ordered another kit... just goes to show these problems always don't give a shit how many wheels the thing has.

I hope to button it all up next weekend.

Well, I could do that too if I had ta. So long as it was a battery operated stick-on one.

Nice hair scrunchy !
make sure 7 and 8 are separated well , inductive cross fire is a bitch

Yeah the wife always has those and the claw things in the car... it is a convertible... so should be expected.

I would think any of them could cross fire... why do you mention those in particular?

Nice GM!!!

Seen a red mustang just like yours down by Pickney 2 weekends ago, but it was some old dude driving. So unless you got old real quick, it wasn't you... :)

I should have just hired you to do it... it sucked...

New vs Old

Got it back together... still need to hook it up but ran out of time... that's just a replacement of a couple of hoses.

Also so true. Still have a bunch of little things to do and the sub frame connectors...

Finished hooking up the heater core... it's amazing. It works!!

Then I got the timing set to stock 10* for the BAMA chip. Set it to stock so the chip can do it's dilly.

Then I had to find the fuel line test port

Set the fuel psi to 40#

So now it's all set for the chip runs...

And still have to do the subframe connectors and drive shaft safety loop.

Killer, I want to know how this thing runs once you get it squared away.

Let me know if you need any more cigar smoke.

Well all we truly got left is some welding and such under the car. That will require Nasty's help and it won't add any performance.

I hope to drive it Monday to some parties. Get an idea on the chip.

Nate helped me get my drive shaft safety loop installed

So back before turkey day we discovered that even though Team Z said the weld in full length subframe connectors fit ALL 79-93 Foxbody's they were wrong!! Worst part though... they were little to no help afterwards...

If you see here... there are extra gussets that are in conflict with our work

Rear

This extra gusset is in the way over the torque boxes

In the front

This is totally in the way

So finally today we got to work...

Drilled out the rivets on the front and cut the end off

I finished it up today with some more undercoating on these parts.

Front mounts and gussets

But now the driveshaft is hitting a little under full throttle... so have to crawl under it and look around. Either need to shim the trans if it's rubbing the newly installed DSL or get a lowering trans cross member brace if it's rubbing the tunnel. Always something!

well, I'm no mechanic, but isn't all that stuff that was in your way the things that the convertibles have to have to support due to the fact that there is no roof? I know that the new supports will do some of that work but those plates were there for a reason and will the new braces be enough to compensate from the removal and still provide the support they were intended for as well?
Just asking, I don't know.

Actually, we removed the stock gussets, modified them, then welded them back in. They use to be rivited in, but now they are welded in. So stronger one might say?

The sub frame connectors are to keep the mid section between the front & rear sub frames from twisting. Stock the car had 225hp and in current form should be closer to 400hp. So keep the unibody frame straight is important.
