Re: Mach ! Resurrection

Ok
More progress, so you can see that the relay's are different from Cobra to Mach, from the original connector I removed the pins out of the factory two plug and lucky me I had other harness that would match up to the cobra relay harness, pins for the fan plugged in factory like.

The fan power wires are the same colour code, now for the circ pump, it has 4 wires, white from the power distribution via the sliver connector, I drilled and added the wire to the other side of the terminal block and routed though the loom to the relay which power supply, Orange with yellow tracer is power to the circ pump, red is 12 volt ignition power which I tapped into the 12 V that supplies the maf, white with red tracer is suppose to go to the PCM pin 83 as the cobra computer monitors it, by way of grounding it no need to hook up as the mach would know as its not programmed for it. I just wired it into the harness on a ground circuit and when ignition is turn on the pump will run, gonna make a toggle switch so when at the track I can jump it in the pits.

The IAT is also not used in the Maf location so I used the Cobra Map/IAT2 sensor located in the manifold and made up my own wiring harness using ford connectors and even used the exact colour codes grey/ red and grey wiring, many may ask why, well when adding in a PD blower timing is controlled by IAT and if it see the incoming air which is a lot cooler it can add to much, this way it only see it after the cooler in the manifold which is the one you want.

Only thing I don't like is the IAC hose, gonna try and make that look neater and have it go around the other way and under the TB..
also gonna hook up the stock reservoir bottle for the inner cooler temporarily, car has to go to the Body shop for the front and rear bumpers to be painted, also needs alignment,once that's done I can put it up on the hoist and run the coolant hoses under the car to the rear PNR tank in the trunk.
with all the wiring in play I started to mount the panels back on, this is far as I got, family function stopped any further assembly...lol

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

Its alive...…

Had to get a start up base file from my buddy Lidio and upload it into the X cal 3 with the Pats turned off for now as I only received one key for the car, plus the PCM isn't the original as I switch the car to Auto, I will get another key and program them to the car later with the IDS.

Started up first crank....Who Hoo... ran pretty good for a start up file, this will get me going for now...next steps.. attach the front clip and get it to the alignment shop and then to the body shop for the bumpers to be painted.

I tried to upload the video but it wouldn't take......sorry guys

one more issue to deal with, when I came into the garage the cluster had dash lines where the OD was and the ABS and Service engine light was on...Hmm after a little investigating found the abs module was back feeding and causing the issue, has a spare ABS module and just quickly plugged her in and verify all was good, I will switch out the unit and bleed the brakes which should only take a couple of hours.

I'll update with more pics from the alignment and body shop....

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

One of the best feelings in the world is hitting the key on a new build and having it fire right up.

Well little more progress... engine bay wiring and ABS module all done...

both fenders are on.... went to adjust the hood striker to align... ran into a slight snag.. the shaker liner rests on the crusher inlet not allowing the hood to close all the way.....
options are to remove and just mount the shaker to the underside of the hood as many have done.....
Nah I like things the hard way.....lol
gonna drop the K-member down as much as 1/2 inch if need be to clear and allow hood closure...also this will help with the shaker mounting too....

looks like a damned sewer pipe in there feeding that blower!

Is it hard to get the elbow off the blower to get to the spark plugs?

Sewer pipe.....lol it's 5 inch inside diameter, nah it's pretty easy just loosen the hose to the pipe and slide it down and the plastic one to the TB comes off..really like 2 min and you can access the plugs with a extension and flex...looks harder than it is.

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

Looks good. Glad everything fit behind the bumper without modification. Really amazing what the chin spoiler does for the front end too. Hope your prob is just connections or something simple.

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

Well after several hours of diagnosis..... all the wring checks out, even ran a scanner on and determined the speed sensor is actually working but way off, in second gear at 4500 RPM the speedo reads maybe 15 MPH...this all lead back to the tune file.... SCT actually confirmed it...just waiting for a new start up file and go from there...

I think the wife is getting a little jealous and I'm spending more time in the garage....lol

Great to watch the build. Car is coming along real nice. As others have said please keep posting. Between us seeing the build and you being able to refer back on what you've done its pretty cool.
I started a Face Book group for friends and family for a car my sons & I were building for Drag Week this year. It was so the family could see what we were doing, also so we could look back and reference the posts to see our progress.

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

Well my dent doctor buddy Matt got 90 % of the dings out, man I can't say enough about this field of work these guys can do miracles!
toughest one was the one under the gas cap where the body panel meets the bumper cover, he did his best but because of the location, heck I can live with that, I Installed the Black Gas cap and must say I think it looks great!
