Unfortunately my $600 project car cost me well over $3000 and I had to part ways. Best of luck with it. I know you will love the car, like I did mine. Side note, my son's middle name is Shelby.
15K of this style Shelby Z were made across 87 and 88. The only years the "Shelby Z" was made I believe.
well not as much done this weekend as I hoped. The wife got go out with friends on Saturday, which she doesn't get to do often, so I hung out with the kiddies instead of working on the car. Did accomplish the following today:
-Plumbed and mounted the vac block, hooked up most of the vac lines (all new.)
-I'm happy to report that I have figured out where every bloody connector on the engine harness goes, and re-wrapped about 80% of it. Still have to clean up the alternator harness and do some more work on the wires around the SMEC.
Few annoying changes from 87 to 88 that I still need to deal with:
-Air temp plug is different (hoping I can just pop one off of one of my three other intakes)
-Speedo senor plug is different. (that's just damn annoying. Gonna be a splice unless I can take a part the connectors. I hate splicing stuff!!)
I didn't realize it before but my 89 CB has a different oil pressure sender... Opps. so fortunately I have the right one on of my other blocks... I fear I may have sent flag terminal part of the sensor on the original one to the crusher.
This week I should have plenty of time to drop the column in and button up the dash wiring... and after the above stuff is done
it's time to see if this thing works.
