Did ya turn da key yet?
Yea, I had my Dad and one of my brothers there all day, (he's in the black hat in one of the engine drop in pics.) It was nice to spend the day with pops! He's got an 01 Mustang that he's souping up for autoX, he's pretty knowledgeable about cars in general, so it's nice to have him around in the garage.Also looked like fun to work with your Dad on the project. My dad's not a car guy, kinda despises car work, actually - but I miss working in the garage with my dad beside me, because he always likes hanging out in the garage and seeing something come to life like that. I envy you for that.
15K of this style Shelby Z were made across 87 and 88. The only years the "Shelby Z" was made I believe.I had an 88 Shelby Z turbo 2 with the intercooler, twelve years ago. Parts are even harder to come by for the turbo 2. Of the small number of Shelby's made; only a small percentage of them were turbo 2 that came off the production line. I had some trouble 12 years ago getting parts. 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.
Awesome news about the progress and you/Dad will get that oil pressure sender figured out.-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.
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.
:highfive:Cant wait! That should be one of the best Daytona's in Michigan when you get done with it!
It's no biggie, just got to pop the one off my other block and put it on this one. I think I'll invite my dad out again once I get proof of concept here and it's time to tune with the enhanced fuel system and computer.Awesome news about the progress and you/Dad will get that oil pressure sender figured out.
It's not, it was f'ing cold last night. :sneaky2:Hope the garage is heated, but thought I missed the key turn.
Get video when you go to fire it off.
