    Super charger top removal

    When i was buying a new throttle body i picked up the motorcraft ones on super coupe performance, but i suppose i should head on over to one of the threads specifying how they are supposed to be gaped. Thank you very much for the information, I hope i can take it and use it to protect my sanity.

    Super charger top removal

    Super charger top removal

    Hello everyone, I am trying to remove the inter-cooler piping to get to the spark plugs and motor mounts but i can't get the lock ring to budge on the top pipe. So because i don't' want to fork out $60 for the special wrench to do it with i thought it would be easier to just remove the top with...

    4.6 2V swap dream list

    https://www.sccoa.com/forums/threads/harmonic-balancer-woes.143010/ this is a previous post about the bad pulley. I know for a fact that the new balancer is slotted onto the key I just not sure if it is properly seated all the way.

    4.6 2V swap dream list

    A new ICM did not do the trick, but while I was kneeled over and sobbing into the engine bay I spotted this broken connection, which I'm assuming is a ground strap, and I think might have been ripped apart when I dropped the AC Compressor to get easier access to the passanger side plugs. Could...

    4.6 2V swap dream list

    i'm slowly learning how to read wiring diagrams, i'm more referring to the physical layout of the wires in the vehicle. everything is almost always in an awkward position or tight to reach space. As for the harmonica balancer situation it ended up being a bad under drive pulley that was causing...

    4.6 2V swap dream list

    To be completely honest i do not fully know what i would be getting into for doing a drive train swap, but learning is one of my favorite parts about living. The inspiration for an engine swap mostly came from frustration of trying replace the harmonic dampner, and when i went to test if the...

    4.6 2V swap dream list

    i wouldn't call having to remove the intercooler pipes to do a tune up complex, more of a pain in the ass. I'm more reffering to the wiring side, and how the ignition system works. Not to mention i haven't the fainted clue in what is required to tune the cars to run as well as they can once you...

    4.6 2V swap dream list

    Buying a 2V bird and throwing a blower on that would be the smart thing to do, but i have already put the effort in to rejuvenate the suspension and brakes on this super coupe. Plus the closest 4.6 bird that i can find is 400 miles away and $5000

    4.6 2V swap dream list

    My uncle keeps trying to push my towards the 5.0, but because the car from birth has been a super coupe I would like to keep the super charger. Not to mention the whine it makes never fails to put a smile on my face. So if there is a way to adapt the M90 to a 5.0 i'm all ears.
