92 LX On 3 Install Help

Ok guys here goes. Finally starting my ON 3 build. Started Saturday for a few hours and here's where I'm at. Removed the x pipe and mufflers, removed the longtubes...that was fun, removed the Nitrous kit, removed the alternator, relocated the clutch cable, mocked the drivers side header, and that is where I'm at.

Here's what I need to know.

What are you guys doing with the oil filter? Bought a trans dapt relocation kit and don't think it's gonna work out.

What plugs are you running and what gap?

Are you using any kind of oil catch for the valve covers??

Anybody have any pics of the altenator bracket installed? Any other advise would be helpful. Thanks.

Use a oil filter off a 94/95 cobra so u don't have to worry bout relocation... I'm running autolite plugs gapped at .025

Buy the Ford Motorsport 90 degree adaptor. You can use the factory FL1A filter and the adaptor keeps it way away from the header. I use autolite 104's gapped at about .035 . Definatly invest in a catch can breater setup, it will save the headache of oil sprayed everywhere. That ALT bracket is a bitch and the diagram in the instructions is garbage, just tinker with the bracket and spacers and you will figure it out. One of the bracket bolts takes place of one of the water pump bolts, so keep that in mind while trying to mock it up

did you get the instruction cd? It will have the length for spacers/bolts to install the alt. kit. Run the fl-910 oil filter, it is smaller than stock but if you wanted to run the full size filter, we do have a remote relocation kit available to do that. If you have an ignition box (6a) you should be ok at that .035 gap, I know my car on 9-10psi was starting to blow out on the stock ignition. I went down to .030~ after it was off the dyno and did perfect on the stock ignition

Dont run the 910 filter. Its way too small for the amount of things you need to be filtering, its designed for a 4 cylinder. The 90 adapter is the way to go, you dont have to worry about routing oil lines and heat wrapping them ect..

I ran the 910 on initial startup, but its still way too close to the header for comfort. It will work but not the best way IMO

910 is the 94/95 cobra filter and they use oil coolers so it will filter plenty

didnt know that, the 94 cobra I used on the sn 5.0 mock up had a larger filter than the 910. I had to swap it to the 910 to get started on the kit

The 94/95 Cobras use the FL300 filter and is still substantially bigger the the 910 filter. The 910 is used on 2.0 and 2.3 focus/mariner and escape engines.

Hey Chad, I didn't get the CD or any pictures (if you send them) on how to install this kit. I bought the kit off of another member here because he had all the hot parts already coated and threw in a couple extras. He just bought the kit back in March or May. I did get the alternator bracket figured out tho by looking at some pics on here, that helped. Do you guys have any problems with the rubber oil drain coming off the turbo? Just wondering because I know it gets hot by the header and exhaust housing If so are you wrapping them??

Hey man, thanks for the feedback. Got the alternator installed today. I think I am going to invest in the 90. I was questioning the size of that filter also, I looked it up and it was referenced to 2.3l, 2.0l, and I think a 4.6, made me a little leary. Also are the 104s 2 steps colder than stock? Thanks for the help!
