Time to start part 2 of my JYTT stock longblock project. Here's part 1, in case anyone missed it, or if anyone cares.
Cliff notes- I have an 88 GT vert. I got a low mileage stock longblock and put all new gaskets in it, shaved the engine bay, and am going Megasquirt to control it all. I have 2 T3's from Thunderbird TC's, both freshly rebuilt, (Had to buy a new CHRA for one since my last post) I drove it once and manged to absolutely MANGLE both head gaskets because I got into it a lil too much.
I built an addition on my house this summer and fall/winter- myself- nights n weekends so I haven't had a chance to work on my Stang since.
Things are winding down with the addition and frankly I miss working on it so it's time to start again.
My plan is to update the Megasquirt N Spark firmware update and rewire the stock TFI to be managed by Megasquirt so I can control spark tables too. While I'm at it I'm modifying my stock 88 GT seat rails to accept 91 CRX seats. I know, it sounds dumb, but check out the pics. They're going to look good in the car. These seats were designed by Recaro for Honda. They're the closest thing you're going to get to a racing-type street seat without going directly to recaro (or sparco, etc) Don't prejudge- check em out.
Not to mention the local u pull it had them for $20 a bucket with tracks. haha
Thoughts? Of course, there are no tracks on them at the moment- they'll sit higher when I get the tracks welded on.
More updates to come if anyone cares.
