Little more progress tonight.

1-6-2015 -

Removed radiator and fan to give more access to front of engine.
Removed intake as one unit (left top still attached).
Removed entire engine harness so it was out of my way.

Removed knock sensor bosses and ground them smooth my angle grinder.
Mocked up the lower intake and supercharger.

Gonna look pretty good!


Ready to remove intake -



This plastic connection was holding the wiring harness in place and keeping the intake from moving forward!



Intake on the ground!



About to remove knock sensors to allow more room to clear the supercharger manifold.








Cherry on top!

Yes. Long term plans will include a built engine and a VMP TVS upgraded blower, but that's down the road....

Not hard at all. I use the VVME brand in 35 watt in the 8,000K flavor. I run those in all my vehicles in the bi-xenon style with the separate 30 amp relay option.
Never had any issues. See great at night. Lights are bright white with just a hint of blue.

Project update - 1/9/2015 -

Removed balancer, front cover, both valve covers, oil cooler, power steering, etc.
Mocked up my head-cooling mod and sat the lower intake and supercharger back on it for now.

Gotta remove the EGR tube from my long tube headers. Got a plug to fit onto the header and I'll keep the EGR off for good.

Ha! That is something I plan to do later on when I build the shortblock.

RJ's can take care of your Cobra. They do great work.


Small update on my car. Been out of town the last few days but got some small progress tonight.

Pictures of head cooling mod.



Here's some pics as requested of the cooling mod installed.

Few small updates.

- Got a few parts at the powder-coaters, so cannot reassemble engine yet.

- Got the Division-X fuel hat and Walbro GSS342 fuel pumps mounted and wired into my 2003 cobra fuel tank with the correct cobra fuel-level sensor.

- Remade my water cooling head-cross over line. The one that came with my kit was poorly made with push-lock fittings and starlite hose. Not good.
Now it's stainless line with correct fittings. I decided to use a 45* fitting on one side to give a little more clearance and prevent the hose from being in such a hard U-shape.

- Had Melvin @ Fastlane Motorsports help me remove the existing upper pulley and hub and replace with a new Metco hub & pulley.

Anyway here's some pics.

Couple of updates.

Got the powder coating completed on a few items.
Started putting it back together.

Small issue, I'm missing the dowel pins to center the supercharger. Got some coming in this week, but for now slapped the charger on top for mock up.

Also pulled out the Mach 1 gas tank and installed the 03 cobra tank with my Division-X return style fuel system.

Elite custom coating in Raleigh.

Total cost was $350.00 for all the parts pictured.

Thanks guys for the compliments. I'm not done yet and got a few more detail oriented things to do.
Just gotta have some free time to work on it again next weekend.

I purchased a set of the stainless engine fasteners from Proweld https://www.proweldperformanceparts.com/id172.html

I have installed them onto the valve covers, coil covers and the lower intake manifold. Got some to mount the supercharger onto the lower intake.
I'm debating on a set of the ones for the pulley bridge.

Not sure if I'm going to powdercoat the coil covers gloss black with Torch red lettering, or I might just polish them out.
Undecided at the moment.

I think a little chrome/polish with the red and black will mix well with the entire paint scheme of the car (red/black).

I guess I'll have to bolt it all up and decide then.

Ryan

It's from MMR.


Here's a few progress pics.
Finished the main accessory setup and got the belt installed.
Mounted the pulley bridge and my Metco idlers.
Started working on extending the alternator wiring from top mount to side mount.
Installed water tubing, supercharger intercooler adapter and hoses.

Got to get the alternator installed, power steering lines hooked up, and oil fiter adapter reinstalled.

Getting there slowly, but having fun doing it.

Small project update.

Got the alternator harness modified with the Cobra style connector.
I took my wires and soldered on the connector. I did not have to lengthen any wires at all. As a matter of fact, my factory wires are a little long!
It helps that I removed them from the factory harness bundle!

Mounted the alternator and brackets.

My Canton power steering reservoir was necessary (one of the casualties of my install, the factory one had a crack on the lower fitting).








Canton power steering reservoir installed.
Gates green stripe belt arrived and fit like a glove.
Radiator and fan installed.
All radiator/thermostat hoses arrived and installed.
New Reische 170* thermostat installed.

Little things left to do -

1. Wire up IAT2.
2. Address power steering line connection at bottom of pump. Appears to be leaking.
3. Wire up intercooler pump.
4. Figure out needed vacuum lines and install.
5. Complete fuel line run to engine and tighten down regulator.
6. Install throttle and cruise cables.
7. Add coolant and burp system for intercooler.
8. Add coolant and burp system for radiator.
9. Get startup tune and load before starting engine.
10. Take off intercooler brackets and paint black.
11. Cap off EGR fitting on header.
12. Install motor mount nut and tighten.
13. Make up a breather system for both valve covers.
