Also cleaned up my floor pans, added sound deadening, painted interior pieces, and installed the rear seat.
The 2017 Mustang GT I bought at auction as a donor for the drivetrain had a 8 qt. oil pan already.I'll have to check with my newly purchased 10 year 100,000 mile warranty to see it that mod is OK? I guess thats why the oil pan went from 6 to 8 quarts between 2020 and 2021.
You can borrow mine....just come over saturday and help me get my junk running!but I don’t have a thermometer.

Drive it over and we can do yours. I still haven't ordered seals and gaskets for mine.Windshield installation party?
Got my AC condenser installed and my front end on except the hood. Working on a way to keep heat off of the wiring harness and brake lines. It’s pretty tight. Ordered some sleeving and hopefully it works so I don’t have to wrap my headers. I also heard getting them ceramic coated would help? Anybody know if that’s true? View attachment 874537

Bled my brakes alone because I heated my fluid enough for it to apply my brakes automatically while I let it idle for 30 minutes.

Threw my hood on. Much adjustment is still needed.

Heat shield on wiring and brake lines. We will see if things need moved or header wrap/coatings.

Too bad they dont make windshield rubber thats wide enough that you don't have to use trim.Windshield is in. Followed the 10 year old mtf videos that look like they’re 20 years old. Used the same 2 products. No fun but not too bad. 1.5 hrs including going to buy a replacement caulk gun. View attachment 876411
I find 426whp respectable considering Ford rates the Gen3 at 460. I’m sure with the swap you are tad more than 460 at the flywheel to garnish 426 at the wheels. I too am interested if you purchased an OBD interface/tuner and brand/Dyno cost. Also, what rpm were your numbers from? I’ve spoken to LUND racing but haven’t committed just yet.View attachment 882552
Dyno day was today. All dyno’s are different so take it for what it’s worth. 426whp 359tq.
I don’t think it’s going to pass sound at the autcross track though. They have a 96db limit.Wow! You found a Ford friendly place with a dyno! That would never happen around here. The car looks and sounds awesome!
You will be fine at local events, national events are a &itch though!I don’t think it’s going to pass sound at the autcross track though. They have a 96db limit.
They have sounds tests before you run and on course here.You will be fine at local events, national events are a &itch though!
