Default SE 5.0 / fire on the dyno

Next major milestone was getting the car on the dyno at SE 5.0
(some of these are copies from others at SE 5.0, thanks for taking these)













wait, why is the car on the lift?!

during the dyno run the oil pressure gauge capillary tube touched the hot exhaust pipe,
melted and spewed oil all over the exhaust pipe which soon caught fire.
Fire extinguishers work

The rear axle is a 3.73 with stock limited slip that I swapped in before going to SE 5.0, 3.73
nicer than 3.91 on the highway. The 3.91 with TrueTrac was shelved for a bit

Did get one dyno sheet. The tune was pretty rough and I had some glaring problems with the MS install
that weren't clear to me then. This was around 15psi iirc Thanks Kenny and Sam for all the help!

Default side exit exhaust Christmas '06

After seeing Doug's side exit on his red 242 build, it looked like some more ground clearance could be had since the 3" pipe on the car hit speed bumps and steep driveways. I bought a couple 90 bends and a 180 in 3" with some straight sections. Dad managed to move some of his restoration projects around the garage to get the 242 in. We did some fitting, made tack welds, more fitting etc. This pipe is still on the car today. We squeezed the end to square it off with the frame rails.

Default WC T5 acquisition and gear swap June '07

WC T5 from an early '90s 4 cylinder mustang and swapped in a 1st gear 2.95:1 gearset. Took a while to get it in the car but finally got it in with a 1 piece driveshaft

Default JVAB H-beams and CP pistons Aug. '07

Started working on a B23F block, at the time the forged crankshaft sounded good. Goal for this was 8:1 compression. If I had to do it over again I would have gone with a B230F or FT block from late model

Default Assembled B23F, turbo oil return

High stress doesn't quite describe the processor of drilling and tapping a diagonal hole into a B23F block for an oil return fitting

Default 530 head on, turbo on - April '08

The new engine sat for a few months until the car could be down during the swap

Default Engine swap May '08

Had the old engine out a while to take off turbo etc. (spare chain around oil fill cap, not used as a lift point)
