I provided the TB flange and IAC valve flange from an aftermarket C&L ford upper plenum from a 99-04 gt. Then I gave him my upper ACIS plenum and said " Make it work" lol.

I've known this guy for years, he is one of the best fabricators in the US and he's down to earth and a huge car guy. He's currently making performance exhausts, intercoolers and air intakes for the Chevy Sonic and his personal EVO was featured in a magazine recently.

His website is http://www.Mpfab.com

Thanks, Doug

Just a quick update....

Thanks to Paul (Rainmaker9238) I've got a forged rotating assembly, aluminum flywheel and clear timing cover among a few other misc items to go with all of my other parts. :pepper:


He was having some concerns about some noises coming from the bottom end when it was cold so I decided to tear it apart, clean, vat and check everything.

Upon further inspection everything checked out great :2thumbsup: All of the bearing clearances were .015-.018, they all looked good and were in brand new shape. The pistons are in good shape too. Point being, I think the noise he was hearing is just a normal piston slap from the clearances required for forged pistons machined into the bores.

Then I started looking at it and found the crank had been turned 10/10, or 25/25 for you metric guys. My forged crank I was going to use had just been turned the same, so I had to install it. I just couldn't have a forged crank laying here when I have it torn down this far, also for the horsepower numbers I'm shooting for its just a safe decision.





I installed the crankshaft and started to reinstall the pistons when I broke the second compression ring when using the ring compressor, it slide out and hit the top of the block and just chipped off. Damn cast ring!! So just trying to keep momentum going I grabbed another set from another piston and started putting it on the piston. I put the same ring in the ring expander to install it on the piston and it just broke in half :blah: I just stopped.

Next I went to drill the top of the block for the ARP head studs, to drill it 10mm I needed a 11/32 drill bit, of course all I could find was a 5/16 or a 3/8 both one above and below what I needed. I tried drilling it 5/16 but I couldn't get the tap to bite when I tried starting it.




Needless to say I ordered a complete set of new rings for it and a Wiseco 74.5mm tappered ring sleeve. Hopefully this will prevent any damage to the new ring set. I've also bought a 11/32 drill bit and hope to get back on it tomorrow to do some other stuff while I'm waiting on the rings to arrive.

I also got a new polished 70mm Ford mustang 99-04 throttle body for my intake setup.



Thanks! Doug

My lovely wife gave me the whole day to work on my Seo so I took advantage of it! Basically giving it a bath, cleaning up the inside(again), and most important installing my new Shift boot I got from Paul.

For the engine put a few more coats of paint on it. I drained the transmission fluid and removed the metal pan on the side of it. Clean the case and painted it all.

I also lifted it up on the rack and installed my Whiteline adj. panhard rod and cleaned all the cob webs off of it.

I cut up some pool noodles I got for the kids last year, that they may have used once, and cut them up for roll bar padding, need just a few more.

Thought I may have had a decision to make on which ACT clutch plate to use but the sprung disc is the larger 212mm so no hard choice there.

The best part was assembling all of the components I've ordered throughout the past few years, and complaining about the ones I'm missing?!?

Yes, it was a hard decision. I wanted to go dark blue, light blue or maybe even red. I just couldn't decide! Then I went to our paint cabinet and silver was the only high temp paint so I went silver, lol.

Lookin good Doug!
Especially that shift boot:deal:

How was the condition of that clutch disc? It slipped on 12lbs with BFG drag radials at about 5-6k rpm. But i figured it was the factory pressure plate considering the clutch only had about 3k miles on it at the time.

Never slipped on street tires though

Yes, the clutch disc looks great, heck even better then my old one with just Dyno time and a track night. I have the act pressure plate to go along with it I just need to make sure it fits. If not I have a little clutch shop here in town that can make me one, Spec clutch.

Nice, not sure if your pressure plate will fit that disc, but ANY pressure plate will work on that flywheel :deal:

Bummer. Well either use that plate you have and buy a new disc or get another pressure plate. Wasn't Alf selling an ACT pressure plate?
