I agree, I wish I had the software too. Nothing against Bama. I think Bama will get it right once we get back on it. I just like more control of my situation.
Funny thing you would think that because the 4v was available that Bama would have a better hold on NA 4 valves. I understand that the Mach was a limited edition but the mustang has had a DOHC available since 96. I mean I'm having my issues but think its more component related. I think a stock Mach would not pose a big issue. The platnium plug is a great plug don't get me wrong but its more of a mileage thing (longevity) the copper top will have a better conductivity. So I'm going to swap out when I can.

So now that the summer for some of us is at its end, and time to put our lovely steeds in there stable. What are some of the updates you guys have? I was hoping to keep this thread going but it seems to have come to and end. I was hoping on inspiring more people to do the swap but I find just that people still just start threads without looking, to only be answered by people with the same negative comments and let downs. Before I put the car up for the winter I will be sure to have a ride along video made.

I've been thinking about this and wondering if it's because you have to download the write-up. There are way more mobile users than I would have thought. These people would likely not download this to there device. Maybe you can start a thread and transfer your write-up in the thread? I realize this is a ton of work.

Have faith, you did a ton of good work in your write-up. I'm sure popularity will increase.

I thought about that two. The issue I think it would, is that the way the pictures are displayed on the mobile app. I think it maybe hard to follow... or see the photos even maybe tough. I know you can veiw it without downloading it at least I can on my android. But you raise a good point. I wish there was a way that I can host it on a site. Actually should look in to it.

You what would work good for phones & tablets? If it was a web page. That's easy to do in Word. What I'm getting at is maybe it can be saved a HTML and added to ME's Mustang Articles...? This is accessed from ME's main page at the top. You'd have to ask the owners, but this would be a great addition to the article group. I'm sure you could submit updates too.

Check out the articles main page...

The thread isn't dead. I'm still doing my swap. I just had personal issue that came up that had to be dealt with. Plus no internet sucks. I am in the process of sourcing some good stuff and also I have another mark viii car given to me with the DOHC engine intact. I will be doing a late model super charger swap on it. I've been keeping my swap engine turned and it has about 60 lbs of oil pressure with the starter turning it. Not bad. But I'm back!!!!!!!

I'd like to retain the factory look. And the procharger isn't factory. So that leaves me with the Eaton Roush or a Kenne Bell. So yeah the Eaton is a last resort. Also been looking at a kit that uses your A/C system and pipes it into the cooling system of the car. Since I plan to run a water to air intercooler I'm thinking about making sure its piped into the intercooler first. Will make for a cold charge going into the engine.

I'm just not into adding more issues to my design. Adding extra resoviors and hoses,etc and settling for an inferior intercooling design isn't something I care to do. Timing covers are different there's a list that is long that goes with it. I'm not one for that myself. KB's are nice but id rather have a slick Mach 1 setup with a procharger D series under the hood. With an air to air setup using CO2 on the intercooler.

I just want to be different but still maintain the factory look. With the kit it all looks like it belongs there plus no one will ever know otherwise unless they read this thread. lol

I'm still planning that engine build all out. I'm going to test the theory of these blocks and how much they can hold. This other engine I plan to go completely wild on a piece at a time. First major thing is getting it out and completely tore down. But my focus right now is on getting the other DOHC in the car so that I can drive it before the winter hits and I have to keep it parked.

That would be pretty BA. I think they can produce some major torque.

Something I assumed to be was not. I assumed that the 03-04 Cobra had a 6 bolt main. 4 on top 2 on side. Turns out no it does not. Its is a 2v romeo block and was the same service block until 2006 when they made changes. Only the aluminum Romeo block has 6 bolt mains. Pretty groovy. Still looking for a price to get my block sleeved with matching 3.70 pistons.

Yeah I've gotta do some things. Gotta change out the lifters and **** I've burnt 2qts of oil yet nothing out the pipe that I can see. But no leaks. 2qts in 3k but still with only 4k on the motor that's quite enough. Gonna tear the intake off to see if its blow by. I did gage my rings big for fi so it is expected. But we'll see. There is a light knock when cold but goes away when hot. So I dunno could be just piston slap but starting easy first lol. The lifters I know are talking so ill start with them.

Well kids I may have found a Mach intake for my C heads on the cheap. So we will see what happens this winter. Currently I'm chassing a fuel issue on my winter beater so my stead is enjoying her rest. I officially named her this year after 6 yrs. Her name is Christine.

Ya know, looking out the window and seeing Christine out there like that...kinda reminds me of seeing the cute girl next door outside and how you'd dream about her.

That could be taken in so many ways..... LMAO!!!

Waiting on my LT's and x pipe to get here then I'm slapping this engine in intake or not. I got to get something done with it since I polished up the timing cover and painted the valve covers so now I'm bored!!!!

Oh and FYI Stock k member and LT's do not get along very well. The driver's side of the K has to be modded for clearances.

Eeew, now that I read it, your right. Lol

I hope you find your intake soon. When I was laying on the garage floor adjusting my clutch cable I noticed how heafty the stock K's look compared to aftermarkets. How much of a weight drop do they give you?

I'd say a fair amount if you go tubular K.

I don't recommend any k member on a dd. I thought about it myself but the 35lbs you save isn't enough for me to loose structural rigidity. Lts are a tight fit that's why I went with the mids. Lol so many desicions out there

Crazy it's only ~35lbs. Yup, I think I've heard that from some other members. Maximum Motorsports, I heard, was the only one that even mentions its good for DD use. Don't quote me on that though.
