I had headers trans intake and K member attached I did it alone and did not scratch a thing. I just took my time. Yes I did use the control pack Very simple to wire up. The only thing i have not wired up yet is the VSS wires to my trans and Dakota digital.
Thanks man! I’m only learning with all of this. Wish I had a little more skills especially electricals but I am getting by!Loved reading through this build. LOVE your car. You have a great attention to detail and have outfitted your car with all the best, tasteful mods. Looking forward to following this one!
ok cool. Glad it worked out for you. Just did not for me. Didn’t want to risk it any further.
No biggie, just another day into this build
yeah FRPP seems to be very simple to wire up but there always is something lol. I‘m confident it will be all good. Only thing I’m unsure about is how much of the old harness can I remove. I am trying to figure out how is the brake switch/ lights, clutch switch, etc are being powered if I remove the harness. Still need to re read the control pack manual again to look for those stuff.
Has anyone transplanted a SN95 radiator into a fox? Let me know.
I have this nice aftermarket radiator from 98 GT and would love to re-use it rather than spending on a new one. I am thinking about fabricating lower brackets from the SN95 on my fox. Need to mock up the radiator first and see if I can find a mobile welder
I just seen you put this. I was able to install a 99-04 cobra radiator in my swap. Worked out perfectly. I used the provided upper hose from the frpp control pack and a lower hose that lmr sells. The radiator does not have a cap so i added the coolant over flow over it like a factory coyote car would have.
We will figure this out together then!Id like to know how much i can remove also. I did not pull my dash and pull out the wiring mess underneath it like you did. At least not yet, I have future plans to put in a s197 dash and then i will deal with that. Not sure what the answer is for what to do with factory wires and so on. Or if its more simple to just run my own harness to lights horn blinks etc. Ill keep watching your build progress. You will not regret it i promise you that. What year is the motor? I must have missed it. And it looks like the sn you are parting has front coilovers. If so are they for sale?
I also removed my entire factory computer and did not need it for the wiring. So that is def not needed. But all of the other mess is a different story. I just have not had time to see what i can do to mate the frpp computer to wire in the lights. For the newer radiator i actually made a tubular radiator support and welded tabs on the top of my radiator to bolt it to my upper radiator support using existing U bolts. I also used a corvette c5 fuel filter for my return if you have not figured that out yet. You could get a lot of good info from the Youtube channel called Strokercoupe. If you are planning on running heat and dont want the lines looped in your upper intake like they are you could use stock coyote hoses and cut them and mate with other hoses using barbs or i think lmr sells hoses that work. I used the stock hoses from a 2011+ gt because they use the push lock fittings and i just cut the ends. Good luck sorry for writing a novel.
Can you elaborate on what happened to yours?
Good call! I definitely was going to look into confirming this before doing anything. I guess you just did the homework for me. Thank you! I will flip it back and try to get it to look better than beforeCorrect me if I'm wrong, but it appears you swapped the lines at the remote filter mount. If so, you might have reversed the direction of flow through the oil filter. Oil will not flow through the filter backwards. You will destroy the engine if run this way. A co-worker a mine ruined a coyote for this exact reason
Do some research and make sure the ports on the block adapter go to the correct port at the remote filter. This diagram is from Maximum Motorsports relocation kit.
