My Nova is just awesome with like the 2 wires to the distributor and plug wires..its converting me to want it in my ranger..real nice carb 351 maybe?IDK
Ahh it would be nice with less wiring but there's really not to much wiring anyways for just the motor, I'll never go back to a carb unless it's like an old muscle car maybe. The body harness is what has so much damn wiring.

I'm really glad my truck is all manual still there's a lot of useless wiring everywhere though, gotta get rid of that.
Still the stock 96 explorer ecu, I gotta start calling around some performance shops and see if anyone can tune with that ecu or not. Might go aftermarket with like a mega squirt or something.

Well got a good bit of work done this weekend, did a bunch of random crap Saturday and cleaned the shop up. Sunday I mounted up my Saginaw PS pump and then got my motor mounts all built and welded up.

Well got my turbo waste gate and blow off valve last Friday. Finished up my motor mounts over the weekend and started measuring things out to decide where I wanna put them. Ordered a intercooler this morning so hopefully I'll have that for this weekend, here's a few pics anyways.

Finished up the pass side header just gotta weld it all up. Picked up an extended can this weekend wasn't really planned but it was a good deal I couldn't pass up. Gonna have tha can mounted this weekend hopefully and maybe start a cage for it.




Had to cut out sections for the cab to sit how I wanted it.

I like the hatchet beside the cut marks. "who needs cutoff wheels and plasmas when you have a hatchet?? Look at the cuts I made! Yes, it's true. Chuck Norris is in my family tree" lmao. Sorry. Had a mental image there I needed to share

Lol I knew someone would comment on the hatchet, and yes I did use it in spots where I couldn't get the cutoff wheel or sawzall and I didn't feel like dragging out the plasma. I gotta say it worked out.

Got body mounts made today and put a new crossmember under the cab. Gonna order some tube for a cage this week. I think I'm just gonna use CREW due to the crazy price of DOM for the amount I use the truck I think it will be fine.
