Only slow cars need excuses.

Shaun's 1990 Mustang Cobra Clone

Here are some exterior shots. D (fellow Sally wrench/troubleshooter/AN fitting whiz-kid) took some nice "Bat-angle" shots, but being the HRM-turned photo elitist that I am, I had to axe a few (mostly because of plants covering the car, etc).

Obligitory engine bay shots. You'll notice the Pro-M Univer MAF, 72# injectors (bye bye, orange 42# injectors...), the stock airbox concealing (most of) the BOV, custom length Taylor wires (thanks, $50 MSD pro-crimper), the Autometer full sweep electric fuel pressure gauge sender, and.......gosh, what the hell is that for?

Oh, this is the injector resistor pack, which was really a successfull experiment. No Acceleronics box (though those are nice), no PMS driver box - the stock injector driver inside the EEC is in charge of the low impedance 72# injectors. Nobody was really sure if this would work until AFTER we found out it did, and then everyone said "Oh yeah, my buddy who isn't on the internet did this, and it worked well." Mmmm-hmmm. Anyway, my stroke of absolute Einstein-like brilliance was suggesting we hack up another shot 5.0 harness to use the plus, so we could do soldering on a nice bench (instead of over the car) and could remove it at will while retaining full "unmolested" harness cred. Shaun realized that the factory included short lengths in the injector harness, which many people eliminate for reliability, so he had a pair of connectors in his secret stash. For people who think big injectors can't idle, come listen to Sally. Look for resistor boxes as some of the first Shaunthony's offerings.

Check out the rad downpipes/cutouts. They work like a charm and really deserve some close up shots. Armed with a 4 1/2" angle grinder, a chop saw, a die grinder, the floor of Shaun's garage, and a MIG welder, we made these suprisingly professional-looking dumpers. What will happen when we get a real shop with real tools designed for all this? Be afraid......and while you're sitting there (being afraid), notice the connector on the passenger side. That's a L1H1 Honda WBO2 sensor, which is used in conjunction with the ubiquitous DIY WB kit. $30 kit + $75 for the sensor on eBay + an afternoon of soldering stuff to a PCB = killer A/F ratio readouts! And thanks to the TwEECer software, we can view it in real time via the TwEECer display and log it. Budget at its finest!
