    Mike's 302 to 351W Swap.

    Got my wideband to communicate (after some trial and error) to the Logworks program on my computer. However for some reason the gauge reads a bit off from Logworks. I think my scales or something are off on Logworks as I used the "auto" gauge function. Also had to get a serial to USB adapter for...

    Got the wideband successfully installed and calibrated. I am working on getting all the programming downloaded to my laptop for tuning. Need to get a serial to usb adapter (new Lenovo travel computer doesn't have old school ports). Tuning will be done on Binary Editor with Moates hardware...

    Spent a couple hours on the car yesterday. Ran the wiring under the hood and just need to connect everything in the cabin. I was going to utilize the old 3-pod pillar unit I removed from the car several years ago as I HATED it. Looking closer; definitely not going to re-use this pile. Check out...

    Got my wideband in today: Going to be learning how to tune with the help of a friend with Moates tuning.

    Got the fan installed and functional. Just need an on-off-on switch to enable the 2 speeds. Also got the new 255LPH pump installed, removed the old 190LPH. Pictures of the old crap removed. I was in top gear putting the new in so no pics.

    Finally wired up my fans (temporarily again). Wiring isn't my best but will get me by. Luckily most of it will be hidden, still need to get a few wire loom push pins going across the top. Using all junkyard parts to get me by for another year. Next winter I will purchase a stand alone PWM fan...

    It has been a few years since I have gone. Unfortunately the car is still in pieces and the salt is keeping me at bay....

    Began stripping the old loom and electrical tape off the new Mercury Cougar wiring harness. Realized I forgot to grab the Fan resistor (goes in the little orifice in the fan shroud). Will have to pick one or two up. Its for the low speed setting that will now work with the 2 speed volvo relay.

    Picked up the new fan harness, a second Volvo relay for backup and a battery tie down to jerry rig back onto my cut battery tray.

    Got my MAF harness extended, took my time and did 4 very good solder connections with shrink wrap and dielectric silicone. Shouldn't have any issues: And the intake assembled: Working on mounting the Volvo relay to the Courgar fan shroud. This weekend I will be going to the JY to get a new...

    Spent my lunch break cleaning the new parts gingerly: All clean, just need to test:

    Well tank removal didn't happen. Being sick slowed me down. I think I am going to hold off on getting the Derale PWM fan controller. I think this will be on next winters wish list. I'm getting near my money cap for this season now that I need to purchase some items for the re-tune. And the tune...

    Finally got my intake parts. Only took a week and a half.... Hope to start tank removal this weekend and replace the fuel pump.

    Thanks! I am trying to decide if I want to go cheap and use the Volvo junkyard relays or get a Derale variable controller. Those things are sweet units, soft start.
