we lost the band?? dam!
Day late and a dollar short..........
Lol..... Thanks, I will dry my eyes and put the kleenex away!!
The valve spring compressor tool is working well... Can't imagine doing this with out one!
which valve spring tool are you using?
I got mine from here.....
Thanks man, you just saved me $120
I was going to get the Freedom Racing tool for $200
Wolf. If you are removing springs with the cams in, you may need the Freedom tool.
Oh good call
I plan on swapping my intake cams for the L&M cam so that’s not a problem
But now I guess I have to decide if $120 is worth removing my exhaust cams as well
Took both cams out as it seemed easier to get at the springs that way
By the way, is the tune Shaun is giving you a specific tune for a road course car or is ii the same as a street/strip car? If different, what is the difference? Throttle mapping? Different advance?
Its a track tune with more engine braking, no TC, its noticeably different then the street tune... Now I just leave it in all the time... I think the advance is the same as I asked for 93gas tune.. Shaun did say that I should add a few points of extra octane with race gas to be on the safe side. Really love this tune.... I put it in at the track and right away the ZL1's no longer pulled away from me on the straights.
Well we are almost ready to put the engine back in the car.... What do you guys recomend for priming the oil pump etc??
Mat the throttle and crank for 30 sec. maybe more. Don't lift the pedal until you want it to fire. Maybe do it twice and check for oil flow. Charge your battery before hand.
Almost ready to go in the car! If anyone sees anything wrong.... let me know!
Well.....turned the engine over for three sessiones of 30 secs two prime it up... And then the car started right away... Huge relief! Then.... check engine light comes on with P0355. We had replaced the 2012 wiring harness with a 2013 so we could put in new vct sensores etc.... turns out the new wiring harness has the pins crossed!! Number 5 coil has no current getting to it (checked with other coils as well). Now mapping the whole dam harness to see what else is switched around.... See if either we cut the new plugs off and put them on the old harness or just find the offending cable a fix it...... grrrrrr
I was pretty sure (still am)... That the 2013 harness is the same as the 2012 and if I remeber right the 2012 is no longer made.
Wow. Surprised it's not plug n play. Glad there aren't mechanical issues.
That makes two of us!!!
All fixed, Ford sent a harness with crossed wires .... runs fine now.. Monday off to get a the cats off and then log for final tune. I guess its dyno time soon. Next Saturday 3 hour final race of the season!
