Then I need to do the same to my other IRS sitting under my chassis table so it can go under one of my Foxes too . . . . Maybe the SVO will get it after all.
    I have been trying to decide to do an IRS or solid axle w/torque arm on my Pace car. It is a long term project but I have been stock piling parts here and there.

    Looking good! Kitchen too. Stick with the SVO and it will be done before you know it. I'd say back to terrorizing the neighborhood, but its pretty rare to hear a 2.3T with a sinister exhaust note. They more-so have a not just a "get the hell out of the way note" but more-so a "your damn lucky I steered around you fool, watch out next time" type exhaust note.

    I hope to own an 85.5 or 86 SVO someday. But first my 85 build has to hit the completed for now stage and my 86GT has to get its long overdue restoration.

    I have some sleeper things planned for the 86. I am looking at doing some trick stuff like custom making widened 5 lug 10 hole wheels. As much as I like the tirbar rims done up like the 93 CobraR, now that LMR sells them I'm not nearly as excited about the idea of doing them. I don't like the tribars as is.... they aren't bad, but they aren't my favorite either. I could go mesh, but I'd rather leave that to the Saleens. I do want to retain my SN95 upgrades but in the end I'd like to keep it looking how I always loved it...... STOCK.

    Well I almost finished up the fuel lines today, that is until I decided to re-route the lines to tuck them up a little more after checking tire clearance. Then I broke one of my fittings trying to remove it because I made the braided line a little too long. On the bright side I am done with the hard lines. I also relocated the fuel filter as I do not want to have to drop the IRS every time I need to change it. I used a filter from a 98 Cobra that worked better with the AN adapters and fit nicely in front of the fuel tank filler neck (I will install a guard of some sort to keep road debris from messing it up). I am not sure I am a fan of having the return line hanging so low, I may look into a different clamp setup to tuck it up higher. Anyways on with the pictures......

    No problem!

    After getting your SVO all sorted out, I will drop off my 84 SVO so you can swap in my spare IRS for me. Should be a piece of cake for you by then! Besides I did the IRS swap on my 79 PC so long ago, I have forgotten most of what had to be done.

    I am right there with ya, I installed the IRS in 2012, but then it has been in and out a few times since then. Tho your offer is really tempting, but I would hate for the IRS to accidentally get installed on my Pace Car instead. You know cuz all of these 4 eyed Mustang look all alike.

    Well I finished up the hard lines today....or so I thought. Before I installed the fuel filter I wanted to double check that the lines would clear the IRS control arms. Well some of them do, but some do not when I fully cycle the control arms. Looks like I was not quite as far as I thought I was. On the plus dies I finished up the front fuel lines in the wheel well and to finish under the hood I have to order a 45* 6AN fitting and all will be done under the hood. I figured while the IRS was still out I would replace the rotors and pads...easy right. Well with adding the EBC green stuff pads and Centric rotors everything was too thick for me to re-install the calipers. Not sure what I did wrong (all the correct part numbers for a 03-04 Cobra). So I have to re-install the old pads (about 30 miles on them) and everything went back together after a little persuasion.

    Here are the parts numbers I used

    Centric Rotors 120.61046

    EBC Green Stuff Pads DP21156

    I am still plugging away at collecting parts. I am just wanting do to everything at once (vs' one thing, then another, then another, etc). So far (thanks to COVID sales) have added to following to my pile of parts.

    I thought it was time to upgrade my tubing benders. I also bought a bead roller to modify my intercooler piping with hopes of preventing any of the silicone couplers from flying oof under boost.

    I have been playing with the idea of replacing the distributor and going with an LS type of ignition system. Just not sure I want to spend the money on it right now.

    I do have a Pimp ECU for all of the parts listed above as well, just not installed yet.

    Anyways on with the pretty pictures of the go fast parts.

    Life has tends to get in the way. I retired from the Air Force last year and my new job keeps me away from home longer than I would like.

    I knew this was a long term project but is almost getting a little out of hand.
