    Default Dohc In 91 Coupe

    hey all trying to get some info on the finishing touches to my fox conversion. first of all ive already installed hydroboost system (didnt have to modify the stock 91 pedals everything fit just had to drill out 1 hole in fire wall) 5 lug all wheel disk saleen front calipers cobra rear end 373 gears tremec 5 speed and a 4.6 dohc out of a 97 cobra. i used the stock k member out of the cobra fox a arms with sn95 ball joints to keep the toe in right. now all i have left to do is figure out how to wire this thing up i have the stock 4.6 computer which i will end up using. i am keeping the stock 5.0 dash harness will worry about the guages later and kept the drivers side wiring to keep the headlight wiring all i need to know is can i just use the passenger side harness off a cobra to get it to fire? i know about the pats system and all that and also how is the imrc operated is it off the throttle cable or off something elese i had big problems getting the throttle cable since its obsolete from ford now any help would be great so close yet so far away

    If you didn't replace the pedals, and you didn't change the end of the hydroboost that goes to the brake pedal, how did you correct the pedal geometry?

    when we put the hydro boost in the car my buddy hooked up the plunger to the stock pedal i really dont how it worked out but it does and there is no hang in the pedal i can push it all the way to the floor it works fine but the steering shaft was a dfferent story all to gether we had to take a 94 up telescoping end that connects to the rack and the fox end that goes to the wheel and knock out the u joints out tof both to make it fit where the fox shaft was about a 1/4 inch too short it can be done but it a pain

    Yeah a pain it was! This sombitch kept me up til 3:30 am working on that shaft. All is good, I got me a sausage biscuit out of it!! Our only holdback is the drivers side wiring harness, how to wire it up to the DOHC harness. And also on the passenger side, How to get power to the ECU???
