That's right. My coworkers were telling me to just get the heads out and repair the damage but I do not want to risk it. Is better to spend an extra $1000 than replacing my whole engine.

I'm at Miami Gardens, and I wish I could go to the meets but I work weekends, but maybe one day I'll go.


Hopefully by next week I'll tune this thing for good, so stay tune for the vids and the results

Well I still have a lot of issues after the dyno tuning. I thought that it was a bad tuning so I tried with another pcm and it was worse, it still leaning out, idle surging like crazy and worst of all a really really bad hesitation between 1500 to 2000 rpm. I changed the distributor because it was not corroded, it was basically rotting in there, changed the coil and the module and I have solved nothing. So next comes the wiring which is probably more than 20 years old and it was not installed 100% right CEL missing, fuel pump wiring was done through an external switch and so on and on. Anyways here is where I stand as of today.



Will make a documentation of my installation.

Stay tuned!!!!

Default Re: 93 Ranger V8 with a PT88 turbo

Wow I can't believe it's been a nearly year and a half that I haven't post any updates. My apologies to you guys since I'm still battling the bucking/hesitation issue. I have changed so far besides the engine harness the computer, new aftermarket distributor (mallory), TFI module(new motorcraft), TPS, spark plugs, spark plugs wires, coil, and the clutch. Yes I even thought it was the clutch!! But no change. I'm working with a new tuner from Louisiana, him and I are still scratching our heads on what could it be. Next step is another stock factory distributor since I heard on mustang forums that aftermarket distributors are prone to fail, so I'm going to try that. If that doesn't do anything, I guess the last thing I'm going to throw at it is new injector. I tested the injectors I have now in a flow bench and they were good from what the tester showed me. There was one injector that was flowing slightly lower that the others but he told me that it shouldn't be a big deal. Anyways here's some pics. BTW these are not all the pictures I took, I was robbed at gun point in front of my house by some pricks and they stole my phone which is were I kept all the photos. I was able to save a few to my computer.




I marked all the wires so I don't get lost on the installation




This was how I previously installed the gauges. What a mess!!!


This is how I had it before






Again look at all that mess, I can't believe I did that!!LOL


If you are going to remove that dash for some reason, don't forget to remove the antenna cable. There's a bracket bolted to the dash that is part of the cable, you have to remove first. It's a little PITA


Finally the dash is off. You are going to need help taking the dash out, so that way it doesn't get damaged


Now is when the fun begins. As you can see, I removed everything that has to do with the ac/heater since i'm never going to use it, and to make room for what's next


Next I opened up a hole in the center of the cabin/firewall. This is where I'm going to route the new harness


This is the tool I used. Work marvelously!!


Here's the P/N in case you're interested


There's something wrong in this picture lol. This is the connector for the washer fluid and heater blower located underneath the dash by the passenger side.


This is how I had the old harness routed. You can see that it goes to the driver's side tucked behind the engine to the stock computer location.


Yeah I know I had a real mess in there lol


Once I got the old harness out, I started to take it apart to see what I could find. And this is what I found.
Is one of the wires that goes to the tfi module. I got so happy because I thought that I've found the problem :insert sad trumpet here: And yeah my crimping skill were terrible. That's what I get for hurrying thing up. Do it right the first time!!!!



I started placing all the components in a piece of aluminum.


Once I got everything where I wanted I put some nut plates, that way I can remove whatever I want
and not worry about the nuts falling



Made another piece of aluminum to cover on of the heater holes.


I wish I could leave it like this. It kinda looks awesome!!






The other two holes were also covered up but I don't have the pics


Test fit of the computer and the FRCM (fuse relay control module). I Also had to cover a big hole on the top
of the computer which I believe it was also for the heater. If I didn't cover this hole, water will get in and fry my pcm



These 3 wires are for the TFI module since I'm installing it inside the cab away from the heat




They need to be shielded


In this picture doesn't show the ground wire, you need to ground these wires only on one side


This is how the harness was after I put everything how I wanted inside the cab, I had to shorten the length
of the cables from the actual connector. I have the proper crimper and most of the ford terminals, that way I
eliminated the splices to a minimum.



MSD box and TFI heatsink in place.


I painted the aluminum piece and installed everything how I wanted. I also installed some sort
of dynomat which works pretty good, it keeps most of the heat and sound away. Note that little wire that is on
the top of the TFI module? That is the ground for the TFI relocation harness. Alos note some extra wires on the connector that goes to the pass door is for the window module and the remote ignition system ( The system is called "Advanced Keys)



Another view


In this picture you can see that I've installed 2 connectors. One is for the PCM + - and fans(10 gauge wires)
and the other one is for the MSD box.



I've also installed an extra fuse box for the remote and window controller system


And like I said, I also changed the clutch thinking that it was the clutch. This was done months after the harness installation


First disk


I believe this is called a "floater", it goes between each disk


Second disk


And finally the pressure plate
