curious to know how you plumbed the hydroboost?,
is this the mustang or bmw unit,
running with power steering rack or closed loop??

also did you use the stock mounting location?
cheers
Stu


I have the BMW unit and have it mounted in the stock location. I also have power steering.

The Mustang hydroboost is just a Bendix unit and was used on lots of cars and light trucks.

I've accomplished quit a bit lately. I got the headers ceramic coated and installed, I found a very nice set of Euro front turn signal lenses that are correct for the GT/GTS; I now have the parts for the fuel injection so no carb now and I have the body together enough to begin body work and paint prep. I am using a FAST EX-EFI Retrofit Kit to control the FI. I need oil cooler lines, ign wires and to install the harness and I can fire it up.

Those headers are pretty. Progress looks good!

I'm getting close to starting the engine. I need to install the wiring harness and the FI harness. I pre-lubed the engine (checked for leaks in the remote filter and cooler) and set the ignition timing.

That's a nice Porsche name plate. Along with the cam covers, it makes the engine look like the little-known and rare Porsche 302 V8!

It runs! First start today. The sound quality isn't too good though. In person with open headers it sounds like a Pro-Stock.

Reminds me of my old Mopar days. Sounds odd coming from a Porsche.

I bought them from a place in I think Germany. They are OEM 937 pieces. They were a little pricey though.

I don't remember the name off hand so I would need to look for it.

I'm starting to get the body ready to paint. Bought tires too.



Looks like I am going to need to re-index the rear torsion bars--sits a little too high.

It's in color! I need to put on the decals before I clear coat the body.
