    Sn95 to fox TB swap?

    I did some mocks last night and see what I'd have to do to make it work and yes it will have to run over the back side of the top of the intake but and if I do that I'll have a bracket to hold it down instead of up high in the air as his cable is. But all in all I'll think about it as to if I'll just for now use the elbow and not know rather the difference in the routing will have gave much much better throttle response. Yes the other way is a cleaner look overall but not a game changer as to all of the things necessary I'd have to do.

    What are you referring to when you say the packaging is not ideal? One thing I'll do is do a mock setup and disassemble the tb and reassemble it and see how about cable routing and length. Right now that motor is still in the wrecked car and I'm going to move it out of one garage into another where the car will eventually be broken down.

    Sn95 to fox TB swap?

    whatup man? I remember us talking here or somewhere else and may have exchanged numbers as I had more in depth questions. Well now I have my list together and it's changed back and forth some lol. I should be ready to start on the 331 build first of the year. The past week I've decided to do the fox swap for the 331 as I was definitely going to do it on the 400 W but over the course of the past few days and seeing a thread on stangnet, I've decided to do what fastgtfairlane did and he used his SN tb just like you would use the fox tb for the conversion. He had to make some adjustments to the SN throttle cable but got it to work and said he had no issues. Now I didn't like the way his cable was routed on the top of his intake and used one of the intake bolts to secure the bracket. His edelbrock intake puts the tb in the center or more in the center it seems but I'm still not sure why he chose to run it on top of the intake like that. If you get a chance, check out " homemade cold air pipe" and click images. It will probably be on the 3rd row and he used pvc pipe for his cold air. After doing more in depth research over the past few days, it seems the 96-04 pipe would work for me. I originally wanted a pipe I could get powdercoated and know the best bet was to try and find a used one which I did, or mock one up. Seeing the work I'd have to put in to mock it up and have it put together then powdercoat, I'd be a good bit of money into the pipe and probably more than worth it. So a chrome pipe will do me just fine. I'll just dress the engine up a little more proportion to the chrome. I wanted the intake and pipe coated the same color. I've seen some pipes on ebay for about 50 bucks shipped, chrome. Other vendors have BBK for 170 something and I saw SR performance for 75 bucks. So 50 bucks will likely do as I think that pipe will work fine for me. I'll use my 70 mm professional products but I'd have to buy another meter as I'm going up to 30's for the 331. NA car, no track, and when it's all said and done I'll have a 331, 400 W, and lastly a Terminator.

    haha marvelous how my search now brought me to this thread while googling. I'm going to do the fox conversion for my 331. I was going to just re-use my Sn stuff from my 302 but as for the throttle body I'll just go ahead and do the conversion. I'll likely go with a 70 mm accufab, professional products, or bbk as they seem the most common names?? And I'm building 2 cars, the other a 400 W. Lastly I want a terminator. And my intake is my performer 2 with 70 mm opening. No need on going with a larger fox tb for upgrading later. The 331 will stay and will be the last motor I do for it. NA non- track

    Also, how do you like the drilled and slotted rotors? Over the years I thought I read where one of them, rather it was drilled and slotted, or just drilled or just slotted, wasn't worth spending the money on because it didn't help keep the brakes cool or something along those lines IIRC. I bought the 94 cobra in October and the front calipers are already painted or coated but I'll likely redo them. I definitely want to bling up the rest of the brakes as well (rotors, ect. )

    Well yesterday I was super curious and did a little homework with the info you provided. I talked to Steve @ billet badges and he gave me the rundown on what he could remember though it was 5 yrs ago or so lol. I'll likely use my performer 2 intake and the plate will not need to be screwed on because the access bolts are out of the way. So in that regard mine will require less work and I can go with a stick on plate; if that will work and not have to worry about coming off later. I'm thinking maybe double sided tape. My intake also will be powdercoated. So I'm thinking with mine it just need the lettering and lines milled or shaven off and then I can make a template out of cardboard and send to Steve. Not sure I want to do all of that though but I definitely thought it was worth inquiring. I think it would definitely stand out.

    Hey Dan I'd love to get more info on making my intake badge similar for the 94 I'm building. Thanks in advance

    definitely understand that as well

    Sn95 to fox TB swap?

    gotcha man. I have pretty much decided to just go ahead and do the fox conversion but surely want to do whatever I need to do to avoid throttle jamming issues

    Sn95 to fox TB swap?

    cool. Any issues with the throttle jamming? What tb did you use?

    Sn95 to fox TB swap?

    I'd like to see if there were any guys who actually didn't do the swap and had good results?
