    Det_Riot's Sexual Teal Whale Cannon Resurrection

    Since the donor car is going to be stripped for use in both cars, I think the way I'll post updates when they coincide with videos is to post the video links for those who don't want to read my babbling and just want to watch the videos and then continue with the normally scheduled nonsense postings =D Once we got the car stripped down it was time to figure out how to make it start. We tried once to fire it up and when we did, it fired up, backfired, and died. So after performing a mild evaluation of everything that was there electronic wise, we knew that the MAF connector was broke off but the pins appeared to be intact so that was our starting point. Now I wouldn't ever say that I'm a master mechanic but by looking at the other end of the connector, I had a sneaking suspicion that if I could line up the pins correctly in the broken housing, that I could plug the connector right back in! So after about a minute of fiddling around with lining up pins, we made connection to the MAF! Good as new! And with that, we took another stab at firing! If you follow this link you'll see just how quickly and effortlessly the car started up. I cut it off early because I thought my buddy was saying to kill it when he was just asking about check engine lights (which it undoubtedly had). But the most exciting thing about all of this is that the car fired right up, had no stutters or stammers, hiccups, nothing! Which is all I was really hoping for with the donor because I knew I was taking a huge risk with never hearing the car start prior to purchase. Upon starting the car back up and little the idle settle down a bit, there was some rather loud valve train noise that was a little bit concerning. My buddy who was standing up at the front end quickly found the problem. Turns out the sheetmetal airbox from Whipple and the valve cover decided to have a territory battle because of the accident, and the weaker valve cover lost . So add that to the list of parts to pick up for the SN - Fancy coyote valve covers. Haven't seen any for the 18's yet since the direct injection pump sits on the passenger VC. Hopefully someone releases some soon! Next up is starting the whipple swap over to Jo's car!

    We're trying to orient all of her stuff towards drag racing, so the full steeda package will be up for grabs, jacking rails, IRS Brace, springs, shocks, subframe lockout, billet upper shock mount. I'd love to sell it as a whole package, makes my life easier! Thanks man! haha I'll blaze the way so you can follow suit! Most definitely keeping the straight axle. I'm pretty sure the 18 IRS is almost 8-10 inches wider than the 03/04 IRS was. That along with severely different mounting mechanisms makes this an unlikely swap lol Thanks! It was a lot easier than I thought it would of been =D Yessssir! Hoping that it's a fairly straight forward endeavor but I know i'll run into some snags along the way!

    Some picture dump from tear down. First things first, when my buddy picked up the car it didn't run. The car would fire and shut down immediately. So before we messed with it too much, to me it was of the utmost importance to figure out why it didn't run. I wanted to inspect all major sensors, the condition of the belt assembly, and any other harnesses that could of gotten damaged during the accident. After a little bit of elbow grease, we got the hood pulled off since it was jammed up pretty well in the latch. Drivers fender took a little bit of work since it was pushed back into the door but it wasn't anything we couldn't handle Don't have too many pictures of the tear down, I'm definitely going to need to get a little better at juggling video work and camera for the different platforms of build threads we'll have going. Once we got the bumper off it was a little easier to assess the damage. As you'll see below, whipple heat exchanger was a definite total loss, AC Condensor is still up for debate on if it's holding but we didn't have the balls to crack the system yet and check. Radiator doesn't appear to be damaged to the point of leaking aside from the connector to the upper reservoir. The nice thing that ford did starting with the 15's (Thanks GT350) was make the upper core support bolt on and off. From what I've been told, the 350 engines and transmissions are assembled and installed as one, and having a bolted upper support increased the productivity at the plants. Also means this tear down was a breeze after that was removed! Some definite damage to the drivers upper frame rail, but nothing extravagant. Damage translated down to the fender support bracket, and bent up some stuff around the horn assembly but luckily nothing from the whipple kit was damaged (HX Resevoir and pump) That's enough for now! We tackled trying to start the car the other day but haven't gotten media uploaded yet so more to come!

    So for those of you who don't follow JoAnna and I on IG, we dropped some pretty exciting news yesterday! No, we aren't pregnant No, we aren't moving No, we aren't getting a new pet. (Link to video for those who haven't seen) We have, as the video so elegantly puts, picked up an organ donor that conveniently satisfies both of our needs! It's funny how life puts you in situations that work out for the best. Since nothing can be put shortly, thanks @95riosnake for always making extravagantly long posts, I'll give you guys the dirty details on the pick up. It all started September 25th, typical morning at work, browsing copart and IAAI to check out the newest crop of wrecked 18's, searching for the perfect donor car. Nothing too exciting to hopped over to Mustang6G to peep the recently posted threads. Always seeing whats new since the s550 platform is new to me. That's when a specific thread title caught my eye; "Wrecked....2018 GT Whipple" The inner child was screaming, the outer child, a shit eating grin a mile wide. "2018 Base GT, manual, 10k miles, Whipple stage 1, full steeda suspension, just need to get out of it, i still owe on on the car" I sprung at the opportunity to get a little more information on the car. Guy bought the car new back in April in Florida. Drove it up to Stainlessworks in Ohio for them to R&D their full 2018 exhaust on it, drove it up to Steeda in Georgia three or four times for various part installs, got the Whipple in early August, drove it back up to Steeda for install. Had it on the car for 2k miles before someone pulled out in front of him and he smacked right into the rear bumper/ trailer hitch. Pictures from the accident: After working with the seller through his bank, payoff, my bank, etc, etc, my buddy headed down to pick the car up from Port Richey Florida about a week later. Knowing that the garage was going to be getting a little use out of it in the coming weeks, I finally got off my ass and turned my garage back into a useful space. No picture of the progress, but I've got a bunch of drywall that needs to get hung still and most definitely need to add some lights to the space. Picked up this little rack to help assist with the various swaps; General plan of action is as follows: -Push SN outside, wash her, get her under the cover -Pull in Jo's 18 and prepare for the Whipple swap -Whipple swap her car and N/A Swap the Organ Donor -Take her car to our buddy's for winter storage -Wrecked car back outside - SN Inside -Start SN Tear down -Rolling Shell back outside, Organ donor back inside -Organ donor teardown - Dump Organ Donor Shell -SN Build up In my vision, I'm going to be using 97% of the car. When you get inside of the STWC, I want it to feel like you're inside of a 2018 mustang. For all intents and purposes, when you plug in to the OBD2 port, the brains should have no idea that it isn't in a 2018 shell. Dash, console, electronics, wheel, everything that I can utilize from the 18, I want to. As much as I wanted to get a donor with active exhaust to have active side exhaust, it's one less thing that I need to tie into. The biggest challenges that I can foresee at this point are: Steering column/steering rack- the organ donor has selectable steering modes which would be cool to keep, might have to make up custom mounts for the rack ABS/Strabilitrak function- the ability to utilize the 2018 tech would be awesome, my drop spindles and rear axle have provisions for ABS, will have to do a dive into the reluctor rings, but this seems feasible at this point. Heating/cooling- This is the most important thing that I want to keep from the donor. If I can get ac/heat to function successfully, this entire project is a success in my book.
