  1. So no real work got done at the new house until we got Jo's car out of the garage, which inconveniently didn't happen until we went down to Florida for Cleetus' Christmas Tree race. So as soon as it was out of the garage, I set that bad boy sideways and work began! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr First thing was to check the squreness of the k-member. No pictures of the process but I was surpised that it was only out by 1/16" crossed and I called that good enough! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr After that it was back to the interior for some more dash trimming. Took out some more of the windshield bar. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Now that I was pretty happy with the fit of the dash pad, it was time to start working on the frame! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Remove Pad from Frame Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Initially I thought I could remove the end brackets, cut down the frame bars, and attach the dash in the same manner (through the A-Pillar) Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr With the end plates out of the way, I could get a better feel for what room there is to work for the heater core and what not Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Plenty of room! Dash and Console looking right at home! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr At this point it was time to start working the brackets for the dash frame. Some simple 90* gusseted brackets seem like it's going to be the easiest way. Biggest thing for me was to learn how to weld Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr First rendition of the driver bracket turned out pretty decent for the dash side. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Passenger bracket mocked up Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr next step was to work on the car side of the bracket. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr This step was exponentially harder than I ever would have imagined. I ended up making 3 different version of this bracket before I was totally content with it. Used Riv-nuts for the attachment to the dash frame and welded to the A-pillar of the car. That welding whooped my ass. Screwed the first bracket up when my welder settings were off and it globbed everywhere and looked like dookie. Second bracket I thought was right and I thought welded on fully but again, wrong amperage settings and it didn't penetrate to the car. So I made a 3rd bracket out of thicker material....fucked that one up and bent it wrong and I made it for a 4th time again and it was finally a success! Had a buddy come over and help weld up the drivers bracket, then tackled the passenger side by myself. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr DS looking mint! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Remember that thicker bracket that I mentioned previously? Well I figured that the thicker material would be good for a single bolt attachment! Repurposed it into this: Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr After dialing in the welder earlier in the day, I figured this side would be a breeze, especially with the thicker material. Well I trolled myself and forgot to turn the gas on. So ugly weld, but it'll definitely hold! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Adjusted the single bolt attachment point so give some side to side play within the bracket and this is what we got! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr AND in 900 simple steps, and 150 dash installs and removals, this dash is mounted and only supplemental supports to be finished! This includes the two lower attachment points which conveniently align with the OEM dash stud on the drivers side, as well as the captured nut on the passenger side. From there I need to build a new "subfloor" which will provide support for the bottom of the dash as well as the console. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr
  2. With the K-member in the car, it was time for the first meeting of the Whale Cannon and the Gen 3 Coyote! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr In like a glove! It's much wider than the pushrod was, can't wait for that fun to begin! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Now that the engine was in the bay, it was time to start inching away on the dash. The process that I felt would be most appropriate would be to seperate the dash pad from the frame and all of it's components so it would be easiest to get it into postion. From there, attach it to the frame and work backwards and down. It first started with cutting up the pinch welds on the main window support bar and seeing how it fit... Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Pinch welds turned into the full support bar Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr And finally we're getting somewhere! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr At this point, life got infront of Jo and I and the project got put on the backburner. We bought a new house and getting her car into the 8's became the priority. After a tough season and a lot of set backs, it happened at the last event of the year! 8.93 @ 161 (Probably a fluke MPH) But it didnt matter! It ws done and the only way to go on from here was forward!
  3. Alright, Alright, Alright (cue Matthew McConaughey) This is the start of the update y'all have deserved! Since last year's update, things have been pretty hectic but steady progress has been happening so lets get ya'll up to speed! First things first! Now that the S550 donor was finished being stripped, it was time to start tearing down the whale cannon! It pained me to pull the black interior out of the whale cannon but it served me well! It, along with the carbon driven pulls will soon be seen in @CompOrangeSN95's 5.4L swapped SN! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr All engine bay stripped down and mostly pulled apart Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Next it was time to start working on making the coyote and the interior work in the SN! With the Gen 3 Oil Pan being composite, integrated into the pan, and specific to the gen 3 oil pump, I thought it was a pretty good idea to make the engine work from pan to valve covers. With the Team Z Motorsports K-Member, the composite pan had a little bit of clearance issues with sitting fully onto the K-Member perches. So I had my buddy fabricate me up some 1/2" taller Motor Mounts! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Things were all good once the mounts were made up! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Back to the SN, she started looking more naked than ever. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr With a little bit of trimming, the S550 Dash and console made their first appearance in the car! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Here you can see that the shifter location would have to be set further back from the OEM Location...more on this later Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Engine bay ready for it's new K-Member! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr
  4. hahah it'll come! Surprisingly close. It's definitely not just pop it in there and she's all happy
  5. Back on my shit, yearly update time! With 2020 being a cluster hole of a year and us investing into my wife's racing program. The SN spent another year as an untouched roller. But we bought a new house last March, took possession in May, and slowly got the house set to the point that the SN was finally going to get some attention! It made it back home roughly in October and didn't get a lot of progress right away but have been chipping away. Things are starting to come together and I'm super grateful for that! Working on the car tonight so hopefully that will lead to some good updates with pictures for y'all! The gen 3/whipple/magnum build is coming together. I'll be using this thread again for my rough sketch and knowledge dump for anyone who's trying to follow suite as it was intended!
  6. Now this is freaking cool!
  7. Dang sonnn! That's a hell of some updates! I desperately need to do the same. If mine wasnt in my garage i'd probably be forgetting that I own it!
  8. Jesus lord. I'm bad at foruming. But I promise updates have been made but not logged well. Well at least logged here! Like @TTSALEEN said, we've been slowly knocking away and getting everything ready for the swap! Jo's car was a priority this year but it was fun being able to build and manage someone else's build and not my own! That being said, going through the hoops with her car this year made planning for my car a heck of a lot easier, mainly because I plan on copying her build, but in a SN, with a Tremec Magnum sitting behind it! Just can't get myself to get away from a stickshift, it's too enjoyable on the street. So last time you saw the SN, it was outside, half uncovered. Well, as I start this update, I regret to inform you, that's where it remained for most of the year. Last time you guys saw the donor car, it looked relatively lame. Something like this: Aside from the engine and major interior components, the car still had a fair amount of goods left to rid of in preparation for the swap! I didn't take pictures of everything as it came out, mostly the highlight items and stuff that I knew i'd have to reference back too eventually. So out came the electronic accelerator pedal (no pics), and the clutch/brake pedal assembly. Major items to note on the pedal assembly were the locations of the various switches. S550's apparently got two clutch position switches (Up and Down) and a single brake pedal switch. I've been stacking most of the parts that I might need or might need reference too and this is once of them. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr While I don't believe that I will end up reusing the entirety of the pedal assembly, I will be taking note of the switch locations and moving those over to the SN pedal housing assembly. For those that don't remember, I'm going to basically be pulling everything out the s550 donor car, and swapping it into my SN95 shell, thusforth creating Project SN9550: The Sexual Teal Whale Cannon Resurrection. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Ta Da! One coyote front powertrain distribution box and wiring can fit in a home depot moving box Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr The main factor in the decision to make the SN pedal assembly work, was the decision to keep the car stickshift and cable driven at that. With how the SN pedals are already set up for a clutch cable, it seemed like a big waste of time to figure out mounting up the S550 pedals, designing a clutch cable assembly, routing lines, blah blah blah. So, off the table that consideration went. Move 3 sensors and be done with it. Plus Scram Speed makes a trick bracket to mount the electronic throttle cable to sn/fox body! While I did label every single connector as the car got disassembled, I took pictures of some random things here and there. Off to finish stripping the interior! With technology advancing, so are safety items! The S550's came with this trick seat belt and pretensioner assembly. Basics of how it works, is when a hard enough impact is detected, the air bag systems trips a signal and it fires off a co2 canister located in this assembly. So instead of your body pulling against the seatbelt locking the seatbelt mechanism, this shoots the actual dead end of the seat belt in to do the same thing. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Rear defroster/radio antenna connector. I've got nothing on these, this shit confused the hell out of me when I looked it up so whatever, I'll fuck this pig when I get to it, but marked and labeled! Some things I found online said that the s550's use the back glass window for their AM/FM Receiver. Pretty cool if that's the case! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Majority of the rear harness and quarter panel harnesses pulled out aside from the ABS Sensor going through the trunk floor and a few trunk harnesses Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Interior looking base aside from the door panel and harnesses Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr So with the windows down, and my dumbass not thinking ahead, I had to solve the problem of getting to the door harnesses while the window was 100% in the way. After some failed attempts to run jumper wires off a battery (thanks canbus trigger wires) I said fuck it and started pulling out bolts. After a few correctly identified bolts, the window glass slid right up! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr A couple more for the window track Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr A few here and there for the door handle and locking mechanism, and away we go! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr I pulled the window regulator off the S550 frame because I knew there had to be a simplistic way of making it all work. After inspecting the 550 and 95 regulators, I think I've got a plan, but I'll keep that in my back pocket until that time comes. Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Passenger door stripped: Check! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Started knocking out the same process on the drivers side and went fairly smooth. Made a bit of an oopsies and gave myself a pretty heft gash on my hand. Think I caught a nerve because certain movements my thumb would tingle. Oh well, that's what gauze and electrical tape is for right?! Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr AND SHES FUCKING NEKKKKKIDDDDD Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr This is a box of one full S550 of harnesses Untitled by TealNV, on Flickr Teal Things come next update!
  9. Lol nah, it’s on those Same smutty cobra R reps for the winter [emoji23] maybe once the SN gets rolling, the BBS will get put aside to grace it’s presence in the spring [emoji1693][emoji1693][emoji1693] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Sooooo Mach got Detailed and put away for the winter. Between the racecar, the whale cannon, and remodeling our house, there was no love left for the mach 😅😅 Updates to come when we do something with it in the spring!
  11. This is Intriguinggggg, Makes me wonder what the rear caliper off the 18's are since we have two sets sitting around now. hmmmmm
  12. Sad part is, they probably will just stay on the Mach since the SN will more likely than not end up on another 15/17 set up lol Gotta grow the collection! Even though we're out of space for them already hahah LOL No, unfortunately they will not be forward facing or have wasabi whirly bois on the ends of them! LTH Exhaust (subsidy of CPE) is expanding their product base, so they'll be taking the Mach to use for it's 4v development! Oh yeah, they're ATROCIOUSLY bad lol to be fair the 4" of wheel gap doesn't help anything but either way, they're terrible!
  13. I love the old school look of the RS's but I just can't help but wonder what they'd look like in yellow 🤤🤤🤤🤤 Yellow and White are the only colors that I feel like can pull off color matched wheels. I have the worlds most fucked up styling though so don't take anything I say to heart 🤣
