Im posting this here because most of my questions will be for the 3L. I have Mostly everything almost ready to go. engine and trans will be going in hopefully this weekend. Most of my questions will be on hooking up the fuel and vacuum lines. Vac lines im not horribly worried on. Mostly the Fuel lines. This vehicle is a Early 99 Return.

I Have new Ground control suspension going in, New wider tires/rims and bought a HMS Transmission From PRT. Very excited for all this to come together.




Saying goodbye!!




When i bought this car it was a ATX With remote Start. I have since installed a MTX back in 2011. Come to find out all these wires are put in ghetto like. A few had melted. so i ripped out the entire aftermarket system and re-soldered and put heat shrink tubing on.







First Time using a Plasma Cutter. Very Fun. Highly recommended. very fast. Grinded down the rough spots after. Jason's and PRT's how to was awesome. so Thank you.





Friends Uncle Did An Amazing job on the Welding.












And this is what it looked like back when i Bought it lol.

17x8. sadly they were out of 17x9 when i ordered. I figured id just order 2 17x9 in future if i planned on running even wider tires. offset i believe was +19

Figured id do a little update with some pictures.














Its getting there. slowly. I didnt touch the car hardly in July and August. Was too hot and Me being too busy. Next is figuring out Fuel. I have the block to covert it from return to returnless, but I think i need a adapter to plug it into the fuel rail? Here is a picture.

Well would it be year specific? I got that one off a used escape or so they told me. And my taurus rail bends the other way.

figuring out these vacuum lines suck on the st220 lol. I either have too small hoses or not enough length.

Your Build looks a lot like mine... But I kept the SVT intake on my 3.0. Just got mine fired up last week. Are you up and running? What did you to about a tune? Is somebody willing to take on a V6 tune over there?

Nope not up an running yet. Literally got my fuel hooked up today. Ordered parts and when they came they were wrong even though the picture showed that they were the correct part, so i had to send some stuff back. Finally had the correct parts and installed everything. Installed the st220 for the first time tonight. Have a few vacuum lines to figure out yet.

As for tune that wont get done until next year. 75% sure Ill be taking my car to Smokey's in Ohio. They seem to be the few who know what they are doing on these machines.
