RockAuto also has it for $8.

For what it's worth - when I built the harness for the Holley system, I was able to find all the mating plugs for the sensors on RockAuto. The ones that plug into the crank sensor, cam sensor, TPS, IAC, all of them. They come with pigtails that you splice into your own wiring. Take a look there, might surprise you.

Meh. I already have a bet that it will get treed within 6 mo after he gets it back. So we'll just hold off on full bonkers motor

total newb Stock 6.0l but its got a a-team sheetmetal intake and 102mm tb. Stand alone harness and ict alt relocator a d oil cooler bypass.

It maybe a chinese i take but its sexy as fuck and very reasonably priced.

Its gona be bonkers more power but hopefully more driver friendly for him.

I spent quite a few hrs getting the car up and running as it was. Gave it back to him on a monday and wed he called and said he hated it. Make it better.

Ok billy. Here you go!

I guess it's EDIS. There's no EDIS module, whatever it is is integrated into the ECU like you find on later 2000ish Fords but yeah, basically EDIS.

It wouldn't be running on MS by now because I haven't had time to work on it. At least when I'm done with doing it this way it will "just work" whereas when you're done wiring up MS then you have to tune it.

The right tools are a pair of rusty needle nose visegrips, a freshly sharpened cold chisel, a good ol' prying screwdriver, and a 12 ounce ball peen hammer. Anesthetic is for pussies, just drink some brown liquor first. :-)
Nah he just needs an ice skate and a rock.

Tractor Supply sells them by the pound. It's awesome. Now I always have 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 inch locknuts on hand.

Godddammit!

TLDR: Hardware stores around me don't stock shit, and don't re-stock things when they are out of them and it pisses me off. And yes I'm on 4 gallons of paint for painting my truck, and will probably need at least 3 or 4 more gallons before it is all said and done!

stjames151 My wife says shes not sure if she's getting sick, but the boy, is showing ok on a night when she has an event. Mah freshly 4yo son sneaked outta bed about 2 hrs ago. Said his stomach hurt, but was snickering about knowing he should be in bed. I told him go back to bed, I'll check in 30min. 25 minutes later, he comes crying into the living room and almost immediately explodes with projectile puke...kitchen, hall, entry, living, bathroom, laundry, EVERYWHERE. I'm in socks, now wet socks, trying to direct him to a vessel. Managed to get him cleaned up, the house wiped down, wife shows up while I'm smoking my 1 cigarette/wk to get the smell outta my nose. It took a couple dust pans to clean it up. He's puked 3 times since and never before tonight.

....Kids are almost always awesome, and definitely a learning experience about what you're capable of.

He learned on a paved, flat, smooth bike path. I know I’m a terrible teacher of anything(-at least that’s my opinion). It took not letting him give up to get the wheels off. Like I said, lots of tears, etc.

Between the harness from the '94 and the harness from an '00 Taurus I'm short at least one pigtail so I guess that means I have to go to the pick'n'pull. It's about time since I've been living here more than a year but haven't been to it even though it's 30min away.
I might have a bunch of the EEC-IV stuff you need, my SHO motor came from a '94 Taurus and I kept all the electrical bits. Didn't need them because it runs off a Holley EFI with sequential fuel and spark via GM LS coils

I can look if you tell me where on the harness it would come from, also have the coil pack and ignition module as well if that's compatible.
