CA Sbf fc3s drift car

Hey guys thought id post some pics of my car and answer any questions for someone in the process of doing the same. I just finished getting the car drivable. Still plan on doing the cage and bodywork to wrap it all up. Car is a 1990 s5 turbo 2 i got as a shell. Engine is out of a 94 Mustang Gt kept it fuel injected.

Did you go with the granny's speed shop kit?

Just curious if it works with the different sized T5 bellhousing from the SN95 mustangs. Also is there any differences in wiring up the 1994 engine vs one from a foxbody?

Yes I'm using a granny's kit in the car. I had very minimal issues with the kit. My engine is from an sn95 and my transmission is off an 85 mustang. I had to add a piece to my trans mount because the holes didn't line up. Easy fix. As far as wiring it should be very similar. I used the guidelines granny speed shop provides as well as some other info around the internet. Right now I'm currently running a custom wiring set up I made on my own tho.

Looking at the thermostat housing..it is higher than your rad and the rad cap..so you should address that or you will get a big pocket of air in your upper hose.

yes sir. This was addressed by getting an inline radiator cap on the upper pipe. No cooling issues whatsoever.

Power steering.

I am in the process of putting a 302 in my fc. Just removed the rotary and I'm trying to decide to buy grannies kit or not. The power steering lines sit up high on my RHD rack, as i remember the original LHD rack had less lines. Would you be able to post some oil pan clearance pics? I have read posts that say grannies kit puts the engine to far forward I'm assuming because of oil pan clearance. Thank you.
