I know it will be a pain because I did it on mine but forget a cable and go for linkage. Forte has a kit and there are a couple of lists floating around from before he offered his. Otherwise lokar has good cables except for their SS braided version. Get the plain black one.
I did that swap this winter. I created some of my own challenge (I am my own worst enemy sometimes) as I had changed the stock system to front pull cable. I did not like the sharp "S" that the rear pull required the throttle cable to be in.
But when I installed the Sniper everything was designed for a rear pull cable. To make it more challenging, the sniper is wider than any of the other throttle bodies so some of the aftermarket brackets that could just be flipped and used from the front would not clear the linkage.
Can't you just cut the cable at the TB end, and use an end attachment that uses set screws to fasten to the cable. There are several varying types of trunnions available. Should be one compatible with your new set up. Lokar makes several types.
You might also mount the cable bracket, (or make a new one), further back, to allow for the length, if it looks like the outer cable housing is to long, to still get WOT on the cable.
On my Mustang project, I’m going to run a fast EFI stack setup. Looking for opinions or experience running the pressure regulator back by the tank.
I’ve got the fuel system laid out and am using a LS filter/regulator and have it mounted back near the fuel tank. A real short line for the return...
Was thinking about trying to unbolt the motor mounts & sliding the engine slightly forward on my engine hoist to gain some space to drop the transmission.
Looks like the engine can move forward about 5" if I uncouple the steering shaft.
LOL, I don't even have the kit yet - but Mike @ https://fortesparts.com is doing some great deals...
I've been watching this forum for a while and realized the scope creep, but never thought I'd be buying parts for a car I...
