I think the harness was a one off as his business is importing Jeep and 4wd stuff. I just happened to find his listing on ebay.
Anthony is the fellas name, his website www.j-p-r.com, trading as Jeeepart in Harvey Bay.
Good luck
Greg

Me too, mine was passed last week in VIC, so not sure if NSW Engineers will pass them or not.

Hope that all is going well now Greg. You seem to have it sorted. My Windsor and 'box were inserted today on their new mounts and the car is all now back from the painters. At the exhaust shop tomorrow! I am doing a similar thing with a cone filter on the Windsor.

Hey Merv, great progress. Did you do your own prep or did you get the painters to do it? I am not sure whether to do it myself or get someone who is responsible for the finish to do it? Not sure if I am talking about a lot of extra dollars from the painters if they do it?

Ah Mando, thats the Emmission Sticker for the engine. you need one of these.

It must be valid for your particular engine -I got mine from Holden for my engine VY series II etc. Cost 5 bucks. You need it for engineering.

I got mine registered with my patented "Elephant Dick" intake system. The engineer passed it no problem.

It was designed to catch cold high pressure air traveling under the car. Unfortunately any extra HP it may have gained was not worth the embaresment caused when the hood was opened



Cheers

Thanks on the filter stuff, I'm awaiting my MAF from the US then I'll look around for one of those cool Elephants' Dicks.........
it's said that the size of the muffler on Nissan Skylines is inversely proportional to the drivers' appendage.
Maybe the same for air intakes Aussie Mike?

On another subject, the throttle body on my car has no Idle Air Control solenoid fitted to it, there is a cover plate on the side that looks like where it should be.

I take it that we need one of these things, there's a plug on the engine loom ready to connect it to. Will the standard Mustang one fit here and work OK?

Great news Merv, need some pics ASAP

Greg

I am not sure about the Idle Air Control solenoid Greg. I suspect that it may be needed. But perhaps ask Michael via Harrisons as he has a lot of experience with the Mustang motor. Posted a few pics after painting.
