The Torque Converter actually gave us a scare on that pull, you can see the dip.
I guess between the two of us there’s about 2400 crank HP… we can take bets to see whose stock transmission makes it through the entire summer lmao…

With the arrival of the Pierburg CWA400 electric water pump, I was able to start getting some of the new cooling setup going. While I'm not 100% sure I love this controller. It looks very simple, but packs a lot of programming features. Unfortunately, you program it like a gym locker combination lock. The factory programming seems to be exactly what I need without any changes. The dial sets the mode and temperature. Also allows you to crank the pump to 100% in a test mode.

The electric water pump setup will help me clear room for the dual charge pipes, and also help with cooling the motor down. Changing the pump differential location will allow me to send the coldest coolant to the turbos and return that coolant directly back to the radiator, instead of sending it mixed back to the motor. The ultimate goal is to be able to plug the Mustang into my dual alternator F350 in between runs and run the fans and water pump with the engine off.

The little yellow square controller isn't gonna fly though. There's no need to see that information unless you want to know it. The car coolant temp will be the first indicator I would look at. So I decided to hide the controller out of sight. I removed the top layer of the controller case to facilitate integrating it into a car panel. Unfortunately, there are very few flat sections of visible panel in the Mustang. I literally assumed I'd have my choice of locations. The best I could come up with is in the top of the A pillar. Something I can see but won't be in the direct line of sight. I machined a little aluminum escutcheon for the drilled hole for the multifunction dial. The LEDs are 4mm apart so I put the 0.050" holes in to align with the LED. This plastic does not cut cleanly with end mills or drill bits. I secured the case to the A pillar cover with a urethane plastic cement. More to come as I start installing the harness.
