Depends if you carry the 5gal VP jugs with you.As for BW and CW, I'd love to go out there, but easy E85 access is the problem.
BW isn't too bad with e85 being a Shell on Gosford Rd in West Bakersfield, which is about 25 miles east of the track. Make sure you "sign up" for the fuel rewards program to get 5c off. Not that they don't validate, I've signed up like, everytime I've been there, all you get is a text, and of course, 5c off. There is an e85 station around the Templin Highway or Smoky Bear exit as you cross the Grapevine.
CW isn't too bad, either, but a little bit further as CW is like an hour from everything. They have e85 at a Chevron in Indio off Jackson that you can fill up, but I'd think about grabbing a few 5gal VP jugs to replace what you use per session, but If you're doing two days, you might have to make a night trip to refill it and them to the top. Or switch to a flex on the way out, the prices at the track aren't too terribly bad, actually.
Perfect topic for the 6th gen forum This is where my memory gets fuzzy as I've had a few 55gal drums of booze through me since I had to think about that last. I do recall that when it was the hotness back in the day was to pretty much transplant as much as you could, as the engine, ecu, and even the dash between the SN-95 and Fox were so similar. I want to say that I was using my 98 Cobra with the 98 Computer and 98 dash, and while I didn't get the cool integrated boost gauge that the 03-04 had, it worked with something like an xCal2. Saying all that though, there were plenty of similarities between the 96-98 Cobra, 99,01 Cobra, and 03-04 Cobra. Was the Shinoda based on a 2v PI motor (please not a 96-98 NPI) or the 99 Cobra 4v? If it was based on a GT, I'd assume it might be best to try and bring as much Terminator stuff over as I could, but if it was based off a 99 Cobra, I'd figure you'd be very similar to my 98 Cobra, where it's perhaps just a chip/tune and perhaps a sensor or two. It'd almost be slightly easier, as the 98 was the last of the throttle cable with the 99 converting to drive by wire, returnless, and a whole host of other things that aren't relevant.He now has a Terminator motor installed and need some help. I don't want to drive anyone crazy but some basic help would be appreciated.
1. Should he have gotten both the main harness that mounts to the fire wall on the driver's side and the harness that goes through the passenger sides of the firewall and connects to the ECU?
2. If those two harness and the ECU come from the Cobra the Terminator engine came from does he need anything else from the donor car?
