    How does the act connect? The old way of tapping into computer came with kit but roush install instructions don't detail it. Vmp sent old harness with ends to tap into pcm. Is that what is supposed to be used? Roush says something about plugs behind the heads but there's nothing in the kit to do that.

    Secondly, where did you mount the IC pump?

    No pics and I came in.

    It's the sensor on the passenger side lower Intake (about midway, next to fuel rail). What did you do with it and it's wires.

    OK thanks. Being as it's vmp not roush, even though they share a lot of things, there are differences. I mounted mine on a bracket on drivers side where horns are. Bad to move the horns.

    Got in tough with vmp (even though it's a weekend!) and got an answer. I do have the wrong wire connection. They gonna get the right one out to me tomorrow.

    Thanks man! Definitely missing that. One of the guys at vmp was awesome enough to help me sort it out via email on a Saturday night. He's gonna fix it up and get it to me asap. I had to borrow a truck for work Monday and Tuesday but hopefully it'll get here for Wednesday and I can get it closed up.

    I never once said it was my car....

    But yeah. Several things delayed the original plan, including finishing my factory five roadster, building a shop and equipping it (100 amp service, full air piping and real compressor, welding outlets, water, cabinets, work benches, 110 feet of driveway and pad for washing cars etc) get expensive! Plus refinishing baby girls room. It all delayed the original plan for LE -#275 for awhile. But finally got around to getting it done the way I envisioned and building what ford hasn't but I want.
