  1. I'm not sure if this is allowed, if it is not please let me know and I will remove this post. I have several projects going on along side of The Red Stallion. I share the progress of all of my builds on my FaceBook page. Please like and share it with your friends. www.facebook.com/nievesspeedshop/
  2. NEW TOY ALERT!!! Everlast Power Plasma 50s (The green one) fresh out of the box. Dual voltage 110v/220v 50 amp plasma cutter, with a port on the back that allows for CNC interface. I haven't eve plugged it in yet. I'm going to play wit it this weekend. Now I just need my CNC table to get here.
  3. ZF and BTR wiring diagrams and info needed.

    Tell that to the d-bags on the Facebook Barra pages. My god all ive heard is "stock ecu is ::insert pointless comment here:::" I finally gave up after posting this "I AM NOT INTERESTED IN THE STOCK COMPUTER. I AM NOT INTERESTED IN HEARING ABOUT THE VIRTUES OF THE STOCK COMPUTER. JUST ASSUME THAT I AM NOT LEGALLY ALLOWED TO OWN A STOCK COMPUTER. OR I'M ALLERGIC TO THE STOCK COMPUTER. OR ASSUME THAT THE STOCK COMPUTER TOUCHED ME INAPPROPRIATELY AS A CHILD." I should have expected crap responses on the cesspool that is Facebook. I really appreciate your help.
  4. ZF and BTR wiring diagrams and info needed.

    Thanks a ton!
  5. Below is copy and pasted from a thread that I started in another part of this forum. I am posting it here hoping more eyeballs that see this request will result in me getting the needed information. I'm in america working to spread the joy of the Barra to the world. I am working on a standalone ECU for the barra that is more affordable than the Haltech (about half the price). Let me start by saying I LOVE the Haltech, but it is not in my budget and I think I'm not alone. I need some help with this venture. I have already worked out the engine control part of the equation, but nobody want an ecu that will only run their engine and not their automatic transmission. If I cant figure out the ZF transmission control I will be offering an ECU for the 4 speed auto and manual transmissions. I need wiring diagrams and connector pinouts for the 4 speed automatic transmission (I believe its called the BTR) that comes with the BA/BF Falcon. I also need the wiring diagrams and connector pinouts for the ZF 6 speed automatic transmission. I have found very information on the ZF transmissions wiring and controls. I have heard people mention in several threads that the ZF has an internal transmission control unit built into the valve body. Does anyone have details on this? If that is true the wiring would be simple, and probably use the CAN/BUS system to communicate with the ECU. Thank you, in advance, for your help.

  7. Thanks bud, your build is looking good too. I've been keeping up with it.
  8. Thanks bud. It's slow going with work, school and family spare time is almost non-existent. It helps build suspense I guess lol.
  9. I know someone is going to ask why I modified a BA/BF front sump pan after going through the effort of getting a FG rear sump pan. I decided that I can modify the BA/BF pan without worrying about screwing it up since I have an extra. I have to notch the FG pan also. Doing it this way allows me to make the motor mounts and pin down the engine left/right and front/back. I'll modify the FG pan after the motor mounts are made. This way I cut it once and wont have to tweak it later if the motor mounts create an issue. I am probably being overly cautious but each oil pan costs me $300 USD after its shiped halfway across the world.
  10. I removed a "small" chunk from the BA/BF front sump oil pan. I also removed the front sway bar. Now it fits, even with the steering rack in place. IT FITS! The stock hood even closes (barely but that still counts). I am probably going to space the k-member down with 1 inch spacers. This should improve hood clearance, and help with my drive line angle a little. I'd like to see the motor "tilt" a little forward, nose down another 2 0r 3 degrees. 1 inch spacers are not going to give me any handling issues. I'll be able to adjust the suspension with back into spec. Adjustable coil overs, caster/camber plates, offset steering rack bushings and bump steer eliminators are common mods already really common. I have 3/4" spacers in my 5.4 4V 96 Cobra and it handles like its on rails.
  11. Here is a BA/BF front sump oil pan. You can see how much of a clearance issue there is with the front sump pan. I decided to try a different method. Instead of dealing with the whole motor I just bolted the oil pan to the transmission and used the stock transmission mount to locate the engine front to back. This made modifying the oil pan a LOT easier.
  12. Rear sump FG oil pans finally got here. Out with the stock heavy k-member and in with the new sexy. There were some initial fitment issues.
  13. I finally had a little time to work on this beast. I am still waiting on my FG rear sump oil pan so I can't do much. Just more wiring harness removal, A/C lines removed and a good thorough cleaning. Don't worry, the A/C will be making a comeback in the future after some custom lines are made. Top is dirty bottom is cleanish.
  14. I haven't had much time to work on anything but homework and studying. But I was able to sneak away from all of that and start cleaning up the engine bay. I pulled out the engine wiring harness and and the harness for the lights. I will be doing a full wire tuck and weld up all the unnecessary holes while the engine is out. I will also be making new brake lines and converting to hydro boost for a cleaner look.
