I don't have much to post except current photos I've taken. I'll upload more as the truck progresses. Just currently waiting on a donor vehicle.

the 98-2000 pats system is easily added to the non pats trucks as long as you have all of the donor......... don't be scared of pats

There is also the use of an aftermarket Three-Wire Harness and an earlier Computer, say a Mustang Setup; then there is no PATS ! Also, using an older model 5.0 Manual Trans Computer allows you to select different transmissions, than something the computer wants to see !

My '88 5.0L Swap, used a '93 Computer from a manual trans Mustang, I ended up with a C4 Auto but could have selected a number of different transmissions.

Just a different point of view and IF you intend to get this vehicle Inspected... then there is another set of rules to go by !

I used an A9P EEC from the Foxbody platform, made for an automatic, with my T5Z transmission. It works flawlessly. Everyone said I would have to go with an A9L from a manual trans Mustang but it didn't make a difference.

I like the Ford DIS ignition too much to go back to the dizzy, the full obd2 computer is not terrible to swap to these days with the ability to tune the factory PCM for around $400 to remove the trans functions and some emissions stuff. I am thinking of going this route and converting my BII from automatic to a M5OD-R2 would be fun to drive the BII as a stick again

I am a "run what ya brung" type, I like all project mild or wild and I love to see what people come up with, there are 50 ways to skin a cat
