    I’ve seen this photo from another site, so to answer would be cheating. :) Really cool you took pictures of it at the time though, since one would be hard pressed to find something original like that...

    No idea. Initially it sounded like someone unfamiliar driving manual riding the hell out of a clutch. I already expected more RPM needed to get started, but it really needed some. Originally I was...

    I figured it would be worthwhile to give this thread a bump with just some collected driving data on the Roadrunner converter.

    So the unit is indeed a lockup unit that will fit on a stock input...

    Just my :2cents: on the TPS: If the shop replaced it and didn’t verify if it was in range, it’ll drive funny.

    IIRC, closed throttle should be 0.5-1.25v (usually the I’ll aim for 0.95v when...

    Yeah, it was the Taurus mega fuse. 175 amp deal, IIRC. I went up to a Vulcan car, and just kinda started yanking and pulled the whole thing right up to the fuse block, then took the mega fuse with...

    87gtVIC nailed it. I installed it when I first put the 3G on the car before I even officially owned it. I do need to go back and re-loom and clean up the cable routing as it goes. The old loom cracks...

    Which stall rating did you go with? We’re you preferable to the 2500 RPM stall, or something else?

    Wiring is very much the same, just a different connector, and one less wire. Essentially the...

    Drove the car Sunday and Monday, then parked it after it started slow cranking. Took the battery with me to work, and its okay. The alternator, not so much. Bad diodes, recorded over 105mV of ripple...

    I'd argue maybe an hour and half to two hours if you're not working super fast. I recall it being a little tedious getting that bolt in place between the door frame and the vent window glass assembly...

    I did the swap on my '87. Nick did one side, I did the other. Unfortunately, I don't have much detail pictures of it.

    The short and dirty version off the top of my head was to:

    '87 came home from the shop today. Johnson's took care of getting everything straight, so it shifts good again. Higher stall torque converter is gonna take some getting used to, but behaves fine in...

    When I separated my spacer from the intake, there was a fair amount of beating with a hammer and screw driver involved. I snapped the studs off and it was down hill from there. Working the spacer...

    Don’t quote me exactly since I’d need to find the title to make sure, but I think the official mileage was 111,896. I usually just round and say it had 112K when I started.

    A 65 will “go” where a 64 should. However, there’s a little nub towards the header panel side of the battery tray that won’t let the battery sit level. My ‘87 had a 65 in it when I got it, but I lost...

    Given the slight shift in the conversation regarding warranty/longevity, the Group 64 in the '87 is almost four years old. Assuming it comes back from the shop without showing any signs of trouble,...
