    Where'd I leave off here...
    I tried out a set of Dapper lights.

    I started working on new ones and have them installed now, but another set is in the works, have to modify behind the lights to fit them in but I'll see later.


    Both sets function as high/low

    Does the horn tie into the cruise wiring? I read that somewhere but forget.
    Since swapping to the Mustang PCM, I have had no horn, is it just coincidence or is there a reason?

    yes, but no.

    Cruise powers through the horn relay. Losing the horn with an ECM swap is not likely related. The horn relay lives under the ECM relay, might want to give it a look to see if its gone dead. I've lost one twice on my car. It gets water into it and dies.

    On a box, yes. Cruise (At least the steering wheel buttons) gets power from the horn fuse. Every time I forget about that and honk at someone my fuse pops and then I have no cruise or horns. Temp fix is leave needle nose pliers and a few 20A fuses in the car.

    I have a question about binary editor and Quarterhorse.
    I have a new tune from Willie at dirtydirtyracing and the car is running, AFR is 14.4-5 but when connected to my laptop, none of the gauges(on the "dashboard") show anything.
    I can see the chip with my program in it, am I missing something?

    Sounds great! What’s your rear gear and what are you doing transmission wise?

    Damn now i really want to get my 347 going. What cam are you running? Mine is going together with Eddy Performer 5.0 heads(cali smog bullshit), Crane Compucam 2030, and Incon Twin Turbos, soonish. Theoretically all smog legal crap, although it's likely going to take some tuning to get it all right. I'm no tuning guru, although the turbo kit came with a Moates Quarterhorse, although i know as much to do with it as i do a fucking space shuttle. Probably take it to a tuner and have a chip done once everything is working.

    As for transmissions, I was going to get a "HD" rebuild at a local shop and probably use a silverfox valve body. By the time i did the math, i decided i'd be better off just buying a trans directly from silver fox. Already have a converter and the price Dan at Silverfox quoted me was as good or better than the local rebuild and buying SF valve body. Complete i'll be out the door around 3 grand. VB alone is 5-600 and the rebuild was 1800-2k without 4r70 wide gearset. Kind of a no-brainer. Send them an email with your setup, he'll want more detail probably but is a super nice guy.
