The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

Whatever...  There may be some who can be helped by my thread instead you troll me.  We are ok with that here.   :afit:

Here is the status.
SST Brakes lines are installed.
There was a leak with the power steering had to replace the Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) valve o-rings.  Will have lots of spares if you need any.
ABS Issue persisted but was fixed:  The relays were swapped and there were several wires that needed to be replaced.  After all that the ABS threw code 36 and the wheel sensor is on order.
The car should be DONE this week!

That was a ton of work to make the 1990 reliable.
 :P
