1996 GT's Vortech V2 install

I'll be posting pictures along the way. I haven't seen many threads in detail on the install with a FMIC setup. So I'll try my best to provide a decent one.

Just for fun, I'll post the prices of what I've paid for everything so you can see what us Canadians struggle with when it comes to cars LOL.

Vortech V2SQ with Bracket and SS lines - 1300$
20160131_162346 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

Brand new FRPP EV1 42lb injectors (Rare AF to find brand new) - 240$
20160213_131650 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

SCT BA2400 MAF - 175$
20160201_164003 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

3.25" Pulley (Picture coming soon) - 50$

Autometer 3301 Boost Gauge - 120$
20160809_123215 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

AEM UEGO Wideband (Used) - 175$
20160811_083811 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

Autometer Clockpod - 55$
20160810_134510 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

DIY 4" Power pipe - 100$
20160807_225721 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

Mishimoto R Line Intercooler - 360$
20160811_175535 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

Intercooler Piping (Picture coming soon) - 150$

Aeromotive 340LPH Fuel pump (Strainer was adjusted properly after this picture, dont worry) - 150$
20160512_111440 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr
20160507_131003 by Justin Lehman, on Flickr

Oil Return fittings (Picture coming soon) - 15$

Tial Q 50mm BOV 2psi supercharger specific (Picture coming soon) - 400$


My current questions are:

What size belt should I run on a 6 rib setup with a 3.25" pulley and stock drive pulleys?

For punching a hole in the oil pan for the return, should I start with a very small drilled hole? Or should I just start with a punch?

Install will be starting in about a week or two. Stay tuned.

The exchange rate kills me lol for ever 1 USD it costs me 1.30 CAD lol. Shit hets 30% more expensive which is why I took so long to source out many of these parts.

Going to get my wideband bung welded onto my exhaust today, and waiting for my BOV and intercooler piping in the mail.

Thankfully that part came with the fuel pump assembly as that hose is not cheap at all lmao.

Worth every penny, too. lol


Parts store gave me the wrong hose last time I swapped pumps. I took the car to my home town around 2.5 hours away. Had to drop the tank 4 times on the side of the interstate to limp it home until I could get the right submersible hose.


Wanna know how you get good and quick at dropping the tank?????

AFR gauge is installed, need to take it to my local mustang shop to clean up my shitty welders weld lmao. Also need him to straighten out my tail pipes. It goes from 14.7-16.8 at idle, dumps down to 11-12 at WOT and 14.7-15.9 at cruising. Kinda unsure how I feel about the clock pod still but its staying as of right now. Forget to get a picture, will take one later and post.

Lmao at least my entire engine was built a few years ago when the dollars were on par. I built the shortblock for 3000ish and the top end I have probably 1000 into.

I hate dropping the tank lmao. I get really pissed when I get it all installed to find out I had a pin hole on the rubber hose lol.
