the tps voltage can increase your throttle response. it wont make a huge difference but every little bit helps.

All the 3.8L Fords from 90-95 seem to have them, Sables, Lincolns, Taurus’ you get the idea. Easy to pull, two bolts and clip the wires.

I pulled my electric fan from a 2.3L Mustang.

When you installed it on your 5.0 did it have any clearance problems? does any know the correct length for the short belt ?

you can bypass the smog pump with it still on the car but why not just remove everything? it will lighten your front end and free up space in your engine bay

You won't be able to run the stock catted h pipe without the smog pump... reason being the smog pump keeps the cats cool and without it the stock h pipe tends to over heat and clog or catch on fire.

Not sure exactly how long you have to run without the smog pump to do this but i've seen it happen to a friend and it was pretty damn funny. If your just looking for a shorter belt for the few times a year your at the strip then you might be ok with it I don't know but i'd prob just opt to do without a belt all together. Have a friend pop the belt off, do your burn out and stage. Make your run pull over and put belt back on then drop back to pits/staging lanes. You need pretty healthy battery for that though

i think it will be fine i will keep the stock belt on around the street and use the short one on the track but catching on fire doesnt sound to good :(
