    Hey guys, I'm having a hell of a time drumming up info with pics included to see how guys have done a bunch of this stuff. I've followed the threads I could here, but still tons of threads with missing pics.

    I have done months worth or reading and research, I am now well into it and in the process. I can't see pics so I am now wondering how exactly you fellas mounted the heat exchanger and tubing up front behind the bumper. Also the Ac condenser if you have. I have the all the factory brackets from the 03 to hopefully use.

    It seems I'm about 5-8 years behind the times with this swap. People are now big into Coyote swaps. Basically every thread on the internet I find has expired pics now and white boxes saying pic unavailable. Modular Fords is pretty useless too, all the threads there are also old with no pics and just reading about what someone has done is hard to picture more often than not. I've posted threads of my own, but have zero replays. I wish there were already other terminator swapped cars to just go look at and see in person, but I'm about to have the 1 and only terminator swapped fox in central or western Canada. People just don't do this and haven't done this up here at all due to severe lack of salvage Svt cars for drivelines to use and shear cost of buying one out of the US and shipping it north.

    Thanks again for your time Fellas. Jeremy

    My brother has a Terminator swapped ‘86GT running with a Mach1 computer and a Detail Zone wiring harness. It works great and has an OBD2 port.
    He used factory Hydroboost brakes.
    If you have all the Terminator drivetrain stuff it can make sense, but at this point a Coyote swap is definitely the better answer IMO.
    I was going to Terminator swap my ‘93 Cobra but after planning it out, the Coyote swap just makes more sense.

    I got all my stuff from a car that a friend in British Columbia owned. It had 28,000km on it when he was T-boned hard in the drivers side and put in the hospital. He bought the car back from insurance and I bought the driveline off of him. Minus the shell and IRS. I did get every stitch of wiring from the 03 though front to back.

    I bought a MM Kmember, and hydroboost conversion with hard lines to wrap up that end of things and keep it simple. I am not a wiring guy at all, and seen a car burn down at the track due to bad wiring so I farmed that end of it out to a shop that specializes in mustangs that has done several conversions. He depinned and repinned most of the plugs, thinned out all the associated wiring for ABS brakes and emissions, and add the OBD 2 port for under the dash.

    Good deal. With all of that, you have a good plan.
    My brother makes 1000hp on a turbocharged 100% stock longblock, so the Terminator does have a few advantages :)
    As far as your questions, it’s all really custom hot ridding at this point. You can clean up the engine bay with Scott Rod panels and wire tuck, and really show off the engine and supercharger.
    Post some pics of what you’re working with.
    Here’s some of ours several years back, but we still have them. I’ll try and look for a good engine pic when his was Eaton equipped. It was super clean, best conversion I’ve ever seen.

    Here is a few pics of the wiring almost complete. The dash harness is back in now and the dash was reinstalled this last Friday. I'll get some more pictures this week. The last pic is what was left and done with my salvage 03 cobra.
