Some much needed updates. Have completely taken apart the engine down to the long block. All parts have been cleaned and stored away. At this point I’ve gone through all my stuff and figured out what I need to keep, sell, and beginning to order what I need to buy. I have some FTBR, redline goods, and McLeod goodies arriving in a couple weeks or less. That will be the start of a lot of parts (especially with Black Friday right around the corner). Waiting on my drivetrain to sell so I can pull it and get this car torn apart - then it’ll get really exciting.
In all of her stock glory. Engine looks good for the most part. Unfortunately looks like one of the pulleys got pushed into the timing chain cover somehow, so I’ll be needing to source a new one

Thanks, the problem I've spent all day figuring out is how to utilize my 01 body harness from PCM back with everything from the 04 forward including the PCM, cluster, PATS, dash harness, PCM harness. The problem is basically how the CCRM powers the FPDM and IFS which is completely different on the 03/04s. What that means for me is i'll be following some advice from other forums on cobra swaps in GT's. Basically the 99-01 cobras were wired in the rear exactly like the GT's....it's a lot of info but may do a write up on this process since this was something that took me a while to figure out for myself.The pumps will plug in no problem. I ran 04 pumps in my 01 and it was plug and play.
Well my whole goal was to take everything from the donor car and put it in this car, making the swap easier in theory. I also wanted the correct cluster and therefore PCM. So far the only trouble I've had is slight modification to the body harness. Perhaps I could modify the 01 harness with this drivetrain, but I already have everything from the donor. Plus, that harness went with the original engine to the new buyer.What's your reason for wanting to run the 03/04 ECM?
