After a long break I've started to tinker with the Falcon again. I've been gathering parts for a while.

I have all of the parts needed for the ignition. The new ignition with be an updated Ford EDIS system. EDIS is short for Electrinic Distributorless Ignition System. This was used on most Ford cars and trucks for more than 10 years. There are four coils which fire two plugs at a time. Only one of the plugs will be at the top of the power cycle. The other is wasted which is why this is refered to as a wasted spark ignition system.

I just recently started aquiring parts for the fuel system. The attachments show what they look like. The intake manifold is an Edelbrock EFI unit based on a Super Vitor racing manifold. The injectors are 29lb high Z pico units also from Elelbrock. The throttle body is a 4150 style four barrel 1000cfm from Edelbrock. It has a built in throttle position sensor (TPS) and idle air control valve (IAC).

The engine management computer will be a home built Megasquirt V3 unit with bank to bank fire fuel. You can see it mounted under the dash in one of the photos along with a lot of wire for the varios sensors, ignition, and fuel control.

    It is a MegaSquirt 2 kit from diyautotune.com. It required assemply of the entire board. There is a lot of soldering invilved.

    It used one wideband O2 sensor. I could use two. I could even use eight if I realy wanted to. I wanted to start simple. I mounted the sensor aboyr six inches behind the X-pipe.

    I'm hoping to start it for the first time sometome mid-November. I'm waiting for my new fuel pump and I needed to order a new IAC valve. Both are on backorder.

    No. The whole thing is programed and monitored from a laptop.
