windstar mount

That van mount is really nice, I may have to go hunt for one of those. It looks like there is a lot more support for the computer. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for posting the pictures of the Windstar mount in place! That looks awesome and is a great option. Here are 2 others that I've been planning to share:

The one on the left is from a 2003 Ford Escape. It is made out of metal and is completely enclosed (no open hole in the back like the Explorer mount). It is about the same size as the Explorer case and is more of a flush mount like the Explorer.

They are super easy to remove. Once the face plate is off you just need to pop up the plastic cowl that covers the wiper linkage up and you can get to the two 8mm bolts on the side. The little bracket that is bolted to the back of it can be removed as well.

The one on the right came from a mid 90's fullsize van. It was meant to be mounted vertically but it seems sturdy enough to mount horizontally. It doesn't mount as deep as the Explorer or Escape brackets do. It sticks out an inch or so like the Windstar bracket does. The vertical mount might help for someone that has A/C taking up some real estate.

Also, I guess it's time to announce the price increase. As much I try to keep things as affordable as possible to everyone, I need to raise the price from $450 plus shipping to $500 plus shipping to offset my increased costs. This is for new customers only.

When I first started doing this, it was more of a hobby thing for me and still is. You guys have been great and have been keeping me super busy! I never really expected it to take off as much as it has. It is to the point where I have seriously considered quitting my day job to give this the attention it deserves and reduce my backlog. However, it's hard to let go of the stability of a steady paycheck and I'm not quite to the point where I would be comfortable enough to make that plunge.

Having said that, the harness work is VERY time consuming and not exactly very profitable. All said and done, I might make minimum wage doing them. The biggest reason I do them (aside from the fact that I actually enjoy it) is that I make decent money in a small amount of time doing the computer flashing. That doesn't mean that I won't do a harness for you if you are going to go to a local tuner. It does mean that you won't get the discount that I provide doing both services together.

As far as going to your local tuner goes, I can't tell you what they can and can't do. So, you need to quiz them rather extensively on what their abilities are with the Explorer computers.

When I was shopping around for tuning software to do these I found the support for the Explorer to be very minimal from all of the big name companies. Their focus was on getting you a little more HP or a little more MPG on a stock vehicle, not swapping it in to a vehicle that doesn't have the OBD2 provisions.

I ended up paying someone to develop the software that I use and to focus on the needed settings that allow me to do the things that the big name guys don't or can't. As a result, I get messages on here from people that found me through Google to fix things after their dyno session. I also get a few from people that bought hand held tuners that will not even disable PATS properly. So, quiz your tuner on his abilities extensively before you dyno it, that way you don't have to send it to me to get it fixed later.

I was going to post up about the fullsize van option. I used it ~2 years ago and it fit perfect for my application. It's easy to get out of the van as well....right above the gas pedal.

Thanks Mike! We did take the night off. I figured since we worked through both of our birthdays and V-day that I better take her out to dinner before takes me out in my sleep.

We just had a nice dinner and saw Last Vegas.

I am looking to convert to a 5.0 efi and love this post, The question I have from reading tons of other posts on converting is will the Explorer 5.0 fit under a stock hood without using a mustang intake? If so I'll start looking for a explorer tomorrow.

Since no one has answered up I'll give you my take in this. My setup is all Explorer. It all fits fine under my stock hood with a 2" body lift. The only thing close is the oil filler neck which I have seen another guy shorten in his post. Best I can tell everything else looks like it will clear.

I'm running the Explorer intake and stock 1968 body mounts and it all fit under the hood. I did have to trim the top off the bracket that holds the power steering pump but other than that nothing is hitting the underside of the hood.

All also add that I'm running stock type motor mounts that have the bolt that goes through them so they can not come apart. I got them at AutoZone but I think one of the vendors sells, or used to sell them. I do not believe the heavy duty mounts that the vendos sell will work with a stock hood or no body lift.

Thanks Broncoman1972 and Broncokak. That helped make up my mine to go for it. Are the two of you running the flashed computer from EFI Guy with no issues?

I'm not. I did my swap back in 05 and converted everything back to mustang. My next one will be all Explore though.

I did have Garry re flash my pcm but I am still working on the swap so can't speak for how it runs. I'm sure it'll be fine though. He's done plenty like mine for others here.

I'm have been running Garry's PCM in mine with no issues at all. It runs absolutely perfect. It's a DD and I have a few trail runs on it now. I have a 2" body lift with stock motor mounts. I had to lower the Explorer PS reservoir a little, and the coil packs mounted in the stock location, just barely rub on the bottom of the hood.

Thank you guy's for the great feed back. It will help me out a bunch when I tackle this. Looks like I know what I will be doing for the next month or so.
