if you get parts cut all fancy like make extras of that frame rail mount that picks up the crossmember bolts. I'd buy a set to make b230 mounts.

Good idea, and will do. I plan on getting these "fancy cut" for sure using computer-CAD designs after I do the cardboard-CAD mockups and converge on a final geometry.

Cool - I'll get crackin' on those.

I ordered a cheap new Denso AC compressor from RockAuto the other day. Showed up today so I offered it up to the engine and did a quick test-fit with a piece of 2.5" exhaust from the Mustang turbo kit. Looks like we will have enough room, despite the compressor being larger than I counted on. I think I also figured out a way to snake the driver's side downpipe past the steering rack and column. Will also need to think about using the stock Mustang power steering pump, as there's a chance I can make everything fit with it - the pump is quite small.






Floppy pipe...



Full support.

That's tidy having the compressor way down there.

Yeah it looks like it'll work out pretty well. This car never had AC so I'll have to add the evaporator and everything else too.

I wish the PS pump was down as low on the driver's side but unfortunately that area is occupied by oil filter and coolant port business. The pump ends up much higher on that side and may pinch my forward-facing log manifold too much. I'll mock up the pulley in cardboard and play around with it. The pump itself is pretty small - likely only the pulley that would be an issue.

If I don't use the Mustang pump then the backup plan is a remote mounted electro-hydraulic pump from a modern Mini. Similar to what the MR2 and some Mazdas used.
