95 V6 TO 5.0 SWAP, RIGHT BANK RUNNING LEAN NOW
« on: March 26, 2008, 10:02:57 PM »
I CHANGED MY V6 STANG OVER TO THE 5.0 AND DURING THE SWAP I GOT RID OF THE CATS AND WENT WITH BK HEADERS AND AN OFF ROAD H PIPE WITH MAC PRO DUMPS TO END IT OFF. I ALSO REMOVED THE SMOG PUMP AND A/C AND WENT WITH THE PULLEYS TO RELAE THESE ITEMS. THE PROBLEM IS NOW I AM ALWAYS RUNNING LEAN ON THE RIGHT BANK AND AFTER WARMING UP WHEN I GET ON IT THERE SEEMS TO BE ALOT OF EXCESS SMOKE. IS THERE ANY FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM THAT ANYONE KNOWS OF OR HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE?? IM FRUSTRATED BECAUSE I PUT A BIT OF IME AND MONEY INTO THIS SWAP AND I WANNA MAKE IT RUN RIGHT.  SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!  ???

Was the 5.0 exhibiting this problem before?

NO THE MOTOR RAN STRONG AND HAD NO SMOKE ISSUES THATS WHY I CANT FIGURE IT OUT, IT ALSO IS THROWING AN CHECK ENGINE FAULT BECAUSE THE LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON. I CHECKED IT OUT AND THATS WHERE I FOUND IT WAS THE RIGHT BANK RUNNING LEAN. I DONT KNOW IF MAYBE ITS A COMPUTER THING BECAUSE I REMOVED THE CATS AND ALL THE EMISSIONS STUFF?? WHEN ITS FIRST STARTED IT RUNS STRONG WITH NO SMOKE THAT IS ANOTHER THING THAT CONFUSES ME. IT DOESNT SMOKE UNTILL THE ENGINE IS WARMED UP TO RUNNING TEMP.

If it was mine, I'd take it in to the Ford house and have a mechanic check it out.  Those damn computer run engines can't be tested by anything but their 4 thousand dollar electronic device.
