Brave New World (Get-R-Done)

I admire you guys bravery for even mentioning a (I think it's called stand alone system) or a simple wiring system to make the modern EFI engine run.
I've posted the same subject on several other sites with no replies. I did get one fellow saying "he'd never heard of any one wanting to do that before".
I want to do the same thing but just as cheap and generic as I can get for a engine break in (test run) stand to run a 4.2L V6 and a 4.9L inline. Both F-150 engines. I support your ideas and development. But for me the cost HAS to be minimul. I do not want install a untested engine in a chassis. TOO MUCH LABOR getting the thing back in a cab forward designed truck. I too love the EFI. I Don't ever want to go back to carburator days. bl2009

I am currently installing a 96 4.6 engine into my 66 f100 with a cv suspension.....I am just starting to even look at wiring as its my weakest point of my skills..,
I have looked at the Ron Francis kit for around $850....
I have the COMPLETE harness from the donor car....but as I said I lack the know how,
so buying a plug and play kit would be awesome....but to me has to be under a grand in Canadian dollars

The Ron Francis kit is not a plug and play kit. It is individual wires that you have to put in place.
Check with HotwireAuto - Fuel Injected Wiring Harnesses He will make you a plug-n-play harness for your truck. I am pretty sure that the pricing will be over $1,000 US.

I made my harness myself for my 63 F100 but that was a lot of work.

Wiring harness for 4.6

hello i am glad i found someone who has done a harness for the 4.6 i was wondering if you could make a stand alone harness for a 4v 4.6 i have done some changes to make it more acceptable for my project. I have put plug on coils for it first off then have put all new sensors for a 06 motor the car i am putting this in is a 06 so thats the reason behind that the block is a teksid with the 4v heads and has a mmr intake on it 80 lb injectors ken bell throttle body comp cams weisco pistons and a few other things what i would like is a plug and play harness for it and if you can do that shoot me a price too.

Hello,
I'm 5 years into my 2 year project and it’s now time for the dreaded wiring. I'm building a 1926 Studebaker and the engine and transmission are from a 1997 Mustang GT. It's the single overhead cam 4.7L Romeo motor with the 4R70W transmission that I'm looking to get the Stand Alone setup for. I'm very interesting in working with you to see what it would take to get a stand alone setup for this build.
I've never posted on this blog or messaged in here, so I hope I'm doing this right :-)
Cheers!
Dan

^^ Your message came through. I think the OP (original poster) is still on these forums? Seems like he was selling CV coil over kits for a period, kinda hope he still does for when I'm done w/ mine later this year.

OP hasn't logged on since march 2017. Personally what he is offer has validity and is just a different way than others have gone. You can check with him on facebook in the crown vic swap forum as he offers the setup in there as well. There are also other options in the FB group as well.

I have a 4.6 3V and the cost from Megasquit is about $1,500 for my engine, Ron Francis would run me about $1,300 plus shipping. Andrew's price isn't off base if it's a plug and play, it just depends on your skill level and if you really just want to plug and play and cruise.
