Kugel V8 Instructions

Does anyone happen to have the Kugel Komponents V8 conversion instructions? I just want to see what is involved and whether they cover the PCM and related wiring in any detail.

I'm sure if you call the shop that does the conversion, they will give you an idea of what's involved. I don't know how close you are to the shop, but they are in Florida too. It may be worth the trip to go see for yourself.

No they don't cover P.C.M or wiring.

My parts came from here and the instructions were basic;

Anyone seen the Kugel kit used in a wagon, I've been wondering lately if the subframe would work in the wagons or just the ZX3, ZX5 models.

Mine's a Wagon.

No problems, the front subframe is the same, the rear coilovers are mounted differently, but mine is one of the early setups, I believe the rear is the same apart from the spring rate.

^^^ Stop bragging Tom... ;)

I just wanted to know how the kit addresses EFI on 5.0 Mustang engines (obviously not a problem on a carb'd 351W)

Would that still run the gauge cluster and other necessary bits? Or would the Mustang ECU be secondary?

This is the question I cannot seem to get answered, even by the Monster Miata guys. They want to have me pay $40 for the instructions manual that come with the kit.
