Introduced for the 1978 model year, the Fairmont was produced in several bodystyles until it was replaced by the Ford Tempo for the 1984 model year. The Fairmont was the successor to the Maverick; its Mercury counterpart was the Mercury Zephyr, which replaced the Comet. The Fairmont and Zephyr marked the introduction of the long-running Ford Fox platform, used for a wide variety of later models. Those most closely related to the Fairmont included the 1980--1982 Ford Thunderbird, the 1981--1982 Ford Granada, the 1979--1993 Ford Mustang (and 1979--1986 Mercury Capri), and the 1982--1987 Lincoln Continental.





Holley EFI Dominator UNBOXING for the Turbo 6.0 LSx '92 Camaro Build
This is the unboxing of the Holley EFI Dominator kit that I will be running on the turbo LSx swapped '92 Camaro. I will later show this system on a LSx engine running on an engine stand to help explain how it is set up. After that we'll get a closer look at how it is set up in the vehicle. This system isn't necessarily a kit. Its like building blocks. You add the piece that you need or want to it, depending on your build. Not everything in this video or listed below will be needed for all LS projects. I've added a couple things, like the fuel pressure transducer. Thats one thing cool about this system is how flexible it is and the options you can add to monitor the engine. For more information on these parts or to find a part number for the part that you need, check out Holley's page: http://www.holley.com/Index.asp?division=Holleyefi -Part number and price - Prices pulled from SummitRacing on 4-3-2014: Dominator ECU - Part # 200R574A - $1,781.95 LS1 Main Harness - Part # 558-102 - $334.95 Main Power Harness - Part # 558-308 - $54.95 4L60/80 Trans Harness - Part # 558-405 - $155.95 LS Injector Harness - Part # 558-201 - $89.95 Wide Band O2 Sensor - Part # 554-101 - $91.95 100PSI Pressure Transducer - Part # 554-102 - $111.95 Check out my other videos like this on the link below: http://www.youtube.com/user/AGearHead4Life





1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though, easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway, enjoy the video. Here's some links.
