Yeah, the appeal of the crate motor is it is the front motor which does not have an inverter. I needed lower profile to stay below the truck bed .Sandy tear down is of the rear with the inverter integrated.
I’ll use a cascadiamotion inverter and still tbd on vcu. Aem looks pretty nice. It will come down to ease of integration I’m sure.
That's gonna be a really cool conversion! Looking forward to seeing how this build progresses!
I'm wondering if anyone knows if the Mach-E front drive inverter would work with the Eluminator crate motor combined with the AEM VCU? I've contacted Ford Performance and they don't seem to know anything, and I've contacted AEM but have yet to get a response. The Cascadia is the obvious choice but the cost is quite high, about 4-5X the cost of a Mach-E inverter.
Took the Eluminator to Art Morrison chassis shop today to review the mounting and design. I am very impressed with AM capabilities and operation. Spread across three large buildings, CNC machines, mandrel benders, they’re the real deal. We’re still a long ways from the finished product. It was well worth the trip.
