funny that you ask this , the last time it was out before it expired it ran an 8.901 @86 mph 2.57 60 ft time on motor, car had been mid 7's on 50 shot,before and had slowed sinificantly .That was what had made my desicion to finnally do the motor swap i had been putting off for so long 6.0's here we come :D



i hope to get a few pics up of the motor swap soon :D

i am working on the hood situation , i am kind of torn between a boss 429 style hood scoop or a harwood 8" cowl scoop. :crazy:

there is not a hood for t-birds that is that tall

Haystack
09-28-2005, 11:59 AM
you could always just get a cowl add on and reverse it over the air cleaner. I dunno but I think that that would be pretty bad ass.

whats the console for? Sorry but I think that they are just annoying. And it takes all of the fun out of it anyways.





the small switch console is homemade. I dont have a console to put in it:D

What will your paint scheme be on the 429 tc, or are you just going to leave it primer black?

Hay Sleeper, I had no idea the swap was going this good. I talked to you on the Tccoa about my Turbo. I like the Cobra mags on fox bodies and Bullets on MN12s. Thats the combo I was thinking of doing before my 94 4.6 got totaled while I was sitting at a red light. Still trying to get money from there insurince company. I still need to to get both sets of mags becouse I'm looking to get another 94-95 4.6. But both T-bird look great and thanks for the Aux shaft it works great but now the cam is messing up and the Turbo is down for a forth time. I think its been parked for more days then it's been driven. I'm thinking of rebuilding the 2.3 and just make sure it's all in good working order. Your cars look great and I can't wait to see some track pic and times from the 429. I hope everything works out and that eveything turns out that good on my projects. Good luck

You need to build a cowl around the tc scoops. look like a Trans Am style ram air. I wanna do it, just dont have a tc hood or skills with fiberglass

I sure wish I had your Mustang for my next Caddy swap.

Still looking, they go from cheap and very beat to nice and expensive.

I want cheap and nice.:giggle: but it has to be a notch. The production numbers say that about 1/2 built were notch but the hatch is all you see.

It may be 500 steps backward, but at least you still have it. You've put sooo much time and effort into making that car everything it has been, and I'm sure it's the same for what it will become. That motor looks hot man, keep up the good work.
