    The Fairmount in the first post is a step in the right direction, but I still don't know why ford spent so many years routing the A/C lines from one side of the car to the other. It's just sloppy to purposefully route the A/C line between the intake and the hood, yet Ford did it that way for years for the fox chassis (compare the Fairmount with the Cobra, for example)

    The only problem with 6 cylinder Fairmonts is that you have to swap the K-member to a I4 or V8 K-member to swap a V8 into the car. Most Fairmonts I've seen have been 6 cylinder cars. The factory V8 ones are kinda rare.

    As you know that wouldn't be a problem. I have an extra or four...
