    Default picked up a decent 1984 5.0L Thunderbird

    meet my new project.

    it is currently powered by a stock 302 with 79,000kms (47,000 miles). I have added a set of headers and off road h pipe and 2.5" flowmasters. I have also done the Mustang 11" front brake upgrade with a crown vic master cylinder and Lincoln 73mm calipers. also put new struts in the front. picked up a 1994 351W that I am currently collecting parts to drop it in with a carb.





    Here is the 351 and parts I have for it so far

    Looks like a solid car. 351w power...can't go wrong there. Can you do a 351w with the stock hood?

    Not worried about the stock hood closing 6-71's don't fit under any hood anyways.

    Scored this fiberglass hood so the 6-71 idea is on a stand still for now

    Lol. I slowed down quite a bit for a few years. Got into Mustangs again. But am back out of those. Now I am back into playing with them again.
