    Check it out. Me and my Father and his buddy built this engine up from the block. Bored 30 over. I will upload a picture of the cam card and balance sheet later.

    Yes and Yes cobra351 on here http://www.mustangii.com/forums/default.asp has done the AOD and for ghia to coupe there is a filler panel for the windows you would need coupe windows and trim and when you remove top you may have some rust to tend with

    I bought a front spoiler from mustang unlimited part# M113. and i have a front valance, It seems like i got the wrong spoiler because it doesn't want to fit. do i have to massage it a little bit, i know its fiberglass so it shouldnt be to hard.

    have most of the serpintine setup done, just need to hookup the power steering pump. im not sure if i have the right bracket for it, and the oil dipstick i got wont fit because of the alternator/smogpump bracket. any body have one from an 87 5.0?

    Your car is looking good, I bet that thing will definitely get on down the road with that motor and set up. Your hood scoop however looks like the one that came out on the 68 Cobra Jets. You may have had fitment problems because it's facing backwards.

    I flipped the hoodscoop because the guy that put it on had a few and said it looked better backwards, I have the engine out because were getting a bigger cam and im painting under the hood a semi-flat black. It looks pretty sweet. all post up a pic after i finish painting, also im getting a custom made torque converter from wholeshot with a 2200 stall. it has a b&m shift kit in it already so its gunna S**T & Get, haha Probley going to be the fastest car around school :D
