    Yeah its going to be stock block 347, it wasn't going to be much more money over doing a 306. I wish I could go with an aftermarket block but my budget wouldn't allow it. Going to stay with the Ron Anderson Performance E7 heads, AFM B451 Cam, Performer RPM (Ported Upper and Lower).

    Yeah, I made the hard lines on the rear end and the SS hoses are MM. The hoses Im going to use up front are also MM. Im going to be using a 93 cobra booster and a 94/95 cobra master cylinder and adjustable prop valve on the line going to the rear.

    Thanks for the comments guys

    thanks for the reply man. one last question. what year and type mustang did your rear calipers come from? and which rear braided hoses did you get from maximum motorsports? reason i ask is because i have 04 gt rear calipers and i was looking at maximum motorsports rear braided hoses and i see they sell them for 94-95 cars, but not 96-04 cars. i want to get their rear stainless hard line and 3 hose kit which includes braided caliper hoses and chassis to axle hose, but it says it's for fox's using sn95 calipers. so if the hoses won't work with 04 calipers, obviously i couldn't use it.

    thanks a lot for your help

    94 to 04 rear calipers are all the same, the only difference between cobra and GT versions are the cobra have different brackets and different pads to accept the bigger cobra rotors. I'm using the 94-95 hoses on mine. That looks like a good kit, I think they came out with that kit shortly after I had finished doing my lines.

    I forgot about putting LEDs in the HVAC controls. I put 2 from the LEDs I had left over in them.

    Looking great man. You seem to know your way around wiring. Looks very neat and organized. I see you have an EVTM. Can't wire a car without one of those!

    Speedhut has some really trick gauges. I wish I knew about them before I bought all my autometer ones. Where are you mounting them in the car?

    Looking good. Those little things like LED's in the gauges make a huge difference in the quality of the car to me. Just makes the car feel refreshed.

    Slow going but making some progress

    Got the fenders and front bumper re-installed and installed new headlights

    Front tire fitment, 275/45 nittos, they were on the wheels so I tried them! they stick out a little far! Swapped one to a 245/45 today to see the difference. Much better but not enough tire for the wheel. Im going to get 255/40s. It doesnt help that I have way to much positive camber right now and no weight in the front. Needs alignment when Im all done.

    Flawless build man, quality work. I gotta do a LED swap, it makes the stock gauges look new.
