    Looks great! Keep it up, and bump up the compression on that Windsor motor while it's out!

    IF i do anything to the motor i'm converting it to roller and a BIGGER cam. The compression will stay the same cause after i finsh under the hood i'm still piecing together my S475 kit for it! :p My other plans are SFC install my anti roll bar for the rear i made rear diff cover tubular k member and arms and coil over's for the front like my SSP had. This one is gonna be more of a good cruiser/track/show/comfort car,unlike the coupe was more of a drag car.peace

    thanks for the kind words john. this trade went about as smoothly as it could have. i took the notch around the block again today. broke in the rear tires pretty good. this car is going to be sick with some boost.

    so did you guys trade running cars and you just already had the engine pulled before these pics? or did you just trade rolling chassis? i'm confused cause your car has no drivetrain and 281pony just said he drove your old car around the block. what engines do you guys have?
