    yea, I brought it home Monday, Pulled 4cyl Monday night, Power washed it Tuesday, Cleaned up engine bay Wednesday, and Installed engine today, unfortunately I'm out of money for this project for this month. Have to wait till next month, I set my budget at $200/week. I still need an intake, carb, fuel pump, line, pickup, distrib, msd box and cooling system. It should be done around Christmas time.

    Yes, I have to do the 5 lug conversion, I plan on leaving the 4 cyl springs, but getting new struts and shocks, and I plan on 3/8" aluminum fuel line, with one of the aftermarket pickup tubes that go in place of the electric pump. I will run a holley blue pump w/ regulator, and most likely one of Professional Products RPM Air Gap knockoffs, I found them for as low as $110. I will probably bite the bullet and buy myself a new carb either a 650cfm or 670cfm Holley. The distributor I chose is the MSD-8598 paired with a 6AL box for ease of installation and nice clean install.

    I love it! Looks great so far.. So simple thanks to the carb too I'll bet. What carb/intake combo are you running? (sorry if you said previously I wasn't paying attention)

    Cool stuff. Do you have the tank and pump and all that stuff rigged up so it can run on the carb yet? It looks like you're getting really close to firing it up! I can't wait haha :D

    Yea, I took the factory fuel pump out, and put in an aluminum tube in place of the pump. I bought a 25ft roll of 3/8 fuel line and all the fittings. I have a Holley blue pump, and regulator also.

    I will most likely get to fire it up on Sunday if I don't run into any problems. Unfortunately my digital camera doesn't have sound while recording short clips.

    Undecided on rear end ratio yet, I have the original 8.8 from my 1986 vert for this coupe.
