Well, I have spent many months offshore reading and learning on here. This is my second Fox, and I wanted to do it right this time around. So, here is my car and progress so far. I bought a '90 Notch while on a job in California and had it shipped back to Houston. For $2600 plus shipping, I was happy. Fast forward to February. I've been stacking some cash by working offshore pretty much constantly. I've had some time off and started working on the car. I decided to do suspension first, and build from the rear forward. First, I reinforced the torque boxes. I used the eBay kit for $40. Had some minor fitment issues, but you get what you pay for.

Will buy nice ones eventually. View attachment 194465 5 lug rotors from a Lincoln up front: View attachment 194466 Topped off with 18x9 Saleen replicas in black chrome.

By hoopty50 at 2011-03-27 Pulled the stock engine and trans out. Blown head gasket and probably a freeze plug??? dont know yet. But I am going to fix it and put it back in until I can complete the 408 to keep it driving. Going to clean up the engine bay. I want to weld all the holes, but I understand its a pain. But looks sooo good when done. Will start it tomorrow I guess. Here are the inner fenders, needs a serious clean up first. By hoopty50 at 2011-03-27 Also, got this in the mail today. It will go in when the engine bay is done. By hoopty50 at 2011-03-27 Stay tuned... Im kinda done spending on car parts for now. Shelled out $3k for the short block but have to buy a house soon (ugh!) Waiting on the short block to be done, but have lots of interior work to do as well as in the engine bay. This car is nasty inside and out. Now for the Q&A section of the broadcast: Can I leave those 3 sensors the bolt to the core support off? When running wires behind the inner fenders, are there any tips or tricks? Can the voltage regulator and coil be mounted back there? I guess thats it for now. Leaving the A/C and smog crap off when I put the 302 back in while the 408 is being done. Will I run into any problems with the smog crap off? Thanks guys. Hope this entertained some of you for a minute or two.
