yep its a ford...sorry.
damn...i guess i better not post any pics of the Daily Driven VW GTI...
53 views and everyone hates it so much they cant even post
Bring it to my place-I have a nice 429 to stuff in it!!!!
have you seen pics of that 05 with the 427FE stuffed in it?
ill get some pics up if you want?
Haven't seen that one. Sounds cool though. Personally, I like the 429 better. More modern head design, oiling system done right the first time, not 3 changes later. Same stroke as a SBC, so it will rev. I am looking for a MK VII to put my 429/C6 into. Living out in the middle of nowhere makes it hard to find anything. Guess I will have to hit some auctions in colorado Springs and Denver. Does yours have the DOHC 4.6? Nice motors, I just not partial to anything I can't fix with some wire and duct tape.
ya its the DOHC 4.6, 310hp, 320ftlbs
the ford motors are surprisingly simple actually, i was a fraid to tear into one the first time, but its actaully pretty user friendly as long as you dont screw up the cam timing/get the cam gears out of whack.
mine dyno'd at 292rwhp, with just full exhaust.
runs 13.7 @109 on street tires, boy does it need slicks.
I'd like to see the pic's !
FE's are way cool - heavy, but cool.
Here's My Mustang 87 LX Vert. Ford only made 2074 87 LX convertables. So it is pretty rare Mine is one of only 77 built similar.
Altho ICee looks stock she is far from it.
Ported E7 heads, Ported lower intake, 65mm TB, Stainless headers, OR H pipe, Summit muffs, FMS injectors, adjustable FPR, ASP aluminum UD pulleys, flexalite electric fan, HD 3 core radiator, 130 amp alternator, MSD/DUI ignition. K&N filter
FMS B springs, Energy suspention master bushing kit, HD upper and lower rear control arms, CGS sub frame connectors. BBK Strut tower brace. k member brace, ES motor/trasns mounts, 8.8 tracklock 4 link rear end 2.73 gears.
Even with the highway gears it runs in the mid low 13s all day long.
3.73s would get me into the 12s Not only does she get down the straghtaway fast. She goes thru corners like she is on rails. She is a very sweet car to drive.
I fear no one and make no apologys for owning a fine vehicle like a FORD MUSTANG FORD RULES! The clear and unchallenged winner of the Pony Car wars
I thought about one of those to drop my 429 in. But I'm a little off kilter, so I want to do something different. Few people would expect to get their doors blown off by a Mk VII,plus I get the leather seats and all that luxo stuff.
429 in a Mark 7 would be totally cooool. All you need is a engine swap kit for a Mustang and it will bolt right in. might needa 9"(8.8 and a light foot at the least) rear and a C6 trans tho
Got the C6 with the 429. Also have a nod iron 9" rear in the T Bird, just would need to narrow and have proper mounts put on it. I thought the Mk VII had the 8.8 rearend.
not mine but my moms so it will be mine someday . a friend and i built it up from the ugly basket it was.
1973 mustang coupe granda package. 302 ( 300hp dynoed and 350 lb ft ) feed by edelbrock fuel injection rpm pro flow kit. exaust is headman elite thermal coated headers and flowmaster 50 delta flows in the 2.5 pipe size. all going threw built c4 and 8" rear end till it blows up. 235/60/15 frt and 255/60/15 rear bfg radial t/a with repo magnum 500 rims 15x7 sized. all new brakes and hoses. new hd 5 leaf rear springs. few other goodys for later.
still need to finish a few things this spring and she will be ready for the road and for mom to burn the he!! off the tires
It should have. You will have to go easy on the skinny pedal with all that torque. be ok with street tires. But withsomething sticky.........Snap.
BTW Sweet30. That is a nice looking build you are doing on that 73 Stang. Looks like it will run storng. Your mom should be proud !
if for some reason i quit showing up on this board send out the search party. as my mom has killed me as i didnt finish it for her to drive this year.
Nice Staang!!! Years ago, I had a 70 notchback with a 351w, C6, factory 4 barrel intake and headers. The body was toast, cause it was a Michigan car, but it sure did scream.
We still have my wife's '86 GT Cobra. We traded it in in 2000, then some kid from her work went and bought it. He had it 9 months and clipped a power pole with it. Rear quarter damage mostly, but the rest of the body is tweaked too. Door gaps are messed up and there is a bit of a wrinkle in the roof. We bought it back from this kid for $500 and it's been in storage since.
I plan on swapping everything to a donor shell, and then freshen up the drivetrain and put it back into active duty. Up until the kid bought it it had never had so much as a windshield claim and was 100% original and low mile. We traded it in with 54,000 miles on it. It has 67,000 now.
I'll have to dig up a pic and scan it though.
I got to drive it pretty regular when before we traded it in, and had it up to 220 km/h on the freeway once (136 mph) Fun car, and not even bad on fuel.
Heres my junk, tbi 66 mustang
my little sister's first car:
1992 LX 5.0
-5 speed, Cobra Clutch (can't remember if thats what is in there now or not, its heavier than a stock clutch)
-cam(yep no idea exactly what cam)
-cold air intake
-full length chromed headers
-Flowmaster 40 series mufflers
-lower control arms(can't remember if it has uppers or not)
-lowering springs all around(not drag springs, shes been looking to pick up a set)
-3.73 gears with the stock Posi(still tight)
-MSD 6A ignition with MSD wires, cap, rotor, and coil(makes the car run on a few seconds after you turn the key off, so if anyone knows the fix for that, love to hear it)
Dynoed at 265HP to the wheels.
Best time I know it ran was a 13.4, I can't remember if it has gone faster than that yet or not. As you can tell I don't know nearly as much about the car as I probably should, but whatever, its fun to drive, I'd never own it myself though.
Scanned a pic of my wife's '86 before it got wrecked...
nice rides everyone!!!
too bad about the 86, i love 4 eye Foxbodys.
