Lots of rides here started as buckets. Everyone should make a thread since it's those that rise from the pits that impress the most

Charge to 150... CLEAR .....OK, we have a pulse...

 

Much has changed since the previous update so here are the cliff notes:

 

1] I bought a house

2] I wrecked the '98 GT

3] I bought a 2015 F150 for a daily driver

4] I sold my 410w project

So, before I sold the 410w, I had finally amassed everything to have one sick engine.. AFR205's, Super Victor intake with a 90mm, a custom cam from Flowtech Induction, Holley HP efi with a digital, touchscreen dash, distributor-less ignition wth LS coils and much more...

 

The reason I decided to part ways with the engine project that was started back in '09 was it just wasn't what I wanted anymore. After driving my F150 for a few months, I was very impressed with the 5.0's power delivery and seemingly endless torque curve. Once I added a JLT intake and a custom tune it really opened my eyes to what must be done.

 

Coyote swap!!!

Just couldn't handle the tall deck could you!  

 

After seven years of broken parts, disappointment, and wishing I had just terminator swapped the car [like I had initially planned] I decided to sell out.. The good new was years of hook ups, horse trading and bargaining actually allowed me to come out $1100 ahead of the investment :D

Is it done yet?

 

Cant start on it until I finish the blower install in my wife's S197. I'm at the tuning stage so I hope to start next weekend.

Since the S197 blower install hit a snag, I took the time today to remove the dash and master cylinder. During the disassembly, I found the rust issue wasn't quite as bad as previously thought. My plan is to dress it up with a wire brush and wire wheel then hit it with some POR15. A coat of white spray paint should do the trick. This is, after all, not an uber clean OCD machine but a track toy. After reaching a certain point, I switched my attention to the front suspension by installing my Maximum Motorsports Race struts and coil overs. Also, I temporarily re-installed the Griggs control arms and brake rotors in order to put the front wheels back on.

 

Why you ask? I'm swapping the grey dash/interior from my '98 GT and switching to hydroboost brakes. I needed to put the car on the ground for transport to another location to drop the 4.6 4V in.

Were you going to do hydroboost with the windsor engine too?  I've been thinking about trying to swap myself but it's hard to find good info on what it would take to swap a 94.

Yes, I was actually but it's much simpler with the modular cars. I had done research on corral that led me to corner carvers but I never went anywhere with it. I have an extra, complete set up if you decide to jump off the cliff though..

I'm even thinking about scoring another Teksid block and building up a 4V, screw it...
