The engine in mine is a mild 5.0L Ford crate motor with GT40P heads, the SVT 'E' roller cam/Crane 1.7 rockers, a full MSD Billet igntion and box topped by a Performer RPM intake and an Edelbrock 1405 carb
As everything looks today
The Billet Proof folks have a major cardiac event when the see the car
I really like that vintage Mustang or yours - it looks like you are doing a really nice job with the restoration and major updates.
Thanks Dave. That looks like a show winner. i have been aiming for a finish like yours and hats off to you with the detail of finish.
You must have some trophys for that. That air cleaner is a neat fit near the fire wall. I was hoping to have an oval shaped filter to sit on the Holley i have. The car came with a round "Mustang billet style" unit.
I have put my lathe to use and made a pwr steer pulley after i had an accident rolling the engine through a doorway and clipped the pulley.
Ended up making a cap for the water pump pulley to cover the lug heads.
Inside i have added a console and had a local leather guy pad it out for me. Not much left to make now i hope.
Pinto's and Granada's have not made it to Aus. but now that you mention wagons it has me thinking about efi ford wagons of the mid 90;s made here in Aus.which had a really high diff for economy. They will be doing 100kph(60mph) at 2000 rpm. 4speed autos.
Worth investigating i think.
