I'd go with a real ford powerplant myself. But that is just my opinion. I would go with something like a mild 351 or even a 302. And I would not put that much money into a transmission for your application.

The Air Spencer CK Citrus Air Freshener has to go, this is not the highest performing air freshener out there. The old Canada pine tree freshener still rules! :p

Well Beau, that's definately a plan and a budget.This is a good thing! Now take your list and start shopping, swap meets, classified ads and catalogs and see how much you can trim off your list prices. You can expect to save 25% to 75% off the mechanical parts by going to the wrecking yards, unless you can do all the installation work yourself you'd better add more in for labor. If more people did this kind of planning before starting there wouldn't be near as many unfinished projects sitting in garages around the country. Good work!!! Now does all that stereo equipment get the oldies station any better than my $15 swap meet JVC cassette player?

You won't even be able to enjoy driving it, with the navigation system it will be driving itself!What rear end? That's another pricey item.
Sounds nice.

I like the pine tree branch 4 Jaw, a nice finishing touth. $3k trans? Deep pockets or big dreams? Make mine a Viper, purple with Black leather interior, two nitrus packs and a drag shute just in case. My dream Work Car. With full sized spare!

I would go with a ford drive tran as well.Jasper engine's 351M create 2250.00 AOD trans(no computer needed)1750.00 that would save you about 2787.00.
As far a the nav system that is for people that can not read maps or just likes having big brother knowing where you are all the time.
as far as the crime gaurd and pager that is a little high and the pager does not work if you are I an steel structure like the mall??? buy a Viper 900 series. Viper offer a full value replace if the car is taken.
also do not forget there is a charge for using XM up here it is like 35 per month.
sounds like to many play toys unless you are a stereo head and plan on alot of stereo shows.
but this is just my 2 cents

I don't see anything for the optional alternators or batteries to keep it going. I also agree that it should have Ford power, but, to each his own. I will advise that everything is subject to change as you go. Good job on the planning! Later, Jay

Beau,
Gave this alot of thought over the years, and came up with a simplified formula for someone who can't find a way to hide the rod budget from his wife. Figger on about three times the amount you can't afford to spend if you do the work yourself, much more if you plan on having someone else do the dirty work. Have a secondary contingiency budget for beer, tetnus shots, light bulbs, more primer, more beer, gas for the welder, wire for the welder, burn ointment, another roll of DA discs, band-aids, special tools to save you money, more beer, and some hand cleaner..................Then start saving for an interior and a stereo.
