Default The "other" Black Widow - 88 - 302 build

Here's what she looked like in the beginning...








Finally got the transmission installed and working correctly and thought I would throw a few pictures up for everyone.











Well here's a list of everything I've done so far....

302 bored .60 over KB pistons runs about 9.5:1 small cam, Spider Web intake, Edelbrock 650 carb, Hedman headers. C4 auto from TCI good up to 750 HP with a B&M shifter, stall is a mild 2200.

Redid the interior in black, made the custom center console, 94 Exporer all electric seats, custom made gauge panel with Equus gauges, Aerostar grill center, posi 7.5 rear end geared at 4.10's. We lowered the rear it by an inch or so by flipping the rear spring perches and cutting 1 loop out of the front springs. I have air shocks in the rear so I can raise it or lower it depending on what size tires I end up running.Lots of black and red paint and such. Built by me and my 17 year old son.

I have street slicks sitting in the garage ready to go on (27X11.50X16) when I find a couple 16 rims!

I'm forseeing a different gear ration in the very near future, the 4.10's are way to low. At 70 MPH I'm running 4.5K RPM's. It's a hell of a lot of fun getting to 70 but should do much better with 3.04's......

I also would like to get an overhead console at some point.......

I added the mod list to the first post so other users would see it.. -ZMan
