Default For my 5.0 peeps...

Those of you who don't get to the other sites often, here are some pics of this year's work:













Made new harness, new ECU, new FEAD, cam, valve springs, pushrods, timing chain, painted the engine bay, new overflow/washer box, new hoses, moved some stuff around, etc.

That's probably the neatest, cleanest installation I've seen.

Nicely done!

Very clean and neat.

It takes a lot of work to do that, and not many appreciate that.

Good job sir!

Thanks guys!
It's a work in progress.
The cam is a B303, 1.7:1 roller rockers, GT40 heads/intake, 65mm throttle body. It moves well. Best part is definitely the brakes.

I got rid of the AC.
My rad is sitting where the AC condenser was.

It would be easy to keep AC if Explorer or SN95 front accessories were used.
