Well, the truck is in the garage, all fluids bled, and a butt load of connectors, um, disconnected.

Ford 302 no smog, no a/c, and no lack of power, sweet! The tranny is a NWC Borg Warner T-5 from a Mustang GT, fully rebuilt and ready to go.

It's pretty much a copy of the Edelbrock performer intake from a Mustang. Better clearance, more power, and not speed density like the intake from the f-150.

I am in the same boat. The "broke" part that is. All of this was around $5000
so far over a year and a half. The key is knowing the right people:

Engine rebuilt by Ernie Brottem, famous NASCAR motor builder in the 60's-now
Tranny-ebay
intake-ebay
ford 9 inch-guy I work with
95% of the other parts-ebay

If you're broke, ebay is your best friend.

typhoon?
did you ever run it on anything before you put it on that motor? i ran the performer on a h/c/i car and loved it, always wondered if that was really just as good for $200 less...

TYPHOON, that's the name! I have not run it in anything yet. Blue Oval Industries told me that it's an almost exact replica of the edelbrock, but it's cast in China. So, some porting had to be done, but it looks legit.

thats cool, i saw one on ebay before i got the performer but i didnt want to take my chances and have it be bum so i had to suck it up and throw the extra green for the edelbrock. i had heard that the same company that makes that intake makes a set of cylinder heads identical to the victor jr's for like $700

Yeah, my brother and I splurged on Edelbrock heads just because thats the one area you don't want to go cheap on. I wanted a good brand name that was reliable. Not saying Blue Oval is bad, but I am not a risk taker.
