Lots of progress (engine and elsewhere), pics inside!!!

This was all well worth the time and effort. I thought it would look tacky, but I actually like how the blue rubber VC gasket contrasts all the red. Let me know how you like the results!!!

Also, I finally got this bad boy all wired and mounted up. Turned out really darn good IMO, even works with the dimmer switch. Whatcha think??? Oh, and I have a new plan for my gauges, gonna ditch the A-pilla gauge pod.

If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.

Really nice looking bird. I like when custom work is done the right way where performance and looks are both enhanced. Great job!

I got the ported/polished intakes from 40Bob (www.40bob.com), he does great work. They were $110 each (upper and lower), and it cost me $250 for the powder coating (intakes, valve cover and IC tubing). I of course did all the work removing the old stuff and putting the new stuff on, its the only way

Looks sweet.You might want to turn that BOV down so it doesnt collect rain and corrode the internals. Is that a Ranger rad.? I used a super coupe rad and inner cooler on mine.I just modded them so the inner cooler was on the pass side and so fourth.It was fun playing with 5.0 Mustang with half the displacement.

If you upgrade your ingnition I would suggest you go with a DIS 6 from MSD.I had one on mine and LOVED it.The car idled alot better and I could spool the turbo off the line with the retard function.

Keep up the nice work.

Yep, that's a ranger/explorer radiator. Works great, but I think I am going to upgrade to a 2-core for extra cooling capacity.
