do not order through DSS....crapy company. Anything that goes wrong with your motor, even if it was their fault, they will place the blame on you or someone else. got to www.corral.net to read up on some horro stories.

go with www.fordstrokers.com
Woody is the guy who runs the place.

with all that said, good luck with your build. My 95 is a dedicated track car as well.
I have a weight removal thread in general tech, thats kinda taking weight removal to the next level on these cars.

Nick......................I'm back!!!
May you fly low and fast
rest in peace JL

I wouldn't bother with a solid axle swap. Your money would be better spent somewhere else.

As for heads, AFRs or VicJrs. get my vote. I have a set of the Holley Systemax heads on my 393, and with all the port time I have into them, plus having to redo the valve job aftewards, I wish I had just spent the money upfront for better heads.

-91 Cougar LS, coming soon, complete overhaul with a 427" Windsor.
-90 XR7 5-speed black on black w/sunroof, MP2, coated rotors, double intercooler, 15%OD, ported heads, comp stage 1 cam, 85mm TB, 90MM LMAF, 80# injectors, and ported big valve heads
-98 Mark VIII LSC, Procharger P600b, TR3650 swap and 3.73s.
-90 SC Automatic rustbucket winter beater
-97 Tbird Sport 4.6 Nice weather daily driver

wellhe decision has been made today that it is getting back halfed... doing the solid axle is only gunna cost me the axle... and the new coil overs... my budy runs a fab shop so hes gunna do the back half and the axle... all i have to pay for is the metal... im also going to be doing a glass front end hood... and deck lid... but that will be in time... he is also making me a cage.... he loves making cages and he said he has the metal so i dont even have to pay for it... im trying to figure out were else to save weight... i was thinking vic jr heads too... also thinking of doing a mustang 2 front clip... my plan is to have the car don for running in the 8's so that if eventualy i go that far i wont have to do all the extra work that goes along with it...ill only be dealing with motor and trany to get that fast cause everything else will be done...

Where in NJ is this buddy of yours that loves making cages? We are putting one in our 24hrs of lemons car tomorrow, and if someone who has some experience in this matter would be willing to help, that would be great.

Don't bother with a mustang 2 front end, it will be a lot of fab work, and you really won't gain anything from it. A tubular K-member would probably be good for what you want to do though. As far as going carbed or not, I would say for now leave it EFI, since you already have a pretty decent manifold. By the time that manifold becomes a restriction, you will be way up there in power, and at that time it is going to start to cost more in terms of tuning and everything to keep the EFI, so at that time you can go carbed. Plus by that time, who knows if you'll even still be running a 302, so rather than having to buy multiple intakes, and multiple carbs, just keep the EFI, and when it gets to the point that it is going to cost too much in terms of tuning, then go to the carb. In the end though, you can make more power with the EFI than you will be able to with the carb, but the cost/dollar will definitely swing in favor of the carb for a while first.

he is in perth amboy.... but im sure he is weeks to months out from being able to take anything else on.... now my question with the efi over carb is how much can you tune an efi motor? i weill be running a 331 or 347 will the efi still be ok? what will i have to do to get the most power out it? im not verry good with efi... i can tune the hell out of a carb but EFI thats one of those scratching my head things.... i need to figure out what rear to buy as well i want to go cheaper at first untill have the power to require a shortend 9" but that may be way off... weare gunna do a minor back half on the car with mini tubs and posibly full aluminum floors... trying to get as much wait as possible out of this thing... im looking into the glass parts... haryglass has the fenders doors hood bumpers and decklid so im thinkin that will be a decent amount of weight but the cost of it all is gunna put that way off... i may do decklid/rear bumper and a hood for now...
