Hey I was just devastated after fixing my front end after an accident, have brake lines go bad on me TWICE in two weeks, doing the repairs, and getting new tires, battery, mast cylinder... then blowing my head gaskets less than a week later.
Well maintained car, garage kept for first 97,000 miles.. its at 120,000 miles now and its been running great for me for 4 years.
QUESTIONS regarding SPLITPORT-
I found a 2000 Mustand Upper & Lower Intake plus throttle body.. no IMRC on that year correct?
I still haven't gotten heads, what year would I need? What gaskets, would need Mustang gaskets, right?
I found so far that the fuel rail needs to be modified, something about the fuel return line.. but I'll get to that when I get to that. Right now, would just be happy finding the right cylinder heads, and getting the engine back together. Could I use my stock valve covers???
I could not give up on this car, it was halfway to the junkyard when my head gaskets blew. Look 2 days later I am almost down to the bare engine, well organized labeled the wires. Once I get the fuel rail off, I am guessing I could get all the way to the failed gasket in another 3 hours.
This is my 3rd TBIRD - 92 SC, 97 4.6L. I have read about the splitport swap and thought it would be real cool, just not worth all the work involved. Now I am taking it all apart anyway - so WHAT THE HELL. DO IT!
Help me out what heads do I need first? Other Mods besides the fuel rail?
I read this post and it got me thinking it might be more work than I am up for this late in November.
