Talking 5.0 fofo conversion!!

So after careful consideration and lots of hours in the last two weeks spent at different performance shops I have decided to do the conversion kit on my focus. The kit is being purchased from http://www.ford-v8-focus.com/ . Last night I bought an 87 mustang GT 5.0. The guy helping me with the conversion (George) has a pretty solid rear end already built and ready to go as well as the C4 trans we will be using. George has been building mustangs for some years now and is a Ford guy in general, he is also a bad ass welder.

The conversion will go pretty smooth from what I can determine so far. We have 2 engine stands, trans stand and jack for the C4, cherry picker, endless tools, and I purchased a subscription to http://alldatadiy.com/ for both vehicles.

Keep an eye out for the "parting out focus" threads to come!!! I have a whole ZX4 to get rid of pretty much. While George and I will be doing the motor and trans swap, another friend and I will also be adding the roll cage, and an all custom interior.

I will keep the Lucid Nightmare thread updated as the conversion happens. I will also be upgrading the suspension and a few other things while I'm at it.



Billy

It will be installed, yes, 125 shot set up for the drag strip.

There will be another thread shortly explaining why I haven't been on in a couple weeks, but I am still parting out the current nitrous system for those that were looking for pieces.


Estimated RWHP on the motor: 305 RWHP
Estimated RWHP on the bottle: 425 RWHP
