Well, we originally had it timed out so we would finish it before Brian left for college. We ended up needing more parts than we thought we did, so we are going to finish it whenever he comes back. I tell you guys, this WILL get done and a "how to" will be put together!

I'M BACK!!!!

there might need to be some custom motor mount work at most, and custom wiring for sure.

i will definitely keep track of this stuff and make sure it goes in the how-to.

i got back in MI on sunday and had myself a mini-christmas.

besides the newer trans (don't have pics of it yet) '98 SVTC trans with only 10K on it,
i got:

a lightened (and remachined) flywheel


a contour shifter


and some shorty exhaust headers for the V6






so i'm gonna start getting myself organized and get ready to wrench.

anybody who can make it to southeast michigan is more than welcome to come out and lend a hand or just check it out.

this thread has risen from the dead!
