that taurus is the most motivation i ever got. and its not like i can drive the focus and just wait til everything gets here and slam-bang out the swap in a weekend. im carless (correction: good, fun to drive, doesn't make me look gay carless) until she's fixed. and i miss drivin her, and i can't wait til its done either. its gonna be so much fun to drive!.

i'm gonna be leavin soon to go get my engine and wiring harness and ECU. then i'm gonna go up to the garage and see what i can do/needs to be done. i'll post again tonight with pics and stuff.

That Taurus is reminiscent of the 89 Sable I had. Down to the missing chunks of bumper. It was a horrid hoopty, but it wasn't a half bad car - provided you never needed to exceed 55 mph. That's when the front end would wobble like mad. Then the transmission on it blew and I was in no way upset. In fact - I celebrated that day.

well i didnt manage to get my engine, the guys at the junkyard wouldn't work overtime to finish pulling it. so im gonna pick it up tomorrow, altho i did get the ECU for a measly $50. i might be getting a SC that was meant for a 5L mustang tomorrow, and for a good price. my baby might be supercharged.

Supercharger that sounds nice, how much fabrication will that take?

Got the V6 today. I wasn't able to go to the junk becuase I was helping a friend at work finish a project. I did happen to work on it a little bit afterwards. It's going to need to be rebuilt, and it's going to need alot of new stuff. It's going to be hell of a project.

yeah I would suggest not trying to fab up that supercharger. You will have enough problems putting the engine in and wiring it.
