motor build

hey i got a better idea of what you could do with the extra turbo...... TWIN TURBO ... the small one to spool quick and the big one to really let her rip..... I gotta say man im so jealous.... you need to hurry... i wish you lived closer i would love to come and help you.. in my little off time that i do have... that looks like alot of fun trying to figure it all out. wish i had the funds to do the same thing... i thought about using the motor out of my 10 second mustang. Its a built 351w .... but i would still need the rear end and tranny oh and the time....

interior will be factory. gauges will be aftermarket (all autometer). no a/c just because i dont want to mess with it.

sweet.. it would be really cool to be able to keep factory gauges though... at least i think it would. same with a/c... do you even think you would have room for ac in that engine bay?

If Tim went with a smaller IC, radiator and did some workings he could probable fit a/c.. but for what its worth... neither me nor Tim care about that... a 2w60mph a/c is good enough for us.... isnt it Tim lol
