Great job!
Nice set of headers who are they made by?

The headers are made by this guy here..... http://www.kaufmannproducts.com/mustangs.htm

They aren't supposed to require any modification to fit, but I raised the body 1.5 inches with spaces so I had to modify them a tid bit, but I real happy with e'm.

Why the cut radiator support?

We cut the radiator support so it would be easy to put the engine in.....Its welded back on now though...I'll get updated pics soon.

Nice looking project youv'e got going there.

BTW, you don't have a 1995 AOD SC. AOD's were in 1989-93. Yours would be a 4R70W. :)

My bad, my knowledge is limited when it comes to the 89-85's

There was no "fan fare" when I showed up with one in a SC either... It does look nice, but that color is a bit much... I did mine in Ford blue and some black for the trim. How big did you go with the engine?? What do you think it will be pushing?? Got to ask,got to know what else is out there.. By the way we have a 88 bird around here that went to 567 this last winter and now he has added the bottle to try to keep up.....Keep the faith and get that bad boy done so you can put some vette's away.....Rich

You Texans are letting that "Everything in Texas" thing go just a little bit tooo far. Thats a nice smoker you have there though...and the cars nice too.

Its a 460 bored .03, so I guess that makes it a 466?? We are keeping this one street legal, it's going to be an every day driver.
We had to pull the tranny out yesterday, the front pump bearing on it got scolded to the torque converter, the torque converter lived, but I think the front pump is gonna be toast, I''ll keep you guys posted with updated pics.
