    Hahahaha hopefully life would be definitely alot better. Just a project in the making for awhile. I always liked these cars, when i was younger i was completely in love with this body style. In 94 when they changed it, i wasn't caring for it too much. I like the older body style better . But i said one day i'll buy one and turn it into the car i believed ford should have made from the factory. The car originally was supposed to compete with the grand national, but ford scraped those plans when buick decided to stop production on grand national after 87. I believe ford should've made the beast they were working on at first. These cars cost an arm and a leg to build, but it was a dream of mine since i was younger....so i continue on. I know Dalke is working on some supercharger kits, so that'll definitely give these cars some potential they deserve. And definitely help my project become complete. These cars deserve the kind of respect i see tricked out nationals get by everyone when they roll up on any muscle or modded car gathering

    I think they'll be closed unless they are working on some projects. If so you can definitely see my car and how it's coming together

    Watch out

    You might want to re-think having the spark plugs in while trying to install those headers in tight spaces. I cracked at least 1 possibly 2 of my plugs, just from try to think ahead, but it simply caused a headache in the long run.

    It all looks really good though, great work!

    Just a FYI,

    what oil?

    Hey guys what's a good break in oil to use? Amsoil or royal purple? Or maybe something else ? And what weight? My car will be started Monday so I gotta get some ASAP. Also what oil and weight should I run after the motor breaks in?

    it's been awhile

    Been kinda busy, but things have been slowly advancing. As u all know a fine gentleman has been doing some magic on a supercharger,plenums, and pulley for me. So no need for me to post duplicate pics of that. So I decided to post a few pics of some other things that are being put on the car.Name:  IMAG0442.jpg

    When I asked this question I was told to talk to my machine shop. He has recommended a non detergent 30w oil for the first 300.

    No synthetic till at least the 5,000 mark.

    Has your machine shop told you something different?

    Wow I didnt know you were going all in. Havent seen this post. ONE THING I need to warn you about is that clutch. I had it and managed to snap two input shafts....I reccomend no powershifting...And if you have wheel hop which you will...I reccomend letting of the gas

    Thanks guys I appreciate you joining in on my rebuild. I have a dynotech drive shaft and a rear end brace, and poly IRS bushings. So hopefully that will help control my wheel hop some and strengthen my drive line.
