A certain members Mustang is currently being torn apart by a fellow member all in the need for more speed......

What started out as a few bolt on mods is now snowballing and said member is currenrly rumoured to be head buried inside a JEGS catalogue, so that'll be another $4,000 dollar t-shirt on its way to good old blighty!

I'll post up detailed pictures tonight

the rumour is correct... and the member is looking for parts for him self and not the mustang owner which is more worrying lol!!!

These pictures are courtesy of Peter (shed), who's currently turned his hand to the 'Joe&Co Mustang'...

The pictures aren't in sync due to having to transfer from berry to photobucket to forum, but you get the basic idea..

Dialogue from Peter is:

Engine out, engine bays well grubby, but with a lick of paint is all sorted, sump is red enamel as that's what I had...

Pictures of some of the new bits that came courtesy of Chris at WASP and the heads which came from Allan (Candy69) via the Outlaw 1 'Pony Express'.

Also decided the fuel pump isn't upto the job due to the plugs being white as snow so going to fit this Holley 110gph manual pump which I had in the stores.

Also fitting a trans cooler as the one in the rad is shot, although the rads ok otherwise.

That's it for now....

yippee!!

Would like to add that the power steering rack is also out and a new manual is on its way. Also fitted 90/10's on the front and 50/50's on the rear. I am going to take some weight out as well as i have decided that full street trim isn't necessary....

thanks pete ; )

Some of those boxes look familiar. I have a garage full of bits and pieces like that as well. My motor is now back in place but It hasn't run yet as I am redoing fuel lines for the holley blue top pump and trans cooler lines etc. i am also fitting remote oil filter while I'm at it.

Ok so went for my weekly visit to "garage" shed and it is really coming along! Pete removed the front end and cleaned up the engine bay, followed by a lick of satin black paint. he also has removed any additional weight from the front end. All the wiring that was a mess is going to be organised as well.
The engine is pretty much back together, pete was waiting for a delivery from jegs which had just arrived! I also ordered a high torque starter and a new alternator which will be here after the weekend. The heads are on and the pushrods and rockers are in place :)

Whilst the front end was off i also ordered a manual rack for the front end which will be here monday as well..

Pete had a bit of fun locating the fuse box on this car but thanks to Mark and Shaun they found it eventually. so over the next couple of weeks the engine will go back and the front end back on then the last bits and peices including the trans cooler and the setting it up!

Can't wait!!!! pete is unbelevable and is treating this as if it was his own car! I am so greatful as i would never have the knowledge, time or space to any of this! :)
