Here are a few pics of my new combo, going n/a with a AOD. I want to hit some car shows with my car when its done and just cruise it. I still need to get a auto trans ecu and a few wiring harness's for the swap yet. I hope to have it done by the end of the month.





Old set up


Motor out


Empty bay


No more belt or clutch slip. Bye bye T-5 and S-Trim

I made the mistake of putting a manual rack set up on it when I did the build the 1st time. the stock rack was leaking and the pump was making noise. I plan on switching back to power steering and putting the air back on at some point. Its a 347

Yes N20 is a power adder, but it's not pressurizing the manifold (forced induction), so my opinion is that the engine is still naturally aspirated even if it huffs N20.

It sucks at low speed with the 255/40-17's on it, not bad with the convo pro's and skinny's. Bit for drag racing and high speeds its nice as its not so twitchy.

Retiring the old girl to showcar/cruiser status for real. WOW! Did you sign her up for SSI too? Laughing

So does this mean there is a new ride in the works to be the designated racecar?

I'm not much of a Ford guy, but I do like that calypso green with the 17's on it. You don't see a lot of them around in that color.

With that said, I've never known you to have anything that wasn't fast. I call sandbagging lol!

that 347 is no slouch. And the car weighs less than 3,000lbs. It will be plenty fast.
