Awesome build, this is exactly how i would build mine, minus the aftermarket cam. IDK if I missed it, but what tranny are you going with??
Im looking forward to seeing more updates so I can live vicariously through you and see what I don't have the $$$ or know-how for on my 98.
im going with a t5 out of a foxbody mustang and im still undecided on a shifter either a steeda triax or a hurst and as far as the $$$ goes you can do it cheaper i just wanted all new bolts to work with and mostly new parts i have little over 2grand into it so far
not much progress lately got a valve cover bolt out that was broke off and got about half of my main harness 42 pin connector extended im adding 20 inches to it. Im going to get head gaskets soon and put the heads on hope the motor is complete in a couple weeks.
