Getting ready for the V8 swap.

Well I have started to gather parts for the 302 and T-5 swap.

So far I have acquired:

Professional Products Typhoon Intake Manifold
BG400 fuel Pump
MSD Billet Distributor
Moroso Ignition Wires and Coil
T-5 Tranny and bellhousing
Tri-y headers
Energy Suspension Motor Mounts

302 Engine out of my 1989 Mustang w/80K.
Ported/Polished E7 Heads

I am going to have the tranny apart and rebuilt by the end of next week.

Next up will be freshening the engine up with new bearings, oil pump, timing chain, Competition cam, valve springs, ect.

Wish me luck guys, I hope to have this thing running with the 5.0L before the end of fall.

I'm still driving it with the 4.0 Liter that has 180K on it right now. But it's on it's last leg.

I'll post some pictures when I start the swap.
