Awesome! Its gonna be sweet! You gotta take it by Ford and get the PATS synced before it will be running, correct?

Oh by the way, not thread jacking, but the other Dude posted a vid of his pony idling in the driveway. Looked ok and sounded good, but really said nothing about the car. SO.... here's something you might find a little more impressive. Pay attention to the tach and speedo, specifically when it I change gears.

Well, if you are driving a manual (Talking above about makign it snappy) Getting a real light flywheel is step 1.. that pops your revs up and down nice and quick.. big change in driving! I wanted to check a machine shop to see if they coudl lighten mine down a bit - but I jsut didnt have the cash at the time when I went to get my transmission rebuilt an d having my spec stage 2 clutch put in

Its cool, Yes the 302 is in the windsor familey, but its always refered to as a "302" where as the 351 could be a windsor or a clevland. So the 351w is commonly refered to as just a windsor.

By the way, looking good Mudslanger!

Hey man, any more pictures? Your build has given me inspiration to swap in a 5.0 into my ranger. Thanks, I now have turbo flanges, intercooler and a whole bunch of piping that are going to be put on the shelf.

Build's looking awesome...keep it going...
