My Project EAT IMPORT TURBO CARS!

Well I know its been a while since I posted anything on this Can or Worms I bought but Ive be slowly working on it cleaning it up and hopes to driving it to Kentucky this fall for the big svo meet. :)
I do have another toy other than the rangers.. Plans are to run 12's by fall with this thing just soo I can put some fear into some Import's eye's
Heres some pics.. I cleaned the crap out of the engine bay, painted it fixed a couple small areas of rust with soem weld and patch's, Cleaned and inspected all the wires to the harness and replaced a few bad pigtails.. And loomed the entire thing. I just finished today cleaning up the shortblock thats gonna be going back into it.. Turnes out the motor I had in the car was rebuilt with .030over TRW pistons. soo its going back in with a totally rebuilt head new headgasket and a powercoated ported intake and powder coated Valve cover to match :).. heres some before and after of the engine bay and a few of the motor

hey man i got another block if you want lol. well actually its out of a turbo coupe, but same difference.

actually i have a question for you.. i have the same valve cover as your svo, how is that breather held on?? on my cover it has a hump with a hole in it, and i cant find a breather anywhere. i even called the mustang place down the street here, they were no help.

My breather is held on just but basically popping it in there with a rubber grommet... If I recall you have the dip down v/c... its lower in the center for the Throttle body to fit.. if soo I dont think those have breathers... I was just lookin at one today in a scap yard and i dont recall seeing one..

Yes its gonna have a nice Holset Hairdryer... from a Cummins Dodge :)
