I was actually going for infinite MPG

The susp had to come off to help them get the motor out easier. And the motor is getting a little more work done after the #3 plug blew out of the head.

It is already lowered. If you look you can see my dirty Tokico 5-Ways hanging from the CCs, not pictured are my H&R Race springs. I am running no isos in the front and one iso in the rear. Also not pictured are my bump steer kit and a few other things.

Yep...for this cars current application I don't need to go further then those. I already replaced the weakest part of the internals so this motor is good for whatever the block can take. In theory...

I'm jealous of your mustang dude. What all are you doing to the engine while it's out? I know you said head's because your plug blew or w/e.

It's going to be sick

Just a few odds and ends that need to be taken care of. Both heads are going to the machine shop for some work, bottom end is getting freshened up a bit with some new stuff here and there, timing chain and gears redone, trans is getting freshened(new fluids, check gears, it was rebuilt like 2k ago), all the fluids flushed, rear gear fluid, new u-joints, and a few other things. All work while the heads are at the machinist.

I hope so...it seems that every other week the car is at the shop, most of the time for new stuff but still .

Forgot to mention that the tune will be changed a bit...nothing too radical but still changed.

Nice, I just thought that was a '03 Cobra problem, but I guess not. Heck, while you've got it out, you should do a 4v conversion. I'd hate to see that labor bill!

in my 94' one day i was going up the mountain up interstate 77 and i noticed my 4 banger was weaker than usual (i usually couldnt maintain 55 up the mountain in that ol truck on a good day) well i couldnt maintain 45 onthis day, but i got to where i was going...

on my way back, something popped, and all of a sudden the truck started running HARD, i pulled over and i popped the hood, at first, i didnt notice anything, then i seen that the liner underneath the hood (whick WAS perfect) now had a damn hole in it! then i got to looking and there i seen it, one of the sparkplugs was dangling by the plug wire....

i looked closer and all that was left to the plug was the ceramic part!, luckily, it just blew that part out of the metal threads, they were still in the block (all i had to do was put a socket to it and they came out)

i had never seen anything like tht!
