    Got her home... Cannot wait to get started on this swap. Just hope the motor is ok. Gonna swap on my fuel rail pressure regulator and see if she fires. Then im gonna start ripping it out of there. Wiring harness and all. I think i may even swap the radiator over. Everything is backwards, and instead of using money on a cobra/Mach intake, i think ill just do a BATT relocate. :) ITS A HAPPY DAY

    The panther guys are BLOWING MY PHONE UP since i posted parts for sale. Should have plenty of money for what i want to do to this motor!

    This is going to be fun! I'm looking forward to watching this happen. What are you plans as far as the engine is concerned?

    Not sure yet... My main idea for getting it was to put a terminator blower right on top of it. It wasnt supposed to be running, but i just put a battery charger on it and it fired up... LOL
    I can hear the chain guides are bad but, hell... now i dont need to pull the heads off at least.

    Wasnt the car left at your place of employment? File for a mechanics lien and if they don't respond then the title is issued to you. At least here in Ohio it's that way.

    Yes, its complicated... The shops going through an ownership change and the only way i could get the car was to just pay 400 cash and call it done so they could get it out of there. Old shop owner didnt want to bother with getting titles... But like i said.... $400 is what i paid for a 2004 mercury marauder that runs... and has a 4v for my mustang. :)

    The roller would be worth a ton of money if i had the title. I may see what i can do about this.

    I'm not sure about where you live, but in Indiana you can petition the court to have a new title issued. You just have to convince the judge as to why they should issue you a new title... it's really not that hard to do. Possession is 9/10 of the law, or so they say.

    Yea, i was thinking about it. I think ill start one later today when i start cleaning stuff up. I found broken stuff in there too...:shocked: Hopefully an easy fix.

    FOUND OUT THE MARAUDER LOWER INTAKE IS THE SAME AS MACHS AND COBRAS ALSO! ONLY NEED THE UPPER PLENUM IF I EVEN BOTHER WITH IT.
    I THINK ITD BE KINDA DIFFERENT AND COOL POINTING THE OTHER WAY THOUGH. HEHEH
