    For starters, the engine isn't going to be meant for 500+Hp
    It probly wont even make 400, but we expect somewhere in the 300's N/A
    The Tranny will be taken out and changed to a C4 probly, depending on what we come across.
    Hopefully the car does great >:D

    Parts list:
    So we got the 5.0 Block from a burnt mustang that was in good shape.
    we had it vatted and bored 30 over,
    new cam bearings
    and freeze plugs
    SRP Pistons *Flat top*
    347 Eagle crank.
    E303 Cam
    Roller rockers
    And much more but i don't feel like walking down stairs and writing everything else down.


    But when i got home we worked on the bottum end, and are working on the pistons etc. Getting the bottum end ready.
    Yes the engine was balanced etc.
    O yea if you notice something wrong, please do say so. This is our Father/Son project and are new to building a engine.

    And now time for pics O0
    Hope you guys like the engine
