    Ok well I am gonna start this thread with hopes that I will be able to update it rapidly but I am sure the process is going to be long and drawn out. I am really unclear of any of the internal work done but I can go by what the previous owner told me. So here we go;


    1995 GT
    Supposed 347 stroker
    351 roller cam
    65MM Throttle body
    BBK CAI
    Cobra hood
    Cobra rims (black plasti-dipped)
    Eibach sport springs
    Short throw shifter (unsure of the brand)
    Headers w/ Off Road pipe
    Exhaust ? brand with cut outs.
    Has A/C and Smog removed but still has both compressors in place. [​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    I got a lot of plans I want to do with this so I just gotta get the cash to do it.
    Future plans (short list)
    New exhaust (Flowmasters I am pretty sure)
    New headers
    Upgraded ignition (MSD)
    Paint and body work
    Finish suspension (Control Arms and sway bars along with caster/camber plates)
    So I will update as time and $$ allows!

    Thanks for lookin!

    that's a good start.
    Why would someone build the bottom end and put the stock intake and valve covers back on?

    Good question, I am not sure if a lot of things weren't replaced, He said there is also gears in it also but why go through all the trouble of doing gears and springs and leaving the flimsy stock control arms? Those would have been the first thing I got rid of, but a lot of people don't think like I do so to each his own I guess.

    Like I said though I can only go by what I was told at the trade. I do know it has one hell of a cam in it though just not sure on the specs.

    Gotcha, if you are ever in the area let me know, and you can stop by the shop if you want. I have had a couple members stop by in the last year or so and its always a good time.

    Only a couple small things as of now to update.

    MSD cap, rotor and Coil
    Ford Racing 9mm plug wires
    SR C.A.I.

    Also went through and removed the A/C compressor and condenser as well as the smog pump. And took the plasti-dip off the rims. [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    Looks good, the rims look much better with the dip off, I'm sure it does it's job protecting in the winter tho
