    well it was an interesting one got the car all ready running driveing car Had loads of power was kinda retarted
    and then the knocking began and got worse and worse and worse so this is how i spent my sunday/fathers day
    spun a bearing int he bottem end so now the single port goes bye bye and say hello to a splitport Swap
    we had the engine out in a few hours and pulled apart to see the problem

    Congrats on the split port swap. Are you piecing together the swap yourself or through RPM, SuperSix or who?

    what happened to the windstar intake?
    but as snakebit said making good progress, are you doing this all by yourself?

    i am awaiting on a 45* bend from the TB to the IC piping for the blower until that comes in and we figure out the piping issues i will be running the stock split port upper
    ive got a dyno run the 7th of july but i wana put some milage on it befor hand with the stock intake
    also for the most part i am doing it by my self my GF helped when i pulled the motor and when i was puttin the new block back together
    but for the most parts its all me
    i work on average 45HR a week and well in one week and 2days i have the old engine out the engine bay/trans and drive shaft tunnel and floor painted
    new motor put together and in the car
    a few hours to go and she should fire up no problem

    oh ok. are you goin to paint any of the intake, intake piping. or any other parts? you are one fast worker. hope the engine turns over, and that everything goes good.
