    Dunno what exactly is needed and what the kit came with so any help will be sweet. This will be the first mod to my stang in awhile so it should be
    worth it

    Well you really don't need anything but tool's if you bought the Livernois kit. If you want to disconnect the fuel rail's you'll need the fuel line tool, but you don't have to to get the intake off.

    As far as I know it comes with the temp location drilled. Some car's require a new alt bracket, which I would imagine would also be included.

    New alt bracket and heater hoses. But you can reuse your old hoses if you have to.

    Your also gonna need new coolant. You can shut off the fuel from the trunk.

    like was said you wanna go to your trunk and unhook the harness thats plugged into the fuel pump reset button. then start and run your car until it dies. it will unpressurize your fuel line for the most part. other than that its a pretty straight forward swap. i put all the bolts i took out into bags and labeled them and also took a picture of my engine bay before i start so i new where all the wiring harness routed to.

    Man you said it there. Label EVERYTHING and pics from all angle are a big plus. Oh and Im assuming they sent you the new water pump tube and nipple ?

    The first time I did my swap ,I ALMOST forgot to take before pics. It would have been a PITA without them. The nice thing about having it disconnected is that you can lay it out the way you want when you reconnect.

    I used to work at a Ford assembly plant. The way they design the layout is to make the installation process easier and more efficient (faster) for assembly line workers so the line speed can keep goin.. "Looks" is not their primary concern.

    cool thanks guys, I will definatly keep you guys posted. Hope all goes well for me when trying it. i figure whats the point
    in owning a car and having someone else do all the work for you!! Cant wait to get it in and then get my 4.10s and LTs in as well.

    Also is anyone here going to the International Mustang Meet in Great Falls Montana on Sept. long weekend?
    im going and it would be cool to catch up with some of your guys there haha
