    Well hopfully I will be working on the mustang soon my foot is healing up. but the docotr ants me to stay off of it. I want to get my passengerside header out because I lack to bolts but we will see if i am up for it. I ordered some parts today from summit arp main studs,arphead studs,arp balancer bolts, and arp cam bolts, I also ordered a canton windage tray all I need now is the stroker kit and I am done ordering so anyways I will hopfully get some more update pics as soon as i am able to work on the stang!!!

    Alright so with a 15 min time of my fathers help i got the last bolt out so I know can say both headers are out. I t was so hard cuz i did it with the valve cover on. I will take the valve cover off when installing them. But for now. I will work on it a little every night till i am ready to pull the motor so here are a couple pics!!

    Re: Ranthemans! Build Thread!!!---Tearing apart!

    dalamar I need to ask you a couple questions on it was are your specs like rod lenght pistons cc's and stroke cuz I am confused on why a 3.75 stroke with a 5.8 rod and a 0cc-10.5cc and a 18cc stick out of the block .003 and a 3.75 stroke with a 5.933 rod with a 21cc pistons doesn't. I just wanted to know if you still had some deck clearence or not

    fets a windage tray keep the oil off the crank itself and also keep the winds down generated by the mass rotating assembly
