    originally a 95 v6 to 5.0 to a 4.6 3valve back in 2010. video is on you tube the first time i started it up

    [video]www.youtube.com/embed/5f3f_VEwB_o[/video]

    Ill add pictures tonight when i get home cant seem to uplaod any from where i am at

    Ive been busy with it and decided to start sharing my progress.
    I went ahead and put rear coil overs in the back from Team Z and mini tubbed it, also put a paxton 1200 sl on the 4.6 with a cnl manifold intake. front coil overs also. fuel cell in back with A1000. swapped out the stick to a built auto. went with a wolfe race craft roll cage. and currently right now the car is at the paint and body shop getting painted. i went ahead and changed it from black to the new grabber blue.

    I used the 3valve pacesetter long tubes and squeezed them in,
    but now I am going with the 2v kooks long tubes with the adaptor plates

    it is still in building stages right now its at the paint and body shop but the mini tubs are in and also the roll cage. body just needs to be put all back together

    I just need to upload some more pic's but after I got the hole thing running again, I went ahead and stripped it all down and started building it from the ground up again.

    I don't know if you saw the engine pic but I do have a return style. I went with the feed in two a crossover and a return off the regulator back to the original gas tank, but now I'm going with a fuel cell.

    Right on man you don't see enough 3v builds. I'd imagine with the oldest 3v being 9yrs old now that we'll start seeing more.

    Interested to see what power levels you end up with

    Good choice with the 3v definitely a strong engine stock with plenty of possibilities.
