That thing is going to be sweet...

But that Coyote is just screaming for a 6 speed...

I can't remember the weight but it is less than 302.
The 4r has a bigger bell housing than a AOD. So we cut out some firewall.
The heater blower motor hits the head, so I am looking for a different heater assembly.
I also had to notch the suspension cross member. (I have MII suspension).
I may be stuck for a bit waiting on parts.

Isn't the new 5.0 an aluminum block and heads?

No mater what at 300+ HP it's a screamer right out of the box.

Aluminum blocks and heads.
I have driven manual mustangs. A 1970, a GT350H and I owned a SVO. I am a 6'2" and have size 14 feet. I have yet to find a car that gives me enough room to clutch well.
Feel free to stop by next time you are out this way Phil.

There's a set of Shelby Rims on Craigslist right now. They'd look sweet on your car if you don't have rims already

That will be a nice setup. I like the 5.0 and t5 setup in my 65 coupe, but if I had it to do over I would go the coyote route. A buddy is doing a 5.4 out of a gt500 into his 67 fastback and that is being a challenge as well. Good luck and keep us updated.

I had modify my crossmember.


And the oil pan:


I got some headers made for the swap. Not impressed. The passenger side hits the tranny oil pan, and they hang low, and are angled down:


They look nice otherwise:

Nice to see it come back to life dude! I can remember this car since high school almost I think, how long have you had it now? I remember it always parked out front of BK in Wasilla, of course cruising Wasilla, and at College, then it disappeared when you left for a while, then it showed back up one day, at College again I think it was. You've had this thing forever!
