    seems there was a mixup in shipping and this thing showed up instead. Oh well i guess ill just use this chassis







    Its a 99 V6 Auto car originally. cloth interior but power everything. A friend of mine got it new in 99 and drove it until 2011 when he sold it to another friend who pulled the motor and was going to terminator swap it but ended up having a kid. Its sat since then and he finally asked me if i wanted to buy it since i was eyeballing mustang chassis's for this build i wanted to do. We made a deal and here it is.

    Already has a GT 8.8 under it with 4.10 gears and came with lots of extras including some mosier 31 spline chromolly axles.

    Going to test fit with the bare aluminum block i have to see if i am going to need an oil pan or not (i think im going to) and then slam the cam/valve springs into the motor and get it ready to drop in place. i think im going to end up needing to hammer the trans tunnel out a bit but ill find out once i start test fitting stuff. excited to get to work.

    Please tell me you’re gonna drop the motor and trans in at the same time. You spend too much goddamn time underneath cars

    so, with this being a drag toy, are you going to strip the interior and put a cage in?

    wife and i went out this morning to do a test fit with the bare alum block i have. wanted to see truck oilpan clearance as well as trans tunnel etc. slammed the spare truck pan i have as well as the spare heads i have on it to see what we have.



    You can see how thrilled she is. she doesnt exactly like mustangs but gets the cheap racecar idea.



    LIKE A GLOVE!





    oil pan hangs really low. going to need to order the muscle car pan.


    headed out to install the cam into the motor and see if the heads on it are castechs and if so they are coming off and the 862s i have on the shelf will be going on. Next update should have lots of fun motor pics while we are working on it.
    Might also setup the gopro in timelapse mode to video it.

    Think of all the lives that would have been saved if the CRX had showed up

    Cam and springs installed into the 5.3 saturday night.




    motor was surprisingly clean inside. no sludge at all. normal wear on the cam. just all around good looking engine. the spark plugs were new and had clean dielectric grease on them. this car was taken care of it seems. shame the kid was such a fuck.





    new cam headed to its home



    Was nice enough to put another chain/gear i had laying around on it. the other one had so much slop in it i was actually impressed



    Valve springs going in



    5.3 is an oil pan away from being ready to slam into the chassis. ordering that today.

    exciting!
