Post subject:  customer's car

Thi is a job I just finished last week. It came in leaking oil and knocking. Had a couple of pistons that were scuffed up pretty bad. I figured Margaritaman and Lively would both get a kick outta this one.

I don't have much history on the car, my customer just recently purchased it and knew it had a few problems to work out. He said he thought the engine noise might be serious but had hoped it wasn't. right now it's a 302 ford with .040 over Wiseco pistons, speed pro file-fit rings, comp cams roller cam, arp studs, felpro o-ring head gaskets (w/reciever groove in the heads), main girdle & canton oil pan. It has Edelbrock performer heads and the blower is topped off with a pair of holley carbs. This all hooked up to a c-4 trans w/brake. The rear is a 9" ford with ladder bars. The front suspension is an aftermarket Mustang II a-arm/rack & pinion type. I really like working on this kind of car but the road test is the best part. =;

I hope that 302 will hold up for him, I have seen the bottom split to the lifter bores. Maybe he will just cruise it. How much boost is it set up for? =;

stroker, it's only running 6 lbs of boost, I think it'll hold up just fine. He will mostly cruise with it but said he will get with me in the spring to see about taking it to the track. I built a motor for a Mustang a couple of years ago that was set up with twin turbos. He wanted to run as much boost as possible. I did some of the same mods to that motor as this one already had. turned it up to 12 lbs. that's what the turbo guys said the turbos would take. That's a very fast street mustang. He had a time getting a trans to hold up but the motor stayed together just fine and it's still gets driven a lot.

I didn't think about a vid Tony, I have to remember that next time :-$

Yaahoo! Cool. Jury's still out on that green anodizing though. Only 6lbs? Obviously hasn't been bit by the pulley bug!

I don't know much about Fords Chuck, I just saw some pretty messed up 302 blocks. Should be a fun ride. It's probably takes alot more boost to do the damage that I saw. =;
