Everythings going great so far in the build processes. I've planned for this for over 6 months. With everyones help and information I was able to organize my-self and "My Garage" to make this build go smooth. What also is making things easy, is my son and I went thru the entire build manual and organized the parts in the order of the build. Does 2 things, helped me inventor all the parts and I'm not searching for a nut when I'm in the middle of something heavy/critical. I've set a them for this build and I't definatley "Organization". I'm not rushing this build at all, everythings just falling into place.

Phil,

   That's a GREAT piece of advise.  Order the parts, nuts, bolts etc, by the respective steps in the manual.  I learned this about 1/2 way through and it made the build much smoother.  A little prep work in advance, pays off in the long run.

Cheers,
Ryan Cassidy

Excellent Phil!!! I like your wheels, the Torque Thrusts are one of my favorites. Your engine looks fantastic. Tell us a little more about what you've done with it. What kind of power will you be making? Your making a lot of progress and things are really looking good.

Too sweet Phil! 8-)
That looks awesome!
I would also like to hear more about that engine.
Just asking because I don't know but are the front tires on the correct sides? I don't know much about these new-fangled directional tires! ;D

Yes...The Tires are on wrong....I was in such a hurry to just see them on the car, I didnt think about them being directional. I didnt notice until I downloaded the pics from my camera and went to post them on the site.....They will be corrected this evening.

Motor
Jegs Aluminum Heads 58cc Combustion/170cc Intake runner, 2.02 intake and 1.60 exhaust valve
Jegs Roller Rockers
Z-303 Cam - 290 deg duration, .552 lift
Edelbrock 650 cfm manual chock carb.
Edelbrock Intake Manifold
Eagle Ford 347 Stroker Kit - 3.400" Stroke, 5.400 Rod, 4.030 Bore, -6.5cc Flat Top Piston, 10.7:1 Compression w/ 58cc head
Cloytes Timing chain
New Roller Tappets
New Push Rods
New Oil Pump
ETC...........

I'm Shooting for 400Hp. Its gonna be close. Only reason is that I went with a cheaper head vs the AFR's I originally calculated for. But, for $400 less the Jegs head spec'd out the same as the AFR. So, we will see.
This Motor was taken out of a 93 Mustang. My son and tore it down, and build the motor you see now. A HUGE milestone for myself. I've Never Built a motor before.

I'm guessing 400 HP is going to be pretty easy with the set up. Should be a screamer!

Thanks Phil,
The motor sounds great. Thats a nice selection of parts that you put into it. Like Larry said, 400HP ought to right in line with your parts selection. I know you can't wait to hear it.

Phil,

What is the width and the back spacing of your wheels ( front and back)?
