This just doesn’t look right.

What's up with this? Did you send the block out? Are you ordering parts like a madman?
Haven’t touched in a couple weeks, motor is still sitting in the garage, still need to find a builder. Still need to remove the dash, and the rest of the electrical. Still need to decide whether or not I want a sweet paint job or not, I kinda like the mad max look. Need a parts list for a T5 swap. I have ideas on what I want for the rear end, Custom 4 link 9 inch with pan had bar, but I need to finish the research.

all in all, I still need to finish disassembly, and make up my mind on the direction I want to go. Still haven’t ruled out a coyote swap.

Ohh Boy! Thing will fly!
You can certainly strip it while you have a few beers and contemplate where to go? Take a lot of pictures both for yourself when you rebuild and for us who aren't able to drive our own rigs.

Go to junkyard.

Pull 4.6 4V from Aviator, Marauder, Cobra, Mark VIII, or Continental (you'll need an adapter plate from Ebay for the Continental).

Add about 8 lbs. of boost.

Save money.

Make more power than Coyote and look and sound better doing it.

Forgot to add, pull the transmission while you're at it (except the Continental, you'll be using a 302-bell transmission with it).
