My new project


MustangMyWay

Recommended Posts

Greetings all.

I recently bought into a breed of Mustang that I have long wanted. Now is not the best time to invest in a project but a better time might not come.

It's a '73 Q code with no drive train. After much deliberation, I have decided that I want to drop a Coyote plant in there since I have long fascinated about EFI. While I wait for the engine to drop into my lap I have some body work to do. This includes cutting out the quarters to accommodate the largest wheels/tires that I can find.

Welcome to the Forum from Ft Walton Beach Florida.

I'm in the same position of waiting to snag a Coyote 5.0. Though I do get to drive the vert around while waiting.

Did'ja know...The engine in a Mustang & F150 are the same, with differences only being The TUNE, exhaust manifolds, and the intakes vary slightly. So don't let a donor F150 get away. The 6R80 is going to become a viable tranny soon too.

You'll find the forum a friendy and knowledgeable place.

BTW these guys luv photos, so add a bunch.

Thanks for the auction link.

If you're from Clinton twp. then you know where Roseville is. Clinton just had it's cruise Sunday.

I will show pictures when there are things worth seeing.

I will certainly lean on the knowledge base here and I thank you all.
