    Dropped the Gas Tank today, installed a 255LPH pump (just to make sure it doesn't starve) and beat out some dents my not too bright son put in the tank while jacking up my car. (not to mention trashing my undercar lights) Got it done before sunset. yay

    I'm impressed that you've stuck through this swap for so long. Can't imagine too many others making it to the end.
    I've been slowly restoring an 85 gt vert but have an 86 lx vert that was a v6 laying around as well as 97 vert. Also have a 97 and 04 v6 laying around and been debating what to do.

    Sounds like you should be starting up fairly soon.

    255 in a stock hanger is a bad idea. Hard to keep pressure under control.

    i was wondering how this sixer was doing... I'm starting to develop an obsession for the 3.8s somehow. Even if the CFI is difficult to please.

    The first thing I would do is "File 13" that CFI, and go with a 1997'ish 3.8 SEFI, and harness update, so it can be tuned better.

    Harness, upper and lower intakes, H pipe, o2"s and whole intake system, or a 97 or thereabouts donor motor, and if you wanted a real kick, a '99ish F-150 4.2 shortblock
