    Off of craigslist. I got it for $380. I already have 2 different upper intakes for gt40 lowers, the box intake and the tubular.

    CJ Pony Parts sent me an engine harness! That's the last of my overtime money for a while. The wagon was $500. This engine harness cost more than the wagon! Hahahaha! Lol!

    Haha, I thought that would probably be spendy. At least you don't have to worry about your wiring AT ALL now! Mine is 24 years old!

    Yeah. I think I am going to leave battery on the right side now and flip the upper intake so that air filter is on driver's side. We'll see. Spring is just around the corner. I need so many parts. Ugh!

    Possible upper intakes.

    If you put the GT40 tubular upper on there, you could put a Lightning plaque on it!

    I like it! But it's certainly not gonna fit under the hood! I am considering a kenne bell that mates to a gt40 lower.

    I've got a fabricator that you need to get in touch with.



    He is doing a set up for me. The EFI tunnel ram being fed by a side mounted M112 (03 Cobra Eaton)............. No care if no hood. BOOST IT!!!!!

    Houston! We have a problem! I finally bought the trans slip yoke I needed to mate the ford explorer driveshaft with tremec transmission! The driveshaft is too long! It is just a hair too long! Like 1/2 an inch too long! With the irs differential tucked up the way it is, the driveshaft line must've "shortened" when compared to the solid rear axle driveshaft line. I have to cheat the engine & trans forward if possible. Maybe play with pinion angle at the rear. Not sure, but something will have to be done.

    Bummer. I had a driveshaft shortened once. Cost like $100.

    Yeah, this driveshaft is too close to being right for me to shorten it. I really doubt I will find another ford application with an aluminum driveshaft that is 1/2 inch shorter than this one. I just need to stretch the distance between the rear and the trans somehow. I could probably have 1/8 of an inch machined off of the face of the tail shaft and be ok!

    I really like this project. Reminds me of the '80 Mercury Zephyr wagon I had in high school and college - white with wood panel in the middle, but mine only had the 200 c.i. straight 6 and C3 trans. Would have loved your set-up.


    By the way...I remember John Hunkins' Excaliber in early issues of Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords.

    Had it when we lived in the path of hurricane Hugo. A couple of trees had their way with it and banged it up pretty badly. Almost 10 yrs old with over 200,000 miles on it - couldn't justify repairs. Drove it like that another year before replacing it with a new truck.

    Ouch! Sandy got us recently. Lots of downed wires and trees. Luckily we were spared any major damage. Welcome to Four Eyed Pride!

    I bought a stock cobra exhaust for that quiet sleeper exhaust. Also I ordered front differential mount solid bushings so I can try to adjust pinion angle in the hopes of pulling the slip yoke away from tailshaft housing a little bit. The cobra r rims that used to be on the white car are 2 different offsets front and rear. If I can restore them and get them painted I will give up a little of that sleeper look to have 17x9 cobra r's front and back!

    I bought an engine out of a 1995 ford lightning pickup truck. I even got the fuel rails, thermactor tubing, and throttle body!
