    hello all, I am in the process of gathering all the necessary parts for swapping out my worn out 289/ c-4 with a nice 351w/ AOD. The question I have (one of many) it to those that have done this swap before, is what headers did you use? I have been looking at a few options...

    I picked up a T5 from a 5.0L 'Stang some time back. I have everything but the bell-housing. It's a 95 so I'll need a 6 bolt adapter of the proper year set to fit the longer input shaft. Other than a clutch kit, the spacer, shorter input shaft and bearing retainer, is there anything else I'll...

    I got a hold of a 1977 Ford box truck with a 460 engine in it with 77,157 original miles!, but it turns out that the back registration is $2500 to put it on the road. Soooooo, I was thinking of pulling the engine and trans, and scrapping the body. I intend on keeping it very stock, considering...
