Previously totaled, clean title 2000 GT drop-top rebuild!
FROM RAGS TO RICHES!!!! Just to let you all know, I don't baby this car! It's too much fun to just look at, I love to beat on it too. Nothing has gone wrong, and if it ever does...its the perfect reason to build it better! It is however very clean and well maintained, I believe that's very important obviously!
4.6 FORGED BLOWER MOTOR SOLD!! It was built by More Power Motorsports of Sparta, MI. This engine consists of: -Brand new 4.6 steel block
-used timing cover
-timing chain set
-Comp Cams adjustable cam gears
-Comp Cams .545 lift blower cams
-Manley H beams w/ ARP 2000 bolts
-JE 17cc pistons
-.020 block hone
-balance the rotating assembly
-All ARP hardware
-New Ford lifters
-All new gaskets
-timing chain kit
-FRPP high volume oil pump
-Morosso 7qt. oil pan
-Canton windage tray
-machined aluminum heads w/ Comp springs
-Cobra forged crank
-Ferrea stainless valves
-New Ford OEM valve covers
Everything was purchased brand new to be used for this engine! Its finished and now I have a house. It is 284cid and has 9.1:1 comp, awesome for boost!! Contact me with any questions or interest. I have the blueprints to go with it! This engine will support 600+ rwhp!
Short block before finishing. Beautiful JE's in fresh preped block w/ ARP studs.
Brand new ported and polished PI Windsor heads ready for stainless valves.
Finished long block waiting for Kenne Bell 2.1L blower setup! And oil of course.
Both pics taken at Grand Haven State Park, summer `07.
Thank you for looking at my page. I bought the Mustang wrecked in October `04, hit in the front and lightly rolled over with a clean title. My dad and I re-built the car the way we wanted it and I started driving it in summer `05. We started with making the car a real head turner first, I wanted something totally badass looking. Then moved to bolt-on parts one after another, and finally I'm planning to have an engine built for it! I have funded the whole thing, not my dad, but I have however took full advantage of my dad's talent in body work. THE ART OF INVISIBLE REPAIR! Was this car ever smashed, you tell me?
The body of the car has an APC Demon body kit, Cervinis hood and side scoops, and lambo doors. The whole car was repainted with stock Ford Performance Red. The car is lowered 2.7" in the back with Eibach Sportline springs, and about 2.5" in the front with a Granatelli coilover kit, tubular A-arms and K-member. I added aftermarked headlights/taillights, a billet grill, and stainless insert letters (all from eBay)! 18x9/18x10 Chrome Saleen look-alike rims are wrapped in BFGoodrich KDW tires. I'm always open for new ideas for this car, but the next major upgrade will be the engine. Since I'm only working with 281CID, a blower and cams will be my best bet to make big HP.
I've done a few car shows around Grand Rapids and done pretty well. Most recent is the GR Autorama. My favorite is the All Ford and Mustang show in the spring, it's awesome to see all those glamorous Mustangs all in one place. The car has been pretty much all show since I've started it, but that'll change this year when that motor is built!!
Installed lambo's winter `05. Pretty happy with the kit off from Ebay, and looks great at car shows!
The rear-end was re-done with Moser 31-spline axles, Motive 3.90's, a new FRPP supportive diff. cover, and then stipped and repainted and cleared!
Mustang on my friend Charlie's car trailer we borrowed for the Grand Rapids 39th Annual Autorama!! (Jan.11-13) A couple pics from Autorama Jan. 11-13. Won Best of Show in my class, and the Rising Star award for Best Engine! Not bad for the car's first entry in the GR Autorama!
