    heh, *empty space*, that "other" car.

    Thats actually why I tend to find Ford things boring. Its mostly all Mustangs, and maybe a scant handful of other models that all get lumped into the "and that other stuff Ford made" category.

    The first pic is at preshow. We just met up at Timmys so we could all cruise together. As for the show itself, this was as a Mustang performance shop so no surprise that it was mostly Mustangs. Last Ford show that I went to had all kinds of Fords, not only Mustangs.

    I don't get bored with Mustangs, because of all the different things you can do with them. I like when guys build up a Mustang II, personally I think they look cool, kinda like the same vintage Ford Falcon, although the Maverick is more similar.

    I find them useful as parts cars. Otherwise, they have way too much "me too" factor. Don't get the point of them. They're not particularly comfortable to drive and the suspension sucks. I don't understand Jeeps either, but people like those too.

    yeah... my wife loves the idea of a jeep wrangler/rubicon... but I'm sure once she actually drives one and sees how truck they are, she'll rather have something else. I also don't care for stangs due to the stiff ride. My back loves my vic and LX seats with lumbar support.

    Mod Box is officially parked for the winter. I ripped the blower off again last weekend and this time it's staying off permanently. I already sold a few parts off it.

    Today ordered a set of 5 speed pedals from Pier so 5 speed will be going in come spring time. Maybe sooner if we have warm winter. I also placed and order on Australian Boss 260 intake so DOHC 5.4 swap will be happening as well.

    DOHC 5.4. That's gonna be interesting, for sure.

    I think a blown DOHC 5.4 with 5spd in that car would be killer, needs to happen.

    5.4 DOHC is only about 40 pounds heavier than 4.6 SOHC. With blower, intercooler and all the pipes my 4.6 was probably weighting just as much if not more than the 5.4. I am already running Moog variable rate coils in the front so I should be ok. 5 speed also weights less than auto so I might actually drop the weight when all is said and done. haha

    As much as I like the sound of a blown 5.4 I am sticking with na. It should still be good for about 400 RWHP which will make me more than happy.

    I want a Procharged Coyote Fox Body, preferably notchback. I'd fully cage it, otherwise I'd probably kill myself in it.

    Still, DOHC 5.4 build is gonna rock. On that note, does anyone have info on what was done to the DOHC 5.4 for use in the 2000 Cobra R? Those had nearly the power of the Terminator but n/a. I don't think I could resist throwing a blower on it if I had one, make a GT500 powerplant out of it.

    Cobra Rs had better flowing heads, different cams, forged everything, different compression ratio and different intake. A Navi motor with C heads and Aussie intake should come close to making similar numbers.

    I wish Ford had upgraded the 4V 5.4 and continued it's used in the Navigator, the Coyote is proof that 4V heads have more potential than 3V. They could have easily squeezed another 50hp/tq out of it, they thought it was good enough for the Shelby, not to mention the GT.
