Welp sadly summers over, Cars been beat on and found the 12 owner,150k past i think this car needs a good build like she deserves! I just got a better paying job so my parts should be pretty easy into getting.
First things first, the tranny needs to rebuilt. Anyone know any decent shops around suffolk that wont rip me out? I'm good with motors but for transmisson im baffled.
Second, Before i put a 351w in this baby comes the most important part! Suspension! Thinking about a eibach coilovers, ford racing control arms, bbk upper and lowers which i already have. Any other suggestions that are often overlooked?
Third, drivetrain. Heard some good and some bad about triple plated clutches. Has anyone run one? How are they driving everyday with?
With the 351 going into it in a year or so should i put a new driveshaft into it?
Also the rear end is getting new seals, bearings, and new ford racing 3.73s
Finally, the 351w. Shes coming from a good home from one of my buddys that ripped it out for a build he was looking for his lightning. The motors got very low mileage and always taken care of. Im mostly just looking for a fcam and some nice heads.
If anyone has used any of theses parts id appreciate it before i get into a headache breaking things down the road!
