Sorry to hear that man:(

I know there is a lot you'll need to change like ECU and stuff like that, not to mention upgrading brakes, exhaust, etc. But I'm not really familar with the specifics.

Bossman, let me know if you find a wiring guru. Good luck with the install.:thumbsup:

Well I'm not to bad at wiring. I think I've figured out the wiring already. I'm going to get a tubular K-member and a set of long tube headers.

John, if you need any help let me know. I've done a couple of jeeps and a couple of drag cars.

Jon, just come up to the house and start ripping it out. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: I appreciate the offer I'll talk to you about it.

ok... another dumb question... was the 01 yours or was it something you picked appart? and did you happen to be able to pull the wire harness from the dash/engine bay?

good luck, this is a BIG task you have your self doing!

The car belonged to a friend of mine. It was rear ended by a dump truck. He only had it for two weeks. I have the wiring harness, computer, and everything else I should need. The good thing that I have found out about ford is that it should swap in easily. I have the heads off right now so I can port and polish them, and I'm waiting on my new cams to come in from SHM. I still have some more parts to buy so I should have it in by the end of summer. I can't wait I'm finally going to have some power in my daily driver.:D

since you are in to it that far, you may want to consider going with forged pistons/rods. it will save you a bundle to do now rather than later. also, are you going to keep the v6 badging? kind of like the sleeper look? I would!!

thats cool you have the harness/comp etc! it will make it alot easier. I have swapped out ford motors before (in trucks like going from a 300 in line 6 to a 351w) and with a little customizing it is a relatively easy job. good luck and keep us posted
