Call me crazy...
Found this build up because I know the kid who bought this car when it was finished. This car ran amazingly well for what it was from a dig he whooped my ass like a pissed off stepdad. I hated admitting it but it was true. From a roll it evened things up a bit but i still got beat. So I'm jumping on especially with money being tight and literally I have sourced every part needed and the total is less than a well built STOCK block 408.
This same guy also built a wickedly clean and fast Crown Vic with a lq4 and a turbo. Interesting stuff.

It is a long article but it is worth sitting down and taking a look at.
I'm not a magazine racer, my car is actually fast.
I also have a Honda civic but, mine has a bigger, uglier driver.
