Here is a little info and some pictures of a coupe Mustang I put together over the past few months.

It's a 1979 Coupe (I wish It had the 4 eye front end on it) with 92 Front end and Dash. The motor is out of a 99ss Camaro that had 59k on it. Here is a list of parts I used to get it together:

Stock motor with V3 Cam and Fast 78 Intake
Built 4L60e Transmission with Yank 3600 stall
AJE Kemeber
Custom built trans cross member
1 7/8 Kooks headers
Custom X-Pipe
Spear Tech wiring harness
Weldon Fuel pump with #10 to pump, #8 to rails and #6 return
BeCool Fbody radiatos and electric fans
Custom built driveshaft
B&M Pro stick shifter

I know I'm missin a lot of small odds and ends... Over all this car has been a great build. I'm getting over 20mpg on the highway and drives like a new car but 1/2 the cost.

I do not have dyno numbers but I do have track times. my 1st pass in the car on 18" radial tires I went a 11.70, 2 weeks later I took it back to the track and I went an 11.53 on Slicks.

I ordered a set of PRC Ported LS6 heads and should be here this week. Looking to get into the 10's all motor then I'm going to spray it in the 9's.

This was an 11.56 pass, the 11.53 pass video was cut off early:

11.70 on Radial tires:

Here are a few pictures of the car being put together and after. I still need to do some body work and clean under the hood:

Thanks, I'm in the process of helping my Brother put a LS1 in his Coupe. When we actually start I'm going to get a good build thread going on it.

Great looking car and a very clean swap. I see you kept the A/C compressor on the motor. Planing to hook it all up and make it work soon?

Yes, Since the weather is getting colder I'm going to hold off until it is needed. I had to hook up the heater last week... LOL
