I have a 87 gt I just put ford racing aluminum heads and a lunati cam and gt40 upper and lower intake on and now when I turn it over it will crank good for a second and then kinda freeze up and the negative battery cable will start smoking I haven't got it to fire yet any ideas

if you perform a voltage drop test on the power and ground of the starter, starter ground is the housing, and it is good,

something in the motor is seizing

Did you check valve clearance? maybe dist out 180?
try turning the engine over by hand, hopefully you already did this. HTH
and yes check the cables
