Nice! Little by little, little by little. The last bits take the most time, but it's the most fun

What mounts and headers are your running on that?

I had the Gen I on mine, and the eng was so high I took em off, got a set of mounts and ceramic headers if anyone needs em.

I also had those Canton Valve Covers, they take up a lot of real estate.

Can you put a K&N Drop filter there, a little smaller filter, then run the Boss or take a boss and add to it. Its just fiberglass, that would be piece of cake to extend the boss scoop a few inches.

I am not sure what gen they came with car the paper says 2 1/8 size . I know it sits the engine forward a bit I think. What headers you selling? I may be interested in replacing the ones I have for a newer set. The ones I have seem to sit low

Default SWEEEEET!!!!

Just read through your whole post and first off...... DAM* SWEET RIDE!!!!! Beautiful from the color to the detail!!! You definitely got a beauty on your hands!!!! Will keep watching to see how it all comes together.

I saw you went the E85 way.... I had to get my engine and blower to cool down A LOT quicker... and even more so, not to heat up in the first place. I was told to go that route but there is very limited access to that. So I opted for full alcohol through my Enderle injection. I ran 110-112 this summer and when I switched to the 8-71 Hampton with Teflon stripping my temps got out of control as well as my blower boost... PEGGED THE GAUGE AT 25 PSI.... should have scattered something but I think a weak trans saved me.

Anyways...... LOVE YOUR RIDE!!!! Good luck with it and keep posting!!!!

Later, Auggie

I gave up thinking more about this subject until it's ready to hit the road. The cowl idea is the last option I think. I wanted to avoid the whole prostock but that might be my only option. I like the prostock scoops but just not sure yet. decisions decisions.
Put a Boss 429 scoop on top of a cowl.

Mine were Gen I, they sit the eng up higher, and forward, but its basically the same set up Ford used to put the Boss into the Mustangs. When I put them in mine, I had to modify the trans cross member to allow the tranny to come forward an inch or so. The Gen II and the kit that I have on mine lowers the eng significantly and puts it back in the same location as my small block was.

PM an email address and I can send you pics of what they looked like in my car. But even with the GEN Is you should be able to use the Boss Scoop with a different filter, like is noted, its the same location as the orig Boss.

ACtually just go look at my Project 532 Gydyup thread http://www.460ford.com/forum/showthread.php?t=152085 the first page has a lot of pics of the car with the GEN I kit and headers. You can scroll through that and see the later installed kit I have now, I put and MPG in it, but the guy was a pain in the *** and I had to signficantly modify the headers to make em work. I wouldnt recommend them.

Gydyup, I checked out your build, nice work! Well, after looking at the first page with the headers, mine are not Gen I headers. I think I will stick with my set until I'm ready to change to the front end in a couple of years.

Thanks Auggie man! I found a company a few miles down the road that will sell me 55 gallons of E98 for 209 a drum (Sapp Brothers) , delivered to the house for 6 bucks. So I think I'm going to go this route and use the local E85 to cut it down to where I want it. By the way you have a beautiful ride man.

Thanks Butterbean, so if I have 14.1 compression what do you think would be a good spot? Correct me if I'm wrong but I read somewhere that E98 is equivalent to 117-120 octane and E85 105-107? Tell me if this makes sense or not. So based on that info I was thinking about trying to cut it down to to about E90-E95. I've read guys running E85 in 16.1 compression engines and I'm trying to make sense of how can a an engine with that high of compression run a fuel that is equivalent to about 105 octane. This is a serious question that I've been trying to understand. when someone asks me how can a 16.1 compression engine run successfully on E-85, I always end up quoting Joe Dirt's Dad, "How exactly does a posi-trac rear-end on a Plymouth work? It just does." I hope I can be enlightened on the subject
