Here is some pictures of my first mustang build.











I bought this fresh rebuilt trans for $100 and I did not paint it red

This is a 1984 mustang LX with a factory v6 and it is my first mustang build ever. I have a 429 that I bought from a guy for $700 that he only put about 2,000 miles on. It is bored .030 over with speedpro forged flattop pistons, truck rods with arp bolts (not real thrilled with this either), balanced, 0 decked, high volume oil pump, ARP oil pump shaft. It has a nice double roller 9 keyway timing chain on it, cam is a cam research 300B1-10 specs are 645 in. lift and 645 ex. lift, dur. @ .050 is 260 in. 262 ex. , ls 110. Weiand stealth intake, 950 prosystems holley carb, using hooker super comp full length headers , 2,800 - 3,000 10" stall that is custom built to pull at lower rpm's so it don't slip as bad, 8.8 rearend with 3.73 gears and c-clip eliminators, subframe connectors. When it goes to the track I will bolt on a set of 28 x 10 x 15" slicks. Using D3VE-A2A heads with 2.25 and 1.76 valves, and 1.7 crane rocker arms, guide plates, 3/8 pushrods. I am supposed to get the stall and fiberglass hood in tomorrow if I do I will post pics.

He can. 1.5 inch k frame spacers and a Torker II intake with no carb spacer. It barely fits, but I would drive it around JUST LIKE THAT.

Super sleeper with 2 hubcaps.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

10" stall converter 2800 - 3000 rpm. The shop custom built it to pull good at lower rpm's but stall when you stand on the gas. We will see how it works.

I was thinking about getting a fiberglass trunk lid. Anybody ever run a fiberglass trunk lid?

Doesnt the F in the part number on the piston mean Forged? I thought hypers would have a P or H in place of the F.

I stand corrected, you made me look up the part number on the pistons and yes the L2366F means forged and if it started with an H that means hyper. That makes me feel better now. Thank you for that.

I was told they were hyper pistons, but never looked that hard at them.

EDIT:

Here is the site I looked them up on
