dad bought a 07 c6 a few months back, shortly after i got a bone stock 90 GT. then came those words "wana race". i told him "give me one year".well, the start of my new, huge, limitless money pit as takin off. got my motor and trans yesterday. motor looks great. looks like a fresh rebuild. i got it from a friend whos dad was building it so not sure yet on how much machine work, pistons, rods, crank. pistons look new from outside and theres some work done to heads. goin with edelbrock RPM heads and intake though. if every thing is in as good a shape as i think ill put it in as is, and go from there. so an engine stand, motor mounts, dizzy, ign sys, carb and headers are next on my list. then drive shaft, axles, gears and dif. then heads and intake and..and.. cant wait to get started. heres some pics of what i got so for..


















oh, can any one tell me what hp/tq a stoker c6 yoke is good for? need one of em so any info would be great. any other BBF fox guys out there that might have any tips? i hear a 460 truck oil pan and rear sump will work. can anyone verify? ive seen the swap kits but just tryin to save a buck or two.

I used the Ford Racing 460 Fox Swap Oil Pan on my 89 Mustang.I think Ford Racing also sells the motor mount swap kit that works with the Hooker 460 Fox Swap headers.I think the stock 5.0 front springs will be okay with the 460 i still have the stock 4 cylinder springs on my car.If you have any other questions just ask i'll try to help here's a picture of my car i have a lot of pictures i could e-mail to you,Later Mark.

Yes, an oil pan from 80"s though mid nineties truck will work fine. They even have a screw in dipstick tube which a think is better than the Motorsport pan with a O ring dipstick tube.

The pans that work are usually on 4WD trucks alot of the 2WD have a huge rear sump pan not the double sump . I believe the 2WD pans are like 8 quarts but dont come close to working . The motorsport pan kit is down to $125 comes with pan , pick-up , dipstick , and one piece pan gasket the one piece gasket alone was 50 bucks last time I checked .

Traction

With an extra 200 lb in the front and gobs of torque traction will be a problem. Get the rearend control arms, gears, springs, shock, tires and so on upgraded before you line up with dad. Spinning for 200 ft looks cool but looses a race awefull quick.
good luck
