    I recently got the news that the 289 in my 68 coupe is dead and i need a new engine. I am thinking of going the route of a crate engine. In my old one i had a comp cam, performer intake, gt40p heads and a few other things so i am not looking at going back to a stock crate. I am looking to...

    Hey guys, I've decided I'm going to build up a 302 block from a late model mustang. I'm most likely going to find the block on craigslist, and wanted to know how many miles on the engine should I look for. How many miles is too much? Also I just had new shorty Hedmen headers and exhaust put on...

    I have a 2003 Mach 1 that I'm planning on building to around 600 hp. I know stock it doesn't support that much horse power or torque with the engine or trans.

    Im sure most of you guys down south don't know the pain and suffering of having to put the car up for 5 months and just look at it sitting in the garage. The one benifit to the winter season is being able to plan a build and get the parts together. Come the end of April, hopefully a big better...
