    Default 98Gt vert gets boosted.

    This will be my 5th mustang week and really proud of how far the car has come since its first time down with basically just a CAI and some wheels. Had the guys at PCM build a custom short block with Teksid block, cobra crank,eagle h-beams, Probe Forged Pistons, Melling Hi-op oil pump, and all arp hardware. Put on my Ported pi heads with vt st.2 cams, edelbrock vic jr. intake and 6061.com elbow. Car has full fuel system with twin ford GT pumps.

    While the motor was out figured it was a good time to help bring the engine bay back to luster as well.
    Tapped off and scrubbed everything down


    Then started getting to work

    And of course since i didnt have any exhaust hooked up i took the liberty and advantage to polish back up my SS pipes for my IRS exhaust too i did 2yrs back, still looking pretty good i think.






    And loving my new wheels as well, now just waiting on some warmer weather and few months to finally show it off !





    Any questions,comments,ect. appreciated and looking forward to another great Mustang week.

    About 8hrs in total over a 3day period. The end result is like with painting a car its all about the preperations and getting the first couple of stages started out good. Used a 220g flapper wheel,400g,600g,800g,1000g,1500g,2000g all wet sanded.
