Awesoem mate, great to see the old fords still kicking hard after almost 2 decades. Long live the old Fords and yeah they never die but get faster.
So that new intake manifold is it a redline one?

Actually, Dreders hit it right on the nose....it's a Ultraflow manifold, rare as! It's been pre-ported by the guy that used to own it, and fully smoothed out inside. A bargin at $400 I think.

Laminge: My mechanic is actually pretty damn short! Scrapes 5 foot I reckon. I tower over him!!! :D

I've been told everything is wired up, I'm going for a sus and some more photos this arvo...I've built a switch box for it all...painted gold of course! More pics to come! (I can tell you, I'm itching to drive this thing!)
