First Time Fox Body 302

Hi all, I’m new to the forum and new to community. I have never on a build as ambitious as I plan to do my newly acquired 1985 LX.

The back story (Cole’s I was trying to sell my F150 and wasn’t getting many due to the high mileage, so I opened it up to offers as well. That’s I was presented with the offer of 85 mustang with a semi 302 that someone was starting to but then ran out of time/money. I figured the of my truck and the car were similar so I the trade (had nothing to due the fact that I loved car in high school. right).

Work done that I of:

— Mac headers and exhaust

Holly 600 carb

— MSD wires and ignition (. with one wire)

— KN air filter on a (a hold was cut in the hood for the filter to out about halfway above the into the scoop)

— rad. c/w a crappy electrical fan with no shroud

— battery relocated to the

— Newer alternator

Aluminum head covers

some misc chrome/billet/alum and covers

So now where to begin.

1 — Get Safetied (summer)

Not how it works in all places, but in Manitoba we to have a government safety in to get insurance to be able to drive on the and as I plan to cruise around in thing I need to address first.

I will need to do minor things for the safety, new heater core and lines, reverse lights, some and mount some of the loose under the hood.

Phase 2 — Planning

Seeing as my summer is busy with work and my on again off boat rebuild, getting the car will prob take me up the fall. At that point I can start taking a look at I’d like to do, right now to some guys who know a of a lot more then I do about the we came to this conclusion:

Top end kit: have looked at a of Edelbrock kits that pushing over 350hp+

— Camshaft: dump the old one and with a large one

— Transmission: dump the C4 (or C6. still at this point) and put in a T5 (more fun to

— Gears: Change out the to be 2.73 gears and replace 3.73 gears with unit

— Steering: add steering

— Pistons: Not what to do at this point, but like something that can a higher compression

I’m hoping with priced parts that I can get out of the motor by doing this and it more fun to drive.

Phase 3 Build (winter/spring/rest of my life)

Buy parts, pull the engine and a few cases. alright many of beer.

Again I am new to this and will most likely a few hundred times. If you guys any idea’s, comments or suggestions I am all

(pictures are from last when it was dropped off, to get some better ones I clean her up)
