    Are you Cali? Hope all the fleshy "possessions" survived without injury.

    Hope you’re doing good! Just read this entire thread and man you’ve come a long way! I have an 88 GT that I would love to do this exact conversion to. any pointers? What other block should I consider? I have the H.O. heads. I want to drop a t2.5 or t3 in it as well.

    I still have my Diablo but recent events have put the project on hold for a bit.... I have turned my attention now to a 1972 Ford F350 dually.... it is needed so I have to do this... my project will continue but need to get everything again... Rebello will get me a new MS system... my cam is still in San Diego at Schneider Race Cams... my notes are gone but my pics on my old phone is helping alot... I have started looking for my replacement HO head... I have all the other small stuff like throttle body, header, top end... just looking around for another SPI lower end that suits me... the truck is more important now but will return with a better package.... same MS system... 20190601_202941.jpg

    I am doing wiring repair now... found around 8-10 melted circuits in the dash so now I am running wire through the cab to repair the circuits.... had no power in the cab when I first hooked up the battery 5 days ago.... now I have power to the major parts so now is the time to repair all the damage now while everything is apart... now this pic is my last big piece of the project... this differential with Springs and perches... it was a 1999 f350 4x4 dually quad cab... the tag says it's a 3.73 ... my stock one is a 4.10... plus the 99 has rear disc brakes... I did this with my scort but with a GT rear ....
