I'm looking for something. Once I find it, then it will be game on.. Took a weeks vacation @ the end of april. I'll be able to tear everything down and get to the fun stuff..

Just getting rotating assembly done. Havent decided if im even going to touch the heads (valves, springs, etc) or not. Engine only had like 130k on it so I might just get them cleaned and resurfaced and swap cams. Probably be in my best interest to get them pressure tested and the deck checked before I slap em on.

MMR finally got back to me. They are waiting on header gaskets to show up so they will ship my whole order out on wednesday. Cost to ship was $99!!! But I got it fo free..

Ibd, if you are going through MMR become a member on svtperformance and go through their rep, he'll give free shipping and also gave me $25 off my first order just for being a member lol

Update..

Got my 96-98 cobra intake cams in. Gonna run em up to the machine shop when I pick up my engine to make sure they dont need cleaned or anything. Still no call from machine shop so ill be calling them tomorrow afternoon.

Also went by oreillys today to pick up some miscellaneous items..
8 borg worner coil packs (lifetime warranty compared to motorcrafts limited warranty)
8 motorcraft plugs
New water pump
New thermostat
New serpentine belt

All of this rang up to about $520 but I used my buddy's discount and only paid $360 which I thought was a steal for the coil packs alone. I have basically everything I need to build the engine except the engine itself lol

If yours turns out as great as I think it is I might try to follow in your footsteps.
