engine block color, valve covers and others questions
I have the another engine block in the garage out of a 1997 f-150, I thought I should paint while its still completely disassembled. I was thinking of trying to get the same color as the rest of the car, or maybe a brighter red. My dads old fashioned and said it would make the engine look like a chevy engine(I don't care i like american cars), so he said i should paint it blue cause its a ford color. I want the engine to look good.
I also want some good looking valve covers, they have custome ones at tom moranas but there $500,they can put what ever words i want on it though ( i was thinking 256 H.O. in red letters), but whats a good price for valve covers and what other sites can i buy them from?
I also need new heads, I was told i could them locally for a $100 each, the engine I got didn't come with the oil pan or the intake, do the windstar intake kits come with the lower and upper intake? and can i use the 1995 3.8 oil pan on the 1997 4.2?
