I was going tubular more-so for long tunes and weight saving. It's only like $300.

And you're saying ported b heads are better than c heads? I'm a bit lost. I though c heads eclipsed b heads in every way?

you'll loose almost 100lbs with the aluminum block. to much weight loose will adversely affect the cars front to rear weight ratio. And also for a DD structure is most important. It's just not needed in a DD unless a must.

Sounds good. What about you saying ported B heads were the best? I thought C heads were?

Also we completely finished the car and I got to get it it's first bath. Check it out. look at the last two pics closely.. We painted that plastic bottom piece. Should've done that years ago!

Correct. I don't have one. I'll be getting one when I even get an engine put in the car so I see how it stands with the lighter engine.

Re: Aurora's heart died.

Saying my good-byes to Aurora for the next couple of months.. DEP'd into the US Coast Guard on September 11th and am set to leave for Basics on October 16th so I'll be focusing most of my time and resources on getting ready. I'm attempting to get into the AST rank which is one of the most elite Coast Guard ranks with only roughly 260 among it out of about 37000 active and reservist Coast Guardsmen.

After basics and I get things sorted out and on some kind of schedule, I'll be continuing this build. I appreciate all the help and input from everyone! I hope we can all band together when I get back to wrap this up!

Big thanks to Nomad! I'm glad we went through this together; you've been a great resource and friend.

Although I already made my dramatic exit.. I was wondering if there was any downside to going to a carb'ed engine? I've been finding a lot of fully-built turn-key 347s for around $6500 that spit out a little over 450hp all day all motor. That's the power range I want to be at and the sound is incredible.

My question, I guess, is what are the pro/cons or going carb over efi, and also what would I have to change in order to run a carb'ed setup in my '02?
Because I'm tired of looking at this.

Re: Aurora's heart died.

And mixed in with my own research I've been finding sites like this that break it down a bit.. But it's based on opinion(as is everything?):
Carb vs. EFI

...or get a 4.6 from the junk yard for cheap and add a v3 for 3k...just a thought.

And someday you may want to sell it. A 4.6 will yield better results if you ever do want to sell.

With all the personal time I've put into body work, paint job, and soon-to-be engine work... I doubt I'll ever sell this. Especially since I'd get so little for it; maybe 7K even with the badass engine I end up putting into it.

Re: Aurora's heart died.

You will be dead to me if you switch to carb. LOL better to spray fuel per cylinder then drool it in. Need more proof, look at the DFI engines. (Direct Fuel Injection).

I haven't really posted on your thread but have followed along a bit. And I just want to say good luck and congratulations. I will add some of my opinions on carb vs efi.

Pros.
Somewhat easier to setup. Drop it in and go
No ecu need for tuning.(note this can also he a con)
Cleaner engine bay.
Less wiring

Cons
Drivability
More often needs tuned
Lose ability to adapt to wheather/climate changes

There's a lot more to what I mentioned. Some people take a carb swap as the easy route, and it is pretty easy. But there is a lot more to it than that. You will need a fuel pump with regulator, a new ignition system, etc. I personally would not recommend going back in time technology wise. But with that said I do like my carb. And its pretty. Lol

---------- Post added at 04:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:12 PM ----------

I also forgot to mention. I don't know much about your guys transmissions, but if its electronic controlled then you will have issues/swaps.there to.

Re: Aurora's heart died.

I'm so bummed... My boot camp date got pushed back all the way to December 18th for no reason. I already am out of my lease as well as my jobs... What the heck am I going to do for 2 months? I'll have no money and tons of bills to pay. ****.

Camp date got pushed back even further now! February 12th! What the hell. I'm back in Baton Rouge now and got my old job back. Gonna be saving some coin real quick and gonna get the 2v rebuilt for now. But gonna go fully forged and upgrade to stage 2 cam and upgrade springs. Also gonna go ahead and swap blocks to my Teksid block but stay 2v.

Any suggestions? Any ideas on price? In guessing around $2k for the rebuild plus forged parts, then another $500 for cam and then a couple hundred for a machine shop to assemble it?

Man up and assemble that this yourself, you got the tools and help. I will say though get if reusing the 4v pump from the Mark, the find a Mach oil pickup tube. otherwise just get a new pump and tube for a Mach or Cobra. Just have the Block machined with the pistons and make sure that both heads and block are trued and smooth. I can give you a link to a book that can help you or I can even ship you all the info from my Ford Service Manual so you get the correct info.

Tools:
in-lbs torque wrench
ft-lbs torque wrench
Grey RTV sealant
feeler gage
piston ring pliers
tapered piston ring compressor
2v valve spring compressor
Ford timing kit for 4.6L OHC.

Sounds good, actually. I have most all of the tools needed; just need the ring compressor. Since I'm sticking 2v for now are you sure I can't reuse oil pickup from my GT engine?

And by shop assembly I meant just setting the crank, rods, and pistons correctly. I figured since I had to get a deck hone and bore that it wouldn't cost much more to get the rotating assembly put in the block. Everything else I have done before. Except for degreeing cams.. Seems like a pain in the *** but shouldn't be too terrible since I've done so much research on it and am getting a degree wheel.

The 2v oil pump is a low volume pump. The pickup is smaller in diameter than the 4v assembly. Other than the wheel you need the degree set as well.

I actually got an oil pump and pickup with the Teksid block and b-series heads. I'll double check the size comparison in a week when I am back at my garage. But I'm pretty sure it was bigger than my GT's stock one.

Ok if I remember correctly that the block setup you have is from a Mark. Being that it is, the pick up is shorter than the Mustang (ie Mach, Cobra) pickup tube. Now it will work but you have to eye the oil at times so that you dont run low. Reason is that the Mark Pickup doesnt seat in the pan as deep as the cobra's does.

I'm back y'all! Graduated USCG boot camp and had my birthday yesterday. I have bad news though.. My orders are to Ketchikan, Alaska. I really won't be able to bring Aurora. (

So now what?
