And we made progress! Taken all the waves out of the body as well as fixing the damage it had. The front was messed up. It had so many rock chips!! Also fixed the rear bumper damage but no pics of that. :3
Just wondering, but who is the paint artist here working on your car? If it is yourself, how did you learn? Everything looks great so far and good luck! I'm following you till the end of this thread!

Thanks for asking! I'm actually learning as we go. My father has been in the paint and body game for a very long time. He is very skilled in almost every aspect of the job. So he's showing me how to do things and we're both working on it. We both have full time jobs and I work and live over an hour away so it's slow work but it won't take much more! We just have to go over again in 600 grit then 800 grit. which I'll be working on over the next 18hours straight. Haha.

I also took my tires off and stripped the plasti-dip off of them and cleaned the inside really well. Gonna use actual paint on them I think, since we're going to have everything out and used.

That is awesome man! My dad used to paint but now he just says to pay someone which I don't want to do. If I want it painted then I'm going to do it is my attitude. My mom's boyfriend just purchased supplies to paint and is painting his Acura tl so were learning from that. Hopefully I get a nice gt (selling my v6 ATM) and when it blows I can build like you are.

Can't wait to see any and all the pics on the way man!

Re: Aurora's heart died.

Cole, I saw an ad from MPS a few days back for a Terminator engine and drivetrain.
I don't remember the price, but it would make an awesome swap for your car.

It's a pretty rewarding experience so far and I have spent maybe $30 so far and we have done over $1500 in labor to the car, my dad estimates. And that's just the bodywork, prep, and sand. I'm not sure how much labor we did in pulling the engine and tranny and breaking that down to the block. Haha.

I just finished taking off most of the troublesome weatherstripping as well as using a skotchbrite pad to get under the rest! And sanded the door jams as well as the area the headlights sit in. It's looking very good so far.

We did find out that the car was previously wrecked in the driver quarter-panel as well as the driver door because they were both dark blue factory coat when we sanded down some of the edges.. It's amazing the things you find out from experience that the Carfax doesn't list. Haha. Oh; and the car had been painted(poorly) three times already. This is so sad. :/ my baby has a lot of scars.

Already got the roof to a final 400 grit sand and ready to start the rest of the process.

Gonna look over the rest of the car to find rogue clearcoat and orange peel then continue! Hoping to have the 800 grit final sanding done in the next 20 hours. My hands are already getting sore though. Hah

Anywho! This is what I've done in the last hour! Check out the tight weather stripping on the roof! I got it completely clean and smooth underneath. I'm rather pleased with my progress. Haha.

I don't have $6k to drop at the moment. :/ only reason this build will work is because I'm buying piece by piece as I'm prepping the car for paint. If you find out the price be sure to let me know, though! I might take out a loan if it's right..

The one I was talking about is gone already.


They have this one with only 13,648 miles on it though.
You have to call for pricing - 2003 Cobra

Nope, I hope it works out for you. Then you'd have a base to make some serious HP if you wanted it.

Stripped the plasti-dip! Think I should keep the rims this way?

Ignore the 4X4 stance. :/ it's just the engine being out that lifted it 3-4". Haha

I wonder if MRP could do a finance thing so I could make payments.. I could deal with payments of a few hundred a month. :3

****! My tranny just dropped off it's stand and fell half a foot and this piece is off. What is this and does this broken piece have anything to do with it? (we have a bunch of random broken stuff around)

Just to clear one thing up, the teskid block can hold up to 1200 hp before any kind of reinforcement is needed. Cobra's have a forged crank different intake and some say the intake cams or exhaust cams are different. The swap itself is a breeze. Use your motor mouts and oil pan. Get a pick up tube for a cobra cause the mark 8 and cobra is bigger. Everything else is plug and play. Oh and use a 96+ cobra or 97-98 mark 8 intake. Your gt ecu will run the engine use your injectors also. The tps plug and iac plug will have to be extended to reach the locations on the mark 8. Make sure you get a set of cobra exhaust manifolds or headers. The mark 8 exhaust manifolds will not work. And if anybody tells you the rear mount throttle body intake will work is lying. No matter what you do it will not clear the firewall. Then for the fuel lines you can use fuel injector hose with clamps but make sure you double up on them.

But the your back to using the same ol' cast block. For 7K I could build you a mark motor stroked. top it with 2v cams, plenum, and an on3 turbo kit.

You should read a few posts up. Also the fuel rail is not that difficult and you don't have to cobble so much.

7-8k isn't bad for a complete motor at all. You have to know where to source the parts

I'll do a section for 2v heads on aluminum block as well.

---------- Post added at 03:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:07 PM ----------

hey I found this video of a mark for you guys

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/0nl_R5GsqbE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Trying to figure how to put videos on here

Do it like this. TH -
Copy and paste the video title, then copy the link in the address bar of the video webpage, click on the link icon at the top of the reply box (Globe with a chain), then paste the webpage link in the box that pops up.

I bow to your superior knowledge.
I'll admit I know very little about the mod motors.


I suggested the 03-04 Cobra engine because I have seen the stock Cobra engine pushed up to and maybe over 1000 HP with little more than blower, injector, fuel system and tune changes. I'll leave the engine specs and choosing up to you guys, because like I said I know very little about them.


IF, it were my car, I would go with what I know and stuff a bored and stroked 351W with twin turbos under the hood and call it good.


See Nelson Racing Engines for some hideously expensive but insane HP mirrored twin turbo engines. Note: Be prepared to mop up the drool.

Ok, not a fan of the cars themselves but very impressive!

Been working on it off and on all night and I think the hood and both fenders are ready for paint now that I finished the third stage of sanding on them! Gonna have my dad give it a look in the morning to check the quality of my work. I'm relatively nervous. And a big shout-out to Monster Energy! This stuff is a godsend as well as a curse. Haha

Mod motors respond just as well to the old rules of hot rodding as the old engines did. Only difference is we can hook a scanner to our cars and it tells us what's going on.

And just forthe record. 351W is a damn good old school engine to build

Been looking at long blocks. Think I should just get a built forged long block with cams already in it new and put all my stuff on it? I'm finding them for like $4k

Dad finishing the front bumper! I finished the rest of the car and we're pretty much set to shoot the black base coat to check for further imperfections in the body like waves as such.

And just forthe record. 351W is a damn good old school engine to build
Yeah, I know they can, I just don't know all of the intricate details as to which block is best, which heads are best, which rotating assemblies are best, etc., etc..


Yes, the newer cars/engines do have much better computer/scanner capabilities.
I see no reason that those capabilities could not be extended to any older vehicle.
After all its just a computer and the wiring that makes the difference.


P.S. I will be using the AFM PMS piggyback tuner on my 86 GT. Using their software I can hook up a laptop and have a "dashboard" display of everything that's going on with my old school engine and have instant tuning capabilities right there at my fingertips.
