Wideband is ordered but i forgot to tell the shop making my x pipe to add a bung for it argh... emailing them. Also got ahold of my local powdercoater and it will be $300 to restore the Konig rims.

Nickel and dime nickel and dime lol

Did those Steeda Mustangs come with the Paxton's or is the Novi an upgrade the previous owner did?

Pretty sure it was an option you could get from Steeda.

Side question when did Steeda stop making them?

They can really make some good power. I missed it on that build sheet lol. I had assumed it was added by the original owner. Pretty damn sweet.

Novi is original. The 2000 is almost identical to the T trim Vortech. Lots of room to grow.

$8k budget is going fast lol... good news is I have bought almost everything I can think of. After I get the motor I'll have $700 left for rando parts... I'll probably use that all up and have to tap into my regular paycheck for a few more things but it'll be worth it.


This car is so low mileage in in such good shape and its a rare numbered car I dont' see myself selling it... I know I'm the "just get a Coyote" nutswinger on here a lot but this car came with a 20 psi capable blower on it already. I paid as much for this whole car as a new Novi2000/T Trim would cost by itself.

^ it's a numbered car and a piece of steeda muscle history. You're showing it the love it deserves. I think any of us would hope to keep it forever.

Limited production cars aka numbered cars = $$$$
Which in the long run it will be worth more being a rare car.

That's still a REALLY great budget for what will be a low mileage, 400 HP rare monster when youre done. You could probably almost double your 8k when It's done to the right buyer or maybe even more?!! You took a risk and it appears that it will pay off tremendously!

Have you thought about building the motor with cobra compression? 750 can get your rods and Pistons from mmr 750hp capable, that's what I'll be doing when it's time for boost

Thats later. I just want to get it going. I would not ever want 8.5:1 compression with a centri blower either.

Plan over the winter is to find a 3V block, buy Boss rods and Probe pistons. Will have to find another oem forged crank somewhere... still mad i sold my teksid and oem forged crank back in November.

Also not a huge fan of mmr.

No car nowadays should be under 10.5:1 even with boost. Hell do E85 and you can go 12.0:1.

Agreed, I wish we had E85 around here...

And honestly I might scrap finding motor parts over the winter and instead try to find someone around here to do a straight swap with me for a IRS and then install a FTBR kit.

I've got a feeling that there's going to be an 01 cobra front bumper is on that list. Doing an IRS swap? Nice.

Where did you get the wide band?
I've been thinking about getting one for my truck.

I see that it comes with the bung. There is a easy welding project for you Scotty!

That's all next winter stuff. The GT bumper on there now has no plate holes and not even a nick in the paint.

Will be doing an IRS swap eventually as well as the 99/01 Cobra front probably but that's down the road like I said. I just want to get it on the road and enjoy it for a summer and go from there.

A young dude at our cars and coffee a few weeks back brought his 99 Cobra. He still had the license plate mount on his front bumper. Do these things leave holes? They look like they do, but idk. I cringed when I saw it lol.

He arrived dirty lol, filthy in fact. But it's really in pretty good shape for 170k miles. He just got it so he has some stuff to do. Ford was just plain being mean selling these cars with this ride height.

That'll leave 2 holes in the bumper. There are plenty of online tutorials on how to fill/smooth holes in urethane bumpers though. In that shape in that pic that is a $600 bumper tho, can only get them off of 99/01 cars.


Really excited to see the front mount intercooler setup I have coming in this week too. All piping, oil cooler, blowoff, intercooler and all brackets for $500.


Been milking this military discount for all its worth lol. I've had to have saved close to $300 by now with it...

They come in white face too which I got. And no welding for Scotty, called the shop fabbing my X pipe and they're adding one in while they are at it.

Lol yeah, and then I have to sit on my *** till my doc clears me to start lifting stuff. I will be pulling the roof panels off the car this week tho. Paintscratch kit isn't getting here till next week but I can prep at least.

CX Racing intercooler gets here Wednesday tho, will have that to look forward to.

Going tomorrow after the kid gets off to school. They say they still have it.

Hood strut replacement kit came in today and I think I found an unmarried SCT3 with 5 unlocks on it on the corral for $200 shipped... That and the engine are really the last big things I need. The rest is nickel/dime and I'm hoping there won't be too much of that.

Trying to get the snow meth kit out of the car so I can put it up for sale and make some $$$ back. Same with the flowtech X pipe if someone wants the OR pipe and the 96-98 Cobra OEM bumper I have AND the mint 99/00 charcoal console.

Yep, got a good used SCT X3 with 5 unlocks and fully unmarried with all the cables/everything for $210 shipped. Motor tomorrow... then probably should go get the title transferred finally lol. Have not wanted to wait at the DMV with my knee but its feeling good enough to do it now...

Paid for the motor today. $525 plus tax plus $25 delivery=$575ish dropped off in my garage. Can't beat that. Motor will be delivered late tomorrow or early Friday.

2005 2V out of a Grand Marquis



Just needs a cleaning. No evidence of leaks anywhere.

Mileage easy to verify with old person style mechanical odometer.



Car was not in any sort of wreck at all. Scrapped because old person who had it died or went into assisted living and the family didn't want to deal with it. These cars are worth pretty much nothing anyway.



Pretty much done buying parts at this point. I'm sure there will be a few things here and there, few cosmetics...

So excited to finally start working on this too, I really need to get the panels off it to start working on the roof or I'm going to go crazy with the car just sitting there like this...
