That motor is not going to know wth happened haha. Actually the "vic" motors are almost always the cheapest and best taken care of motors.

Woo FedEx guy again!











Everything looks good, good couplers, nice clamps, big intercooler, BOV is nice, all hardware/lines/everything included and all packed very well.

I also like how there really is a minimal amount of extra piping this will add from the headunit to the throttle body. Apparently this intercooler drops the boost by 2-3 so I'll have to pulley the Novi accordingly. Not like the Novi isn't going to be able to move enough air or anything...

Flywheel came in



Also took out the Steeda hood lift kit that was in there and installed a SVE unit. I wanted to at least keep the Steeda plates but the geometry was off with the struts and unfortunatly Steeda no longer makes these for some reason. I'll hold onto it in a box somewhere...

Car also has BBK tuned length headers on it. Now that the hood stays open by itself I really got up under and looked and sure enough, flaking on the header primaries. So that is something else that will need taken care of... I guess DIY ceramic or I'll just get them blasted/ceramic coated.

You could also use exhaust wrap on the headers...

No never... And these headers have the flat spots in them for the steering shaft too. Oh well, I'm sure they flow better than the stock manifolds and being equal length tuned will actually help with scavenging... except its supercharged lol.

Time for a vinyl top on the Bullitt?

I know I could wrap the headers but I want to stop the corrosion and make them last a long time and honestly the best way to do it is to do a full blast and inside/outside powdercoat. I had a set of longtubes done for $300... I can't imagine the shorties would be close to that.

I could also always DIY bake them but I don't have some random spare oven and I'm not about to do that **** in my own house... Probably will just get them blasted/coated professionally.

Wooo! Bolted the arm to the block and had the guy lower it down on the lift and just slid the stand in and boom. Easy. Even has all 8 original low mileage COPs and an O2 sensor.

Needs a cleaning BAD tho lol.

I hope so. I am about ready to move some more boxes and back this thing in and shut down the current motor forever. Bumper off, hood off, start to remove stuff. As soon as I get the roof paint fixed, that is what is happening.


I'm not going to expect to be king of the street at 400ish rwhp or anything... not even close. But leaving it looking like a mildly modded regular GT its going to surprise the **** out of a LOT of ppl. Especially since it has suspension, is geared and will have a good set of tires on it.


Also proof that all your really have to do to a New Edge to make it look great is to lower it and a set of rims. The 99-04 Mustangs really are some of the most gorgeous cars ever made. Ford completely nailed it.

As light as it is, with that setup, it's gonna be a wicked sleeper that will be fun as heck to drive. It's in the right hands.

Lol this would get the eddy intake if anything. When I eventually do a built motor that's what is going on it. Or if the pi intake on this new motor starts to leak at the common trouble points. I would not on a NA car but with the Novi hell yes.

Talked to this guy this morning on FB. Seemed like he knew what he was talking about and real good prices. Bonus for me that this car came with tuned length shorties. Bad that they are BBKs which start rusting if you look at them the wrong way.

https://www.facebook.com/powdersmiths


And just so everyone knows, this is what BBK headers do even when exposed to minimal weather. This car has 34k miles on it and was only not garaged for 1 or 2 years at most and for a lot of that time it just sat in a driveway.





MACs do this too, so do Flowtechs, so do all the cheap non-stainless budget headers. I would never buy these myself but they were on the car and its a lot cheaper to get them fixed/sealed right than buy a new set and they are equal lengths so they will help out when the car is not in boost vs the stock manifolds or any other header that does not have equal length primaries.

VRS catted X pipe with wideband bung. Military discount=$335 shipped to my door. It is aluminized, but this car will not see much weather and zero road salt. It will hold up fine. Quality is great and the cats are Magnaflow which was a nice surprise.

It has an option to connect a wide band sensor.

Yep driver side, you can see right on the second pic that there are 2 bungs on the left primary pipe.


Few more things I need to buy... but not really anything that will prevent me from yanking the motor, swapping all the accessories and drop it back in.


I just want it to be able to move under its own power while I work on the roof paint so I can back it out into the driveway and work on it and then pull it back into the garage for the night. Like I said, after the paint is done and cleared and I'm happy with it I'm going to let it sit for 2 weeks before the panels go back on and that's probably when it'll be backed in and getting the motor pulled.

Roof panels off today. Going to kill that surface rust and then wet sand and red putty primer tomorrow and sand that till it's smooth. Should not be too long to get it how I want it hopefully.

Now I'm afraid to remove the sail panels lol. I mean you have pretty much the same miles I had on mine when I bought it in 2012.

Car still staying grey or do you have another color in mind? I think I know the answer just wanting to clarify. Also I'm curious, besides the badges did Steeda modify the exterior body any?

I am somewhat color blind. But I'm pretty sure that's silver.
