    I have been doing a lot of work the my Mustang the last few weeks. Installed a thermal switch for the fan and have the clutch adjusted and the cable routed the correct way now. The car is a beast, very hard to control on the roads around my house mostly gravel. I did drive her a little bit on pavement and she still wants to fry the tires, I guess that is not a bad thing. The only thing I wasn't ready for is that I am to big for the car. With the seat all the way back, my legs are bent, my thighs touch the steering wheel and my head touches the headliner. Just another thing to deal with.

    Everything is installed in mustang and running well. After running engine through a heat cycle, I had to take the headers off and retorque the heads (lots of fun). Now that is done I have been dealing with the high heat of the engine. I am running a high volume water pump, 160 high flow stat, and an aluminum radiator. Today I went to the junk yard and picked up an electric fan out of a Volvo, it is a two speed fan. The engine runs great now and runs between 160-170. I need to get a thermal switch and wire it up right now I just run the fan direct, still more work to do.

    Engine finally at home and installed into Mustang. Today I will try and get the fuel, electrical and exhaust completed and maybe even adjust the clutch, it all depends on how many trips to the hardware store I need to make.

    The opening in the front and back of the scoop is a good idea, just like you said about closing off the opening when raining. I do have drains in the low spots of the air tray to let water drain. I hate to admit it but I will most likely only drive her on sunny summer days, LOL, I will diver her all the time I can. I will look into making flaps that will close the opening and open flaps in the rear and vise versa.

    Hey Bob, you've done alot of work on that Stang! I had a cold air set up almost like yours on my 70 Stang and I sure loved it! Of course when it rained I had to close the front of the scoop with foam but other then that it ruled. My scoop was open in the front and back like the old Stringray vette scoops so closing the front didn't stop the air intake. I like that 351 in there too.....all I had was a 302 that ran great until a valve broke then a piston broke and push rods bent all over and one broke block! That was a sad day and only 12K on that 302.....live and learn I say and keep a saving account just for the ride!
