      In My Case I'm Running Rich At Moment, Need To Retune For These Injectors. But Expect Some Gain. Are You Running Stock Camshaft?

      The stock cam, same one the 4.2 F150 used.
      It does not make much power until about 1800 rpm.
      Another, a 99 Mustang I modified and sold I put a F150 4.2 manifold on it.
      I had to go to a higher stall speed converter, but it was worth it.

    Getting Closer, Cooling System In Just Need to Wire Secondary Fans To Dash And Install Starter Setup. Over Flow Tank Should Be In By Monday (I Hope) Working On Hood For Vent Mod's And See How It LQQKS. Almost On Road Again!! Vents Are From 2015 Mustang, LQQK Like Good Fit.

    I Got The Hoses On Today, Like The Extra Wide Clamps We Have Today, LQQK Good And Hold Great Too! With The 4.6L Mustang Radiator In Place Needed To Find A Way To Fill Her Up With Coolant. So I Got Out My Trusty PVC Pipe Cutting Pliers. Ever See Them Massive Ratcheting Jaw And It Cut Silicone Hose With Ease. Nice Smooth Straight Cuts. Inserted Filler Coupling With Filler And There You Have It. One Thing I Noticed Is My Overflow Isn't Going To Fit. Any Ideas (Out There) As To Which To Use? Check Out My Projects In Personal Projects and Builds.
