Fox Body Fairmont w/ Mustang 3V Engine Swap -- Ford Racing M-6017-463V
Check out the Fox Body Mustang Ford Racing 3V Controls Pack Here: http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/M6017463V/Ford-Racing-46L-3V-Controls-Pack
We took the Fox Body Fairmont out for a little test drive. This thing sounds wicked and launches like crazy. The Exhaust setup includes a set of MAC long tube headers, a modified BBK x-pipe, and Jones mufflers coupled with a set of Pipes flow tubes. The 4.6L Mustang 3V engine is being run by the Ford Racing Controls Pack (M-6017-463V).

Pass Time Event at the LRS 10th Anniversary
In the planning stages of our 10th Anniversary our Sales Manager Mike
Linley suggested that since our employees were not really getting a chance
to run their cars down the track, maybe we could organize a "Pass-Time"
style game show for a few lucky people from the car show. We thought about
it, and all decided it was a great idea. If you have never watched the
popular Pass-Time TV show on Speed channel, the basics are that you have
contestants that try and guess the elapsed time of one car they have never
seen go down the track before. The challenge is that they can only ask the
driver one question to help them narrow a guess for the ET and whichever of
the contestants is closest to the ET wins money. Cars can range from daily
drivers or they can change up drivers to make it more interesting and don't
forget the combo round where you have to guess the total ET of two cars
going down the 1320 at the same time. Usually they wrap up the show with a
really fast car to throw everyone off.

Fox Body Mustang Project Blue Collar: Back From Paint!
Watch This Complete Fox Body Mustang Restoration Project Here:
a href = "/Ford--Mustang-Drag-Racing.html">Mustang-Restoration
Project Blue Collar, our Fox Body Mustang Build, is back from paint! We
had a lot to accomplish once the Stang came back from the paint shop. We
started by installing new 5.0Resto exterior trim parts, new quarter
windows, headlights and replaced those ugly clear tail lights!
Once that was done we installed a set of SVE Drag Wheels on Project Blue
Collar. I would expect to see some drag times in the future. To finish off
the performance mods we installed a SVE 70mm throttle body and Pypes Pype
Bomb Catback Exhaust.
The last part of this project was re-installing the interior components and
replacing all of the broken and worn out pieces (there were a lot!). We
installed the TMI 2003 Cobra Seat Upholstery kit, black suede headliner,
sunvisors and door panels. We finished off the interior with new ACC
carpets and floor mats.

In this update, Jmac shows you everything you need to do before you can
install the Coyote motor into your SN-95 or Fox Body Mustang. He covers topics such as
tubular k members. If you have a 96-04 Mustang with a 4.6L engine already in
your Mustang then you can
use your stock k member. Jmac shows you what clearance issues you will have
if you use a stock k member with long tube headers.
In this Mustang Coyote
Swap, we used a set of BBK Coyote swap long tube headers. They will be
later mated up to a BBK Coyote Swap off-road x pipe. We also address motor
mounts need for a engine swap like this. We used a set of factory 96-04
4.6L motor mounts. The next major component needed to do a Coyote Swap in a
Fox or SN95 Mustang is an
oil pan. We turned to Moroso and used their Coyote Swap oil pan. It did
have to have minor modification to clear the long tube headers.
Lastly we used a Quick Time bell-housing to install our Tremec 3550
transmission to the Coyote engine. Jmac goes over some of the minor
modifications needed to make a Tremec transmission work in your Coyote

1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would
make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I
also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have
a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's
for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more
interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after
all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some
of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need
to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though,
easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway,
enjoy the video.
