Small(!) update:

I had paranoid delusions about my block and figured I had better pressure test it before bothering to surface, hone and align hone it. Turns out my fear of crack was unfounded. The deck surface is still pretty rough, but it held 30 psi on the driver side and 40 on the passenger side. So...hooray there. Next step is to order studs and cut the caps for align honing.

OK, I own a Mustang now Finally have something I can do with the block

1988 GT. PO did a new paint job, and added an LX wing since he thought it looks better.

Keeping an eye on this build. Still in disbelief on how nice that block came out.

dank yew

The paint job is only a year or two old, I lucked out there. Needs some small work to be sure. There supposedly is a voltage drain from somewhere that'll need to be addressed, had to get a new battery already (old one failed testing). Needs new headlights for sure, those leak, I can see condensation on the inside of the lens. New shocks on the hatch, yadda yadda. Normal stuff for a 24 year old car.

check the grounds on the battery.

was thinking this was a dreamer build when this thread first started, but looks like it's actually going somewhere.

No new updates, I'm afraid. I realized I needed to spend money on all the supporting stuff (rear axle, suspension, trans) before I blow it all on the motor. So for now, it sits in a bath of LPS 2, eagerly awaiting the day it gets honed and align honed. Doesn't help that I just had to "donate" a shitton of money to the IRS

I'll probably do bits and pieces here and there, but I will definitely keep you folks updated. Sorry for the huge blast with nothing to show for it yet

You didn't miss anything, I forgot to say! I've got a 4" stroke Eagle crank I picked up cheap. At the end of all this should be a 408. Probably going to be Eagle rods with some Mahle pistons. Heads are unknown at this time. It's going to be a mild N/A build, so I don't have to go too crazy up top. The EFI system, whatever I end up going with, will probably take up most of the fundage.

I'd really like to build something that will allow me to keep the stock hood. So we'll see what happens with that.
