Default Its official........

Ok guys I have been kinda looking round for a car to go down the strip with. Now I am getting one. It is a 1993 Mustang GT. I will be dropping in a BBF 460. I got some of the parts already saved so I can get them when I have the money. I am kinda confused and lost on what parts to go with for................

What valves to put in it....it will have a solid rooler cam in it.
what oilpan
I was thinking putting on a Hogans intake but not sure.
What brand radiator to go with also.

I have been talking to a couple of the guys on here already bout it and so I am just trying to get soem more input on everything.

Thanks guys for the help.

Valves: Ferrea

Intake: Jon Kaase - http://www.jonkaaseracingengines.com...s/intakes.html

Oil Pan: Whatever will fit that has a pass side kickout and full length windage tray.

Headers: ???

Radiator: ??? I run a Griffin, but I hear the radiator I bought in 92 is no longer the same quality unit they now make. Supposedly they are now quite a bit 'cheaper' in construction.

are you installing a new K-member when you put the 460 in? I have Kooks headers on my 91 with a crate 46o, expensive but they fit great. If you get a new K-member its a lot easier to find a pan. I have a Be Cool radiator with a pusher and a puller fan setup. heat is your biggest enemy on the Fox bodies with big blocks...

I know I will prolly have to do some adjusting to the crossmember and all that due ot the ract it had a 351 in it. I cant tell you for sure if I will be putting in a new one without looking at it and just setting the motor in it to see everything that will need to be done to it.

I cant tell from the pics but does it still have the stock crossmember? My setup is a QA1, one tube under the motor and lots of room.
