Hello, I am Jim from Fort Wayne, IN.  I am working on getting my 1970 Boss 302 back on the road.  I have the #'s matching block and don't want to hurt it.  Going to put together a 3.25" stroke Dart block with my Boss heads.  Was thinking about running E85.  FordStrokers isn't far from me, so I will probably head there for my work. 

Welcome Jim, I love the 70 Mustang, and the Boss was amazing. I dreamed of getting one some day and doing just what you are, saving the original engine/trans and installing a nice modern combo.

Show us some pics for sure. Post up that real Boss block, and I'll dig out my 400 block that too, has four bolt mains and screw in freeze plugs. Wonder, Ponder

name is Joe, from Colorado. Just turned 59, as my forum name states I was a Jarhead many, many years ago.

Working on a 63 Fairlane with my Daughter, and a 68 Torino GT.

Fairlane has a MII front suspension, and will have a Freakride four-link. We have been working on it since she was 13, off and on for 7 years. It will have a 351, and T5, and all the safety features, and comforts of a new car.

We bought the 68 GT so she could drive it to high school while we worked on the 63. Itt puked the FMX right away, then the 351 went south. Put in a rebuilt 351, and a swap meet C4. The C4 made it 5 miles and grenaded, So we went all  out on this one and put a TKO 600 in it, Global West front suspension, hydraulic clutch, Quicktime bell housing, etc.

So here were are nearly 7 years later and she is in college and her Fairlane is on hold. The GT is just now on the road.

That's me for now...

Will not give personal info on any website. I'm out of central ky area and like all engines not just fords. But do like SBFs. Not here to scam anyone or cause trouble. Enjoy learning new and different ways of doing things. I've had a mustang for bout 15plus years. And yes it is a fox body the best drag chassis to ever come out of the factory.  I've lerked  on the website seems to be a decent place to be. Thanks SBFtech

Hello and Merry Christmas to everyone, I'm another new "old" member to SBFT. My background
is automotive, former ASE Master Tech for 20+ years, left the business and currently work in the
Utility Industry. Recently purchased a 95 F250 4wd 351W. Would like to do a budget minded, emissions
compliant, EFI build (using a recalibrated factory PCM, if at all possible) with the best combination of usable torque and horsepower.  I appreciate, in advance, all of your opinions and suggestions. Looks like a great website with valuable expert information. Looking forward to meeting you all, and your input. Thank you and Happy New Year too! Otto

Welcome to SBFtech.  

Hang around, check stuff out, and get a feel for the place.

Remember that once you get over 10 posts, more sections become available to you.  Suggestions are to post some pics of your rides (Fords preferred) and tell us something about your car and your plans for it.

Enjoy.

Thats the most common.

If that doesn't really fit, there are also sections based on engine type and the drag combo areas.

Im from Texas. Born and raised. I have loved Fords since my first F100 in 1979. Right now Im in the process of tearing down a 1968 302 out of a Mustang and swaping it into a 1983 F150 Explorer pkg. Its got a rod thru the block of a 300-6. Its kinda a dad and son project. Ive always wanted to do. He is 13 and a good kid in school to his friends and I want to do this for him. Got a daughter who is a freshman in college and drives a 04 Mustang with the lil 3.9 of which im not a fan, but thats a different story. Happily married to the best woman a man could ask for 26 yrs.. Go Ford or go home.. She does drive a turbo beetle and thats ok, Im partial to VW's too. It will run
