    Whats up everyone. Anyone else in here build a 5.4 dohc for the sn95 chassis? Working in my swap currently, shooting for 400rwhp N/A, through a tr3650

    I have a buttload of pictures but figured i would get a thread started first before posting 496a54172246a16df188602b6ebdc8ed.jpg

    Nice. What are you using for an intake manifold?

    Awesome! Excuse my ignorance, but is that a Cammer intake?

    Its a BOSS 290 intake, had to get it imported from Australia. Its about as close to a 2000 Cobra R intake that you can get. (The 75mm round t/b opening us getting hacked off, for a dual blade t/b to go on)

    I'll update this thread here in a bit with a lot of pictures

    The car was in pretty bad condition when i got it. Took quite a while to fix all of this mess.

    (Yes car used to be LS swapped....i UN-swaped it, back to a ford motor) eceb93be4b7e424bc7f7e01b587c2ab7.jpg d976772be0bacb314d39264968154f47.jpg 826eceb2e34be77b6f64344cbb89421b.jpg 64b77841ea664c355790617231cee961.jpg 2d0bea0d4ddd83317ae8962281122d63.jpg 7da9e172dd866550afffd1a318711237.jpg 9d5be6bce650642ddce049b74055bfa3.jpg 00f529a1204699cd97f873f10245a838.jpg 8ea78809ae06aa369558bb723427e2ac.jpg c30b0d01f1816900f62a54bc62d1e0a2.jpg 3e36b3734f362c68bacf50067e5739ef.jpg 9b538db845d6058b65ecdc611cecdfbc.jpg b4873c834d9d369302fd608fd0447e12.jpg 9781e6e0e8189f4b90f6e8de9d31071e.jpg

    Next up, the trunk. Went ahead and repaired that pocket of rust, re-upholstered the trunk carpet as well as added a upholstered cover for the trunk lid. Next up, installed a LED strip for much better visability at night 94ed15901c188044f6e05e764836186d.jpg 4940df48a4548667ead000d66a4b1543.jpg f3f7e26982566e69dd23d6e72cb1dcb4.jpg 5eed4e6d577c75dbb7c09f98d69b7066.jpg f6c0d36f3b864acb7f45c1dd6df0756e.jpg

    Since i was going with the gigantic 5.4 DOHC, I decided i wanted as much free room as i possibly could get so i opted to install a AJE tubular k member as well as 1/2" k member spacers. While i was there, i picked up a set of front cobra/mach/bullitt brakes. I do still need to delete the ABS block and re route the lines. d9acd4bfdf344a73ccf03fded5b65878.jpg 056dc96db0aeff86493c852931dba060.jpg 6eea6d9474c7c2d7d62ea9ee0bd68d1a.jpg d080d9de5f9c0f72f9a2b879c7b3dd6d.jpg 8dae4f041142529b74390c46d7519c67.jpg 7dbd926dda74972d63a58d515dfe4311.jpg fb2e0dc8890ff82a22fbdbae59c66c3d.jpg 79875f3b93449a32dbade19cb6e11860.jpg

    I had originally picked up a suoer low mileage 4.6 2v....the plan was to just turn this car into a nice daily driver, shortly after i picked up a damaged 01' bullitt motor to get the intake setup off of......after having to deal with repairing soooo many issues with the car, i was irritated with it and chose to turn it into a much more powerful toy. Sold both 2v's and started the hunt for a 5.4.....hit up my local junk yard and spent 8hrs pulling the motor by myself only to get it home to find out it was trashed, luckily the block is salvageable, and the crank is a good forged piece.

    The heads were garbage, cams, basically everything else was junk.

    Lesson learned, junkyards are crooks

    Thanks a lot Austin Wrench a Part.

    Did u finish your build? Im in the middle of the same one sort of. (Forced ind.) Today i attempted pacesetter long tubes and failed miserably....drivers side fit....but not the pass. side. Figured I'd persuade it in with a ....RIP header. My heart was set on long tubes but if the only answer is manifolds than i guess. Do you of any headers that will fit with our swap? P.s. i also ran 3/4in spacers and a tubular k member.
