    Yeah so here is a status update on two tons o' love. I am halfway through amassing parts to do a carbed LS swap in the car. It will be a 5.3 LM7 with 4th gen 862 heads, TSP low lift 220/228/112 cam. Victor Jr. intake, and Holley 750 double pumper. I just need to buy 4-5 more items like the oil pan (Holley hot rod pan), flexplate, fuel pump, motor mounts and some exhaust manifolds. Trying to do swap in March. While at my buddy's shop I might have him rebuild the front suspension. After that I need to focus on interior and fixing a few paint issues.

  2. Good to see this back to the top. Have you been having any fun and driving it while you collect parts?
  3. Honestly I barely drove the Mercury last year, was just tired of the mechanical issues.

    But I have almost all the motor swap parts in hand, so she will go under the knife soon. 2017 I will finish the car.

  4. Guys I traded my merc to a guy out by Rockford IL last summer, I think he's finishing. I'm building a 1100 HP '67 back half '67 Camaro now.

    That explains why I couldn't find you by the car at the Sycamore show last July.
