Been liasing with Boofhead for a while and I have decided to rebuild my 221 6cyl and 2v head for my sons XP. Everybody else seems to be able to do it so I want to join the team. This will teach me plenty along the way and maybe give me the skills to build V8 stroker down the track. Will need plenty of help guys.

First problem is my garage which is a single and houses the XP. will have to just make do. Also the block does not fit on the engine stand properly. I can attach it with 3 bolts but no way with 4. Any ideas?



Also here is the car. Only cost a few grand a couple of years ago but is in fairly good nick. Have a new bonnet for it also.

Holy shit, that looks more like a laundry than a garage! You need a new house mate.

Good job having a crack at the donk. I think you will enjoy yourself.

Here are some pictures of the engine stripped down which myself and my son did. He is only 12 and will be buiding this with me which is very very cool.

Try this mate and lay off the gloves, i had to use something and those gloves are awesome as only the first two fingers are cut open and the rest are full gloves. Helps when you need to use the ipad but work at the same time.

Where is the mustang going to be kept ?


Nice work cage, project with the son is always a good one.. (if only mine could keep interest for longer than 5 mins)
