Thanks guys ! this had been on the road since 1984, after 4 years of building, its the original paint, interior ect, the engine picture is the old 3.5 but the new 4.6 looks the same, over the years done everything in it, first trip was to Santa Pod in 1984, took it down the track a couple of times, I must admit although its been out in terrible weather, storms, salted roads, I don't drive it in the rain if I can help it, mainly cause I hate cleaning it !!!, just put a new T5 mustang gearbox on the engine, the T5 Cosworth box I put on was noisy n broke, the new 4.6 has only 10 miles on it, I put in a 1/2 race cam, I am regretting that because I am lacking the low down torque, I was going to change the timing 4 degrees on the sprocket but am worried the pistons might hit, any how I don't fancy tearing down the whole engine just to see !
