QUOTE (tim si)
mine is -8 an so i just used a couplind and hooked on to the factory pick up.the pickup is metric size but i think i got a good enough seal.i dont know how youd do it with 10 an.what if you just ran a line down there and ran an inline filter before the pump?


you would think they would just make a filter/screen in AN size to hook up to the hose fitting.  I though about doing that too.

That's what I've seen done on other fuel pump installs like that... run a big -an line down into the tank long enough to go to the bottom, then just run an inline filter plumbed into the inlet of the fuel pump...

   I just slotted the quest stands in an ''L'' shape to sit the engine down then slide back.with these mounts i had no trouble with the front sump oil pan clearing everything.theres a good inch and half between the oil pan and engine cradle.you will have to use fords small starter instead of the big one.steering linkage is no problem.I just hope the metal holds up at the mount.i put a huge washer on the back

you could do alot better in terms of intake, but over all, it looks like you should make some good power with that engine

youre right about the intake but it shouldnt be a problem under boost.besides its the only intake i can use and clear the hood.if it wasnt for that id probably went with holley systemax.dyno test show only slightly lower #s with bbk.I would advise most people to stay away from the ssi intake though.ive had all kinds of issues with it.bbk upper intake hits the bbk fuel rails,it has a built in egr but you have to use an egr plate to get the throttle body to clear the valve covers,bbk fpr hits the intake,you cant thread a fuel pressure gauge into the fpr because ti wont clear the intake,it has to go into the end of the fuel rail,every bbk throttle body ive ever heard whistles like a train,and the distributor hits the fuel rails.had to grind on the rail to get it in.its taken alot of work to get it all worked out,but i think itll be ok now.Ive been having trouble with the hydraulic clutch.i went with a wildwood pull type slave cyl and wildwood master cyl but i dont have enough throw on the pedal the get it in gear.still have plenty of throw on the master and slave.any ideas?im stuck

yeah, that pretty much covers it, although im surprised that it fits better than a systemax, it looks bigger,  have you thought about the edelbrock performer RPM II, im almost positive those are shorter

the Systemax is alot bigger.its mostly a problem where it wraps across the drivers side valve cover.you have to run a 1'' spacer to clear the valve covers if youre runniing adj.rockers which have to be run on the twisted wedge head.the BBK design doesnt come near the valve covers except the throttle body.I finally got to drive it today but im still having trouble with my clutch setup and a couple timing issues.probably get that fixed this weekend

Well its been awhile since i updated but i took time to break the engine in and work out a few bugs.everything seems ok and me and a couple buddys have started on the headers.its alot tougher than i thought to get everything in there but i believe its going to work out pretty good.we just got everything spotted together right now and itll have to be tig welded together and its off to get jet-coated.

the down pipe is going to be real tight and also the air inlet is a pain to get on but i may try to cut the egr plate down a little.

Looking good! I can't wait to get back to work on mine. I got a few parts to install. Hopefully I'll be ready for boost by summer.

thanks,its gonna be a long process and im slowing down a little but i think its worth it.i really enjoyed driving it while i was breaking in the engine.i wanted to take it to the track first but never got a chance.kinda a before and after thing.it doesnt hook though so it wouldnt do much good.gotta get more rubber under the rear.

Are you not connecting the exhaust before the turbo?

Ah...IC..........couldn't tell from the first pic. I've seen some single turbo v8 applications where only one side spooled the turbo...I don't know how well it worked...Can't wait till you get done.
