Interesting build putting that SHO v6 in there.
GL and hope all goes well.

So I guess you can call this Mustang a SHOSTANG

Keep up the good work

I guess need update. The MAF hose, radiator hose and AC hose got in way of each other. So solved part of by moving MAF to driver side. Now had to move battery. So it went to passenger side like the 86 and older Mustang. Moved the wires to starter solinoid on the starter. [SHO has solinoid on starter]. Now I took a SHO washer tank and installed on passenger side extended wires for washer pump. Moved the pump hose to that side also. I got the heater hoses and radiator hose done also. I need to update pictures. Wish car was not outside so could work on it more. But MG and tools are in garage. Maurice

latest picture. All this work and all get removed to paint and neaten up. The coil pack after getting it to run is to be removed and replaced with COP. That will neaten it up even more. Notice lot of wiring relocated and passenger side will be also. Maurice

It is a Vert. I almost have more room in the Midget than it does. This will be a driver. I have considered making a box in body under the seat. The MGB has the battery in that location. I am totally unsure if if room exsist. First get car running first. Maurice

It lives and runs. Warning 3.2 open headers so it is noisy. Maurice
