I knew it! You're gonna love opening your hood after that thing goes in there. Just enough space to reach things with big ol' American hands, but not enough to look silly.

LOL! The first photo of the T-5 looked like a dead animal laying on the ground like that with the tranny fluid all around it.

The project is looking good!

Looking good so far. I know what you mean about dreading the electrical. I'm more mechanically inclined, myself.

Detroit motor solutions and other companies make full fiberglass front clips. My experience with taking apart the front ends on fox bodies... Just assumed that was a front clip. Carry on.

Swap is looking good man. It is not always fun to do a 4 Banger to 5.0 swap. Some are easier than others. Your's doesn't look to terrible. (Not the car, it looks good.)

Havent taken any pics lately but ill get some tomorrow. Wires are giving me a hard time. I about had it running today, run for a full 5 seconds then died I did learn that my car (1992 2.3) does not have a fuel pump relay in a normal place like every one elses (under the driver or passenger seat) but mines in a big black metal box with 2 other relays soldered together to a board on the passenger side strut tower area.

Cars a mess right now. I have EVTMs and Factory Ford/Lincoln manuals witch are a life saver But car is completely gutted, no seats, dash, nothing in the trunk, 10,000 wires running all over the place through the car. But itll be running soon....i hope...
