Yes a mustang transmission will bolt up to a lightning motor. But the lightning computer is for the e4od and won't run an aode or 4r70w as far as I know.

The lightning used the e4od trans which is basically a c6 with od. So it is physically larger than an aod or 4r70.

What is your elevation? They usually calibrate them for about 1500 ft. If you're higher than that then it will be rich. Also carbs out of the box are set up for a generic engine without specific...

Yeah. The springs were weak so I could turn the key forward a bit and it would fire back up. I know I replaced the switch but I can't remember if I replaced the cylinder.

Msd boxes and coils do this occasionally, seemingly more often than stock. I'd throw the stock ignition components back on and see what happens.

You could get a hydraulic clutch conversion. Pretty spendy but provides softer feel and no cable to stretch.

valve body springs

Tearing down aod valve body that supposedly has a shift kit. Were the factory valve springs colored? I've never tore one down so I don't know. The pressure regulator valve spring is mostly green.

Those are stock heads. The two plugs have the same thread pitch so the correct 25s should work unless they've been cross threaded. The 605s are a little colder plug and also have longer reach in the...

Have you checked your timing with a light? If your dizzy is a tooth off the timing could be retarded. Seen it and done it. It will run but very rich and hot. Made the headers glow.

That is too low. It should be around 40psi without vacuum and somewhere around 30 at idle with vacuum. I'd say your regulator is bad, letting a lot of fuel return to the tank.
