Default OK, after a winter hibernation, ready to finish my project.

The main thing i really need to know is, what Carbeurator and Intake manifold do i need, exactly. Also, what distributor & igniton components. I know i need a Lokar kickdown cable bracket to use the AOD with the carb. I prob want to stick with Edelbrock intake & carb, but need to know which model #'s to purchase.

I have a 87 Notchback that i bought in great running & driving condition in october. I've got a 5.0 HO motor for it, a AOD, and 8.8 rear end. Additionally, i've purchased the following parts. Let me know if theres anything else i need.

Prothane motor mounts
Energy transmission mount
FRPP double hump crossmember
FRPP "B" springs
KYB struts & shocks for v8 car
GT front spindles/rotors/calipers

oh yeah, by the way. Only mods i plan on making at this time other than the conversion to carb is exhaust/headers/xpipe. This will be a daily driver car once i get everything running. this should help with parts recommendation. Thanks

I will probably go with some gears later, but i want to get it running and driveable at first, then make upgrades and modifications later. What im concerned with now are which Carb, Intake, Distributor, and ignition components i should purchase. Thanks.
