ORIGINAL: P Zero

Its a holley/motorcraft hybrid POS. 85's had em too. Bad things about the 79-85 models, 7.5 rearend, it doesnt hold up to any hard driving for very long. The puny 9" front rotors that over heat VERY easily. Youll want to upgrade to the 87+ 11.86" brakes. 84 specific, the HO motor in there is NOT a roller block, the T-5 is not a world class t-5, the '84 originally came with faux dual exhaust. Theres a Y-pipe that goes in to 1 big cat, then Y's back out after it. Also, factory installed suroof are nice, but make sure that the drain holes arent plugged up. Blow them out with compressed air, otherwise the sunroof will rust from the inside out. Youll never see it coming until it starts to bubble. Also, 1 more thing the drivers seats, where the back hinges to the base have a tendency of breaking/losing bolts. And if it has the 3 spoke TRX rims on it, tires are gonna suck to get. The rim diameter is 390mm, something along the lines of 15.9". You can only get michelin TRX tires for it.
-P.

yeah that is very accuate i must say. only i have had my 7.5 rear in my car and its taken sooooo much abuse and never had a problem. started making noise so i figured it was time to change the fluid put in motorcraft 90-140 synthetic and it was as good as new

Now, what is the aftermarket like? I know fuel-injected 5.0 parts are pretty cheap and that there are alot of different companies that make parts for them as well. Are there many aftermarket companies that make parts for the carb'd 302? Thanks for all of you help everyone, Ive only worked on older Fords so Fox bodies are new to me so Im sorry if Im asking too many questions.

Well the 289/302/351W engines have been around for some 50+ years...

Yeah I would say that the aftermarket is more than you could ever imagine.

its very big its the flat tappet motor so everything you buy for that motor is interchangable with the older 289's and 302's big aftermarket for these cars its nice
