    Finally getting ready to have the new 427 assembled. Over the weekend, I finished modifying a cradle stand to bolt the Man O War block to. The castings in this block are really thick compared to a stock block 351w. It took some creativity to fit the block to the engine cradle designed for a stock SBF.

    This week I'll gather up and organize all of my parts so I can make machine shop arrangements in the next few days.

    Machining and balancing on the new engine is done. Assembly will be starting in the next few days. As long as there are no problems getting the last few needed parts (bearings, pushrods, gaskets), it should be done pretty soon.

    I also just ordered down and forward headers so I can start figuring out little things like oil filter clearance and motor plate fitment when I get the engine back.

    Here are a couple teaser pics from the machine shop

    I went with stainless works down and forward. 1 7/8" primaries and 3" collectors with V-band flanges welded on. I ordered them from Motion Raceworks.

    The only other option I could find was Pony Down. Valley Speed makes high port headers in small batches but I didn't want to be waiting forever.

    Being stuck at home on weekends with nothing to do, I've been making a lot of progress on small projects I've been putting off.

    Since I bought the car, my passenger window has always been slow to roll up or down. Out of boredom, I finally replaced the power window motor and lubricated the guides. While I was in there, I also replaced a frozen door lock actuator. Currently the power door locks don't work, but I can at least lock both doors now.

    While I had the door apart, I went ahead and replaced the outer belt trim and the window channel seal. Replacing the belt trim was simple, but the window channel was a pain. The old window seal was brittle and hard as a rock. It was difficult and messy to remove. Installing the new seal was a little bit tedious, but not terrible. I'll work on the driver's side next weekend.

    How fast are the windows moving now? The power windows in my 88 are pretty slow. I thought about replacing them but heard it's a foxbody thing. lol

    They are about the same speed as any other car I own. Here is the installation video from LMR. In the last few seconds of the video, they test the window and you can see the speed a new motor runs at.
