Didn't you use to have alot of great pics of your installation posted somewhere? After 10 years, the wife's given me and my boy the green light to build my next project. She had an 82 Mustang GT that she dearly loved when we got married. I'd love to built an early 80's coupe. All I remember is that you did a custom crossmember that was a work of art. I don't remember the headers, or whether it was a front or rear sump pan. Any info will be appreciated. Keeping the wife on board on this project would be worth more than money!    LOL                    Thanks, DJ

Thanks Mike

Lets just say that I like to do my research before starting a new project.....and a picture is worth a thousand words.

Thanks, Stiney. That's the magazine article I remember! That's the one that got me started down this road. The car ran 9's with the 4 lug wheels??
 The picks of your engine install, and oil pan with dimensions for the sump are greatly appreciated. The headers are very slick. Looks like they're ceramic coated? Are they off the shelf pieces I could buy??

Whoa IndyDave.......while I can answer a few questions, all credit goes to LUXLX.   He is the pioneer and a welding fool.......

I am only the picture slut....... and a future 500/fox swap driver.

But I am 99% sure that the headers are hand-built by Sean.  Definitely ceramic coated.

 And I am also 99% sure that that same car still has 4 lug wheels to this day (now big block chevy powered though - he sold it)  Nothing wrong with 4-luggers, they can be beefed the same as 5 lugs.  Advantage to 5-lugs is wider wheel selection.

I'm ok now...   Really.      Took a cold shower and I'm back for more. I like the run watcha brung articles much more then the PHR EMC nonsense. Nuthin epitomized that better than Sean's coupe.

Thanks for the kind words guyz. Still say the Fox is the best/easiest swap for the Cad. I have more pics not online I can dig up if anyone needs them.
  The red Fox was the one used to make Maddogs trans mount, which now has a sbc.
