this weekend!!! I ordered a '00 GT motor this afternoon, its got 9xxx miles on it got it for $1400 + tax and $50 to ship it from sw il to chicago, not bad imo. This sunday when i return home from the FunFordDay at Great Lakes Drag I will begin to remove the old motor. The new motor is currently still residing in the wrecked stang, they will be pulling it tomorrow or friday, and it should be here on tues/wed. then the fun begins. cant wait, this is something ive never done before so it should be a cool project/challenge. Ive got my digi cam so ill be taking some pics and mabey do a little write up on it when done. but i dunno.

Cool to here that you're joining the ranks of the PI GT'd crew. Wish I had the money and the time to do that. Good luck and look forward to an extensive photographic writeup. :)

Performance Increased. they have better flowing ports and redesigned combustion chambers. They also have much better cams than you stock TBird motor. The PI motors went into mustangs, and the heads went on the 5.4L Tritons in 1999 and newer cars.
