Yeah, I have the manual, but they are often wrong!

Keep in mind my donor is a '98 Cobra (yes, I'm going to put the DOHC in there & no, that's not open to discussion :D ).

Can I mark the aluminum firt thing and end up with a good final fit (you know, just tracing the frame and making hash marks)? Thx.

Yes, mark the panels for both holes & hash marks while taking them off.

.....but first, I would double check & inspect all parts right away for shipping damages or missing items.

Oh, and don't forget to set one of the seats in place, unpack the steering wheel,then hop inthe car & make car noises :D .......... this way, everyone at your house will be totally convinced that you have lost your mind. ;)

Good luck on your DOHC project.

YES! Who's is that, do you know? I'm most interested in the headers! Can someone help connect me with the person building that? Maybe I'll start another topic...?

Well, so much for me being first with a DOHC motor. :( Please post pics of your progress.

Enjoy the build, it's a blast.

Ed,

There's a guy in Ocala running a DOHC motor in an FFR. I will try to track down his number for you as he might be helpful answering any questions that come up during the build. It should make a wonderful combo in that car! Good luck with the build and please posts a bunch of pics for us to drool over :D !

Mike

Wasn't there a DOHC FFR at the open house last year?

FIRST: take your wife (or significant other) out to a nice dinner.

SECOND: while at dinner, tell her that you are going to busy for a long while. But, you will think of her often.

THIRD: open an account at a florist. Have flowers sent every few weeks.

FOURTH: invite her into the garage and have her help!!!

Really, just make sure you check off what was delivered vs. what is back ordered. Reference phots are a must before you start to take anything off of the frame. Mark not only the panels with the frame, but also what the panels are (IE: drivers foot box lower etc.)

(Beer, soda and food for the unloading party is good too!)

Good luck and have fun....

Thanks guys, any help / intros will be much appreciated.

On the wife front. that's good advice! I have been a gear head my whole life though so she's used to it. Maybe not something this involved, but she's also heard me tell her 'trust me' lots of times before & so far I'm batting close to 100 - I think this buys me some leeway but I could be way off here :eek: !
