I have been on here a few years, but just bounce around the site looking at everyone else. I have an 88 Coupe that was a 4 cyl. auto converted to a 5 speed 306. Since I bought the car back in April, I have changed a few things on the motor and now I am gutting it and redoing it. I already have a Whippled, SRA, nitrous 03 Cobra, so on this one I plan on finding an 03/04 Cobra that has been wrecked and use the harness and interior out of it, but leaving the motor to sell the rolling shell. I have a spare 03 block that is being built for my Cobra and I'm pulling the stock block and refreshing it and probably going towards a TT setup or a larger Procharger. Ill keep updating the thread as I make progress on the car. Any advice or comments are appreciated. I know many of you have done these conversions and any help or tips would be really helpful. I am only 20 and I am trying to conquer all of this on my own, minus the roll cage that will go in. Now onto the pics and progress:

So far I have pulled the motor and removed most of the interior and pulled the harnesses out. My wife and I are moving to a new house on Weds, so once we get there, the car will go on jackstands and the suspension will come off.

Haha thanks, and yes I live in Clearwater. I can't wait to get my hands on a Cobra though because that is when the fun starts.

Thanks, I love the color of it. The previous owner had it painted, but there are a lot of minor imperfections that you can't see unless you're right on it. I guess it's a 2 foot car :dunno2:
