    I love the idea that you used a Chevy! What exactly did you have to do the frame and motor mounts? What happened to the Ford frame engine mounts? How was the engine width and height in the chassis?

    Wow you have a ton of cool ideas! The album you started has some really cool pics!:

    Why don't you have a build thread?

Basic Information

About GoDadGo
I'm a wrench swinging banker who never learned to appreciate the game of golf and I'm A-Okay with that.

A lucky fellow I am because I married my High School Sweetheart 33 years ago and we have three great kids.

Our MK-4 is a little different because it is powered by a 383 CID Small Block Dart in front of a ZF 6-Speed transmission.

1. 383 Small Block Dart 10-1 Somewhat Pump Gas Friendly Compression Ratio!
2. Eagle Internally Balanced Rotating Assembly With 6" H-Beam Rods With Floating Forged Flat Tops.
3. Dart Iron Eagle 215 CC Heads with 2.05 Intake & 1.60 Exhaust Valves.
4. Harland Sharp Roller Rockers & Other Go Fast Goodies.
5. Comp Cam Extreme Energy 288 Hydraulic Roller Tappet Cam
6. Edelbrock AVS 800 Feeding A Weiand 7530 Team G Single Plane Manifold.
7. Schoenfeld IMCA Modified Headers & They Really, Really Fit, But Stuff Had To Move A Bit!
8. New Old Stock Corvette ZF 6-Speed Transmission With Hydraulic Clutch. (.75 5th & .50 6th Gear Over Drives)
9. Standard Front End Set Up With Mustang Brakes & Forte’s .75” Sway Bar.
10. Standard 3 Link Moser TSD 500 Rear With 3.73 Gears & Explorer Brakes.
11. The wheelbase has been shortened by .875" to better center the rear wheels within the wheel arches and improve pinion angle adjustment.

While this is not the normal build, I know that the Factory Five Family are thrilled that soon another dream car will be coming to life.

So far I've only met a few FFR owners and if these fellows are any representation of this Forum, then I'm truly in great company.

Hope To See You All Along My Travels, In Your Dream Cars Of Course!

Electric Power Steering Pumps >>> Is Anybody Running Them?

by GoDadGo on 04-06-2016 at 10:11 AM
Hey Gang,

> A friend of mine has a Mini Cooper (2004) and he just changed the power steering pump.
> The unit is electric and quite small and he got the replace from Rock Auto and it was under $300.00.
> My question is anybody running an electric power steering pump?
> It might be a nice way to add it down the road that since the engine accessories are NOT impacted.
