Might be hard to find voodoo engine, and expensive. Have you purchased one yet?

Not yet. I'm sure it will be hard to find and expensive. I am searching now. Progress has bee slow due to building a new house/shop. I'll put a Coyote in there to get by until I can source the Voodoo if I have to. Rear pattern is the same. I'm sure I can make money on a Coyote long term. I already have some of the necessary parts for the upgrade on a F150 based engine. They can be had really cheap. Rods, cams, a few covers and maybe some port work and your over what a Mustang would be. HPTuners (which I already have along with Ford credits) will flash the ECM on either.

Only small steps lately as I'm building a new house with a little nicer garage/shop attached. Has consumed most Z time. 1969honda  and I have been working on the rear a bit. Have the aluminum carrier and he has a complete sub assembly we're going to pull at least the pickup points from. Looking at possibly using hubs and brakes as well. We'll see how it goes.

 

Grabbed a fiberglass spoiler like my old urethane to build on, rockers and some extra new front lenses. Also, parts for a rotisserie.

 

As soon as this house is out of the way and I can focus on more important things I'd really like to get the bodywork package here and the chassis up on the rotisserie.

I've seen a few full Voodoo packages cycle through eBay. Spendy but they're starting to show up. I'm sure prices will come down considerably but fully expect it won't be cheap.

Good to hear one of us is at least accumulating some parts! My life seems to be consumed by work right now as well, found out I'll be gone for a few weekends this month and most of the next month as well

Neat to see another mod-engine buildup.  I tend to forget about the project section of the forum for whatever reason.  Subscribed for more neat-o action :) .
