      Definitely fab your own crossover, or have a friend with a welder help!

      Worst case, have a local fab shop do it for you. A buddy with no welder just did a turbo 5.0 stang and it cost him $150 to have the crossover fitted, AND a custom flange mated to his driver's side shorty header to mate the crossover pipe, header, all to the turbo flange. This way, you can make sure it fits in the car. Most of the "kits" require a ton of reworking.

              I think the car was wrecked after it was sold, beyond that no idea. The guy who bought posts on ls1tech iirc.

                  incorrect..
                  you listed the base farmont 4cyl/stick
                  not the 302/auto or inline 6/auto
                  the farmont.. was fords base car.. like todays focus..
                  the monty was a loaded car, even the base one..
                  and it's not that much heavier than the v8/auto farmont..
                  it be under 200lb difference...

                  my non t top loaded monty is 3267 with jack and spare out of trunk
                  and it's a loaded car

                      I understand 100%

                      I hope you enjoy the mustang, being a Ford fan I think you should scrap the sbc and auto and put a ford back in it with a man pedal!

                          so, with the turbo piping im thinking of running LS shorty headers backwards into a crossover pipe. sound like a good idea?

                          and any more specs on the trans in the fairmont? did it run a trans brake or a foot brake?

                          im gonna try to get a 5.3 (or maybe 6.0 if i go that route) at least sitting in the car pretty soon and i still need to sort some of the detals out :D
