      I am looking at the recent photos and it seems like it a long way to go before you can say that this restoration build is over. The progress looks nice, I am excited to see more of your work for this classic Cougar.

      I returned from LS Fest on Monday and am finally getting back to my regular schedule. What a trip!

      I was gone for ten days and a lot of things happened, so bear with me as I get things posted in some cohesive order. The adventure started around the 30th of August with my friend BA, who has this beautiful 66 Fairlane that he built with his father and son a few years back.




      On August the 30th he got a care package from Pace Performance. In case you don't recognize this engine, it is a LSx454 GM crate engine.





      Out came his LS3...Does my picture of the intake start to make sense now?





      This is a picture of the Fairlane after we drove it for the first time and did some tuning on it. Sadly, I do not have any more progress pictures, but this swap was done in a few days.

      I drove my Cougar from the Kansas City area to the Chicago area on Saturday, September 4th. The next day we rolled the Cougar into the garage to begin the process of removing my 5.3L and installing the LS3.

















      With everything removed, transmission pulled, it was time to take out the old engine to make room for more horsetorques...





      Once the 5.3L was pulled, we started moving everything over from the 5.3L to the LS3. This included the exhaust manifolds, valley cover, accessories, oilpan, etc...The plan was to reuse my old clutch, but when we pulled the old clutch apart, it was obvious that the disk was a little thin. We managed to track down a new disk and pressure plate locally.





      Here is the LS3 with all of the parts bolted to it, ready to go in its new home. We used the new balancer from the LSx454.





      Here is BA, doing his awesome best. Without his help, this would not have been possible. He is a beast with the wrenches.





      LS3 in its new home, resting between the fenders of my Cougar. Its even Ford blue...BA has a sense of humor.





      Everything installed, trans back in, ready for the new intake base with the old upper part.

      I always busted BA's balls for painting the LS3, and of course, I end up with it...

      We did not have time to mess around with a cam swap, and there was no reason for it. The LS3 already had a BTR Stage 2 LS3 cam in it with upgraded springs and pushrods. It's a runner...

      Besides, I think I have other plans for that 5.3L with the Ghost cam...
